I am a huge Pat McGrath Fan. So, when Pat comes out with something new, I’ve gotta have it. However, gotta have it, and needing it, is another story. No,, I don’t need it! Especially, when the palette has shades that are similar to Pat’s shades that I already have. Therefore, the new Pat McGrath Golden Opulence Eyeshadow Palette is one of those kind of things. The shades are similar to shades in her other palettes. However, they aren’t an exact match. In other words, the gold shade, in another palette, is a bright yellow. And, the gold in the Golden Opulence Palette is a deeper gold with orange undertones. So, I saw the palette on Pat’s website, and ordered it. Crazy? Yes, I know!
Furthermore, the New Pat McGrath Golden Opulence Eyeshadow Palette looks like it could be another party palette for the Holiday Season. However, the Palette launched on January 2, 2020. And, guess what? The holidays are over. And, it is time to start moving forward.
As a result, I’m a bit confused. But, there is one thing I can say. I was able to create some beautiful looks with the Golden Opulence Shadows. Would you expect anything less from a Pat McGrath Palette?
The Pat McGrath Golden Opulence Eyeshadow Palette Packaging
First, the palette is different from her other palettes. For one thing, it is a glittery, opulent red shade. In addition, it looks rough, but in reality, it is smooth and shiny. Moreover, the palette has enlarged and raised the famous Pat MCGrath hieroglyphics. However, it isn’t an ideal palette .
The reason is the flaps, from the packaging envelope, are constantly collapsing on top of the eyeshadow pans.
In addition, there are 12 g, or 0.42 oz. of product. In other words, there are 2 g per pan.
The Formula For The Pat McGrath Golden Opulence Eyeshadow Palette
To begin with, the formula for the Golden Opulence Palette is on par with Pat’s other Palettes. This includes Pat’s Eye Ecstasy Mini Palette, Subliminal, Sublime, Decadence, Bronze Seduction, and Midnight Sun Palettes.
First, the shadows are creamy. As a result, they blend easily. Also, they adhere to the skin, without creasing. One stroke is all you’ll need, to get fully pigmented opaque color saturation. The shadows are known for their emollient texture and the way they glide. Even more, you can dampen your eyeshadow brush, and apply the shadow for a more foiled metallic look.
The Shades in the Pat MCGrath Golden Opulence Eyeshadow Palette
First, Eternal Opulence, a pale peach shade, has a metallic finish. First, wear this pale peach shade on the inner corners of your eyes. Also, wear it to highlight your brow bones. Also, use your finger, and pack it on the center of your eyelids. It will make your eyes pop!
Next, Tranquility, a neutral peach shade, with a matte finish. I would wear this shade as your one and done! Therefore, wear it all over your eyelids. Also, use Tranquility in your crease. Then, line your lower lash lines with this neutral peach shade. Last, wear it in your outer corners, and in your eye socket.
Then, Lotus Luxe, a rouge shade, has a shimmering finish. You can wear this shade all over your eyelids. Also, use Lotus Luxe to define your lower lash lines, and the outer corners of your eyes.
Moreover, Prosperity, a brown-plum shade, has a matte finish. First, wear this to define your lower lash lines. Also, use it to enhance the outer corners of your eyes.
Then, Moon Phase, a rose shade, has a glittering finish. Wear Moon Phase as your Pop shade, on the centers of your eyelids. In this way, your eyes will pop. Also, you can wear this glittering rose shade on your eyelids. Also, wear it on the inner corners of your eyes.
Finally, Gold Fortune, medium-dark gold shade, with orange undertones, has a metallic finish. One way I love this shadow is all over the eyelids. Also, you can wear Gold Fortune on the inner corners of your eyes. I love that this gold shade has the perfect creamy texture. Even more, it looks foiled, and creates an impact .
