Posts in Private Affair Palette

Lorac are one of those amazing cosmetic brands that most Australians would never know about. That is a down right shame because I have never EVER tried something by this brand and not loved it. The first thing I ever bought by them was this Private Affair Palette last year, and it made it into my highly competitive Top 5 Palettes of 2010. Funny thing is, I realised I had not actually mentioned it since and it really does deserve to have a spotlight shone on it. Not to worry, I will do that today!

Everything about it looks sophisticated and up market. When you flip open the lid which is discretely secured by internal magnets, you find a panoramic mirror and 6 beautiful powder shadows securely encased in satin. The best part is the hidden satin lined draw, which sits under the shadows and pulls out with a gorgeous gun metal handle on the right side. Inside you find a Lorac Behind The Scenes eye shadow primer and a double ended shadow brush.
