Pat McGrath Galactic Gold MTHRSHP Eyeshadow Palette is a new, ultra limited edition palette that features six eyeshadows (three repromotes, three new and exclusive to the palette) housed in Star Wars-themed packaging. All six shades had shimmer to them, and while it worked on its own (assuming one doesn’t mind all shimmer!), it would certainly be more versatile when paired with another palette or products you own. The quality was there across all six shades; they were smooth, easy to work with, blendable, and long-wearing with excellent coverage.
Galactic Gold is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer with a soft, lightly creamy consistency that was dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan. The eyeshadow picked up well with a brush and applied evenly while the edges blended out with little effort. It wore nicely for 10 hours on me before creasing faintly.
Pat McGrath Bronze EYEdols Eyeshadow
Bronze is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a subtle, metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in one pass, which adhered well to bare skin for a smooth, even lay down of product that was easy to blend out along the edges. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth to the touch but didn’t have any powderiness in the pan. It lasted well for 10 hours before fading a bit on my skin.
Violet Voidis a deeper purple with cool undertones and flecks of cool, violet blue and warmer plum micro-sparkle over a more frosted finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, dense (but not stiff) texture that applied evenly to bare skin ad blended out well, but it wasn’t quite as yielding as other shades in the palette (and still a very good formula, just didn’t reach the highest of the highs I’ve come across from the brand!). The eyeshadow stayed on well for 10 hours before fading slightly.
Corruption is a deep, reddened plum with warmer undertones and a subtle shift from pinkish-violet to copper to subtle green at the very edge and in the undertone. The texture was dense, slightly firmer in the pan, but I didn’t have any issues picking it up with a brush. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to my lid and blended out well along the edges. There was slight fading after 10 hours of wear.
Electron is a brighter, light purple with strong, warm pink undertones and cooler, pink-to-violet shifting shimmer. At times, the base came through and made it look almost plum-like, and other times, the shimmer dominated and gave it an icier, bluish-violet sheen. The texture was soft, more loosely pressed than the other shades in the palette though not to the point of causing fallout or excess product to kick up in the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for 10 hours before there was slight fading.
Gold Standard is a rich, medium-dark gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. The consistency was dense, creamy without being too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan, so there wasn’t any fall out but it was easy to pick up with a brush. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours on me before I noticed slight fading.
