LORAC is well known for their awesome and luxe palettes (Multi-Platinum is my personal fave), and they've introduced a brand-new one for Fall 2010; Private Affair. This palette consists of 6 large shadows ranging from seashell pink to amethyst-studded black and includes a small bottle of their new eyeshadow primer and a mini brush.
The shadows are typical LORAC; smooth and buttery and crazy pigmented. The only issue I ever have with their shadows is that they tend to not be very densely packed and kick up a lot of dust while you load up your brush, but this has never stopped me from using them. I'll review each shade individually after the jump.
The new primer, Behind the Scenes, is wonderful. Besides the fact that it's in a squeeze tube (makeup goddesses be praised), it's a light and creamy formula that applies easily and seamlessly while allowing for the best blending over a primer that I've ever seen. The staying-power of shadows is great over this primer, I'm psyched to say.
The palette itself is a little bulky, though gorgeous. The burgundy faux-croc (or at least I think it's croc) covering is very luxe, and the black satin and chrome-like badges on the palette are beautiful. There is a drawer on the side of the box that slides out to reveal the primer and the brush, and it's very thick which makes it a bit cumbersome, but you can also put a couple extra potted eyeshadows or something in there for traveling to make it seem a little less useless.
