Review: My first exposure to Pat McGrath Labs eyeshadows was the six-pan Bronze Ambition palette. There was something about the formula that was different from Natasha Denona's (both are good in different ways). Plus, the packaging is extremely intricate and luxurious. This specific palette is housed in a thick and sturdy cardboard casing with a majestic design. Once you open the cardboard, the actual eyeshadow palette is inside in a sturdy, glossy and heavy weight compact with a large mirror. It contains 10 eyeshadow pans which is slightly larger than standard pans.
The eyeshadows have different textures such as mattes, satin, shimmers, duo chromes and metallic that are high in pigment content. They are easy to blend, long-wearing and can be used for both day and night look. Please note that arm swatches do not indicate how they perform on the eyelids. If you love warm-tone shades, you will love this palette. Is it worth the price? Personally, I think so. If you would like to try a Pat McGrath eyeshadow, I recommend getting the six pan palette. Keep in mind that the six pan ones do not have an extensive shade range and textures such as the regular palette but the formula and pigmentation will hopefully help you decide if you think it is worth it or not.
