PAT McGRATH LABS. An “EVERYTHING” Review, PRE-Mixed and Brought To You, With A Bit of MEHRON MIXING LIQUID….

Hello, Beauties!

It’s a Monday morning in May, and pink and gold sequins are scattered across my kitchen counter. Myself being the glitter/sparkle enthusiast that I am, is loving every minute of opening up my new, Pat McGrath Liquid Lust 004 Lab in “Flesh”, and my Pat McGrath Metalmorphasis 005 “Everything Kit”. The Mehron Mixing Liquid, is staring up at me, waiting to be “metal-ized” and mixed with Pat McGrath’s 005 Pigments, in Gold, Copper, Bronze, and Silver. Pat McGrath’s “Flesh Microfone Glitter” is practically begging me to apply it over one of her creamy “Flesh 1 or 2” Lipsticks that come in the Lust 004 Kit, and the “Gold Metallic Pigment” is eagerly waiting to “foil-ize” on to my lips with the “Clear Vinyl Gloss”.

Where should I even start?! The possibilities seemed endless, and the mix-in combinations are plentiful. Just the products themselves, like the cream shadows, lipsticks, and glosses, are already gorgeous on their own. And adding even more pigment, glitter, and gorgeousness is almost too exciting in itself, because this is the kind of makeup regimen that I always have craved, and dreamt about, because it gets exhausting experimenting with pigments and certain mixing liquids, etc. and wondering if they will compliment each other, or even adhere to one another, due to ingredients like silicone, oil, and water,   that can actually cancel each other out…. BUT PAT McGRATH DID ALL THE EXPERIMENTING FOR MAKEUP MIXING, FOR US, AND PACKAGED THE PRODUCTS UP IN A PRETTY, LITTLE, SEQUIN FILLED BAG, AND DELIVERED IT RIGHT TO OUR DOORSTEPS.

There’s no doubt that Pat McGrath Labs is one of the most unique, high fashion, and science+artistry based, makeup artists/brands in the world. And now, her self named makeup company, is one of the best beauty brands in the industry. Haven’t heard of Pat McGrath?? Well let me tell you how important this game changing, brilliant, makeup artist turned entrepreneur, actually is…

Pat-McGrath-Labs

Pat McGrath is said to be one of the most important, if not the most important, makeup artist in the world. Her high fashion masterpieces, and insanely incredible makeup artistry skills, bring me to silence. She’s the da Vinci of MUA’s, and she’s worked her ass off to get where she’s at. She’s done EVERYONE who is ANYONE’S (celeb/model-wise) makeup for multiple high fashion magazine covers, (W, Vogue, In Style, etc.) and is the makeup artist who basically runs the entire makeup artistry department, behind the scenes, at Fashion Week, for all of the big named designers.

W Magazine’s Rihanna Pictorial Spread: Makeup By Pat McGrath

Super Model’s call her “Mother”; which is probably why her self made makeup line features Eyeshadow Palettes called Mothership, and Mthrshp, 1, 2, & 3. She’s also directed makeup line launches for High Fashion Brands, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Giorgio Armani. So last year, when she launched her self named makeup line, Pat McGrath Labs, it’s no surprise that her Limited Release LABS, are selling out, and her products are becoming every Beauty Buff’s go to, for high color payoff, foil-ized lips, and glitter looks that actually STAY in place.

Below I’ve posted and reviewed some of my favorite Pat McGrath Labs products, Kits, and Labs, and I’m here to let you know that Pat McGrath Labs, is the industry’s newest makeup line, that is all about artistry, science, and creating your own High Fashion masterpieces.

Thank you, Mother.

Amen.

LABS.

Pat McGrath offers her one of a kind, Labs that come with everything to mix, experiment, and play with pigments, glitters, creams, metallic powders, to create glosses, lip colors, eyeshadows, lip toppers, foil shadows, etc. It’s the ultimate way for true creative minds, and artists, to experiment with customizing, and not having to worry about wasting product on a mixer that’s not right for said product. Her Labs are always Limited Release, and they ALWAYS SELL OUT! So make sure you sign up for Pat McGrath’s Newsletters, New Product Alerts, and Restock Alerts with your email address on http://www.patmcgrath.com!!

