With its classic summer colors, LORAC’s GLOgetter eye shadow palette was probably meant for fun-filled beach boardwalks, fair food and cruising down the coast with the windows rolled down…but I feel like a beauty bandit when I think of the price — only $20! — like I should be wearing black from head to toe and a mask like a cat burglar.
I can’t believe this 10-pan limited edition palette is only $20 at Ulta. At that price, it’s almost like stealing!
These easy-to-blend powder shadows are consumate summer colors — the kind that look great with a tan — and when I wear them with primer, they last from 8-10 hours on my dry lids before I notice much creasing. No fallout, either.
I bet you could totally BeyoncÃ© it out with these and bang out some intense looks with loads of blending and layering, but I really like GLOgetter for simple looks with one or two shades.
I’ll start by lining my water and upper lash lines with black or brown liner. Then I’ll smudge the upper line with the edge of a flat eye shadow brush and, using the same brush, pat one of GLOgetter’s shimmery shades on my lids, before running whatever remains on the brush along my lower lash lines.
At this point, if I have a couple extra minutes and a domed shadow brush on hand, I’ll sweep one of the matte shades into my crease for depth.
The shadows aren’t so pigmented that I have to spend forever and a day blending, so I can whip out a pretty quick look in 5 or 10 minutes.
Of course, that can be both a blessing and a curse. If you crave neon bright eye makeup with full-on saturated shades, you might not adore GLOgetter’s moderately pigmented powders, but I think if you’re looking for a palette to create easy, everyday date/work looks this summer, GLOgetter’s a fan-frickin’-tastic option for one hard-earned Andrew Jackson.
