Fleur Fantasia

Pat McGrath Fleur Fantasia Celestial Divinity Luxe Eyeshadow Quad ($58.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that featured a pearly peach, pearly lavender, sparkly berry, and matte coral. It is exclusive to the brand’s website.

The two more subdued shimmers felt a little more powdery in comparison to most of the brand’s eyeshadows, which tend to have a creamier, more emollient quality to them, though I didn’t find it had much impact on application. All four shades had rich color payoff, were blendable, and had good longevity, though Iridescent Orchid had light fallout over time.

Huetopia

Huetopia is a medium-dark, yellow-peach base with very fine, subtle pink-to-gold shifting p earl that gave it more of a pearly sheen. The base seemed a little more powdery, which seemed to “eat” some of the shimmer so it wasn’t as metallic as some of the brand’s shimmers can be (but not quite as sheen-like as Skinshow ____ shades).

The texture was lightly powdery in the pan but didn’t give me trouble with fallout or blending when applied to my skin. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.

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.

Lavender Blue

Lavender Blue is a light-medium, pinky-lavender base with warmer undertones paired with cooler, blue-to-aqua shifting pearl. The finish was more pearlescent when applied–almost glowing but not actually metallic or as shiny.

For the brand, it had a lower level sheen than usually seen (that’s an observation, it’s not a pro nor a con). The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable but lightly powdery in the pan. It had opaque color payoff that lasted nicely for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Iridescent Orchid

Iridescent Orchid is a brighter, medium berry with warmer undertones and cooler pink and violet sparkle that gave it a shiny, metallic finish with light sparkle. The consistency was slightly drier with the sparkles coming away from the base color a bit, which led to light fallout during application when applied with a dry brush.

It had opaque pigmentation regardless of being applied with a dry brush, wet brush, or fingertip, though the latter two helped to mitigate fallout. It wore well for nine and a half hours but had a touch of fallout over time.

Lotus Paradise

Lotus Paradise is a muted, medium pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and substantial with a touch of powderiness that was present in the pan but didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application.

The eyeshadow had rich color coverage that blended out with ease. The color stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.

I bought this palette and was so disappointed. I have ivory skin, these colors did not show up well at all. I tried wetting the shadow, used my finger and it just doesn’t show up well. It was nicer as highlighter and blush. From there different reviews I’m seeing, it shows up well on anyone medium to dark tones.

I thought it was just me! I’m pretty fair, as in some of the lightest foundations, and it might be because I have an olive undertone, but these don’t show up well on me either. I usually really love wearing pastels because they’re the right intensity for a softer look on me, but I’m just not getting the payoff that I hoped for. My iridescent orchid doesn’t have a lot of payoff on my eyes or as arm swatches.

This quad arrived yesterday (I had no issues with shipping-so lucky me) I was really excited about it but I don’t know. The matte in my palette is phenomenal but the rest of the palette is not what I was expecting. I agree with your descriptions of the peach and lavender shades. They are definitely more powdery and less shimmery than I expect from Pat McGrath. The pink in my palette is hard to get out of the pan and looks chunky on the lid. Hello texture!
I’m also wondering if I’m having a hard time loving the color scheme because it’s so gloomy and cold where I live and I’m craving deeper and warmer looks? I might feel differently in the spring?
Not sure if I’m going to send back or accept the formula for what it is. 🤷‍♀️

It’s a very expensive quad Beth and I think you would have to love all the shades for the price. If you are not happy with the formula and you are able to, I would send it back. For $58USD you can get quite a few good products.

Alrighty, so here I go trying to talk myself out of getting this quad. I already have UD Tonic and Omen, I have dupes for that peach matte shade, and it runs fairly light overall. However, my CP Truth dried up and they DC’d it, and I have literally NOTHING like that cranberry infused pink metallic! 🤯

For my day to day use, I can tell this one will be more of a face palette, with Lotus Paradise as a gorgeous blush color, and Huetopia as a highlighter (and brow bone/inner corner).

This isn’t my favorite quad of those released. In the swatch post I mentioned that there are shades in each of the quads that I would like. In this particular quad, I love Lavender Blue and Iridescent Orchid. I could pass on the other two quite easily. Depending on the other quads, I might be willing to spring for this for the cranberry shade, alone.

Hmmm – I am not sure I am getting this colour story. I find the peach and matte coral shade to look a little too similar to each other, the lavendar (which looks lovely) doesn’t seem to work with the matte coral shade. I think you would need to bring other shades in to make this one work.
The Irredescent Orchid shade formula seemed more prone to fall out. I don’t this this is one of Pat’s best.

It’s pretty but I’ve heard varying reviews on this palette and no one was wow’ed.I love the colors but I don’t know.. I really have better luck with other brands.

I think Pat really screwed up by not including her special shades in any of these expensive quads. Isn’t that the whole reason we plunk down $60 for them? Because they always have one gorgeous astral or VR shade? Idk, the previous 3 from last year were amazing but these 3 are just whatever. Very disappointed.

I got this and love it as a face palette (one of the reasons I love DVII). My only complaint is the texture, as you’ve mentioned, but the performance is the same as her other shadows IMO.

The looks do mostly look the same but if you’re a fan of lighter makeup it’s great (I have a very fair neutral skin tone). I can easily achieve a watercolor-like effect with this or do strobing, use Huetopia as a shadow or face highlighter, use Lotus Paradise as an all over shadow or blush, use Lavender Blue as a shadow or face highlighter (I LOVE purple highlighters and this is so much fun), and use Iridescent Orchid as an all over shadow or just a little pop of accent color (did not work well at all as a liner but I also don’t have mixing medium so who knows). One of my favorite daytime looks is light pink or peach blush as both my shadow and blush with either black winged liner or dark brown smudgy liner and mascara. This is excellent for that. Side note: I have the Nordstrom Hourglass holiday palette and that’s awesome for this purpose as well.

I’ve seen some YouTube comments saying that a possible reason she released this for Holiday is to accommodate those in the Southern Hemisphere who are currently experiencing spring. I’ve noticed this complaint popping up in a few places, but I think it can make a fun icy inspired kind of holiday look as well as spring.
