I’m a big fan of Lorac eye shadow palettes. So my sole purchase during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty was the Lorac Riesling Romance Eye Shadow Palette.
This pretty and portable limited edition palette came out in late November 2015 and was the Cyber Monday special at Ulta. I missed it then and didn’t want to miss it this time around since it’s going away. I picked up an extra one to giveaway to one lucky winner!
The palette is gold foil, has a good size mirror, and a magnetic closure. Its small size (a tad bigger than 3 x 4 inches) makes it great for travel or keeping in your purse.
Similar to Champagne Dreams, the 2014 Lorac Holiday shadow palette, Riesling Romance is a warm, neutral palette with a mix of mattes, pearls, and shimmers with a bit of sparkle thrown in for good measure, since this is a holiday palette after all.
But this palette doesn’t shout. It’s soft and tasteful. The shades are beigey, rosy, coppery, pinks and browns. They don’t have names but this is how I would describe each of them from left to right, top then bottom rows:
- pale pink/beige matte: my exact skin tone
- medium pink pearl
- rose gold shimmer
- medium brown matte
- blackened brown with just a hint of gold glitter
- white ice pearl
- copper shimmer
The shadows are buttery and a bit powdery but nothing you can’t handle. They go on and blend easily. IMHO applying them over eye primer works best.
Here are the swatches on my light, cool-toned skin, applied over Milani Eye Primer, in natural daylight (very gloomy and dark out today) and in artificial light. Because the first shade (pale pink/beige) is my exact skin tone, I applied that one wet so you can see it a little better.
