Supernova Siren

Pat McGrath Supernova Siren Divine Blush, Bronze, and Glow Trio ($52.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that leaned a bit more on the darker spectrum (compared to the other two released) in depth. The quality was decent across the board, though I found the bronzer and blush to be on the powdery side and not my favorite texture applied to bare skin (relative to other offerings).

Ingredients

Burnished Honey

Burnished Honey is a dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

  • Medium, buildable pigmentation (as marketed)
  • Smooth, finely-milled, somewhat powdery and thinner than the permanent version
  • Applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading)

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.33 oz. – $118.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “buildable” with “demi-matte and pearl finishes” that “blurs” and “perfects” when applied. Only one shade had any real pearl/shimmer (Desert Glow), while the others were more of a soft or more “natural” matte that didn’t look flat on the skin.

The pigmentation was medium to semi-opaque and buildable, while the texture was lightweight, slightly thin, but velvety and smooth, which made it easy to apply more or less to achieve the desired coverage level in practice. The powders blended out readily on bare skin as well as on top of foundations, and they did sit smoothly/evenly without emphasizing skin texture.

The formula lasted eight and a half to nine hours on me with more mid-tone and deeper shades lasting longer than the lightest ones.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.34 oz. – $111.76 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “featherlight, long-wearing” that “build effortlessly from sheer to subversive.” The blushes are available in two finishes–demi-matte and satin pearl–and range from more muted to more vivid in color. The biggest “downfall” of the formula was that it was rather pigmented than buildable, so one could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found I had to use a light to moderate hand to ensure I didn’t over-apply each shade.

The consistency was smooth, silky, and lightly creamy to the touch; it was a touch powdery in the pan but had more slip than most powder blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. The product applied well to bare skin as well as over foundation, as it diffused well along the edges without picking up base products.

The satin pearl finish was luminous but not overtly shimmery, so it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. They wore around nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Solar Fantasy

Solar Fantasy is a medium, pink-leaning coral base paired with lighter, very warm-toned gold pearl that gave it a lightly, metallic sheen on skin.

  • Mostly opaque pigmentation (as marketed)
  • Smooth, finely-milled, somewhat powdery
  • Applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading)
