I recently purchased the Lorac Holiday set called The Royal Collection. I know that many people are waiting for the Lorac Mega palette. I, myself would love to have it too. The Royal Eye Shadow collection however is just as wonderful to have. It is an Ulta exclusive, you get 4 palettes that have 4 eye shadows each, 16 eye shadows in all. This product has a value of $103.00 and you can buy it for $38.00, that is a savings of $65.00
The first of the four palettes is called Queen. It has four shadows a highlight shade, a champagne, a burgundy that reads almost brown, and a matte black. Of the four palettes this has one shade that on fairer skin is hard to see. The shadows are all pigmented and creamy, little to no fall out. If you like the Pro palettes then you will love these shadows.
The second palette is the Countess palette. This palette has a hunter green theme. It has a highlight shade, a tan, light brown and a matte hunter green shadow. I love how pigmented the matte shadows are in this collection. Again the shadows are creamy and don’t have a lot of fall out. Perfect for fall.
The third palette is called the Princess Palette. This palette is my favorite. It is the gold theme of the collection. You get a highlight, gold, bronze, and a darker bronze shade. This is the only palette that does not have a matte shade, but considering the quality of the shadows I really don’t mind the lack of the matte shade. This palette is perfect for the everyday natural look as well as it is perfect for fall and the upcoming holiday season.
The last palette of the collection is the Duchess palette. This palette is the coolest of the palette and has a silver, navy blue them to it. You get a white, light silver, a darker silver that has a satin finish and a matte navy blue. I have to say it again that the matte shades in this palette are wonderful.
This 16 shade collection is wonderful it has warm shades and cool shades. The pigmentation is wonderful. I like how easily the apply and blend. This collection is perfect for the fall, but it is also perfect for everyday and evening looks. I think for $38.00 this is a steal. You can keep all four of the palettes for yourself or you can take them apart and gift the different palettes as stocking stuffers.
