Risque Rose

Pat McGrath Risque Rose Celestial Divinity Luxe Eyeshadow QuadPat McGrath Risque Rose Celestial Divinity Luxe Eyeshadow Quad ($58.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes a brighter pink, duochrome silvery-lavender, rich red-brown, and metallic rose. The only shade that had issues was Lavendaring as it had a lot of larger sparkle, which resulted in fallout (both during application as well as throughout wear), so it wasn’t as easy to use and would be best used with an adhesive base.

Rose Rebellion

Rose Rebellion is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a subtle satin shimmer to it that gave it a touch of sheen compared to Mink Noir, but it functioned more like a matte than a shimmer shade in practice.

It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy but not too dense or too thick in consistency. The eyeshadow wore well for nine and a half hours before fading a touch.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.04 oz. – $625.00 Per Ounce

Pat McGrath’s eyeshadows are, generally, supposed to be “super-saturated” with “creamy, soft textures” and “extreme blendability and adherence without creasing.” A lot of how well they perform (and to some degree, how they are supposed to be applied and marketed) depends on the type of shades, but by and large, the eyeshadows perform very much as they are described.

The brand released single eyeshadows in March 2019, and the shades have been consistent in quality, look, and feel. They are not removable, unfortunately, so one would have to depot like any other single eyeshadow–I tried using tweezers and lifting on several shades to no avail. The lids are held closed by a weak magnet, so I’m not sure they’re as secure as most single eyeshadow compacts in my stash–I wish it really locked in, but there’s definitely a magnet that pulls the lid down if it’s within 2mm of the base.

The mattes are velvety, blendable, and dense without being thick or too heavy, and they have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation where a little can go a long way with some of the deeper and richer hues. The satin and pearl finishes are smooth, lightly creamy, and firmer but not dense or thick with good pigmentation, blendability, and easy application. The more metallic finishes tend to be softer, creamy, and smooth with a bit more denseness and no powderiness. The sparkly/glittery shades are often designed to be applied wet for richer coverage or intensity, which has largely been my experience. Most of the shades last between eight and nine hours.

Lavendaring

Lavendaring has more of a translucent base that looked like a cooler, lavender-gray applied with a heavy dose of sparkles that shifted from cool violet to cool pink. The consistency was lightly emollient, dense but not overly firm, so it wasn’t prone to fallout and had good adhesion to bare skin, though one might prefer to apply with an adhesive spray to ensure longevity and minimize fallout.

It had nearly opaque coverage applied dry as well as wet, though I found that wet application seemed to diffuse the sparkle a bit, which resulted in sheerer coverage overall. There was light fallout during application, and while the majority hung around for a good nine hours, there was some fallout over time. I imagine that those who don’t mind fallout or will take preventative measures to overcome it will enjoy this shade as it had a strong shift and sparkling effect.

Mink Noir

Mink Noir is a rich, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out readily without losing its intensity or having issues with fallout. The texture felt velvety and smooth to the touch, dense but blendable, which made it easier to work with. This shade lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Life on Mars

Life on Mars is a medium, rosy copper with warmer undertones and an intense, shiny finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy but not as dense as most of the brand’s shimmers, which made it ever-so-slightly easier to blend out (not that the regular shimmers are difficult at all). The eyeshadow yielded opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which stayed on nicely for nine and a half hours before fading visibly.
