November was my bday month as I was turning the big 35. I allowed myself to enjoy whatever I wanted as I deserve that level of energy. One item I stumbled upon was the Pat McGrath Celestrial Divinity Palette which if you know anything about the Pat McGrath line their palettes are out of this world great. I have wanted to take a plunge on their shadows as I’m totally devoted to their concealers.
Pat McGrath Celestial Divinity Palette
I will say out of the gate, one of my major pain points is their shipping. I have ordered direct twice as they often have great sales but with that, you will wait for a bit to get your item. If you’re in a rush you will probably have to go through Sephora and get 2-day shipping. If your good with waiting then go forth babe.
The Celestial Divinity palette is a mixture of shimmer, glitter, and matte textures with some warm browns and golds and some gorgeous duo-chrome purples, pinks, and green.
For a limited edition palette, palette material was a bit of a let down as it’s a paper palette versus their normal hard cases. However, I think this allowed for the price to be considerably lower than their norm which is what has kept me from trying coming in at 78.00 on both Sephora and Pat McGrath.com.
The eyeshadows are buttery soft and pigmented. This made me very happy as a newbie to their eyeshadows. With other palettes I have tried sometimes colors can look great in the pan but don’t translate on the skin, especially darker skin tones. I love that you don’t need a lot on your brush and there was very minimal fall out as the worst thing is to have your foundation and concealer on perfectly and eyeshadow falls down.
I found myself needing to include my other palettes especially my core MAC palette to get a full look as I’m not one to use all shimmer on my eye looks as it looks a mess. This only works if I am going for an extra shimmer look but I know that doesn’t translate well on me. I prefer how mattes look on me and really anyone as it looks cleaner on the eye especially for everyday use.
I’m the queen of a warm transition shade for my eye looks and this didn’t allow me to be one palette and done. I felt that the 2 matte shades which were brown and pink didn’t provide me what I needed for the pop I was looking for. But both matte shades worked well so that is a plus if I was wanting to use them.
Overall do I feel this is a must-try, no. If you are in the market for a luxurious splurge yes this palette can be that but if your someone who doesn’t wear shimmer, glitter, or color this will become a pretty paperweight or will be in the back of your makeup collection. If you are a dire heart matte neutral girl this isn’t going to make you spring into color unless you’re looking to update your beauty game then this might help you get your feet wet.
I hope this review on the Pat McGrath Celestial Divinity Palette was helpful. Have you tried anything from the Pat McGrath line yet? If so what are your fav items? If not, do you have a wish list of items? Let’s get chatty in the comments!
