Pat McGrath Eternal Eden Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Eternal Eden

Pat McGrath Eternal Eden Celestial Divinity Luxe Eyeshadow QuadPat McGrath Eternal Eden Celestial Divinity Luxe Eyeshadow Quad ($58.00 for 0.24 oz.) is another rose-themed release that included two matte eyeshadows and two shimmery eyeshadows (one is more pearl-like in its sheen, the other is quite metallic and shiny). All four shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable, though one shimmer was thinner than usual and one matte was a touch powdery.

Pink Mystique

Pink Mystique is a brighter, medium pink base with subtle, warm undertones paired with much warmer, more peachy-gold pearl throughout that gave it a light, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan, though it seemed slightly thinner than most of the brand’s shimmery shades. It wore nicely for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.04 oz. – $625.00 Per Ounce

Pat McGrath’s eyeshadows are, generally, supposed to be “super-saturated” with “creamy, soft textures” and “extreme blendability and adherence without creasing.” A lot of how well they perform (and to some degree, how they are supposed to be applied and marketed) depends on the type of shades, but by and large, the eyeshadows perform very much as they are described.

The brand released single eyeshadows in March 2019, and the shades have been consistent in quality, look, and feel. They are not removable, unfortunately, so one would have to depot like any other single eyeshadow–I tried using tweezers and lifting on several shades to no avail. The lids are held closed by a weak magnet, so I’m not sure they’re as secure as most single eyeshadow compacts in my stash–I wish it really locked in, but there’s definitely a magnet that pulls the lid down if it’s within 2mm of the base.

The mattes are velvety, blendable, and dense without being thick or too heavy, and they have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation where a little can go a long way with some of the deeper and richer hues. The satin and pearl finishes are smooth, lightly creamy, and firmer but not dense or thick with good pigmentation, blendability, and easy application. The more metallic finishes tend to be softer, creamy, and smooth with a bit more denseness and no powderiness. The sparkly/glittery shades are often designed to be applied wet for richer coverage or intensity, which has largely been my experience. Most of the shades last between eight and nine hours.

Temptation

Temptation is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, velvety, and finely-milled with some substance, so it had rich coverage that wasn’t prone to sheering out but was still easy to blend out. The eyeshadow lasted well for nine hours before fading visibly on me.

Earthly Delight

Earthly Delight is a darker mauve with subtle, warm undertones. The color appeared warmer and lighter in the pan than it applied. The base seemed warmer and closer to the color in the pan when really diffused and blended out, but it had more of a purplish overtone. The texture was velvety and smooth, lightly powdery but not prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit is a rich, medium-dark plum with warmer, more coppery undertones and cooler, plummy sparkle that gave it a very intense, metallic finish. The texture was creamy–more like a cream-powder hybrid to the touch–with moderate density and a bit of thickness relative to other shades in the palette. It was intensely pigmented with good adhesion that wore nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.
