PAT McGRATH Labs Eye Shadow Palette Star Wars™ Edition Sith Seduction
This time, I would like to discuss the PAT McGRATH Labs Eye Shadow Palette Star Wars™ Edition Sith Seduction. I’ve acquired the Sith Seduction palette, which contains 5 captivating shades inspired by the “hypnotic depths of the dark side,” as described on the official website.
All swatches of the PAT McGRATH Labs Eye Shadow Palette Star Wars™ Edition Sith Seduction were applied in 1-2 coats directly on bare skin, without any eyeshadow primer or base.
Imperial – a peachy beige with warm undertone and a metallic finish. It delivers rich colour payoff, enabled by its smooth yet slightly loosely-pressed texture. This shade is easy to pick up with a dry brush and applies well, adhering even on bare skin without primer. However, there is a minor issue with fallout during application. The colour longevity is impressive, with the shade staying put for up to eight hours before any noticeable fading.
Dark Destiny – a stunning blackened navy blue base with cool undertones and blue, violet, and silver sparkle. It has a texture that is unfortunately quite loosely-pressed. When applied dry, the colour payoff is only semi-opaque, but the coverage improves to near-full opacity when applied with a damp brush or fingertip. Furthermore, the shadow lasts for about 6-7 hours and there’s noticeable fallout over time. From my perspective, to maximize the shade’s longevity and reduce fallout, using a primer is advisable.
Mustafar Heat – a bright copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow features a lightly creamy, moderately dense consistency. It isn’t too emollient or excessively thick, so it interacts well with a dry brush and manages to apply evenly onto bare skin. The colour payoff is fully opaque, and its longevity is admirable, holding up well for about eight hours before gradually starting to fade.
Galactic Conquest – a medium-dark olive green with subtle, warmer undertones and a golden sheen. It has opaque pigmentation, enabled by its smooth yet slightly loosely-pressed texture. However, there is an issue with fallout during application. The colour persistence is notable, with the shade retaining its intensity for a period of up to eight hours before any visible fading begins.
Force Sensitive – a pale champagne bronze colour with a metallic finish. The shade provides opaque colour coverage, adhering well to bare skin due to its smooth and lightly creamy texture, which is not excessively thick. However, there is a minor issue with fallout during application. After 7 to 8 hours of wear, this shade began to show signs of fading.
Overall, the PAT McGRATH Labs Eye Shadow Palette Star Wars™ Edition Sith Seduction is a worthwhile addition to my makeup collection. It has a beautiful colour story and a pretty reliable formula. The eyeshadows are highly pigmented, providing vibrant colour payoff with minimal effort, though fallout is a noticeable drawback.
As for the packaging, it’s a bit of a mixed bag. While it features captivating Star Wars-themed artwork, the cardboard package gives a slightly cheap impression. However, it does align with the palette’s price.
