Pat McGrath Astral Rose Orchid is a slightly warm-toned, light-medium duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $25.00 and contains 0.04 oz.
Astral Rose Orchid is a brighter, warmer pink with a sparkling, pink-to-gold shifting duochrome finish. I found that it looked like a light-medium pink less than half of the time; most of the time, it was lighter, brighter, and more of peachy-gold with flecks of pink.
The texture was fairly smooth, but I could feel (by touch) how much sparkle was packed into the formula, but I was impressed by how well the sparkles and powder came together as it had minimal fallout during application--even with a dry brush--and how there didn't seem to be additional fallout during blending, though there was some dispersion (more so than intended).
It had good pigmentation applied dry as well as with a dampened brush; I didn't find that the dampened brush improved the underlying base color come through much but it helped with laying down a smoother, shinier layer of product overall. On me, the eyeshadow stayed on well for over 10 hours with very minimal fallout over time.

The creamy, soft shadows ignite metallic, pearlized pigments and amplify color. Experience an emollient-like texture and sensorial feel that glides on with one-stroke, fully-pigmented, opaque color saturation and a polished, bright, multidimensional finish.
