Pat McGrath, keeps them coming! Last Fall (2017), Pat introduced her long awaited permanent makeup collection. The newly released products were her new lush matte trance lipsticks and three new Mothership eye shadow palettes: Mothership 1 Subliminal, Mothership 11 Sublime, and Mothership 111 Subversive. As a result, the Pat McGrath brand has taken the world by storm! Last week, Pat has launched 11 new Matte Trance Lipstick shades, along with a new eye shadow palette, Pat McGrath Mothership IV Decadence, which sells for $125. (if you are interested in this palette click here) Pat’s inspiration for Decadence was the opulence of precious jewels.
Often referred to as the “Mother of Beauty”, Pat McGrath has owned up to this compliment , with regard to her new, permanent, makeup products. For starters, I believe that her products are the most luxurious products on the market today. First, her packaging is incredible. Next, her formulas far surpass all of the other high-end brands. And, her colors are out of this world. Furthermore, compared to other high-end brands, her prices are higher. However,I might be her biggest fan, but her products really are exceptional!
Pat McGrath Mothership IV Decadence Eye Shadow Palette Packaging
There is a luxurious feel to all of the Pat McGrath Palettes. To begin with, luxury starts with the actual compact.
The black lacquered compact is sleek and elegant. On the center of the cover are four gold rectangles and squares that look like hieroglyphics. In fact, each symbol has its own meaning. For example, the PM means Pat McGrath, L is for Labs and the crown stands for England. Last, the picture of an eye is for the product, eye shadow.
Inside, the palette has a gorgeous, full,palette-sized beveled mirror. Most important, ten jewel-toned eye shadows come in the palette.
The palette comes wrapped in a box designed with a jeweled opulent crown.
Pat McGrath Mothership IV Decadence Eye Shadow Formula
The formula is an infusion of cream and powder which creates the soft, emollient-like textures of the eye shadows.
As a result, the shadows glide on with one stroke of the brush.
In addition, the richly pigmented formula creates pure color shadows that have a velvety, matte intensity.

The Mothership IV Decadence colors are stunning. The colors blend together like magic. Moreover, metallic pearlized pigments ignite and amplify the colors. Hence, the full. pigmented opaque color application – the color goes on with one stroke of the brush. Mothership IV Decadence is as amazing as Motherships 1, 11, and 111. Again, aside from the fact that I am Pat McGrath’s biggest fan, the Mothership Eye Shadow Palettes really are special.
Finally, I am thrilled that Pat McGrath has created products for all of us. Once upon a time, Pat created products for just for her models, runway shows, and movie stars. Eventually, she created limited edition product that she would put on her website. Unfortunately the products were difficult to get. It was difficult just to get on her website. The reason for this, the website crashed each time she had a limited run on a product! Now, Lucky for us, we can find Pat McGrath Labs products at Sephora, as well as on her website, PatMcGrathLabs.com.
