Pat McGrath Mothership VIII Divine Rose II ($125), is a summer palette that is the exuberant, vibrant baby sister to the Mothership VII Divine Rose. I was definitely not let down by the packaging. The palette itself upon first release, was done so with a limited edition pink package. I missed that one, and got it in the classic black packaging. While I did want it, I was more interested of the product on the inside.
The palette is complete with the usual ten shades. The color story in this Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose VII palette can create a number of amazing looks including more neutral glam and even some rose elegance. There are two matte shades, and eight shimmery shades. However, the shade Rose Seduction, is not intended for use around the immediate eye area, but it should do great as a blusher shade.
Shades in this palette include:
- Skinshow Rose Opal – Incandescent Champagne with Opalescent Shift
- Naked Blush – Mid-Tone Coral Matte
- Eleganza – Chromatic Plum Pink
- Bronze Rose 005 – Metallic Copper Rose
- Gold Lust 001 – Glistening Antiqued Gold
- Xtreme Burgundy – Deepened Burgundy Matte
- Divine Dusk – Luminous Rose Bronze
- Rose Seduction – Vivid Magenta Satin
- VP Sextraterrestrial – Fuschia, Golden Peach and Chartreuse Triochrome
- Astral Pink Moon – Glittering Peach Champagne
VR Sextraterrestrial is a unique shade as it is a trichromatic shade. I used it to create the look below. Although it doesn’t show as well in a still image, in person it is just amazingly gorgeous, turning from Golden Peach to fushia in bright light and a sultry Chartreuse once the light changes.
I wanted to create an intense date night look with this palette. I was happy that the pigmentation was not lacking and the shadows performed exceptionally well, as I have come to expect in Pat McGrath eyeshadow formula. If you have purchased this palette, let me know how you are enjoying it!
