Check out my previous LORAC review and tutorial HERE!



Starry-Eyed
Baked Eye Shadow Trio
Buy it HERE
$25
LORAC came out with new shades for their Starry-Eyed trio shadows.
This one is called Star-Studded.
It comes with a creamy highlight shade, a orange-bronze, and an olive green shade.
Easily create a Red Carpet smoky-eye with these color-coordinating shades of shimmering baked shadow. Baked on terra cotta to create a silky-smooth unique texture, these highly pigmented, long-lasting shades are designed to be applied either wet, for a more dramatic effect, or dry for a natural look. Highlight, contour, line, define and captivate your audience with sexy, sultry, starry eyes!
These colors have a metallic sheen to them.
They are super pigmented and I must get more (Star Struck looks amazing)!

Imagine what the color payoff is when used wet, AMAZING!

-Carol use Perfectly Lit to highlight cheekbones, or she uses it over makeup on the entire face for a flawless, luminous finish.
This is a product that I think doesn't get enough attention!
It has a consistency like NO other luminizer/highlighter/etc. that I have ever tried.
I agree that it is definitely a unique formula, unlike anything else.
Think of it as a more mature version of MAC Mineralize Skin Finish (like Soft and Gentle)... It's a beautiful highlighter but the texture is MUCH MUCH MORE softer than MSF's.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This is seriously something everyone needs to check out asap at their local Sephora!!
