Lorac Sweet Temptations Eyeshadow Collection

Posted by Kristen Williford at 7:05 AM

Pardon the cheesy play on words, but this palette is pretty sweet.  It is no secret that I am a sap for eyeshadows with cute packaging.  When I saw this Ulta exclusive set, my sweet tooth went crazy.  This collection comes with 4 delectable palettes named after various sweet treats and in different color schemes.

The Palettes
1.) Satisfying Toffee Crunch: champagne shimmer, copper, bronze and matte brown.

2.) Indulge In White Chocolate: Dramtic Shadows including a cream golden sheen, metallic silver, shimmery charcoal and black with silver microglitter.

3.) Tantalizing Dark Chocolate: shimmery beige, light golden bronze, copper and shimmery dark brown.

4.) Tease Me Truffles: includes a pale shimmery lilac, pink tinged purple shimmer, plum and matte black.

Pigment, Texture and Staying Power
As you can see from the swatches, the pigment is pretty amazing.  And that is without primer.  As for the texture, they are very smooth and soft.  Not quite as fantastic as the Lorac Pro Palette, but almost.  None of the shades are powdery, but a few lean on the chalky side.  These include the dark shades from Tease Me Truffles and Indulge in White Chocolate.  They apply very well and blend easily.  The only exception are the chalky shades.  They can be a little bit more difficult to blend out.  The staying power is great without primer, but when used with one, these shadows are not going anywhere.  They stay on all day long.

Price and Packaging
This set is an Ulta Exclusive and costs $36, which is a pretty good deal.  You get a large amount of each individual eyeshadow.  Each palette comes in a container that looks just like a chocolate bar.  Each one comes with it's own mirror (thank you Lorac) and they have magnetic closure, so no worries about travel.  They are very sturdy.

Overall Impression
I adore this palette.  Besides being a sap for the cute packaging, the shadows are of great quality.  I have only tried a few Lorac products, but they continue to impress me.  This set would make a great gift for someone, or perhaps even a little treat for yourself.
