{Review} LORAC Eye Candy Full Face Collection

Hi! I hope you all had a great thanksgiving! 

It's that time of the year when most cosmetic companies come out with their holiday sets. Out of all the sets that are out at Sephora, the LORAC Eye Candy Full Face Collection was the set I was most excited for. The packaging is so adorable... I mean, who wouldn't like a great quality box of chocolates for the holidays?! 

An exclusive holiday collection of six palettes all infused with ultra rich color and velvety smooth textures for creating the perfect face. This season, satisfy your beauty cravings with LORAC’s Eye Candy Full Face Collection. Even better than a box of chocolates, this deluxe assortment of sweet, tempting treats contains a luxurious selection of fresh colors for eyes, cheeks, and lips that you simply can’t resist. Open the lavish gold box to reveal six faux “chocolate bar” palettes. The Eye Shadow Palettes, Cream Eye Liner Palette, and Cheek and Lip Tint Palette are all infused with ultra rich color and velvety smooth texture for a variety of eye-enticing looks.  

This set includes 6 chocolate bars: 4 eyeshadow quads, a cheek/lip quad, and a cream liner quad.

They have chocolate bar-esque names as well: Tantalizing Cocoa, Ohh La La Vanilla, Caramel Love Affair, & Blackberry Truffle Seduction. We'll get started with the eyeshadow palettes first! 

Tantalizing Cocoa is described as a bronze eyeshadow palette. It includes a light cream with shimmer, a medium warm bronze, a brown with shimmer, and a deep brown with shimmer.

Ohh La La Vanilla is described as a nude eyeshadow palette. This is my favorite one from the bunch. It includes a light creamy vanilla with shimmer, a darker creamy vanilla with shimmer, warm matte brown, and a warm dark chocolate brown.

Caramel Love Affair is described as golden eyeshadow palette. It includes a light champagne with shimmer, a copper with shimmer, a bronzy brown with shimmer, and a reddish bronze with shimmer.

Blackberry Truffle Seduction is described as a smokey eyeshadow palette. It includes a white with shimmer, a dark plum with shimmer, a dark grey with shimmer, and a matte black (which isn't that pigmented though).

Onto the rest of the palettes...

Indulge in Berry Kisses is the cheek/lip tint palette. Keep in mind that I used q-tips to swatch these, so they might not be as pigmented as they may look. I haven't used them yet, so I can't really review them.

Mesmerizing Dark Chocolate is the cream eyeliner palette. I was so impressed by not only their swatches, but their lasting power. They took forever to remove!

PROS
- packaging is adorable!
- great quality eyeshadows (creamy, soft, & smooth texture - blendable)
- separate palettes make it easy to travel with
- no fallout

CONS
- majority of the eyeshadows are shimmery
- ohh la la vanilla & tantalizing cocoa palettes are somewhat similar

All in all, I am so happy with my purchase! I bought a total of 4 sets (1 for me, 3 for gifts) during the VIB sale and I plan to buy 2 more for Christmas presents! I highly recommend it.

Thanks for stopping by!
