Review & Swatches: LORAC Little Lace Palettes in Smolder and Ravish


LORAC Little Lace Palette in Smolder

I'm not one to take my makeup to-go during the day, but I might have just found the palettes worth packing a bag for. While perusing Hautelook one day, I came across a LORAC event that only contained 2 palettes – Smolder and Ravish. With configurations like the GLOgetter palette, and the quality I've come to expect from LORAC products, but with a $12 price tag, I knew these were must-trys. Little did I know, these 10-pan impersonators were actually half the size of the original and perfect for throwing in your purse – or even a wristlette!

The Smolder palette is full of smoky grays and plums, along with two highlight shades – shimmery white and shimmery cream. Ravish is warmer overall with a spectrum of browns, an emerald green, and cream highlight shades. All but one of the shadows (a semi-matte deep brown in the Ravish palette) are shimmery, but they aren't so shimmery that they get muddy together when used as blending shades. All of the shadows live up to the LORAC standard I know and love. Although not as smooth and buttery as those in the Pro Palette, they are similar in consistency and pigmentation to those in the GLOgetter palette – although at least half the size.

The palettes are sleek and compact with optimally packed eyeshadows – no wasted space for sponge-tip applicators I instantly lose. When I first discovered how small each palette is, my main concern was being able to fit a full size brush in each pan. Luckily, they are just big enough to be functional, yet small enough to keep the whole compact, well, compact.

For $12, these are some great little palettes to have when traveling or even to take along to touch up during a long day or transition from day to night. To my knowledge, they are only available on Hautelook, but I've seen them on pretty frequently lately. Still snag them while you can because sales come and go within days and it's hard to tell when brands will reappear.
