Pat McGrath Subversive is a limited edition eye palette that retails for $28.00 and contains 0.18 oz.
Pat McGrath Subversive Eye Ecstasy Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($28.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a rich, more jewel-toned combination of shades. Two of the shades (Crimson Fire and Synthetica) in the palette are available as single eyeshadows, while the other three are from the Decadence palette (the one I rave about incessantly). I'm pleased to report that the eyeshadows are fantastic: pigmented, creamy, blendable, long-wearing, and all-around a dream to work with; they were fairly consistent with the original releases--I'd argue that Synthetica was a bit smoother (but slightly less sparkly).
The packaging is functional; it's by no means luxe or weighty like the Mothership Palettes, but it seems like it would hold up for travel to me. The cover will give a little if you pushed firmly on the center, but it has a good click to stay shut. If you're someone who would rather more of the cost go toward the actual product than the packaging, this is that--it contains $113.64 worth of eyeshadow! I would have liked to have seen something more in line with Natasha Denona's mini palettes re: packaging -- it doesn't feel like a departure from the brand, though, and it's more space-efficient!
