I am here to rave about this eye shadow palette. If you’ve spoken to me about makeup recently, you will know that I am totally over the moon for this eye shadow palette. I even left work to go get it during my lunch break, ran through the mall, and somehow got back in an hour.
I have had my eyes on this sucker for months, it was a highly anticipated release for me from Pat McGrath Labs. Yes, it is a hefty price tag for this palette ($125). Pat McGrath is not cheap, but she creates quality products unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I did have a gift card to cover the bulk of this purchase, but if I am being 100% honest, I would pay for this palette whether I had a gift card or not.
It is composed of 10 shades. There are 3 mattes, and various shimmer/glitter/metallic shades.
These mattes are too dark to be transitional shades for me personally. For a darker skin tone, they would be perfect. I usually have to use a lighter shade of my own, prior to using the mattes in this palette. Regardless, they are buildable and creamy. Great to use after your transitional shade, if you have a lighter skin tone. The other shades... all I can say is O.M.G. They are fantastic. I am a glitter fanatic. I would describe these shades as ethereal, mature glitters. They are unreal. The shifts of color are incredible. Little to no fall out. I simply use my finger to apply these shades. No glitter glue needed. The payoff is amazing, and HELLO inner corner highlight!
Pat’s description: “Succumb to the splendour of ten extravagantly extraterrestrial shades, saturated with pure colour and diamond sparkle intensity – ranging from ravishingly radiant rose gold, incendiary crimson and molten metallic bronzes to mesmerising mattes – presented in a luxurious couture palette.”
The shades, as Sephora (and myself) describe them:
Skinshow Divine Glow - golden champagne (your classic highlight shade, great for under the brow)
Gilty Pleasure - silky bronzed taupe (glittery, medium taupe)
Entrapment - tawny terracotta matte (the lighter of the mattes)
Rose Gold 005 - gleaming rose gold - (glittery, my favorite shade)
VR Fire Opal - color shifting chartreuse (glittery, gold shade, w/ green/teal shift)
Astral Luna Gold - glistening white gold (glittery, white shade, w/ yellow shift)
Blitz Flame - molten metallic crimson (metallic, gorgeous red for the fall)
Bronze Blaze - glittering golden bronze (glittery)
Disobedient - classic matte mahogany (the darker brown of the mattes)
Xtreme Aubergine -blackened matte violet (deep purple)
On a final note, go pick up this palette. I promise that you won’t regret it. It’s a great fall palette and will carry you all year round adding glitz to any look!
