Pat McGrath Eye Ecstasy Eyeshadow Palette in Sublime

Hello folks!! I did some wallet damage this black Friday with a couple of makeup purchases 😀 Pat McGrath was having a really good sale and so I decided to pick up this mini eyeshadow palette she released for those of us who basically don’t want to shell out 125$ on an eyeshadow palette. The Eye Ecstasy palette had 2 color options : a neutral one and a more colorful one. I decided to pick up Sublime since the neutral color story is more everyday usable for me.

The palette comes housed in a bag full of sequins which isn’t really my cup of tea. I find it annoying and wasteful and wish she would do away with that style of packaging for her products. The actual palette is housed in a plastic component that reminds me of Japanese school supplies for some reason 😀 I don’t mind the aesthetic too much since it is different and sturdy enough for travel, however as a luxury brand I expect slightly better packaging. The actual shadows look beautiful and you get five shadows each weighing 1gm.

The shades are nothing new and are all shimmers. If you are an eyeshadow junkie you probably have all these shades in your collection. I got this palette more to test out her eyeshadow formula before biting the bullet and investing in her bigger palettes.

Unfortunately, I am not very impressed. 😦 The gold shade fades on me as the day goes by. The light gold, the warm gold and the reddish bronze shade crease too….this is something that never happens to me! Shadows almost never crease on my dry eye lids and cheaper shadows in my collection perform way better. I always use a primer and with a primer these shades were very disappointing..maybe I had very high expectations..after all this is a luxe brand!

Now I am curious to try her lipsticks, which have good reviews and perhaps try out her ‘special’ formula of shadows which look like duo or multi chromes…on sale 😀

On another note, I do have a YouTube channel now 😀 Check out my video review and live brush swatches of this palette on my channel !

Have you tried this palette? What are your thoughts?

Until next time, ciao!!!

    I saw those at Sephora but passed. I’ve heard lots of mixed reviews about her eyeshadows. I do love her lipgloss formula though.

      Glad to hear that I am not the only one who isn’t going crazy for her eye shadow formula! I’ll check out her gloss next time 🙂
