I’ve had this palette a while & I finally feel like I can give it an honest review! Originally, I was put off by the price… £7.99 for 120 Colours seemed cheap, too cheap. As an avid fan of Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I was sceptical about the quality of the LaRoc Palettes. However, I couldn’t be more wrong…
With such a huge range of colours to choose from, the looks you can create are endless! The palette includes shades ranging from shimmer to matte, light to dark.
First off, I would recommend investing in a decent brush to blend the eyeshadow with to achieve that pigmented look. I’ve been using brushes from the Real Technique’s Eye Starter Kit (which I previously reviewed here). I would also recommend using a primer on your eyelids to keep the eyeshadow in place. I’ve been using the Milani Eyeshadow Primer in Nude, you only need a dot to keep the colour payoff strong and long-wearing throughout the day.
The palette itself is very handy & convenient. The shadows are on two separate trays for easy access and also stack on top of each other for storage, ideal!
Despite their price, the palette is extremely pigmented and as I’ve mentioned before, the shades are easily blendable and buildable. It’s a great palette to purchase for beginners just starting to experiment with new eye looks.
Some negatives… certain eyeshadows are more pigmented than others, however, one trick I found to overcome this issue was wetting your brush very slightly prior to application. This made the eyeshadow a lot more vibrant on my eyelid. The eyeshadow pods are quite shallow and I have noticed they can be slightly crumbly, so if you really love a colour it can run out quickly. However, for the price, I cannot complain.
Overall, I am incredibly impressed with the price and pigmentation of this eyeshadow palette. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. It’s not hard to see why many professional makeup artists are lusting over this palette!
