Review: I fell in love with Pat McGrath eyeshadows in 2019 when she released the Mothership V palette. Shortly after, I purchased one of her older releases, Mothership II. I have been on the hunt for the Decadence Palette for a while and I am glad she finally made it home to me. This palette is a collaboration with Star Wars and it is a Limited Edition collector's item. The box packaging came in a high shine gold wrap around sleeve box with black typography. The eyeshadow is housed in a sturdy mirrored gold casing with the words "Star Wars" and "The Rise of Skywalker" in black typography. The beautiful casing is similar to Pat McGrath's large Mothership palettes, except this one is in gold instead of black. It also comes with a nice sized mirror. The palette contains ten shimmer shades (see swatches and shade names below). The formula is different from some of her eyeshadows. This is more of a satin-like formula with extreme pigments. They are buttery and soft to the touch. They are easy to apply and blend on the eyes and are long-wearing. After falling for Natasha Denona eyeshadows, I was hoping I wouldn't fall for Pat McGrath's formula - but here we are. Would I recommend this palette? On a practical stand point, I would say no since it is an all shimmer palette and it is quite expensive. On an eyeshadow lover and a Pat McGrath fan or collector, this is a must-have palette.
