Lorac Pro 3!….Let’s talk about it.


Either you love or hate the Lorac Pro eyeshadow formula. In my case I really do enjoy it. That is one of the reasons why I went ahead and ordered this palette right when I had access to it. Unfortunately, it’s not what I was expecting .. So back to Ulta it will go. I gotta say I and very disappointed. I really wanted to enjoy this palette as much as I enjoy the previous 2. The shadows are very velvety and easy to work with, the quality is there (with the exception of Medallion, that is just a mess of chunky glitter). My biggest complaint is that the shimmer shadows are very soft and barely show on the eye. Granted, the shadows can be used wet but I did not try to apply them that way. I expected a pop of shimmer/ color, something that I didn’t get with the majority of the shades in the bottom row. For the price ($44.00), I expect for the shadows to impress me and give me unique looks. 



For the price, this palette doesn’t offer enough. Did you purchase the Lorac Pro 3? What are your thoughts?

Quick Review: Cucumber Gel Mask 

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask.  

 
  
Claims: 

•Refreshing •Cooling •Moisturizing •Calming gel helps soothe dry, irritated skin with extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, sugar, maple, sugarcane, orange, lemon, bilberry, aloe •For all Skin Types

Directions:

 Apply a generous coat on clean skin. Rinse after 10 minutes with cool water. Use 2-3 times a week or daily. 

Review: 

This is a lightweight gel mask that is very refreshing and cooling the second I apply it to my face. It’s gentle enough to use daily but I only use it once a week. Once I remove the mask my skin feels very smooth and hydrated and ready for makeup application.  It is very pricey, $52.00 for 5.0 oz but I have been using a sample size of 0.5 fl oz and so far I have been able to get about 5 uses out of it and I’m not half way done with it, a little goes a long way.  I’m very happy with the results of this mask. I will purchase the full size. You can find Peter Thomas Roth masks at: Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Peter Thomas Roth website.

Have you tried any of the Peter Thomas Roth? If so, what are your thoughts? Have you tried this cucumber mask? Any recommendations for a cheaper alternative?
