How’s your day going? I’m stuck inside thanks to the blizzard we are having in the North East right now. All of our snow finally melted and today we are getting about 12-16 more inches, just in time for Spring. *cue eye roll* So, I guess you could say this post is aptly timed because the new LORAC California Dreaming Cheek Palette sure has me yearning for summer… I have been on a real blush kick lately. I just can’t get enough, and I want to buy every new one I see! Since I don’t have the budget for that, I try to pick up palettes where I am able to get the most bang for my buck.
This 4 pan cheek palette is part of the new LORAC Spring 2017 collection. It is a very thin (1/2 in), sleek palette that measures 8 x 2.5 in which is a good size for travel. It also has a mirror inside and a strong magnetic closure. You can’t see the mirror in my pictures because I put the case over it like a dummy. (But trust me, it’s there!)
When swatching, the colors felt so buttery smooth and pigmented. However, when I applied them with a brush they weren’t necessarily powdery, but a lot of product came up. So just be sure to use a light hand and tap or blow on the brush before applying. All of the shades are on the warm side, and that’s why I think it will be so perfect for summer!
LORAC California Dreaming Cheek Palette
- SUNLIGHT is a light champagne gold shimmer highlighter.
- WAVELENGTH is a peachy/pink blush with very fine shimmer.
- RAY is a warm matte rose blush.
- GOLDEN HOUR is a shimmering copper bronzer. I’m not big on bronzer with shimmer, but I’ll probably try to use this as blush in the summer when I get more color.
Here I am wearing Wavelength with a bit of Sunshine on my cheekbones. Overall, I love this palette so much. I usually tend to gravitate towards cooler toned blushes, but I really like the warm tones in this one. I really have been using it non stop since I got it over a week ago! I have yet to use the bronzer shade, but I’ll probably talk about it on IG once I do.
What do you think of this palette? Do you like that it comes with highlighter, blush, and bronzer?
