Review: I am definitely late to the party especially when it comes to reviewing this product since I purchased this online from Macy's sale back in December. However, I was able to do a live GRWM try-on of these shadows on my Instagram stories showing pigment, its ability to blend on its own or on top of other shadows and various shade selection for a neutral glam look. This is my very first Lorac palette so I was ecstatic getting one where I know all the shades will be useful and will be loved. The palette comes in a matte black box with white typography along with white and silver floral design. The actual palette is made out of a sturdy cardboard with a large mirror and 16 eyeshadow pans. I love that this palette is very thin - nice and sleek. The name of each shade is printed on the palette which I find very useful. There are 9 shimmer shades, 6 matte shades and 1 satin finish shade on this palette. The shimmer shades are beautiful. They provide a nice wash of color on the lids without being too chunky or heavy (see swatches below). It is really perfect for a soft and vintage glam. The mattes are pigmented and blend nicely on its own and on top of other shadows. The satin shade is also beautiful and creamy. Chiffon is probably my least favorite shade in this palette because you can find this shade in any neutral palette but it also lacks luster compared to the rest of the shimmer shades. Other than that, it is not a deal-breaker.
The formula of these shadows are long-wearing. I wore it for over 10 hours and they held up pretty nicely on the eyes. This is a perfect every day palette but it is also very much able to perform and create an intense glam for night time occasions or events. This Pro Palette Vintage Glamour has a comparable color story to the Natasha Denona Glam Palette. Now, the formula and price range are totally different. However, if you don't own either palette and are trying to decide which one to get, see the comparison swatches below (Left swatches are the Natasha Denona Palette and the Right Swatches are the Lorac Pro Palette Vintage Glamour). The last I know of is this palette was on sale on the Lorac's website for 50% off during Valentine's Day weekend. I am not sure if that is still the case once this review is up. I definitely recommend this palette if you love neutral tones and prefer this type of look for your daily makeup routine. This palette is very easy to use. It's think and sleek that it does not take a lot of storage space. All the shades are creamy and easy to blend as well as long-wearing. I highly recommend this palette.
