Product:
The Matte shades are on the slight powdery side with excellent pigmentation blend out beautifully.

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 contain the ingredients of Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, and Alumina which creates the mineral Glitter looks to the shadows. These can need a sticky primer to stick as they can be larger then what a standard primer can handle. Or Glitter glue! The chunky shades of Astral Solstice and Astral Pink Moon are the chunky style of this type of mineral glitter. Which Astral Solstice being a bomb explosion of it that needs a little more love in the primer department.

But most of the High Shimmer shadows from Divine Rose in  Refined Gold 002, Iridescent Pink 003, VR Rose Venus and Divine Rose II in Bronze Rosé 005, Gold Lust 001, VR Sextraterrestrial. This type of glitter is more refined which makes them work best on a sticky primer as this is the gel base to the formula instead of opaque pigment.

in VR Sextraterrestrial. Showing off the angels of this multi-chrome shade. 
VR Sextraterrestrial is a multi-chrome eyeshadow which unlike the normal duo-chrome eyeshadows which are a shimmer formula the only shifts from one shade to another. A multi-chrome eyeshadow is always a metallic high shine shade the can shit from 2 to more shade with a transit shade between the main shades. VR Sextraterrestrial looks like it only transitions from a deep rose pink to forest green, but as the light reflected in the transition of those two shade its more like yellow base green gold. This sort of iridescent shift it seen more often in nature than in pigments so it's fascinating to find this type of product now reaching the makeup world as it was something only seen in car paints at first, then nail polish which was the lead into eyeshadows.

Now this shade as an eyeshadow you can tweak the effect by putting down a base colour first. The video above the first swatch on the left was over an orange-based gold and it tints the shade to where the pink looks more copper and the green look more like a green-gold. The next one was next to a pink but mostly on bare skin as a control. The third swatch was over a pink shade that makes the pink of the eyeshadow pop more but it dilutes the green shift to look more yellow-based. The last one on the right is over a deep forest green that deepens the pink shade but enhances the green shift to look more green.

Now if you try to mix the shades with anther multi-chrome you lose the metal shine it produces and you lose the colour shift properties of the shade. They become just shiny eyeshadows. You can also use but a basic black eyeshadow to create a deeper but stronger colour shift with these types of colour they way the chrome back be paint over black. But if the shadow has enough concentrated pigment like this one it is not needed. ;)

Daylight & Flash swatches: Divine Rose in Astral Solstice VS Jeffree Star Cosmetics Supreme Frost Diamond Wet. 
Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VII Eyeshadow Palette in Divine Rose in the shade Astral Solstice. Compared to Jeffree Star Cosmetics Supreme Frost in Diamond Wet this has a very similar tone but the Astral Solstice has a deeper base shade that is darker than my skin town when applied as an eyeshadow. As a highlighter on the skin both perform the same way. ;)

Verdict:
Out of these two palettes, Mothership VIII Eyeshadow Palette in Divine Rose II is the most cohesive colour story the brand has put out yet. The mattes are tied into the blush theme of the plate which makes it a really fun addition to the line as most brands put in general brown blending shades to round out the story. A+ in my book is just too pretty all the way around. I hope Pat does this type of cohesive palette colour stories in the future. *_*

 The Mothership VII Eyeshadow Palette in Divine Rose I, however, is the most basic palette the brand has put out. However what saves it for me is they use the unexpected texture of the shimmer eyeshadows makes it worth it to me. I'm not going to lie I wasn't able to check this one out in person first... so when I got it in the email I was having some buyers regrets at first because I just don't use basic shades very often. It helps that this one leans cooler compared to most brands so its something I don't already have for a dusty mauve moments in my collection.
