The LORAC Pro Palette and Tarte Holiday 2013 Blush Palette

I went a little crazy and bought 3 new eye shadow palettes. I got the LORAC Pro Palette, the KVD Spellbinding palette, and the IT Cosmetics Naturally Gorgeous Matte palette (this one won't ship until December so I can't review it now).  I also bought the Tarte Holiday blush palette with three blushes and a bronzer. 

Today I'm going to review the LORAC Pro palette because it is the only one I've used so far. Overall this is a really nice group of clours for creating professional and classic looks. By that I mean you can create many soft, simple, pretty looks that would be appropriate for the office or for everyday if you like a simple look. You can also do a variety of somkey eye looks with this pallet because there are good dark and mid-tone shades. I do get quite a bit of fall out when using the darker colours wet as liners. That was a little surprising because usually eye shadows that can be used wet or dry make a paste when you use them wet, and these don't quite do that.

I did a few looks with this palette and I am wearing the Tarte blushes with each of these looks. In one look I used the Lorac Liquid Luster in Amethyst from the holiday set. I really like the new liquid luster colours and they add a really nice pop of sparkle to all those matte shades in the pro palette!

Here is the Pro Palette

Here is the Tarte Blush palette:

I also used the face pallet from Bare Escentuals with these looks. I really like the concealer that comes in the palette and I love having everything you need for your face in one place. I have it in Fairly Light:
