[purchase/affiliate] I just could not let at £22 Pat McGrath eye palette pass me by – a fellow blogger (Sharon at Backtoyoubeauty) tagged me in her post about the same palette, I shot over to the site and purchased straight away. It seems to be that this (and one other) limited edition palette is a kind of Pat Basics range – it’s very simply packaged in a lightweight but sturdy plastic palette with no exterior box.
This feels like such a great idea to dispense with the frills and just get right down to the goodies as well as making it more affordable. As you can see, it arrived in a sequin package (could well do without all that plastic tbh) so there was still some glamour on opening.
A small leaflet with ingredients and so on comes in the main packaging.
So, the goods! I couldn’t be more happy with this set of five molten shades. Consistently, Pat McGrath’s formulas are such that they look almost liquid on the skin. In swatching, only one swipe of colour is needed to lay down a rich layer. They’re just delicious and live up to every word of the hype.
You can see that the fourth colour along (Corruption) looks different in each picture – it’s a shade shifter and does its job really well. I’d be happy to have make up of this quality in more basic form for ever – I love beautiful packaging but if being without it makes the actual product more affordable (and for £22 including postage this feels like an absolute bargain) and accessible then it’s a no-brainer.
I’ve barely worn eye make up at all during lock down and this is the first thing to get my make up juices flowing again – I’m so pleased with it if only to gaze at for now. Find it HERE, non affiliate HERE, and I’d suggest you be quick about it – I can’t see them being there for long.

I was going to pass on this, but the swatches are awesome!
Did you get hit with any customs fees with it coming from the US?
Thanks, that was an good tip! Got to try the hype.
Ignore my first comment, I see that there are no additional customs when ordering from them.
I’ve given in, like you say £22 for a palette this good is a bargain!
I think you’ll be pleased – especially as no customs and no postage.
Thanks Jane, one of each colourway purchased. They’re also on the Selfridges website at £30 each. Can’t wait for these to arrive, super reasonable price.
For £30? When they’re £22 at PMG? That makes no sense.
Seems a bit much, even allowing for high end retailer mark up.
Thanks Jane, have ordered the eye palette and a lip trio as well. So excited to try this brand!
I hope you like it 🙂
there is also a 10% code OBSESS10 for further discount!
Oh thank you!
I have this palette (£13 in the Pat McGrath site sale just finished) – it’s totally awesome! I’m not even much of an eyeshadow / palette person but the colours are so swoonsome – they just raise a smile.
Yes SHaron got hers for £13 which makes it just an incredible bargain – worth looking out for other offers.
Yes, I bought both palettes for £13 each free shipping to the UK when Pat had the 40% sale on her site. It is a good idea to sign up for notifications on her site as you get first dibs on sales and new releases too. The 6 palette platnuim was half price for ages so £25/
The price you pay including customs etc is the price shown
Wow – I wish I’d seen it – definitely signing up!
I just received these on your recommendation, I have never been so impressed a palette of eyeshadow in my life, & I’ve bought a lot in my 55 years! I’ve been put off buying Pat McGrath in the past due to the cost, but I can honestly say I would buy more now, amazing quality. Thanks again for a great blog xx
I’m so pleased you are happy! I think they’re exceptional quality x
Wow this shades are stunning!
I’ve had mine for just over a week and I am blown away with it! I find it’s best to apply with my finger, then blend the edges with a brush to reduce the fallout, but the finish is stunning!
It’s so nice to be excited about makeup again! I’m considering the other colourway…
These were disappointing.
Instead of an indispensable brow highlighter champagne shade, there is a strange greenish offering.
The reddish tone is more brown than burgundy…quite awful actually.
Not worth the money
