Hautelook Mini Haul - LORAC palettes and Lustre Drops

**all items purchased by me

I've been super easily distracted today while nursing a little sunburn on my chest and neck back to health.  Oops.  I had the sunscreen on my face but totally forgot about my neck and chest so now I'm on the pink side and it's kind of itchy.  Bring on the argan oil!!  For today's post, I've got a little haul from Hautelook that took place back in March when Lorac was on the site.  Well, I saw today that Lorac is on Hautelook once again and so are the things that I ordered so I thought today would be an excellent day to share swatches.
Get Hot Warm Eye Shadow Palette:
These all swatches super easily with a nice creamy feeling.  Very pleased with this palette.  I can't wait to get that peachy-coral on my eyes; it has a bit of a golden shimmer to it.  The darkest shade is a matte, the next darkest shade has the most shimmer and the other 2 shades are on the satin-matte side.

Stay Cool Cool Eye Shadow Palette:
The Stay Cool palette swatched just as easily - super creamy feeling.  What's surprising is that the medium brown/taupe shade looks like it might have a little bit of a blue sparkle to it...not much, just a tiny bit.  The darkest shade is matte, while the rest are satin or lightly shimmery.  The teal will make a pretty liner for a pop of color.

I finally took the plunge and got this set of 3D Liquid Lustre Drops.  Unfortunately, this is already sold out on Hautelook's site.  But I believe the Diamond shade is available all the time, with the other 3 being limited edition.
Diamond, Platinum, Amethyst, Topaz
one tiny drop each, spread out with my finger

I can't wait to play with the liquid lustre drops!  And both eye shadow palettes look perfect for creating fairly quick looks.  I would probably feel the need just to pull in one additional color - a matte skin tone to start everything off with.

Do you plan on picking up anything from the LORAC sale on Hautelook?  Do you have a favorite palette from LORAC?  Any other product that you're absolutely in love with from them?

  1. Great post! I saw their items on Haute look and was curious about them. Those palettes look nice! I just received the Pro Palette and did a brief review on my blog I started. Would love if you checked it out!
