It’s hard to pass up a collection featuring one of my fandoms. I love the ride in Disneyland and of course the movies, the third one is my favorite. And even more, I think the Lorac Pro eyeshadow formula is top notch. So when the eyeshadow palette went on sale at Ulta, I had to jump at the chance before it sold out!
This collection includes:
Pirates of the Caribbean PRO Eyeshadow Palette $52
Pirates of the Caribbean Cheek Palette $30
Pirates of the Caribbean Mod Lip Cream Duo $26
I did not purchase the lip colors, so I will not be reviewing or swatching them.
I cannot talk about Dead Men Tell No Tales without spoilers, so I am going to avoid writing about it at all. But I can say that the eyeshadow palette is made to look like Jack’s compass, and the cheek palette is made to look like Carina’s diary. And anyone else notice that the back story of Jack’s compass had changed? Uh, that’s not a spoiler.
When I first saw the palette, the colors didn’t attract me and I think it was the layout. I knew I wanted it because it was Pirates, but I didn’t think I would use it much. I think it’s because I am biased against blue and green eyeshadows which I never wear. Doesn’t matter that there is only one of each, I think I mentally want to pass on it if I see either of those colors in any palette. Then I saw swatches on Allura Beauty’s You Tube channel. That changed my mind! The neutrals were mostly cool toned, which I can appreciate. (There are too many orange/rusty palettes!) I already like the pigmentation and smooth formula from the Lorac Pro eyeshadows I already own, and HELLO PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, so why not?
I decided to not swatch them in palette order, but by value. How I would organize them if I designed the palette. These are swatched over an eye shadow primer.
The cheek palette contained colors I don’t already own. It even works for my fair skin tone (NC15), though it may be best for skin tones slightly darker than mine. But I definitely get the “I just spent the day at the beach” almost sunburned/tan look. The highlight colors work for me as well. They’re not super frosty (like ABH) but they give me the glow!
Tomorrow, I will post the Beauty and the Beast collection!
