The Lorac Afterglo Eye Shadow Palette contains ten colors with a variety of finishes. I bought mine on sale, and it is still on sale on Lorac's website, so if you want one, I'd buy it as soon as possible!
The Afterglo Palette comes in a bright blue compact with gold accents. Although the palette is plastic, it feels very durable and well made. It has a mirror on the lid and eight of the shadows are side-by-side and the two highlight shadows are stretched out on the bottom. None of the shadows in the palette have names, but the palette includes a matte white, shimmery pinky nude, matte dark teal, medium shimmery teal, shimmery yellow gold, shimmery orange copper, matte medium purple, matte light brown, matte coral with subtle glitter & a matte dark brown. All of the shadows have a very smooth texture, but they aren't quite as buttery as the shadows in the Pro Palettes. Most of them have very good pigmentation, and I will talk about each shadow individually. As a palette overall, I really like the color combination, you could get a fun colorful look, or an everyday neutral look with only this palette. It's also fairly compact, so it would work great for travelling.
The white shadow has a smooth texture, but it needs to be built up a little because it is on the sheer side. However, if you are looking for a white that isn't so stark and bright, this one works great. The shimmery nude pink also has a smooth texture and it has great pigmentation, the shimmery finish makes the shadow glide on to the lids. The dark teal is extremely pigmented, but unfortunately it applies a bit uneven, so it does need to be layered a bit to make the color look its best. The lighter teal has nice pigmentation and applies smoother and more even than the dark teal, since it has a shimmery finish. The yellow gold shadow feels drier than the other shades because it has a bit of glitter in it, but it is still very pigmented and applies smoothly. The orange copper has a gorgeous formula that glides on and gives off a metallic look. The purple was a bit of a let down for me, the shadow feels really smooth and it comes off on my finger very well, but it swatches really sheer (even when layered 3 times in the pictures). The light brown has a quite creamy texture and applies really well. I am really happy that this palette contains a great quality transition shade like this one. I don't think this shade is 100% matte though, it almost has the slightest bit of sheen. The coral has a buttery formula and applies very easily, the shade has some fine glitter in the pan, but I don't really notice it on the eyes. Last is the dark brown, which is just as good as the light brown. The formula is great, and like the lighter shade, it appears to have a tiny bit of sheen, but it looks pretty matte.
