Product:
The Metallic/Shimmer shades do pack a punch regarding pigmentation, and the texture is buttery which allows you to sheer out nicely as needed but also intense enough to last on the skin.

The High Shimmer/Glitter shades are the stunners in this Blitz Astral Quad in Nocturnal Nirvana. They contain the ingredients of Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, and Alumina which creates the mineral Glitter looks to the shadows. These need more love in terms of a primer to get them to last on your eye all day but it's worth is

Colours:
Ritualistic Rose:
Antique Gold 002 is a  light aged warm gold with a high shimmer glitter finish. This shade is sheer but can be built up over a primer.
Rose Quartz 005 is a pale pink with a high gold shimmer glitter finish. This shade is sheer but can be built up over a primer.
Astral Rose Orchid is a warm wine with a shimmer glitter finish.
Beyond Bronze 003 is a deep warm bronze brown with a shimmer finish.

Wear: I get close to 8-9 hours of wear without a base for the matte and shimmer shades. The high shimmer glitter shades wear about 5-7 without a primer because of the larger particles. With primer all day. ;)

Packaging: The Blitz Astral Quad palette is a reflective black plastic box with gold mirror finish metal inlay panels and a magnetic closure. There is a bevelled mirror in the lid and the palette has a fair bit of weight to it for the "Lux" feel. You are definitely paying more for the packaging here for sure.

The palette is housed in a cardstock box that closes like a tie off folder which does give the palette a little bit of padding.

Pat McGrath Labs Blitz Astral Quad in Ritualistic Rose, Antique Gold 002, Rose Quartz 005, Astral Rose Orchid, and Beyond Bronze 003.
Daylight & Flash swatches: Antique Gold 002, Rose Quartz 005, Astral Rose Orchid, and Beyond Bronze 003.
Verdict:
This Ritualistic Rose palette has A+ eyeshadow shades in terms of performance. The shimmers are excellent and this one caught my eye in terms of the harder to find in a pressed pan formula on the market at the moment with the high shimmer/glitter eyeshadows.

Again my complaint is that this year Blitz Astral Quad's is being more expensive than last year's 6 pan holiday sets! That said these are the special formula shade they put into the 10 pan palettes so I'm not sure what the price trade-off is here.
