So this is part two to the post that went up yesterday which was my first impressions and swatches of the Lorac Pirates of the Caribbean Eyeshadow Palette. Today, I will be sharing my final review and also sharing a few eye looks that I put together using this palette.
As for the shade selection, I think Lorac could have done a little better. There are a few shades that seem too similar, like Ghostly, Shiver Me, and Matt-Y. They are all white shades just slightly different when you swatch them out. But when you use them on the eyes, they are going to be used the same way (as an inner corner and brow bone highlight) and they all look the same on the eyes. I think Lorac could have eliminated two of those and added something else.
I will say that I like all of the shade names. They are all themed around Pirates of the Caribbean. I like that they were consistent and pretty clever.
Like I mentioned in my first impressions, all of these shades are buttery soft to swatch. They feel similar to an Anastasia Beverly Hills’ shadows. They are all pretty pigmented and consistent quality. I like the way they blend on the eyes and they have a great wear time even without primer. Here are a couple of looks that I put together using this palette!
This first look I HAD to incorporate the green shimmery shade, Sea Haze. I was instantly drawn to that shade. So I started with Pirates Chest and blended that into my crease as a transition shade. I then took Menace which is the darker matte green and blended that into my outer v of my eyelid. This shade got a little patchy as I was trying to blend it but I was able to stamp it on with a packer brush to make it more even.
I then took Sea Haze and stamped that onto the inner half of my eyelid. I had to use my finger to make the color stand out more. I then took Shiver Me and highlighted my brow bone and swept it on my lower lash line. I also brought Menace the tiniest bit on my lower, outer lash line. And that completed the look!
For the next look, I took Bones and blended that into my crease as my transition shade. I then took Tell No Tales which is a mauve-y shade, on the inner corner and the outer v of my eye to kind of create that halo outline. I left the center of my eyelid clear. I then took Tell No Tales and blended that a little on my lower lash line for some cohesiveness. I then took Compass and stamped that onto the center of my eyelid and swept it on my lower lash line from the inner corner to a little over half way out. And that completed the look!
Let me know your thoughts on these looks and this palette! I am sure you could still find it at TJ MAXX or Nordstrom Rack if you are interested! Also let me know your FAVORITE Pirates of the Caribbean Movie below! I would love to know. (Mine will always be the first one, The Curse of The Black Pearl).
