What does everyone think about the Holiday 2020 collection? I'm meh about it.

Overall, I'm underwhelmed. The mega palette has 18 shades - 12 are repromotes from the Star Wars collection. The quads are pretty to look at but they don't excite me. After buying far too many of the big palettes, I've come to realize that, except for the Divine Rose palettes, her eyeshadows just aren't for me. I look at them and struggle with putting a look together. There are far too many glittery shades for them to be practical to wear on a daily basis. I just can't justify spending a $129 on a palette if I don't love every color and every color isn't wearable.

I agree with your sentiments on this collection,The mega palette reminds me of the dark edit palette from viseart so i'm good there. the quads are lovely but I don't love them enough to justify the purchase. This collection will be a pass for me, thank goodness as i have a long luxury brush list! as for the big palettes I own, Decadance, midnight sun, the divine rose palettes, I re-homed the mothership III and mothership V palettes for that reason. the colours are too glittery, not wearable enough for everyday, I struggle to get looks out of them and even though I got them on sale, it's still a lot of money to spend on palettes I'm not going to use.

I am kind of relieved to see others feel the same way about some of her prior palettes and this holiday release. I was excited for a hot minute with the teaser IG posts...but then when finally revealed...I was disappointed. I look at the color story and packaging and it just doesn't seem cohesive or appealing to me. 🤷‍♀️ This will be an easy pass for me. I do wish she would do some more "wearable" color stories.

Hi, I was just wondering what everyone's favorite way to store their PMG Mothership palettes is. I'm getting ready to try and redo my set up on my dresser and was looking for suggestions on a good organizer for them since if kept in the cardboard packaging they're a bit on the thick side. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions! 😊

I want the pink/lavender quad and the blue/brown quad but for those who has last year xmas palette the blue one I double check the shade name and none were similar but I have a feeling it will create a similar look. I just hope the blue in the quad is a special shade (a lot of people think so) and is lighter then the blue in the other palette (picture taking from Pixiwoo ) http://www.pixiwoo.com/2018/10/pat-mcgrath-triple-fantasy-christmas.html)

that was my second question! do I need CT?
I thinks it’s absolutely beautiful. Not as subtle as the highlight in the Film Star Bronze and Glow but not as glowly as some ‘I can see you from space‘ highlights. The formula is beautiful on.

My only hesitation in saying you need it is the size of it! Does anyone really need a highlighter that big? I say wait and pick it up at Sephora during one of their sales.
