LORAC TANtalEYES Baked Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

LORAC is currently on sale on Hautelook (sale ends Wednesday, May 23rd at 8 AM Pacific). I figured it would be a good time to share swatches of one of the items, the TANtalEYES Baked Eye Shadow Palette. This palette is marked down from $36 to $16. 

The TANtalEYES Baked Eye Shadow Palette has bright, holographic gold packaging. Check out how disco-fabulous it looks in the light!

Inside, it contains four shimmery, baked eye shadows. These shadows are smooth and super pigmented. A single swipe deposits more than enough color.

The colors include a vanilla pearl shimmer, golden copper shimmer, olive green with gold pearl, and a garnet/wine shimmer.

I think this color combination is a bit unusual. The TANtalEYES Baked Eye Shadow Palette was released during the summer, but these strike me as autumn colors.

I haven't had the desire to wear these shadows together for a full-on autumn eye. Instead, I'll wear one along with more neutral shadows. For example, the coppery orange makes for a nice pop of color on the lid for summer, and the golden olive green is a good contouring shade.

Bottom Line: If you are interested in this palette, it is currently available for a nice price of $16. The shadows are very soft with stellar pigmentation. I don't like to wear all four shadows together, but I think that they stand alone nicely and can work well in other looks.

    1. The quality of the shadows is great, too! Super silky and pigmented. The Hautelook sale is over, but the palette's still available for cheap on LORAC's website and Amazon.
