Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

My Ritualistic Rose quad arrived a couple days ago. I haven’t used it on my face yet (I wanted to test the Roen 75º quad first) but the first time I swatched it, I wound up hypnotized by all the pretty sparklies. Smiley Very Happy Seriously couldn’t stop staring at my arm for 5 minutes. 

 

Today I did some layering experiments with Astral Rose Orchid for myself and a friend. Neither of us want Divine Rose, but we both love VR Rose Venus—and she’s almost willing to drop Mothership money for a single shadow. 😬 She asked me to talk her off the purchasing ledge. I said “sure, you don’t have a true dupe of that shade, especially not in that formula. But I bet you can get kinda close with your rose quad and Bronze Temptation. And ‘kinda close’ might hold you over until VR Rose Venus shows up in a future release that costs less than $125, right?” 

 

Here are the swatches I did for her. Individual shadows are on the left, and combos are on the right. 

 

BDC40455-64D7-42CD-96E0-9ADB00FB4E18.jpegWhat happens when you layer Astral Rose Orchid over MTHRSHP duochromes.

None of the combos = VR Rose Venus, but I didn’t expect them to. I just tried for a similar fiery gold to pink shift, using an astra that’s basically the super glittery topper version of that shade. 

 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Tom Ford's Sphinx cream shadow might work as a dupe--lovely fine sparkles, peachy-pink golden shade.  It came out a few years ago, and when I saw VR Rose Venus I immediately thought of it.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@KVeritas  Hmm, I’ll take a look at that one. There’s also a pretty close ColourPop dupe: though it obviously doesn’t feel like Pat’s VR formula, it does look an awful lot like VR Rose Venus. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne  That was you convincing her NOT to buy??? That would have convinced me to buy it! Not that I need any encouragement....😂🤣😂

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@mermadelove 🤣 Unlike me, my friend rarely uses her Bronze Temptation 6-pan. (I love that palette.) But now she’s fallen back in love with it, especially for its duochromes, and most especially for Provocatrix. Since she also has the Ritualistic Rose quad, she’ll have fun layering it over various other things in her collection. And nope, she no longer wants to buy Divine Rose just for one shadow—or so she says. Hey, I’m not her keeper, she can do what she wants with her money. But she asked me for help not spending it, so I happily obliged. Plus, I discovered how fun Astral Rose Orchid + Corruption is. Smiley Happy 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne  Bronze temptation never called to me. I ordered and am still waiting for Ritualistic Rose. I am hoping Divine Rose eventually comes to Sephora so I can use a Rouge reward to get it!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@mermadelove  Heh, I love Bronze Temptation so much, I intentionality cracked its cardboard spine hard so I could keep the palette from doing that drunk Venus flytrap thing all the MTHRSHPs do. 😂 I was sold on its 2 duochromes and that shimmery minty green. But I understand that palette’s not for everyone. I know someone who hates blue eyeshadows on herself, so she’s not attracted to any palettes that contain them. 🤷‍♀️ 

I hope your quad arrives soon! And it’s great to get any Mothership for just $25 instead of $125. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne  wow you love it that much??? Hmmmmm maybe I should revisit. I LOVE blues...... My quad arrives tomorrow. Yay! Also, I may be getting that palette for $100 instead of $125. I get rewards from work that I can cash in for gift cards and I have enough for a $25 at Sephora right now. I tried again to get the $100 Rouge reward and it had been literally impossible for me this time. I’ve tried 6 different ways six different times and it’s like Thunderdome had a baby with The Hunger Games trying to get that reward!!!! 😤🤬🤯

Very uncivilized. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Anyone heard about this? If it's not glitter, I would be VERY tempted. I haven't been interested in enough in the full color stories of the other palettes. This could be the one!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Really hoping this comes to Sephora so I can just buy it here. PMG shipping always takes the longest 🙄

My first order was okay... but then during the half of sa...

My first order was okay... but then during the half of sale, forget it. A kit went OOS and I didn't get any info until I contacted them. And then my other kit showed up, but I got the delivery notifications a week later. 🤷

Re: My first order was okay... but then during the half of sa...

@danielledanielle  That sounds annoying. Sorry to hear that but I’m glad you still got your stuff. What did you end up picking up? 🧐

Re: My first order was okay... but then during the half of sa...

The first order was a full sized Mattetrance.  That arrived quickly and I had to go sign for it... Wasn't left at my door. Then when the 50% sale occurred, I ordered the gold kit and copper kit from Metamorphosis 005.  Anyhow, I expect slower service in a sale, but I hadn't received any texts or emails that something shipped and I literally signed for a lipstick, so I was expecting something.   The gold kit showed up, and the notifications came a week afterward.  I reached out to PMG and got a refund, but the late notification kind of got my hopes up because I thought maybe the copper kit was coming to me!  I like the gold kit, but it's really similar to FB Trophy Wife on me, really wish the copper didn't go OOS, but c'est la vie.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sprocketta this palette has 4 repeat shades from other palettes so it might be worthwhile for you. It still has one very sparkly glitter shade, which is the same as the one on Midnight Sun.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sprocketta Ok, sanity check, from the owner of a million palettes.  This palette is stunning and love PM mothership palettes.  But - I have blue eyes.  Seemingly, this palette is much better suited for those with brown eyes.  Yet, still, I feel that I must have it.  Sanity check.  For those with blue eyes, and in a world of other stunning choices, is this rose palette really the one I should be stalking?

RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sprocketta I posted swatches of it below. It was exclusive to Selfridges a week ago

Re: RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thanks! @Mochapj 

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I see that ritualistic rose quad has been removed from the Sephora site. Is this permanent? I was hoping it would come back before the sale ended. Bummer.

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Check out the Pat McGrath website! That’s where I got mine when I saw it was sold out at Sephora. My purchase also came with one of her liquid lips - so definitely check for promos.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@childrenofdune @danielaxxo I hate to disappoint but it's rare that stuff that sells out during the sale comes back before it ends. 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I've been eagerly waiting for it too. I really hope it comes back in stock. Someone pleaseeee tell us what's going on.
