LORAC Alter Ego Eyeshadow Palette in Dream Girl





By now y’all should know my love for LORAC. Sure, I have come across some things that just haven’t worked for me (hey you can’t win ’em all). But for the most part it’s just a reliable brand for me. So reliable that I was willing to hunt their products down and wouldn’t stop until I got what I wanted. Good times.

The Dream Girl Palette is super pretty and screams Summer! Look at those shadows! So many pretty colors! Even the packaging is pretty. Anyway, there are 10 shadows which you can easily use to create a number of neutral or bold looks. The shadows are soft and blend effortlessly. You can see a look I created with this beauty below.


For my first look I went with a more bold look. Well, bold for me anyway. After applying my primer I applied a white base. Then I applied the 6th shade on my lid, the 2nd shade in my crease, the 4th shade on my lower lash line (I dampened my brush with some MAC Fix+ before application), the 9th shade on the inner corner of my eye, and the 10th shade on my brow bone. The white base really makes the purple stand out more. I use NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as my white base.

Note: I wouldn’t pair that eye look with that shade of lipstick. I was testing out the lipstick and forgot to change it for the photo shoot. Oops?

In case you couldn’t tell, I sure do love me some LORAC! If I was to run off to an island and could only pack ONE palette with me, it would definitely be one of my LORAC palettes. In fact when I went on vacation just last month I took one of my LORAC trios. And on top of that I went crazy looking for that gorgeous GLOgetter Palette. What can I say? I’m a bit of a fan girl.

I grabbed the LORAC Close Up: Real Life To Red Carpet Natural To Dramatic Face Tutorial for the LORACstar trio. I had no idea I was in for such a treat. The Front of the Line PRO Eyeliner has become my go to liner. I like to apply my liner finely and this pen is by far the easiest giving me even precise strokes every single time! I’m also digging the Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara. The Blush and Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick are winners as well! And here I thought I’d end up giving the rest of the set away because all I REALLY wanted was that trio. Turns out I love everything and even found some new favorites!

Below you can see photos of me wearing everything in this set. And I love every bit of it.

The LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette…. or the one that ALMOST got away. There is a long story that goes with this palette. You see, back when it was first launched I happened to be browsing the Ulta website. I had this bad boy in my cart, but couldn’t bring myself to buy it just then. Even though it was only $20.00, I felt that I had done enough damage for the week. So I slept on it. I woke up and was still undecided so I talked it over with my husband who usually always responds the same way. ‘Just get it. I know how you are. When it sells out you’re going to regret it.’ He was right. I went to my cart to find it empty. The LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette was out of stock. I figured it was no big deal. I could always visit my local store and purchase it. That’s when the chase started. The ONLY Ulta store within a 50 mile radius was sold out. I still felt like that wasn’t quite the end of the road. There’s always eBay or Amazon. eBay only had one palette listed and it wasn’t crazily priced. I was outbid by $1.00. Next I took my hunt to Amazon where I did find 3 palettes in stock. For double the price! I waited it out for a week hoping Ulta would restock. After a week of waiting I decided to finally get the overpriced palette on Amazon. Only to find out that all 3 palettes were now sold out. Feeling a little hopeless someone was willing to swap a brand new LORAC GLOgetter Eyeshadow Palette for one of my limited edition/sold out blushes. Both were of equal value so it was a pretty fair trade. Until the swapper said they were going to send me a tester. I’m sorry, but that is NOT a fair trade. I felt grossed out just thinking about everyone’s germy fingers all over it and how all the alcohol in the world couldn’t convince me it was safe. But that’s just me.

At this point I had given up. My family and I went away on vacation and while out shopping I wandered into Ulta. I got super excited when I saw the tester, but the excitement quickly fizzled when I was told they were sold out. I had officially given up. That is until my husband walked into the house one day and handed me this. *points up* I may or may not have cried tears of joy. He’s the sweetest man ever!

I couldn’t wait to dig in which is why you can see my finger prints all up in there. I really do try to photograph the goods before using them, but sometimes my excitement gets the best of me. And I waited far too long to get my hands on this palette. So there you have it. You can see a look I created with it below.
