t’s time for another Pat McGrath Labs makeup review.  HOORAH!! This time she is giving us EYEDOLS, seventeen single shadows.  These are the first single shadows released from the brand, and I couldn’t be more excited.  Six New Pat McGrath EYEDOLS Demo plus SwatchesWith our coral Satin Lined Beanie firmly on my head, I dug in.

The seventeen shadows are mostly popular shadows from PMGL eyeshadow palettes, both the Mothership and smaller palettes.  Included in the EYEDOLS are 6 brand new shadows.  There are mattes, shimmers and metallics, in bold colors or more neutral colors.  Wherever you fall on the makeup spectrum, there are colors to fit your style.

Pat McGrath is synonymous with quality.  I always know this is a brand that brings the quality every single time.  So, my expectations going in were as high as they get for makeup.  I purchased a trio, which are three EYEDOLS at a reduced price and then I purchased three more shadows.

I then used Deep Velvet, a deep plum/brown matte eyeshadow, and Telepathic Taupe a beige metallic, originally from the Platinum Bronze eye palette. Divine Mink, a brown gray metallic, from the Decadence palette, finished the look off.

These three shades meshed beautifully together.

Big thumbs up to Pat McGrath and her EYEDOLS!!

Sidenote:
Just something about the packaging.  Pat McGrath Labs is a huge brand, and it’s disheartening the amount of plastic they send out in their packages.  It’s so much, it’s hard to ignore.  My package of six small eyeshadows was filled with a box full on plastic confetti.  It was not only extremely messy and annoying, it was just unkind to the earth.  I hope that these big brands start to get more responsible, when it comes to plastic.
