So how fitting is it that I post about my LORAC Resort Eye & Cheek palette, a palette intended to go with you to warm, sunshiney vacation spots? Very fitting, I think! I'm not sure what the availability of this palette is; I know it was sold for a limited time online for $20 (I'm still convinced it sold for this at one point, but the retail sticker on my box says it was $15), then it was on Hautelook for $15 (I think; somewhere around there), and then it was in Nordstrom Racks for $14.97, which is where I got mine! There were about ten left when I picked mine up a couple weeks ago, so if you are still looking for this palette (if you're interested in it at all, I'd say get since it's so affordable!) you might be able to find it.
For less than $15 (at least if you get it from Nordstrom Rack), you get six eyeshadows, two blushes, a bronzer, and a highlighter. It's a great deal and the quality of the shadows and cheek products are really good, especially for the price.
Surprisingly enough, while I do own some LORAC eyeshadow palettes (the summer 2014 palette from Ulta and the mint holiday palette from Sephora), but I don't own any of the Pro palettes. I've heard that the shadows in the Pro palettes are better quality/better performing than the shadows in LORAC's other palettes. Unfortunately, because of this, I'm not able to compare the quality/performance of the shadows in the Resort palette to the Pro palettes, but I can compare them to the other LORAC palettes I have. And I have to say, I think these shadows are a little bit better! They have a better texture and I find the shadows to be more consistent in pigmentation and performance. I will say, though, that the blush in my mint palette is awesome and is similar to the cheek products in this palette in quality.
The colors don't have individual names or anything , so I labeled them 1 through 10 going left to right starting on the top row, then moving on to the bottom. Which means we'll start with the highlight!
Thanks for reading! <3
