LORAC Soleil PRO Palette Evaluate & Swaatches

Soleil

LORAC Soleil Pro Palette (2020) ($35.00 for 0.56 oz.) contains 18 eyeshadows with nine matte shades and nine shimmer shades; the palette is divided in half with the mattes on the left and the shimmers on the right. The mattes were lightly powdery at times, so some shades had more medium to semi-opaque coverage that sometimes could be built up but would be best paired with an eyeshadow primer. The shimmers were, largely, very pigmented, emollient, and easy to work with and had better longevity on their own. I did feel like the shimmers had a lot of overlap in color/tone, so it was not the most versatile palette as a result.

Warm Vanilla

Warm Vanilla is a soft, light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly powdery consistency that felt finely-milled and smooth to the touch. It lasted nicely for seven hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

In 2020, the brand reformulated their PRO eyeshadows and released new palettes (and new shades, however new-new they might be). The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” that “last[s] without creasing” and “blend[s] effortlessly.” Each eyeshadow can also be removed from its respective palette–there’s an included tool to do so–to rearrange the palette or depot (nice touch!).

The mattes felt less thin and were not quite as dry as the prior formula–a bit silkier–though the matte eyeshadows are still lightly to moderately powdery with light fallout but are blendable. I think it’s a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.

For the most part, they were easy to use with most shades lasting between seven and eight hours, which is average, so the longevity wasn’t any better/worse than most eyeshadows on the market (including the prior formula).

Pink Beige

Pink Beige is a medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff initially, but it sheered out a bit during application due to the softer, more powdery texture that was also slightly thin. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Opal

Opal is a light, golden beige with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was smooth to the touch with a denser feel, but it wasn’t overly thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Soft Pearl

Soft Pearl is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied fairly evenly to my lid. The texture was moderately dense, slightly thicker compared to other shimmers in the palette, and it was easier to get a smooth application with a fingertip. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Sand Dune

Sand Dune is a light, golden brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was moderately powdery, so it was more prone to sheering out and had light fallout. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage but was best applied over an eyeshadow primer to ensure its longevity and opacity. It lasted nicely for seven hours before fading a bit.

Morocco

Morocco is a light-medium orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that was blendable and so finely-milled that it didn’t seem to yield visible fallout, though I could see powder flyaway a bit during blending.

  • BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #3 (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar).

Formula Overview

In 2020, the brand reformulated their PRO eyeshadows and released new palettes (and new shades, however new-new they might be). The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” that “last[s] without creasing” and “blend[s] effortlessly.” Each eyeshadow can also be removed from its respective palette–there’s an included tool to do so–to rearrange the palette or depot (nice touch!).

The mattes felt less thin and were not quite as dry as the prior formula–a bit silkier–though the matte eyeshadows are still lightly to moderately powdery with light fallout but are blendable. I think it’s a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.

For the most part, they were easy to use with most shades lasting between seven and eight hours, which is average, so the longevity wasn’t any better/worse than most eyeshadows on the market (including the prior formula).

Quartz

Quartz is a medium copper with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to my lid and blended out well along the edges. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and on the creamier side, so it sat well on my lid and didn’t emphasize its natural texture. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

I think it’s a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.

For the most part, they were easy to use with most shades lasting between seven and eight hours, which is average, so the longevity wasn’t any better/worse than most eyeshadows on the market (including the prior formula).

Euphoria

Euphoria is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was a little thicker than other shimmers but not to the point where it caused trouble. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

In 2020, the brand reformulated their PRO eyeshadows and released new palettes (and new shades, however new-new they might be). The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” that “last[s] without creasing” and “blend[s] effortlessly.” Each eyeshadow can also be removed from its respective palette–there’s an included tool to do so–to rearrange the palette or depot (nice touch!).

The mattes felt less thin and were not quite as dry as the prior formula–a bit silkier–though the matte eyeshadows are still lightly to moderately powdery with light fallout but are blendable. I think it’s a formula more suitable to someone who tends to prefer buildable coverage and a little more muted color.

The shimmers were slightly creamier, smooth, and blendable with higher color coverage that had good adherence to bare skin. They seemed a little thicker than the prior formula, which I think gave them better hold.
