Lorac Pro to Go is a compact, travel-friendly palette containing 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, a bronzer, an eyeshadow brush, and an eyeliner brush. The eyeshadows remain in the neutral family and the cheek colors are nice natural shades, neither too bright nor too unnatural in texture. The palette costs $38, contains a total of .8 oz / 23 grams of product, and is available exclusively at Sephora.
- Pearl – Shimmery light beige with silver sparkles.
- Chai – High-shimmer copper bronze, a little darker and slightly less shimmery/frosted than Urban Decay Chopper.
- Mink – Plum-toned dark brown with pink and gold sparkles.
- Shell – True satin light nude. Lorac describes this as matte but it isn’t really. It has a sheen that is neither sparkly nor frosty.
- Cafe – Warm terra cotta brown, matte base with tiny sparkles. The sparkles are not really noticeable on the eyes.
- Black – Matte black, not the blackest black but certainly dark enough to use as an eyeliner or to deepen the crease.
- Coral – Peachy pink with very fine golden sparkles. Coral’s satin finish gives a nice glow to the cheeks without being glittery or frosty looking.
- Pink – Matte medium pink. A basic pink that will suit most complexions – similar to Mac’s Pink Swoon or Smashbox’s Radiance.
- Bronze – Matte medium brown. Not far off in color from Nars Laguna but does appear slightly warmer.
The eyeshadows, blushes, and bronzer all had a soft, smooth texture. I wouldn’t describe them as buttery because they have a somewhat drier feel to them but were not gritty at all. They had good color payoff, didn’t stain the skin, and blended easily. There is no fragrance in the product but it does have a light powdery smell to it.
I found all the colors to be very wearable and they all complement each other nicely. I am not one to normally go for copper bronze colors like Chai but in this case it adds a nice extra pop to the look because it is so complementary to the other shades. Cafe was just tad warmer than I prefer but not so much that I couldn’t make it work.
This palette folds up in a unique way. When I saw it on Sephora’s website I thought it was just a standard bi-fold palette but it’s actually a quad-fold palette. I admit I found it strange at first but it’s actually quite handy and becomes nice and compact. It is made of the same material as the Lorac Pro Palette and has a large mirror on each side of the quad-fold (one for the blushes, and one for the eyeshadows). The two brushes are soft and have a good density but they are really tiny.
I wore the eyeshadows for 6 hours with no primer before they started to crease. Worn over primer they lasted 8 hours without creasing. The blushes and bronzer lasted all day without becoming faded or splotchy.
All in all, this is a good palette and not exorbitantly expensive for what you get. The quality of the eyeshadows and cheek products are great and all the shades work well together.
