Pat McGrath is launching their NEW Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette on Friday, 9.07! This palette is absolutely a beauty but make sure you brace yourself for when you hear the price tag… a whopping $125! Now Pat McGrath is anything but cheap but this is a big step up from $55 for their 6 shadow palettes, to $125 for 10 shades. The palette features the shades Skinshow Divine Glow, Entrapment, Bronze Blaze, Gilty Pleasure, Disobedient, Xtreme Aubergine, Blitz Flame, VR Fire Opal, Rose Gold 005 & Astral Luna Gold.
Literally, physically, my jaw dropped when I saw that damn price tag. I KNOW makeup is/can be expensive. *cough NATASHA DENONA cough* but ummm, what?! First of all, let me know how you’re gonna charge $55 for a 6 pan palette and then MORE THAN DOUBLE THE PRICE just to add 4 more shades – she didn’t even double the number of shades! The confusion is so real. Like, do people even actually buy these??
I truly have never seen anyone i’m subscribed to on YouTube use any of her palettes. And does the average person buy these? Like, I do NOT think anyone can afford these nor do they even think any eyeshadow palette is worth a car payment. Just sayin…. I feel like it also kinda goes without saying that these shades are kind of a snoozefest. I mean, yes, the color story is veryyyyy fall and we won’t lie, the burgundy red and most of the other shimmers look amazing, as does that deep purpley black brown. But this is nothing new and nothing necessary. And with that price tag, we for sure know we can live without this one. Pass.
