[sample/affiliate] I don’t think it matters a bit if you’re a Star Wars fan or not – this seems like the perfect collaboration for a dramatic, brooding palette with galactic gleam and a storm trooper on the cover to tie in with The Rise of Skywalker. I think Pat is producing some of the finest quality make-up that money can buy so I would not care what the cover was! I’ll tell you straight away that this particular palette is sold out on Pat’s own site at the present time and also displaying a sold out notice on Selfridges (UPDATE: they are hoping for stock on Tuesday). You can still buy the Star Wars lipsticks at Pat’s site HERE.
I’m trying to check if there will be a re-stock and will update if I hear. You might recall that Pat McGrath and Star Wars have teamed up before – ooh as I’m writing this I think I might even have a lipstick from the Max Factor launch that she created for The Force Awakens in 2015!
As you can see, it’s a six pan palette – going left to right on the top row : CosmiK, Venomous Void and Saturnalia, and on the second row it’s Smoked Amethyst, Odyssey and Bronze Nebula.
Despite it being sold out I’m hoping that these shades might re-emerge in other creations but even if not, they’re good illustrations of just how high beam these formulas are and how far you can take an eye shadow in terms of light reflectiveness. I have some more McGrath newness which IS in stock coming soon.
So, a terrible swatch taken under the light in my gloomy kitchen, but you see what I mean about the lightfulness – it’s off the scale, electric almost. All Pat McGrath metallics are at this level.
So, I had a rummage and found the original (complete with jumper fluff in picture – sorry 😉 ) from 2015. Anyway, pricing wise, at the top end, the palette, should it ever come back into stock is £50 and the lipsticks over at Pat’s site are £37.

The dark purple shade was in another palette all the other shades are new. The Gold palette three of the shades already in other palettes.
I bought the Dark Galaxy from Pat McGrath last Friday but it has not shipped yet. But I am not worried if it comes in the New Year. I know there are loads of complaints at the moment about this launch. People who are signed up for early release emails did not get them and then the Pat McGrath site released them early and they sold out in less than two hours.
Selfridges were due to release it on the 13th as well but their shipment did not arrive until the 14th and so they kept telling customers it will be a surprise when it does release. The bigger Dependence palette which releases tomorrow on Selfridges is not released until the 26th on the Pat McGrath site but the email I received early this week said the 19th which is when the film was released. It is like confused.com. LOL
People who ordered the lipsticks from Pat’s site which were $10 on Cyber Monday have not shipped yet! One person in a Facebook group I belong to got a very sorry but we oversold and cannot fulfil your order. The liptick is now discontinued so they cannot get more. They did give the customer a $25 discount but she really wanted her lipstick.
Oh my gosh – what a muddle. Thank you so much for clarifying. I’ve not heard back from anyone and I was really late getting this so it’s great that you’ve given us this information.
I ordered 2 of the lipsticks that were $10 and they are suppose to arrive today. I had not heard from PMG so I thought maybe they oversold the lipsticks, which sounds like they did but I was lucky enough to get my order fulfilled. My Dark Galaxy palette just shipped so it should be here next week. I only own the Divine Rose palette so I wasn’t too worried about repeat shades.
Fabulous! Hope you enjoy!
So expensive but stunning .
I received my Cyber Monday lipsticks.
Hi, My Dark Galaxy palette was shipped yesterday and due to arrive on 24th!
