Pat Mcgrath Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palette Arrives Today in Two Gorgeous Shade Selections

Iconic Illumination and Nocturnal Nirvana are two new shades available in the Pat Mcgrath Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palette that launched today. Each palette is $65 and holds four 0.05 oz eyeshadows. I was just playing around with the price a little bit compared to some of Pat Mcgrath’s 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes like the new Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette that just launched. That palette contains 10 and it holds 0.47 oz of eyeshadow with a price of $125. These smaller quads contain 0.20 oz of eyeshadow at $65. You are getting an additional 6 more shades in the larger palettes for $60 as well as a bit more product for that price. So, these smaller quads are a little expensive compared to splurging on a larger one. EYEdols Eye Shadow singles are 0.038 oz each and $25 so if you purchased four of them that would set you back $100 and you’d get 0.152 oz of product. In that case, the quads become more appealing for that price.

All that being said people will likely feel more inclined to spend $65 on a luxury eyeshadow palette versus $125. Plus sometimes people enjoy a smaller palette and feel less overwhelmed by the shade choices. I know sometimes I like to just grab a quad versus a palette contain 10 plus shades.

The standout choice from the Pat Mcgrath Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palettes will likely be Nocturnal Nirvana not only because it has a festive Winter princess vibe but also because the shades are a bit different and unique compared to shades available in larger Pat palettes!

Shades include:

  • Incandescent Gold 003 (glittering golden sparkle)
  • Blitz Aquamarine (glistening blue green)
  • VR Emerald (sparkling emerald duo chrome)
  • Blitz Purple (vivid purple sheen)

The safer of the two palettes would be Iconic Illumination. It’s also a palette that contains shades that are a bit like what we’ve seen in past larger palettes.

Shades include:

  • Astral Gold Allure (glittering platinum gold)
  • Blitz Bordeaux (sparkling deep burgundy)
  • Blitz Brown (rich chocolate brown)
  • Bronze Gold 003 (glistening golden bronze)

Both are gorgeous to say the least. I might just be picking up one or both!

Pat Mcgrath Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palettes are available now.

    But only one has the VR shade! LOL! What I don’t want is the purple shade because swear I have similar looking purples from Pat. Ah, if only I could pick and choose what comes in my palette.

    • Isabella Muse

      true true! the purple is looking the same as others from her line! I did think that shade quad was the most unique though as the other one seems very easily to dupe if you own some of the ten or six pans!

    Don’t you think the price tag for this quad is just absolutely bananas?! I think that as a Canadian consumer, I’m particularly shocked. The 6-pan palettes went from $70, to now $86. And this new quad comes in at $86 too. I have just 3-letters: W-T-F.

    • Isabella Muse

      I actually went over the price in the post ๐Ÿ™‚ most of the post was actually about the price lol

  • Rebecca

    Are these new shades, or shades that already exist in her larger palattes? Also, will someone just buy ALL the Pat McGrath for me?

      • Rebecca

        I know! And you can divide up your payments on her site too. Honestly, I’m just afraid once I give in, I’m going to put myself in the poor house. I mean, I’ll look stunning, but I might be living in a cardboard box.

        By the way, have you tried the Pat McGrath foundation? I’ve heard it’s light coverage but wears well.

        • Isabella Muse

          LOL! we don’t want that ๐Ÿ™‚ only buy what you can afford never anything over that ;-D I haven’t! I purchased the set they have but haven’t used it yet! I gotta get down to it ;D

          • Jaimie

            The VR Emerald looking amazing!!! Wish I could just buy that color. ๐Ÿ™‚
