I bought the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Eyeshadow Palette and I love it. It's a palette full of warm shades of browns, bronzes, coppers and golds that are mostly shimmery but can easily be worn during the day and long into the night and would never clash with any shade of lipstick at all.

I recommend this palette for anyone who has warm undertones in their skin but I can see this eyeshadow palette looking suitable on a number of different skin tones either way.

This palette is for any makeup lovers who want to try out Pat Mcgrath eyeshadows, but don't want to drop $125 for the large palette. Simply put, the formula is like next level. Pigmented and smooth, the shimmers in this palette will not disappoint. They are also super blendable and easy to use. I would say Bronze Ambition is the perfect palette for my neutral girls or makeup newbies who want something high end. The shades selection in this palette make application almost intuitive.If I lost this palette or ran out, I would not hesitate to pick up another one. I have some swatches on my blog here:

The actual full name of this palette is "Sublime Bronze Ambition MTHRSHP Eyeshadow Palette" but I wasn't sure that would fit in the box for the product name! It's quite a mouthful! I was absolutely stunned to walk into my local Sephora and see this smack dab in the center of the aisle as soon as I entered the front door. Until that moment, Pat McGrath's cosmetics had only been available online and I prefer to see my makeup purchases up close and personal, especially when the cosmetics are on the pricier side (this baby is $70 in Canada). This is the only one of her palettes (so far) that is available in-store. I grabbed this almost immediately, after doing swatches of most of the shades and I am really happy with this purchase. Everything I'd read about the quality of her shadows - pigmented, blendable, creamy-smooth - turns out to be true.

In all honesty, I'd probably give this palette a 4.5 rating if I could because, like another of my fave palettes (the ABH Mario one), this is lacking a brow-bone highlight shade for me (matte or shimmery). And the packaging is nice but the elastic loop closure is a bit "faffy" though the magnets are strong enough to hold this securely closed. There is also a really nice mirror - it seems somehow "brighter" (if that makes any sense at all) than the mirrors in most palettes. The colour names are printed on a separate cellophane sheet (y'know, the kind that are a pain to keep track of and always seem to vanish within the first 2 months of use). The shades themselves are just gorgeous and pretty much what you'd expect from something with the name "Bronze Ambition":
Gilt Trip: a shimmery light gold (smooth as silk charmeuse and the lightest shade in the palette)
Bronze Struck: a rich and very wearable bronze shade
Copperized: a really rich and shimmery (almost liquid looking) copper; initially, I thought this wouldn't be a good colour on me but it's absolutely stunning on my mobile lids or on the inner 2/3 with something darker (like Illicit) on the outer third
Illicit: to me, the most striking and beautiful shade in a palette full of beautiful shades; it's a rich, slightly warm shimmery brown that reminds me of Urban Decay Thunderbird
Throwing Shade: a very warm, orange-toned lighter brown and a colour I thought would be the dud for me in the palette because it's so orange but as a transition/blending out shade, it works surprisingly well in the higher crease area and it's making me want to try similar shades I have but have been ignoring
Gold Rush: as the name suggests, another gold shade - this one is deeper and darker than Gilt Trip and while I like them both, I do wish one or the other had been replaced with a brow bone shade

This is a really beautiful palette and, compared to her larger palettes, the price isn't quite so alarming. And if you are someone who has been buying neutral shadows for years, this isn't a must have as you are likely to have dupes for most or all of the shades. But if you are newer to makeup, this is a good purchase and give you the opportunity to work with some really good quality shadows. Even if you have more eyeshadows than you can realistically use in your lifetime, you will still probably enjoy this palette.
