What is your Makeup Alter Ego? Lorac Heartbreaker Palette- Review

My favorite thing about makeup is the fact that it can help you transform your look. With neutral eyeshadows you can create an everyday daytime look but once you put on a red lipstick, you are immediately transformed into a sexy confident bombshell beauty.

Heart Breaker (17 of 39)That trasformation using makeup is the main idea behind the Summer collection from Lorac. With two gorgeous palettes- Dream Girl and Heartbreaker, you can dress up your eyes and create your “alter ego”. Dream Girl palette is perfect for a soft sunny look with beautiful yellow and orange shades or a dreamy look with garden greens and purples.

Heart Breaker (15 of 39)The Heartbreaker palette features more seductive and flirty shades of pink, purples and sultry shimmery browns. And that’s the palette I was immediately drawn to. This beautiful, Ulta exclusive, palette retails for  $24.00 and consists of 10 vibrant and wearable shades.

Having reviewed other Lorac palettes before- Pro 2 Palette and Unzipped Gold Palette, where both delivered superior quality, rich pigmentation and excellent longevity, I expected nothing less from Heartbreaker. And I was not disappointed. Everything that I look for in my eyeshadows is there yet again. The eyeshadows apply like butter, are really smooth, create no fallout, they blend easily and deliver beautiful pigmentation in just one or two swipes. Heart Breaker (19 of 39)

I absolutely love the vibrant hot pink packaging with rubberized texture and a big mirror inside. And I love the fun selection of colors- you have got matte and pearl highlighting shades, sultry shimmery chocolate browns, a matte transitional brown, a delicate pink, a vibrant purple, gorgeous blues and a sparkly silver. Heart Breaker (1 of 1)Heart Breaker (1 of 2)My personal favorites are the purple shade (third from the left in the palette) and the glittery chocolate brown (the first on the right in the palette). The shadows allow you to create a number of different looks for day and night and even if your goal is not breaking a guy’s heart, he and others around you will definitely be mesmerized by your eyes!

What is your makeup Alter Ego? Are you more of a Dream Girl or Heartbreaker palette kind of girl? What do you think of this palette?

    Ooooh, a pink palette!
    I like the deep bronze shade with beautiful shimma! ;D
    I still want the original Unzipped palette from LORAC, which I think is a nude palette for me not that I need more. 😉

    • Agata says:

      The packaging itself is so cute and even the box it comes in screams summer! I really don’t need any more nude palettes either and since this one is full of vibrant shades- that’s how I justified my purchase. But as far as nude palettes, I am really dying to get the Kat Von D Shade&Light palette…

  2. Pavithra says:

    I’ve never tried Lorac before, mostly because my eyeshadow application skills are subpar. But your swatches are making me swoon – that chocolate brown is gorgeous. Even the warm brown in the first row looks so good! The frosty grey/white colors would make for great highlight shades! I’m definitely going to look for this the next time I walk into an Ulta – is this limited edition?

    • Agata says:

      Hi Pavithra, I believe it is a LE. I think with great quality eyeshadows, like these, you don’t really need expert makeup skills because the eyeshadows apply and blend so easily. Even a simple swipe of one of the colors all over the lid would make for a beautiful look! Do you ever wear any eyeshadows?

      • Pavithra says:

        Now I have to make it to an ULTA soon 🙂 I do wear eyeshadows but no more than two at a time, I do a lot of single washes or I layer a powder shadow over a cream one. I’ve only recently started to use darker shades in the crease when I have time.

        • Agata says:

          The other palette released for the summer- The Dream Girl has softer colors so you might like that one even more!
          What shades do you usually wear? Neutrals?

          • Agata says:

            I love browns too and while I try to wear more colors, especially in spring and summer I will forever be a neutral girl at heart! A brown eyeshadow, a bit of an eyeliner and I have a perfect daytime or nighttime look!

  3. Zovesta says:

    The pink and teal are so pretty! Mmm, these are very nice colours, I can imagine wearing all of them, which isn’t always the case with palettes.

    • Agata says:

      I absolutely agree. There are usually a few shades that I can’t wear at all (like all the blacks in neutral palettes) but these are all wearable for sure!

      Have you worn your new ColourPop goodies yet? How do you like them?

      • Zovesta says:

        Haha I understand, for me it’s pinks and purples. I just can’t seem to wear them without looking like I’ve been punched or I have some sort of terrible eye infection. D=
        Yes, actually, pretty much daily! I’m really surprised by how much Bubbly especially has grown on me. I can’t believe the quality for the price, it was definitely a good buy. Though, I’m wondering, since you own both MAC lipsticks and ColourPop lippies, is the vanilla scent/taste similar? Never worn MAC, but the vanilla from the ColourPop lippies reminds me of what people talk about, haha.

        • Agata says:

          Pinks and purples can be hard to pull off that’s why I usually pair them with a neutral shade or a black eyeliner. Also when I wear purple eyeshadow I apply my concealer after the eyeshadow and that seems to help as well. Anyways, Bubbly is such a pretty color, I might have to get it next time.

          As far as the lipstick, yes- the scent is actually very similar to the Mac vanilla scent and it was my first thought after I put on my ColourPop lipstick (which I have not really worn because it looks terrible on me, lol).

          • Zovesta says:

            Good tips! ^^ I’ll have to try that. Of course, now I’ve realized that I forgot to include the swatches in my ColourPop post. =P I’m an airheaded, fixed. And aah, I wondered… I’m sure Tootsi looks great on you, though. But it all depends on what we personally like, I guess. Variety makes the world go ’round and all.

