Here is my experience with the Lorac Pro To Go Palette.
I got this palette because I saw Ingrid Nilsen talk about it on her YT channel and she was talking about how much she loved and I fell in love with the blush shades.
I love how little and compact this palette is! It really is an on the go palette! I love that it has nude shadows and 2 blush shades! It also comes with 2 shadow brushes!
I forgot to put them in the palette when taking the photos. They go in the 2 elastic loops in the palette. I love them. One is a angled brush and one is a fluffy brush.
I really love small handles! They are easier to handle and are better balanced. They are really soft and apply product well. The fluffy brush has a good medium pack so it is fluffy but still a little stiff.
So let's start with the shadows. I really love these shadows. Let's talk about the matte ones first as matte shadow is my favorite.
They are so velvety and soft! They are very smooth and blendable. They are really pigmented but didn't stain. Shell is a little less pigmented than the other 2. Same goes for Pearl.
The shadows are almost creamy in texture rather than powdery which I love! They feel super smooth and the texture makes it feel like they would stay put.

There was a little fall out from the shimmer shades in the brown one called Cafe. But it didn't look like there was any in the pan so I may have picked it up when I swatched it.
So let's talk about the shimmer shades. I'm not the biggest fan of shimmer but after swatching these I might be converted. I posted the swatch of these earlier today on my Instagram. I fell in love right away.

I have never really liked shimmer as I said, but I can not express how much I love these shadows now.
I never used them until today. As I said I don't really do shimmer but my god! These shadows! These shadows are amazing!
These shadows were surprisingly soft. Since they are shimmer they aren't as velvety as the matte ones. The shimmer makes them slightly grittier but they were still super soft!
The are really pigmented too as you can see above and they are surprisingly blendable. They don't feel rough on the skin and they aren't overly shiny.
I love Chai! I think I'm going to do a look with it and the matte shades in this palette! Let me know in the comments if you guys would want to see it here. It would go on my Instagram for sure!
I didn't see much, if any, fallout from these shadows as they have almost a cream texture. And when I washed the swatch off my arm all the shimmer went with it. No run away glitter!
Moving on to the cheek side of this palette. There are 2 blushers and a bronzer in this palette. I adore this bronzer! For a long time it is the only bronzer I used. I need to get back to using it!
The main reason Ingrid said she loved this palette is the Coral blush. I love the shade it. It is shimmer so I wasn't the biggest fan but I really want to step out of my no-shimmer comfort zone this year so I'm going to try it more often!
However the colors are all gorgeous no matter the finish! Pink and Bronze are matte and as I said Coral is shimmer.

The cheek powders themselves are smooth and blendable. I built up the product for the swatch, they are lighter on first swipe. They have a nice pigment and build very well.
I love that the bronzer is brown undertoned instead of orange. Pink is a great winter & spring shade and Coral is great summer and fall shade.
Was it worth the hype? I got this palette when it was selling out everywhere and everyone was talking about it. I think it is well worth the hype. 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushers and a bronzer all in one palette is well worth it to me.
Was it worth the price? 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushers and a bronzer for $38 is a great price! The powders are all of a great quality and the pans are a nice size.
I love this palette! It is small and lightweight, has a great sized mirror and the powders are great! I love the colors and I even like the shimmer shades! They have little to no fallout! This is a great palette and a great price!
