LORAC Winter Rose Mini PRO Eyeshadow Palette Assessment & Swatches

Winter Rose

LORAC Winter Rose Mini PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($15.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes three matte shades paired with three more shimmery shades (though one was a satin). I wish the first two shimmers had more differentiation, for a six-pan palette, but all of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy to use with good longevity without aid of a primer.

Twinkle

Twinkle is a bright, yellowy pale gold with warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely without having to use it with a fingertip or a dampened brush as the texture had light creaminess to it. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

In 2020, the brand reformulated their PRO eyeshadows and released new palettes (and new shades, however new-new they might be). The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” that “last[s] without creasing” and “blend[s] effortlessly.” Each eyeshadow can also be removed from its respective palette–there’s an included tool to do so–to rearrange the palette or depot (nice touch!).

The mattes felt less thin and were not quite as dry as the prior formula–a bit silkier–though the matte eyeshadows are still lightly to moderately powdery with light fallout but are blendable. I think it’s a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.

For the most part, they were easy to use with most shades lasting between seven and eight hours, which is average, so the longevity wasn’t any better/worse than most eyeshadows on the market (including the prior formula).

Everglow

Everglow is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It appeared significantly lighter and warmer-toned than it appeared in the pan. It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