          • Agata says:

            You can always do a separate post and swatch all the shades you got or create a look and we could see the colors that way 🙂

  4. Kishia says:

    Wow! It swatches beautifully! Neither of these palettes piqued my interest (not yet anyway) but I’m pretty impressed with that turquoise shade. Btw, how are you? I’m finally back from my long vacay & am just starting to settle down. Hope you’re well 🙂

    • Agata says:

      Hi Kishia, I have missed you on here girl! That blue is beautiful- it’s kind of blue or turquoise depending on the light! I am really really happy with the palette overall.

      Did you have fun on your vacation?? I am sure you did! I am doing fine, my knee is getting better and I have been able to work out more. The doc does recommend the surgery though so I am trying to wrap my mind around that and the long recovery…Spring is finally in full bloom here and I cannot get over how beautiful the trees are! And finally we are having hotter weather!

      • Kishia says:

        Yes, my vacation was awesome. Now I’m just resting up from the long drive. That’s good news that your knee is recovering & that you guys are finally starting to have warm weather. I only worked out once during my road trip so I’m looking forward to getting back to the gym regularly. I do hope you can avoid surgery, if possible. But I know you’re going to make the best choice for you. Here’s hoping you continue to improve, friend! Take care!

        • Agata says:

          Who else went with you on vacation? I hope you’re all relaxed and recharged your batteries!

          I’d like to avoid the surgery as well, trust me, but the doctor says the knee dislocation is more likely to happen again without it…Thanks for your well wishes! take care as well. xoxo

  5. Vanessa Bernadette says:

    I have wanted to try one of the Lorac palette’s for a while now & some of the swatches here look amazing. I particularly like the colour on the far right in the first swatch picture – very pretty.

    Best wishes,

  6. Jenny says:

    Omgosh I want this palette! I don’t have any palettes with super vibrant colors for summer. And I do LOVE Lorac. The swatches here are nothing less than what I’d expect from Lorac!

    • Agata says:

      I was really amazed by how beautifully all the colors swatched and they apply beautifully too! This palette is only $24- so maybe you can splurge on one thing since you have been doing so good with your no-buy…?

    • Agata says:

      Yes, they definitely never disappoint! Urban Decay eyeshadows have always been my favorite but Lorac is quickly coming to the top!

  7. Meiko says:

    That blue shadow is very eye-catching! I don’t have any Lorac palettes, but seems there are many great options from them, will keep an eye out.

    • Agata says:

      Yes, this one is really pretty if you like colors. If you’re more of a neutral kind of girl, I would go with one of the Pro Palettes but they are all excellent quality. Let me know if you have any questions about any of them.

  8. neversaydiebeauty says:

    Those are great swatches and beautiful photos, Agata. I just bought the Resort Palette and a few weeks ago the Champagne Palette so I can’t spring for this one. But your swatches have shown me what a versatile palette it is, both warm and cool tones. So pretty!

    • Agata says:

      I wasn’t supposed to buy any more palettes but when I saw this one in the promo pictures, I knew I had to have it 🙂 It is quite versatile, you’re right. Today for example I am wearing all the neutral shades with a touch of silver!

  9. Shireen L. Platt says:

    Honestly this palette would have never caught my attention as I stay away from all palettes with the exception for neutrals but like all the other comments said, the swatches are beautiful! I especially love the teal shade, it’s so pretty that I would buy this palette for that shade alone.

    • Agata says:

      Hi Shireen, well, I am glad it caught your interest and it is a really pretty palette! Do you have any of the Lorac palettes already?

    • Agata says:

      I saw your swatches on IG and Dream Girl looks beautiful too but somehow I was more drawn to this one, probably because of the gorgeous purple and pink shade! Have you used your palette yet?

    • Agata says:

      Hi Madison, I am glad you like the swatches. I will try to create a look for the blog too so you can see how it works in practice! There are so many options with this palette! Let me know if you end up getting it!

  10. Sunny says:

    OOO that teal and that brown are to-die-for! You know I am not into palettes at all, but for these two shades I’d think about this one 😉

    • Agata says:

      Lorac probably is not easily accessible in Belgium, am I right? So you can avoid the temptation but I really like this palette. I know I sound like a broken record with Lorac palettes but they really never disappoint!

  11. NatasjaEPB says:

    Wow! Heartbreaker is looking amazing. I am loving all the shades from this palette.. and I love how bold it is.. just screaming for your attention. Well, it’s certainly getting mine. I’d love to see more of Dream Girl too! but I think I’m a heartbreaker 😛

    • Agata says:

      Ha ha, I am probably a little bit of both in terms of personality. In terms of makeup the Heartbreaker palette just works for me better. But it is super pretty and perfect for the summer!

  12. kristen @ glambunctious says:

    I was so attracted to the packaging and shades in this one, but when I got it, I realized I had dupes for every shade. OOPS! The purple is extra beautiful, though, and who doesn’t love hot pink in the spring and summer? I know you’ll do gorgeous looks with these shadows!

    • Agata says:

      Yes, the shades might not be the most unique and I probably have similar ones but I just love new palettes and I like trying new combinations and it’s always handy to have them all in one place. I am still very happy with this palette and the quality is great. Now I want the Ulta exclusive Heartbreaker lip gloss. Have you seen it? So preety!

    LORAC never lets us down when it comes to palettes! They know their stuff! Have fun playing with the colors and come back and show us your looks soon! 😀
