Pat McGrath's New Palette Takes You From Day-to-Night in a Bronzy Flash

Updated 08/17/18

We're convinced that every time Pat McGrath launches a new product, an angel gets its wings. Or maybe an alien gets its… spaceship? Regardless, Mother is gifting us all today with the news that she's launching a brand-new eye shadow palette called Mothership V: Bronze Seduction. We were one of the first to get a glimpse, and suffice to say, the shades are all we want to wear on our eyes (and cheeks and lips) this fall. McGrath first unveiled the palette stealthily on the runway at Valentino Haute Couture fall/winter 2018 earlier this year in Paris.

"I was obsessed with creating a Maria Callas moderne by balancing opulently operatic otherworldliness with regally resplendent jewel tones," she says. The palette features 10 different hyperpigmented shades in the reddish-bronze family and five different formulas, from glimmering golds to molten metallics to velvety mattes. "These colors are rich and fun," McGrath told me this morning. "You can wear them sheerly or layer them on. I'm really happy with this one." McGrath declared this her "best palette yet" as she swatched the shades in a room full of beauty editors, and after getting up close and personal with the palette ourselves, we can't help but agree.

If anything, it makes the fact that fall is around the corner just a little less depressing. Keep scrolling to get the first look at the Mothership V: Bronze Seduction Palette.
