Lorac Pro to Go palette ($38) holds a pretty combination of blush (2), bronzer (1), and eye shadows (3 matte and 3 shimmery). It has a handy way of folding up so that you can open the shadows, blushes and bronzer or have it all open at once.
The eye shadows span a neutral range:Pearl (Shimmer), Chai (Shimmer), Mink (Sparkle), Shell (Matte), Café (Matte), and Black (Matte). See the swatches below:
While the matte bronzer aligns well with two blushes: shimmery coral and a matte pink.
So how do they perform? What do I think? Do they play well with mature skin? Should I buy it? Is it travel worthy?
So many questions! So, what do I think… I love the eye shadows in the palette! They are beautiful colors that transfer well, have only minimal fall out, and blend so nicely (just not as buttery as for example Make Up Geek shadows – but still really nicely). The colors leave lots of room for creativity even though there are only six colors. I really enjoy blending the shimmery with the matte colors!
As for the bronzer and blushes. Slightly different review here. The cheek colors are all nice and bendable but the colors are kind of boring to me. The blushes are standard pink and coral. I tend to prefer mixes across colors. The bronzer is very nice as well but just not anything fabulous. It does apply well and seems to be a suitable color that will work for most skin colors; however, when I put it on it did not make me go “wow”! Good – maybe very good – but not amazing.
As for working for mature skin – no problems at all. The products all blend well and given the minimal fall out, they do not stray into off limits territory (under eye lines).
Is it travel worthy. First, would I be happy taking just this palette for my cheeks and eyes? Yes, I would but if i was traveling for more than two days, I may want to bring another cheek color. The palette itself is constructed so well, and I love the way it opens up! It also comes with two very small brushes, but I found those to be useless to me. This compact also is rather rugged so I think it could handle some rough and tumble in the baggage claim. All in all – yes! I would travel with this especially because I LOVE the eye shadows!!
Here is my overall rating:
