I get excited whenever Pat McGrath launch something new, but the new Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette makes me extremely excited and it's the prettiest palette they've ever launched.
The Divine Rose II Palette was extremely popular when it launched, but the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette is set to be even more popular – and it's huge!
HOWEVER, it's not just one palette, it's a whole collection; Pat McGrath The Celestial Divinity Collection. The whole collection launches September 25th right here, and I have all the information for you….
Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette
Whenever Pat McGrath is launching something new, she reveals these videos where a model pushes off gold sequins from the products and blurs out the name, and then as the launch day gets closer, more details are revealed.
The Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette is different to any of her other palettes, as it's a really big palette with eighteen shades. Normally Pat McGrath palettes feature ten shades, six shades or four shades.
The Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette has a beautiful pastel pink design with an ornate golden Egyptian Eye of Horus inspired design, with filigree gold details. The detailing is on the outside of the box, but it's also carried through to the outside of the palette.
This palette is particularly unique for Pat McGrath because it has cardboard packaging, with a design that's different to their other palettes.
This palette has cardboard packaging, and not plastic packaging like the Divine Rose II Palette, but the recent Rose Decadence Palette had similar packaging with a mirror inside the lid.
When I saw that the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette was a ‘Mega' Palette, I assumed the price would be around the $200 / £200 price point, but you can see on the front of the palette that the combined weight is 19.8g, so that would mean each of the pans contain 1.1g of product.
Which is still a generous amount of product, but the Pat McGrath eyeshadow pans typically contain 2g per shade, so the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette contains almost half the volume of product per pan.
When do you ever finish an entire eyeshadow pan, so I actually think smaller pans are better, especially if you then get more shades for a lower price point.
I'd much prefer more shades, with smaller pans than a large palette of large pans and a small amount of shadows.
The Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette is going to be lower in price than the Mothership VII: Divine Rose (which is $125) which is exciting, as it means it'll be more accessible for those who were perhaps put off by the high price of the ten pan palettes.
It is going to be $78;
“8 sublime shades. 1 major masterpiece. The *NEW* MTHRSHP MEGA: CELESTIAL DIVINITY Eye Palette stars vivacious violets, planetary pinks, meteoric metals and notorious neutrals in a solar system of sumptuous finishes from seductive shimmers to marvelous mattes.

The images for the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette were leaked ahead of the launch which was supposedly down to the palette being sent to people to try and review for Influenster, but some decided to sell the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette on eBay and Mercari. This has happened for the last couple of Pat McGrath launches.
Last Christmas, Pat McGrath launched a whole Star Wars themed collection which everyone went crazy for. It was very limited edition, and many Star Wars / Pat McGrath fans were bereft after missing out on the products.
The new Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette actually contains TWELVE shades that featured in the Star Wars Collection.
The Pat McGrath x Star Wars Collection featured two six pan palettes; the Dark Galaxy Palette and the Galactic Gold Palette. The new Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette features all six shades from those two palettes, and then SIX brand new never seen before shades.
This decision has divided fans on social media. Those that missed out on the Star Wars Palettes are thrilled, but many are gutted that this new “MEGA” palette is two thirds repromotes. People need to realise, the Star Wars Palettes were extremely popular.
However, PMG was unable to re-release them as they were part of a licenced collection, so this was the only way she was able to bring them back for the many, many people which wanted them back.
Although the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette doesn’t contain the Celestial Moon shade from the Galactic Gold a Palette. It has been replaced by a shade called Galactic Gold instead, which is strange.
I personally think it’s absolutely beautiful, and the jewel tones are so stunning. I’d like to think that this is a permanent palette, but that hadn’t been confirmed yet, but it’d be great if the Star Wars Palette fans could repurchase the palette if they loved the original.

I think this Pat McGrath Labs Mothership Mega Celestial Divinity Palette is absolutely beautiful, and there are some really unique shades. It appears there’s only three mate shades in the whole eighteen, which won’t please some people.
But if you have many eyeshadow palettes, you already have basic matte shades many times over, so you could use this palette to accompany your existing palettes for a pop of colour, or jewel toned effect.
