Pat McGrath Deep Velvet Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, blendable texture, though it was a smidgen powdery in the pan but proved to apply well without fallout (and still diffused easily). It had nearly opaque color payoff that stayed on well for nine and a half hours on me. It was consistent with the version found in the Subliminal Platinum Bronze palette.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
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.
