Lorac Mega Pro 3 Palette Review & Comparison

For those of you that haven't heard of the brand Lorac, run out and grab one of their Pro palettes, even if it isn't this one. Honestly their eye shadows are always my go to. I truly don't reach for ANY of my other eyeshadow palettes except for these because they're that good. They're pigmented, buttery and super blendable. By far my favorite formula, I don't think any other brand holds a candle to their pro eye shadows. So what is the Mega Pro palette you ask? Lorac comes out with these Mega Pro palettes during the holidays each year that are twice the size of their original Pro palettes with 32 shadows rather than 16. Their original Pro palettes have 2 rows of 8 shadows and as pictured below, the Mega Pro has 4 rows of 8 shadows. The top two rows are matte shadows and the bottom two rows are shimmery. It retails for $59 which if you divide that by the 32 shadows that are in the palette, that makes each individual shadow only $1.85 a piece which is such a steal! The regular Pro palettes are $44 so for $15 more you get an extra 16 shadows! 
I personally love the shade selection they choose because they tend to put a lot of wearable colors as well as neutrals and I'm a neutral kind of gal so they're right up my alley. 
Below is the Mega Pro collection. The first one is the burgundy and gold packaging, the second one is the cobalt and silver, and the third is the white and rose gold. I personally love the packaging on these, the only down side is the material of them, which is like a rubbery feeling that's really hard to describe, gets dirty pretty quickly, but otherwise they're stunning. 
Below is a picture of all 3 palettes and you can see they're pretty similar but me being a makeup collector and how much I love their shadows, I can never pass up these limited edition palettes. I personally thing they're worth every penny and I definitely get my use out of them.

What I Got For Christmas: Haul

Christmas is such a beautiful time of the year. Merry (late) Christmas to all of those that celebrate! I hope you had a wonderful one. I know many people celebrate other holidays, but I personally celebrate Christmas so I wanted to share with you my gifts. Please note these have been accumulated from the end of August until now so I've probably posted about these prior in hauls and such but for those of you that keep up with me, you know that I take pictures to post for all of you (sometimes swatch) and then I put them away for Christmas. That means no touching them again. The torture is reaaaaall, but it's so satisfying seeing everything accumulate and pile up. Because it's only a day after Christmas, I haven't tested many of these items out. If you'd like reviews on specific products, leave a comment below :) Disclaimer: this is not to brag. I personally like seeing hauls and what other people get so I'm sure there are others out there who feel the same. Please know I am well aware how truly blessed I am and I don't take it for granted one bit. 

I know a lot of people ask for purses and jewelry, but I have way more than enough handbags and jewelry and truthfully I think it's a bit overrated. Makeup is my passion and I love sharing with all of you so that's what I asked for.
