The Pat McGrath Labs Subliminal Platinum Bronze Eyeshadow Palette is the first eyeshadow product I’ve bought from Pat McGrath. The palette comes in gorgeous packaging and contains 6 beautiful shades. I have a full review and swatches of this palette today so please read on.
As you might know, Pat McGrath is a luxury high-end beauty brand. The high-end vibes start already with just the outer packaging. It’s so beautiful and different, I can recognize Pat McGrath Labs products easily. The actual inside of the products always look amazing too, the quality seems amazing and overall worth it’s the higher price tag.
Even though I loved the Pat McGrath Labs Luxetrance lipsticks, I felt like the price tag was a little too high since I’ve tried more affordable lipsticks with a pretty similar formula. I was very curious how this would be with an eyeshadow palette.
The Pat McGrath Labs eyeshadow palettes have been on my wishlist for a while now. I absolutely love the color stories of literally all the palettes. The bigger palettes are so beautiful! But let’s be honest, so expensive as well! I just couldn’t get myself to spend $120 for one 10 pan palette. I already felt like paying $62 for a 6 pan palette is pretty expensive but I waited for a discount before I actually bought the Subliminal Platinum Bronze palette.
Do I think this palette is worth the price tag? Is the formula better than other great brands? Let’s find out!
Pat McGrath Labs Subliminal Platinum Bronze
Indulge in a ritualistic rebellion of golden taupes, rich, powerful bronzes and velvet-soaked plums, leaving lids iced in a cool riot of glamour fatale. Mysterious and seductive, the entrancing formulations are alluringly blendable, releasing hypnotic pigments that flawlessly envelop the eyes in unfaltering elegance. Summon the allure of the ultimate enchantress in a captivating collection of colour that lingers with subliminal intrigue.
Pat McGrath Labs Subliminal Platinum Bronze Swatches
The formula from this palette is very nice. The powders are soft and pigmented, which makes it very easy shadows to work with. Swatching on the arm is as easy as applying the product to the eyes. I had no problem at all, the shades blended easily and I mentioned barely fallout. I had a little bit of kickback in the pan but nothing bad.
The shades in this palette are more on the cool-toned side which I actually really like. I own a lot of warm-toned palettes so this palette is definitely an addition to my collection. I think the names are actually funny and cool, for some reason they match the palette very well.
Pat McGrath Labs Subliminal Platinum Bronze Review
Overall, the quality of this Pat McGrath Labs palette is amazing. As I said before, the packaging looks great and different than other brands. It’s also very sturdy so you can easily travel with the palette. Moreover, the cool-toned color scheme is a beautiful addition to my collection.
The formula is very easy to blend so I definitely think this palette will work for makeup beginners as well as makeup artists. The pigment is great as well, so you don’t have to go in 100 times to get the payoff you want.
The price is definitely on the higher side and I can imagine that not everyone wants to spend that amount of money on an eyeshadow palette. I would recommend just waiting for a sale! Pat McGrath Labs is doing a couple of sales during the year, but in my opinion, Black Friday is their best.
I have no cons other than the price, to be honest. However, I do think there will be more affordable brands out there with a similar formula which will work perfectly too. This palette actually reminds me of the NARS Voyageur palette in Suede. Even though NARS is another high-end brand, that palette retails for $38 which is already more affordable than the Pat McGrath $62 palette.
Would you spend $62 on a 6 pan eyeshadow palette? Let me know in the comments!
