I am not easily impressed anymore. It’s sad really. Most offerings on the market are the same thing, day in and day out. So, to say I am tempted by the newest Pat McGrath offering is really saying a lot. The Divine Rose palette is simply stunning. Yes, its expensive. Clocking in a $170CAD, this works out to $17 per shadow. Most definitely worth it. Shade number 8 is the most amazing color shift called VR Sextraterrestrial. It is the kind of shade that I want to be dipped in when I die. It is a pinky, green, gold combination that just makes me melt.
As described on the Sephora website:
What it is: A beguiling bouquet of 10 brilliantly blendable, high-impact pigments and futuristic finishes.
What Else You Need to Know: This palette transforms Mothership VII: Divine Rose’s blushing beauties into couture colours ranging from petal-soft pink, peach, rosé and burgundy to gilty golds, brazen bronze and astral champagne. Mesmerising mattes, supernova shimmers, gleaming glitters and an exquisite triochrome inspire an avant garden of legendary looks.
This Palette Contains:
– 10 x 0.47 oz/ 1.32 g Eyeshadows in Skinshow Rose Opal (Shimmer), Naked Blush (Matte), Eleganza (Shimmer), Bronze Rosé 005 (Metallic), Gold Lust 001 (Glitter), Xtreme Burgundy (Matte), Divine Dusk (Shimmer), Rose Seduction (Satin), VR Sextraterrestrial (Metallic), and, Astral Pink Moon (Glitter)
As beautiful as this creation is, it is not without problem ingredients, featuring Talc, Carmine, Mica and Dimethicone this product isn’t going to work for everyone. The pictures don’t do it justice. Is it worth it? Yes and no. You will have a limited number of beautiful and shiny looks to create. But, they will be undoubtedly stunning. If you are able to commit to using the palette to achieve the full value out of the product then I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. If on the other hand, you are like 90% of the buyers out there who will only use this palette for special occasions then you are best to give it a pass. I love the addition of true matte shadows to the palette. It adds versatility and unmatched quality. OK, let’s face it, I get my undies in a bunch over the duo chome. It is without a doubt the main reason to purchase it.
