Review: Lorac Mega Pro Palette

Hello everyone! I recently posted a picture on my Instagram of a palette that I recently bought from Lorac, and of course I'm going to be doing a review on it! In the UK this palette can vary from £20-£200, it's quite crazy actually! You just have to find a good seller. 



As you can see, there is a huge range of cool and warm toned eyeshadows. The first two rows of eyeshadows are all mattes. And the last two rows vary from shimmer and satin shadows. 

Pros:
- Great pigmentation
- Very creamy
- The colours blend out easily and seamlessly
- Good variety of shades, you can do a day or night makeup look with this palette
- The packaging is very sleek and thin, so it's easy to travel with

Cons:
- Too many white and black shades
- I am disappointed with the shade "DEEP TEAL" & "INDIGO" as they come out as more of a black colour than what the name actually says.

Swatches:

~First Row~



~Second Row~



~Third Row~



~Fourth Row~



The only downside to this palette would be that I wished that the shade "DEEP TEAL" had more green in it in oppose to black. I also would say that the shade "INDIGO" looks like such a stunning shade, but in my swatch you can't even see the glitters, which is a shame because it has a range of blue and purple glitters, and in the swatch it just looks black. 
Overall, I would recommend this palette, as there are some really unique and beautiful colours and the pigmentation and quality is spot on! I would really recommend this palette for makeup artists as it's such a great product to have in your kit, as it saves a lot of space and you do also have a great range of shades! The colours also blend out really quickly and beautifully, so it would save you a lot of time and blending whilst you're on set/working on a client.

A Day at the Zoo

Today's blog post is quite a bit different from what I usually post on my blog. I thought it would be great to record where I went yesterday with my brother and father. My parents took me to this exact place as a child, I think I was around six or seven years old, and to have been back there yesterday really brought back a lot of memories. 
I did take quite a few pictures, so I thought I'd share them all with you guys! But the sole purpose of this post, is to document something memorable, so that I could look back on it in the future.
