Sith Seduction

Pat McGrath Sith Seduction 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette that included all shimmery shades. All four shades were very long-wearing, while four were absolutely lovely to work with: pigmented, creamy but easy to apply, and sat well on the lid. One shade was a bit too slippery, which led to some patchiness if I didn’t change up the tools/application method.

Imperial

Imperial is a medium-dark peach with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish.

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

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.

The far right and far left shadows look just like they could have come from the only Pat McGrath palette I own! Still, were it not for that orange/red shade, I might consider getting this (I love Galactic Conquest as well as the other shades except that orange one) based on how great you find the shadows to be.

This did MUCH better than I was expecting based on what I was seeing on YouTube! Almost everyone had a difficult time with the deep blue shade, but a few didn’t. So, my best guess is that some of that shade were too softly pressed, leading to lots of patchiness and fallout, whereas others had no problem with this shade whatsoever. Now we all know that this is a color story I ADORE, so yeah, I’ll probably get it!
