LORAC Unzipped Desert Sunset Eyeshadow Palette

Unzipped Desert Sunset

LORAC Unzipped Desert Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes ten shades in hues of warm neutrals to the tune of copper, bronze, and brown with pops of purple, red, and berry. This was the best performing palette of the Sunset series, which was not a surprise given that warmer neutrals tend to be more pigmented/less difficult to do given the plethora of well-rated warm eyeshadow palettes out there!

From my experience with LORAC’s formulas, the one in the Unzipped Sunset series seemed more like a hybrid between their Pro and Unzipped formula, as the Sunset palettes did not seem to have the same denseness (particularly in the shimmers) as the permanent Unzipped palettes. The mattes, however, were more substantial (less thin) compared to the Pro formula, which also meant less powderiness/sheering out during application.

Sandstorm

Sandstorm is a rich, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture felt soft, lightly dusty, but more substantial than the Pro mattes, so it adhered better to bare skin. It blended out easily and lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Meditation

Meditation is a bright, medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage–a dampened brush would help get it closer to full coverage. The consistency was drier and looser in the pan, which caused some excess product to get kicked up in the pan. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Sunrise

Sunset

Sunset is a medium-dark, pinkish berry with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, but the texture was slightly dusty, so it sheered out a bit over bare skin. It was easiest to work with in thinner layers to build up coverage or else it was a touch more challenging to diffuse along the edges. The eyeshadow stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Dunes

Dunes is a light-medium peachy orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and did not sheer out too readily. The texture was smooth, a bit denser and “thicker” than other mattes from LORAC, which helped it adhere better to the lid without need of a primer. It lasted for seven hours on me.
