Pat McGrath Galactic Solar Divine Blush + Glow Palette Evaluate & Swatches

Galactic sun

Pat McGrath Galactic Sun Divine Blush & Glow TrioPat McGrath Galactic Sun Divine Blush & Glow Trio ($ 52.00 for 0.37 oz.) Includes two blushes and a highlighter; all three colors are also available individually on request. The colors were pretty consistent compared to the standalone versions, although Desert Orchid looked lighter and a little warmer the first time it swatched, but once upon that they seemed to end the same way.

For reference, Pat McGrath Rouges are available for $ 38.00 each and contain 0.34 ounces. if sold individually, the price per ounce increases to $ 111.76; The highlighters are $ 48.00 each and contain 0.16 oz. or $ 300.00 / ounce. (Note: the shade included in this trio is not sold individually at the time of publication.) The brand doesn’t state if the blushes weigh more than the highlighter in the trio, and I would guess it visually weighs the same space as the highlighter despite the volume, which looks different, less.

Because each product is the same weight, the palette includes $ 27.56 worth of blush and $ 37.00 worth of highlighter for a total of $ 64.56. If I did an overall estimate, I would estimate each to be about half its normal weight, so the highlighter would be closer to 0.08 oz. (valued at $ 24 in the pallet) and the blushes weigh a total of 0.29 oz. or $ 32.41 worth of blush for a total of $ 56.41. I think the palette seems right priced, and each offers a lot of product for many uses, less than the cost of two shades individually.

Divine rose

Divine rose is a muted, medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was soft to the touch, finely ground and mixed with a touch of powder in the pan, but it sat well on bare skin. It had a medium to semi-opaque buildable color output that was closer to the market. This shade showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Formula overview

$ 38.00 / 0.34 oz. – $ 111.76 per ounce

The formula should be “feather-light, long-lasting”, which “builds up easily from pure to subversive”. The blushes are available in two finishes – semi-matt and satin – and range from muted to livelier colors. The biggest “downside” to the formula was that it was pigmented rather than buildable so you could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found that I had to use a light to moderate hand to make sure that I don’t over- apply every shade.

The consistency was smooth, silky and felt slightly creamy; it was a little powdery in the pan but had more lubricity than most powder blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. The product is easy to apply to bare skin and over the foundation, as it diffuses well along the edges without absorbing basic products.

The satin pearl finish was bright but not overtly shimmering so it didn’t emphasize the natural texture of my skin. They carried with me for about nine hours before they visibly faded.

Desert orchid

Desert orchid is a medium-dark peach with warmer undertones and a satin sheen. It had a semi-opaque, buildable paint cover with a soft, silky-smooth texture that was blended and easy to work with. The color initially seemed less intense – lighter and warmer – than the standalone color I had, but an applied and blended one did not seem to distinguish it. It wore on well for eight and a half hours before it faded a little.

Golden nectar

Golden nectar is a light gold with bold, warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. It had almost opaque pigmentation in a single layer that could easily be built up to completely cover if desired. The texture felt silky until it was almost creamy (without being powdery or thick) as it glided. It was a good eight and a half hours before it faded noticeably.

Formula overview

$ 48.00 / 0.16 oz. – $ 300.00 per ounce

The formula is said to have an “ultra-reflective finish” and a “silky feel” to achieve a “high intensity shine”. The texture felt softer, almost wet to the touch, although in practice it was clearly a powder-based formula.

It had a mostly opaque buildable paint cover with a very thin, lightweight texture that applied evenly to bare skin and easily blended. The finish was “high intensity” but didn’t emphasize the natural texture of my skin. It wore on well for eight and a half hours before it faded a little.
