Iconic Infatuation

Pat McGrath Iconic Infatuation MTHRSHP Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition pink-tinted neutral color story that included three matte eyeshadows and three shimmer eyeshadows. Two of the shimmers had more sparkle than typical for the brand’s more metallic eyeshadows, so they seemed a touch more loosely-pressed to accommodate the larger particle sparkle. The eyeshadows were blendable, easy to work with, and pigmented–definitely consistent with the brand’s quality.

Worth noting, just by touch, initially, there felt like there was a slight firmness to the mattes that gave away immediately, so not at all a real issue, but it was not something I’ve normally experienced with the brand’s eyeshadows in the past.

Candlelight Affair

Candlelight Affair is a light peach with warmer, slightly orange-leaning undertones paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. It was one of the more sparkling “regular” shimmer eyeshadows I’ve seen from the brand (usually reserved for the special, or domed, shades).

  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Creamy, smooth, slightly loosely-pressed
  • Easy to pick up with dry brush, applied evenly, blendable
  • Long-wearing (9 hours), slight fallout over time

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.
