Lorac’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Cheek Palette (Review & Swatches)

Let’s Talk Makeup!

Lorac Cosmetics as a brand is one of my favorites. I am always drawn to their eyeshadow & blush formulas & I don’t think they get enough love on social media sometimes. They are known mainly for their pro palettes, which are awesome & I highly recommend owning at least one. When I saw that the company was collaborating with Disney to create an entire line of cosmetics themed in conjunction with the release of the newest Pirates of the Caribbean film: “Dead Men Tell No Tails,” I immediately got online & started researching the standouts of the collab. By far, my favorite item in the collection is the Pirates of the Caribbean Cheek Palette. The palette consists of (3) highlighters, (1) hybrid highlighter/blush topper, (1) blush & (1) blush/bronzer. I still really want to try the Duel Ended Lipstick & Lipgloss duos from the collection.


Palette Review:

Overall, I am really impressed with the quality of application and pigmentation of this palette. I definitely think it’s worth the $30 price tag. I was especially impressed with the highlighters. They were smooth & didn’t accentuate my pores. I really loved how they reflected in the sun. It’s a fabulous addition to your summer glow. The timing of this release was perfect!

Shades Included:

 Top Row: (L-R)

“Fortune” -Icy White Highlighter with a Buildable Reflect. I also love it as an inner corner (of your eye) highlight.

“Lost Soul” -Soft Beige Matte Blush with Slightly Warm Undertones. (Could be a bronzer on fair skin.)

Middle Row: (L-R)

“Destined” -Light Caramel Highlighter with a Warm Bronze Reflect.

“Caribbean” – Mauve Rose Colored Matte Blush.

Bottom Row: (L-R)

“Star Reader” -Golden Highlighter with a Cool Gold Reflect.

“Bold Spirit” -Soft Pink Highlighter. My personal favorite. Works with so many different colored blushes.
