Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $22, but can be found on sale for as little as $2

THE SKINNY: I’ve been on the hunt for a good, neutral matte eye shadow, so I was really happy to come across Lorac’s Baked Matte Satin shadow during a good sale on a discount site. I chose Posh, a pale tan color, and Social, a rich chocolate brown that is among the prettiest browns I’ve seen in a long time.

The shadow goes on smoothly, blends nicely and looks great when you walk out of the bathroom. But even with a good primer from Urban Decay, the shadow didn’t stay on my lids for more than a few hours.

I reapplied at lunchtime, but by the time I got home, the shadow had once again disappeared. That’s pretty sad for a shadow advertised as long-wearing.

KEEP OR TOSS:
Toss. Eye shadow needs to last more than a few hours to keep me happy.

CHECK IT OUT:
If you want to try this shadow, look for a sale on the Lorac website.
