Since Pat McGrath launched her makeup line on Sephora, have you tried any of her makeup yet? For example I couldn’t wait to try “Mother’s” eyeshadow palettes? And, her Mothership Palettes are magnificent. First of all, the packaging is pure luxe! In fact, it is almost too precious to take with you on your vacation. The reason is, I’m always afraid that the case fell on the floor, the gorgeous beveled mirror would break. Also, I worried that the eyeshadows would crack and fall apart. Hey, for $125 a Mothership Palette, someone might see it, and take it. One more thing is, Pat’s makeup is very expensive. For this reason alone, many people can’t afford to spend a small fortune to bu eyeshadows. Although, these eyeshadows are the cream de la cream. Therefore, Pat McGrath Eye Ecstasy Mini Palette in Sublime and Subversive has arrived at Sephora.
And, each of the Eye Ecstasy Mini Palettes cost $28. In addition, you’ll get a little bit of the Pat McGrath “Experience”. Even more, you get to try Pat’s metallic shimmery formula. Moreover, you get five gorgeous PM shades in each of the palettes. Above all, these shades were
Pat McGrath Eye Ecstasy Mini Palette Packaging
To begin with, each palette comes packaged in a bag. Furthermore, the bag has gold foil on the back and is see-thru on the front. In this way, you can see through to the palette. But, that’s not all you’ll see. PM is famous for putting sequins in the bag. Lots and lots of sequins! Moreover, this is how Pat McGrath Products come packaged! So, you are living half the experience, for a lot less than half the money!
Although, the luxury packaging ends there. The Eye Ecstasy Minis come in is a sturdy, frosted, lightweight, plastic case. Besides the gorgeous eyeshadow pans that adorn the inside of each palette, Pat did put her special gold “hieroglyphics” on the front of the palette. However, this is where Pat was able to save money so that everyone could try her eyeshadows! More, the eyeshadow formulas are the same. And, isn’t that the reason you’d buy the palette? To try Pat McGrath’s brand? So, the palette’s case is without the expensive bells and whistles. But, think of the price. You get 5 shadows that are the same size as Pat’s Eyedols individual shades that cost $25 for one. You are getting 5 Eyedols for three dollars more than the cost of One!!!
Pat McGrath Eye Ecstasy Mini Palette Formula
The eyeshadow finishes in the Sublime and Subversive Palettes are Pat’s shimmer metallic formula. Two ingredients stand out in this formula. First, Rice Bran Extract has antioxidant properties, and it is soothing to your skin. Second, Honey Extract also has antioxidant properties, soothes your skin, and helps you have a radiant look.
The colors blend easily. Therefore, you can use either an eyeshadow brush, or your fingers. Furthermore, if you want to create a multidimensional look, you can layer the shades.Also, the shadows feel creamy. And, the beautiful colors last all day. Best of all, the metallics have minimal to no fallout!
