I finally used my Sephora VIP welcome coupon and bought the Lorac Doublebooked eyeshadow set, because I have heard a lot of good things about Lorac’s eyeshadows. This goodie box was released during the Holiday 2009 season and I still see some in stock at my local Sephoras selling for $75 CAD. I was on a hunt for something new to try and to experience other brands.
Lorac’s full face kit includes two tiers divided into 8 cool and 8 warm colour coordinated eyeshadows. The cool eyeshadows include a row of pinks/purples and a row of grays and a black. The cool tier also has a highlighter, a cool tone blush and two shades of lipglosses. The second tier include warm eyeshadow colours in a row of gold, a row of bronzes, a warm tone blush and a bronzer. There is also a neutral colour lip pencil and a dual sided eyeshadow/liner brush. This set is encased in a metallic platinum colour jewellery box, where you can keep the matching palette or your jewellery.
All the colours in each row coordinate together quite well and Lorac designed the colours to be worn together to create the classic Lorac smokey eye. Of course, don’t be afraid to mix and match the colours together because I can see a several colour combinations between each row in each cool and warm tier. I haven’t tried any items in this palette yet and I will be back in a few days with a review and swatches. Stay tuned.
