Pat McGrath Huetopian Dream Mothership Palette Review & Swatches


Huetopian Dream

Pat McGrath Huetopian Dream Mothership Eyeshadow PalettePat McGrath Huetopian Dream Mothership Eyeshadow Palette ($125.00 for 0.47 oz.) will work best for someone who doesn’t mind experimenting with application techniques, using additional products (like a tacky base), and doesn’t mind potential fallout if it means ultra sparkly goodness all over one’s eyes. This Mothership really felt like it was coming from more of an artist perspective than some of the past few palettes (like Divine Rose) that have been more user-friendly and foolproof to work with.

Three shades–Bronze Solaris 005, Astral Venusian Orchid, and Astral Amethyst Moon–have chunkier, slightly drier consistencies that were more translucent in base product, so they had a lot of sparkle, gave a particularly high-shine, almost wet, finish, but they were more prone to fallout during application and during wear (particularly during wear) than I’ve previously experienced with these formulas in past palettes. The brand noted that these three shades should be applied with a damp brush, which was how I tested and reviewed, but they really need a tackier base (like the IntensifEYES Artistry Wand launched with this palette).

I wouldn’t say it’s really optional; dampened with water gets you better initial application (less fallout, more coverage, and a more even layer) but there’s still noteworthy fallout while worn; the Astral shades in particular were enough to be mildly irritating (as in, I could feel things in my eye). I tested those shades applied with MAC Fix+, which is a common product people use to wet eyeshadows, and the brand’s new IntensifEYES Artistry Wand (review to come, probably) and had similar results with both, but they both minimized fallout during wear to the point where I didn’t find my eyes irritated at the end of the day. The Artistry Wand had slightly more tackiness initially so the product was less readily disturbed compared to Fix+.

Based on past experience with Astral shades, I really think that these should have been described as something else and notated as sheerer/translucent with amplified sparkle. If you’re someone who has found past Astral shades to be too sparkly or prone to fallout, I would imagine these would perform more extreme for you (in a bad way!). If you don’t mind fallout, like the shine and sparkle of Astrals in the past and tend to use a tacky base/primer, then you may love these for being more intense.

Skinshow Nude Xtasy

Skinshow Nude Xtasy is a light beige with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. When really buffed out, the finish could look more pearl-like with less intensity, but it still had a fair amount of shine. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense but not thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan, so it picked up well with a dry brush and had good adhesion to bare skin. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.

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.

Secret Eden

Secret Eden is a dusty, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable, though it was a little powdery so I had to be careful to tap off excess to avoid fallout. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Bronze Desire

Bronze Desire is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was denser and a little thicker, but it wasn’t heavy and still applied evenly, blended out well, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s texture. It wore well for 10 hours before fading a bit.

Bronze Solaris 005

Bronze Solaris 005 is a medium, golden copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling,, lightly metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage applied dry and opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush; the latter was as recommended by the brand and the method I used for testing and rating.

The consistency was drier and chunkier, and I had to really buff and press the eyeshadow onto my skin to get an even layer of product, but in the process, I did have a moderate amount of fallout. The ease of use and texture were a departure from base 005 kind of shades, which have been smoother, creamier, and easier to work with using dry and wet brushes. It was best applied with a dampened finger, as I felt I was able to better press/buff with my fingertip than a brush but dry still had so much fallout.

This shade had more underlying color, so while I had fallout during application and some during wear, the base pigment lasted closer to nine hours on me.

Astral Venusian Orchid

Astral Venusian Orchid has a translucent, darker pink base that shifted slightly to plum at more extreme angles paired with chartreuse-to-gold shifting sparkle throughout. It was very sparkly, shiny, and noticeably textured, and the formula itself seemed drier, a little chunkier, and did not seem to have as much adhesion on its own compared to other Astral shades that have been released previously.

The brand recommended to apply the shade with a dampened brush, which worked to deposit more medium coverage that had some fallout and decent initial adhesion, but the fallout for the first few hours was noticeable (and irritating to my eyes), even though there was plenty of product still intact after nine hours of wear. The effect is pretty without using a tackier base, but the continuous fallout made it much harder to get away with using the product more “as is.”

I tested the shade for longevity applied wet (with just water), wet with MAC Fix+, and over the brand’s new IntensifEYES Artistry Wand. I found that the wear was similar with MAC Fix+ and the Artistry Wand with the wand giving slightly less initial fallout as it was a bit tackier. I did not feel like there was a big difference in opacity or how shiny/sparkly the end result was, so long as the product was used wet in some fashion (water or otherwise).

Xtreme Plum Noir

Xtreme Plum Noir is a medium-dark, plummy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque, buildable color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well, though I found it wasn’t quite as effortless as some of the brand’s other mattes (including the two in the same palette). The texture was soft, smooth, and not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Shockwave is a bright, neon coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The product had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, velvety texture that was slightly thinner than other mattes but not powdery, so it had excellent adhesion and blended out well. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading and left a faint stain behind.

Blitz Sextreme

Blitz Sextreme has more of a black base with fine, metallic multichrome shift that went from reddish-bronze to warmer orange/copper to antique gold to green. It had visible shift, even straight on, where the edges tended to look olive green-ish with a more bronzy center area. The texture was smooth, moderately emollient but not too thick, so it picked up well with dry and dampened brushes. The brand said to use one’s fingertips or a dampened brush, and those both worked well, but I had no issues using it with a dry brush. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for 10 hours before creasing faintly.

Astral Amethyst Moon has more of a translucent base with flecks of copper, fuchsia, and lavender sparkle throughout. It had larger, more textured sparkle compared to most of the brand’s other Astral shades, and it seemed a little drier, too, which resulted in fallout during application and during wear. I will say that I was surprised that the fallout during application wasn’t too bad–I expected way worse–but there was noticeable and definitely more fallout during the first few hours of wear than I’ve experienced previously with Astral shades.

The brand stated to use it with a dampened brush, which is how I tested longevity, but it was still a messier shade to use even with a dampened brush. It would not be ideal to use with a dry brush, and fingertips were so-so, as they improved coverage to more medium coverage but this shade really needed a tackier base to actually give it decent wear and minimize fallout. It’s one thing to have fallout during application–just do your eyes first!–but fallout during wear can result in irritated eyes. Even with noticeable fallout, there was still a lot of product that remained in place on the eye when I took everything off after 10 hours of wear, though.

I tested the shade for longevity applied wet (with just water), wet with MAC Fix+, and over the brand’s new IntensifEYES Artistry Wand. I found that the wear was similar with MAC Fix+ and the Artistry Wand with the wand giving slightly less initial fallout as it was a bit tackier. I did not feel like there was a big difference in opacity or how shiny/sparkly the end result was, so long as the product was used wet in some fashion (water or otherwise).

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.
