Behold the cult-classic Palette that started it all. Each shadow in this essential collection was exquisitely curated from over 20 years of Pat’s legendary artistry and stars the structure-building genius of her beloved backstage taupes. The colour story begins with a Quad of cool neutrals, ventures through glimmering metallic gold and ends with supernova sparkling blue. Six emollient, ultra-glide Powderluxe shadows provide an incredibly creamy and a smooth, even layer of intense colour payoff. Four hybrid formulas illuminate lids in an array of scintillating finishes, ranging from metallic and satin sheen to heavenly iridescence and a shade-shifting holographic. All shades are designed to wear stunningly on every skin tone, inspiring endless looks from minimal to major.

Pat Says
"This is the Palette that started it all! It's an exact replica of my most coveted go-to colours for every show and shoot over the last 25 years. It features six shades that build eye structure in a natural way, along with options deep enough to create a dramatic smokey effect. I also included some accessory shades for a pop of colour when the mood strikes. Sublime silky mattes, major metallics, glistening glitters, otherworldly iridescence and illuminating highlighters – this Palette has everything!"

Anatomy of a Palette

Accent the brow bone with Skinshow Nude. For otherworldly highlights, apply Astral White or Pale Gold 002 over the IntensifEYES™ Artistry Wand or use a brush dampened with water. Press onto the centre of the lid for a veil of sheer shimmer, dab on the inner corner using a small detail brush and swirl across the cheekbones as a highlighter.

Use structuring essentials Depth, Ultimate Taupe and Xtreme Black to sculpt the crease, socket and lashline and to emphasise the outer corner “V.” Make Ultimate Taupe you go-to for seamless blending and transitioning between lighter and darker shadows. Ultimate Taupe and Depth also double beautifully as brow colour and contour for the nose, cheeks, forehead and jawline.

Major multitasker Substance does it all. Pair it with other shades – including Lilac Dusk – or use it alone for a “one and done” look. It’s also perfect for creating a softer smokey eye.

Bejewel your lids, lashline, outer corner or the entire eye with the sapphire glitter of Blitz Blue. Layer on VR Violet for a shade-shifting chromatic effect. Apply with a damp brush, finger or the IntensifEYES™ Artistry Wand. Sweep onto the temples for an editorial look.
