Pat McGrath Galactic Sun Divine Blush + Glow Palette

Galactic Sun

Pat McGrath Galactic Sun Divine Blush & Glow Trio includes two blushes and one highlighter; all three shades are available individually, if preferred. The colors were fairly consistent compared to the standalone versions, though Desert Orchid looked lighter and a little warmer when initially swatched, but once on, they seemed to end up the same.

Divine Rose

Divine Rose is a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was soft to the touch, finely-milled, and blendable with a smidgen of powderiness in the pan but it sat well on bare skin. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff, which was closer to as marketed. This shade showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Desert Orchid

Desert Orchid is a medium-dark peach with warmer undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a soft, silky-smooth texture that was blendable and easy to work with. The color seemed to be less intense initially–lighter and warmer–than the standalone I had, but one applied and blended out, they seemed indistinguishable. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Golden Nectar

Golden Nectar is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which easily built up to full coverage if desired. The texture felt silky to the touch to the point where it was almost cream-like with its glide (without being powdery or thick). It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
