Today I'm finally posting the swatches of the New LORAC Pro 2 palette! I've recently uploaded a video onto YouTube sharing my thoughts, quick swatches and eye makeup of the day featuring this palette. If you haven't watched, click here to see that video.
I heard about this palette a little while ago when LORAC Cosmetics did a sneak peek on Instagram and I knew then that I had to get my hands on this baby. A few weeks back after seeing the sneak peek, I had no idea what direction the Pro 2 was going to take. I didn't know what to expect but I am very happy with this one too. It was released online at Ulta.com June 15th and I ordered mine right away. It will officially be available in stores on June 29th.
This palette is designed like the first Pro palette with 8 matte eyeshadows and 8 shimmer eyeshadows. You also receive with the palette a mini Behind the Scenes eyeshadow primer that is very good. The palette retails for $42, and I believe the price is just right. I absolutely adore the first Pro palette and I'm in love with the second Pro 2 palette. The pigmentation, quality and color ranges are fantastic.
Here are the photos::

As you can see from the swatches the eyeshadows are very pigmented. They feel very soft, velvety and smooth. Overall, I think LORAC did an amazing job formulating the eyeshadows and picking the right colors for the Pro 2 palette.
