One of the most buzzed-about line of palettes is the Lorac Pro eyeshadow line. It's a favorite of beauty bloggers everywhere (including me), so when the third palette was announced earlier this year, anticipation was high.

The Lorac Pro 3 is quite a rosy-toned palette, as you can see from the pictures above, but it's not completely rose-toned (a la Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette). There's a nice mix of roses, browns, and burgundies to make it wearable, even into the fall season.

The matte shades in this palette are incredibly soft and buttery, very reminiscent of the first two palettes. But where this palette falls short, unfortunately, is in the shimmer shadows. The shimmer is quite muted and not that shimmery when applied to the eyes. I've found I have to reach for other palettes or single shadows to make up for the lack of punch the shimmer shades don't provide.

I'd recommend saving your money if you planned on purchasing this palette, hoping it'd perform like its predecessors. BUT if you have more mature skin and are looking for a palette with a hint of shimmer that won't emphasize fine lines, this could be a great choice.
