This new palette from LORAC is a travel version of the famous Pro palette. It comes with 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, and 1 bronzer. The quality of the shadows, blushes, and bronzer are of LORAC quality; smooth, buttery, just all around easy to apply.
When folded, the palette can get bulky but I think this is a nice change. It fits perfectly in my small hand and I really like the magnetic closure on both sides. The two supplied brushes are almost useless in my opinion. The handles are really small and hard to control. The hair is not the softest either. But this palette is meant for travel so I suppose they are made smaller for that reason.
The eyeshadows are a tiny bit powdery. To help with the fallout, I usually tap the excess off the brush before applying on the lids. Apply over eye primer and you will get a more intense color pay off and longer wear.
I like to put Shell as a base color and layer on top with Chai to give my lids a golden sheen. I use Mink on the crease and Black to line the outer corners. Café is such a perfect transition color above the crease and below browbones. Pearl can be used as a highlighter for both browbones and cheeks.
I love that LORAC includes both coral and pink shades for blushes. Coral is a little shimmery while Pink is completely matte. I wish there was a highlighter shade too but one can double use Pearl or Shell eyeshadow to supplement. The bronzer is a nice matte that is not too orange. All cheek colors show up on my skin of NC30 perfectly.
Personally I think this is a good all-around travel palette to have both for beginners and advanced users. It provides the basic, fool-proof colors for day to night looks. $38 for 6 eyeshadows, 2 mini brushes, 2 blushes, and a bronzer, is a pretty good deal. They are easy neutral colors that would go with every outfit and occasion.
