You ready? Got that bagel and beverage in hand? Ok let’s get started!

This palette launched in Ulta stores this past Monday. I was able to get my hands on it a bit sooner as they gave early access to platinum rewards members. So I’ve had pretty much a full week to play with this thing.

This palette is limited edition and an Ulta exclusive. It has 32 shadows (16 matte and 16 shimmer). Lorac states 30 shades are brand new and 2 are “essentials” (Snow & Jet Black). It retails for $59. The packaging is white with rose gold lettering. It’s very pretty, but… white? What were they thinking? This is going to get so dirty so fast!

The formula is what I’ve come to expect from Lorac – soft, buttery and pigmented. I was so unimpressed with the Pro 3 palette after swatching it in-store as the consistency was just not there, so I was a little apprehensive about this palette. But I’m happy to announce that is not the case with the Mega Pro 3 and the consistency I’ve come to know and love from Lorac is there.

The shadows are more on the warm side and a lot of neutral shades, making it great for fall. There some great transition and crease shades in the mattes. I especially love Pecan, & Toffee as transition shades and Hickory & Bark in the crease for added depth. Violey Gray is so unique and you can use it sheered out for a transition shade or build it up for in the crease.ย The shimmers are all so beautiful. Pink Bronze is very pretty and unique. Olive is more of a gold olive than green olive. It’s hard to see in photos, but Licorice is a black with flecks of purple/magenta. Pomegranate is a bright, fun pop of color. The apply and blend just as well as shadows from other Lorac palettes. I always use an eye primer/base (which helps any shadow achieve its full potential) and they last all day on me.

Overall, Lorac has another winner on their hands! I’m glad I decided to bite the bullet and get this. I highly recommend snagging it before it sells out.

  1. Oh my GOSH. This is a stunner. I can see from your swatches how pigmented and smooth those are! The shade Vintage is jumping out at me. Do you find the formulas in the mattes and shimmers to be equal or are the shimmers better?
