Belle of the Ball

Pat McGrath Belle of the Ball MTHRSHP Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette inspired by Bridgerton’s season two. The palette includes two gel-powder eyeshadows, one baked eyeshadow (comparable to Astrals or other “special” shades in the larger Motherships), two more traditional shimmers, and one matte eyeshadow. All six shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use with the most sparkly shade having some fallout during wear.

Refinement

Refinement is a very pale pink with warm, almost peachy undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and finely-milled–almost silky to the touch–and produced full color payoff in one layer. It stayed on well for 10 hours before fading visibly.

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.

Forbidden Amour

Forbidden Amour is a dark, pinky-plum with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which was paired with a smooth, velvety texture that wasn’t powdery and had some substance to it, which ensured it retained its opacity even on bare skin. It wore well for 10 hours before showing signs of fading.

Regency Romance

Regency Romance is a vivid, medium-dark pin-coral with a satin finish. It featured a gel-powder formula that was smooth to the touch, dense but not thick or stiff, and blendable with a particularly flattering sheen on skin. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Daring Dandy

Daring Dandy is a very pale, greenish-aqua with warm undertones and multicolored pearl that gave it a high-shine, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a slightly translucent base. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense but not overly thick, and easy to work with. It stayed on well for 10 hours before fading visibly.

Diamond’s Desire

Diamond’s Desire is a rich, medium-dark rosy copper with moderate, warm undertones and a mega-dose of multicolored sparkle (mostly gold and pink) with a slightly translucent base. I think this is comparable to many shades with the name “Astral” in them, though this was nearly opaque from the get-go. I would recommend using this over a slightly tacky base or with an adhesive spray to minimize fallout over time, as there was some over the 10 hours it lasted for otherwise.

Forever Charmed

Forever Charmed is a rich, darker olive green with warm undertones and a lightly metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a dense, slightly firm feel to it, though it wasn’t stiff nor difficult to pick up with a dry brush. It lasted well for 10 hours before fading noticeably.