Her eye Labs come with two to eight Creams and Pigments (depending on which Lab you purchase, Mehron Mixing Liquid, which is a clear liquid, that you can use to mix and apply pigments and shadows with, to “foil-ize” and “metal-ize” your eye creams, pigments, and shadows that come in the Labs, as well as her famous, Black Duel Ended Marker, that is literally, a “marker” style liquid eyeliner, that has two different tips; one pointed, and one thin and flat, that gives you ultimate precision, when applying liquid eyeliner.

Her lip Labs come with two to six different Lipsticks (depending on which Lab you purchase), Clear Vinyl Gloss, which is used to mix with the Metallic Pigment(s) that come in your Lab, one to three Metallic Pigments, and one to three Glitters, that can be topped onto the Lipstick, and you can create an effortless, glittered lip. The Clear Vinyl Gloss, literally has a vinyl looking, and feeling finish, that can be used alone, or with the products that come in the Lab. MAKE SURE you always use a Lip Brush, to apply the Clear Vinyl Gloss, because you don’t want any pigment, glitter, or lipstick to get into the gloss itself, because you want the gloss to stay clear, to avoid any color or formula changes.

 

PAT McGRATH LABS.

BATCH: LUST 004

VERSION: FLESH

FIRST EDITION/LIMITED RELEASE

Colours Available:

  • Flesh
  • Blood Wine
  • Vermillion Venom

 

Pat-Mcgrath-Labs-Lust-Lipstick-Set
http://www.patmcgrath.com

CONTENTS:

  • CLEAR VINYL GLOSS
  • FLESH MICROFONE GLITTER
  • GOLD METALLIC PIGMENT
  • FLESH 1 LIPSTICK
  • FLESH 2 LIPSTICK

Mixing your own colors, pigments, glitters, and foil lipstick/glosses is like a science experiment brought to you by, Barbie. You can apply either of the lipstick singles and wear them alone, or you can top them with Microfone Glitter (in whichever color you decide to order, OR you can get them ALL in the Lust 004 EVERYTHING KIT.). Since I went with the LUST 004 FLESH LAB, I will explain the application process exemplifying those specific colors. BUT the application process is the same, for each product and color from whichever LAB. you decide to go with. 

FLESH 1, is a true nude, which is beautiful on EVERY skin shade. It doesn’t wash you out or look grey, and it compliments light to ebony skin tones. FLESH 2, is a mauve-y nude, that also compliments all skin shades, and is great for wanting a more pink-y based nude lip. FLESH MICROFONE GLITTER is a rose toned nude based glitter, that adheres to either FLESH 1 or FLESH 2. And it stay put all day, without having to touch up or reapply even after drinking or eating.

CLEAR VINYL GLOSS, is a clear lip gloss, that can be worn alone, or over either lipsticks.  The gloss dries and sets to a true vinyl finish, which is pretty extraordinary in itself. The shiny plastic-looking finish, is one of a kind, and if you are looking to raise the bar on your Lip Game, this is definitely the way to do it. It can also be mixed in with the GOLD METALLIC PIGMENT, to create a gorgeous, high fashion, and head turning Metallic Foil Lip, that is truly metallic. The gloss and the pigment mix together like a dream, and you can add more pigment for a bolder, brighter, and opaque metallic coverage.

TIP: I tried mixing the MICROFONE GLITTER with the CLEAR VINYL GLOSS, and it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would; the glitter is too grainy for the gloss, and it takes away the vinyl look that the gloss is meant to provide. If you do want to use the glitter and gloss together, apply the gloss to your lips first, and then apply the glitter on top of the gloss, and the glitter will adhere to the gloss just fine. Just don’t mix them together before application. BUT you CAN mix in the METALLIC PIGMENT with the gloss before application. The pigment doesn’t effect the gloss’ finish or formula.

Colours Available:

  • 005 Bronze

  • 005 Gold
  • 005 Silver

http://www.patmcgrath.com

CONTENTS:

  • MEHRON MIXING LIQUID 
  • BLACK DUEL ENDED MARKER 
  • BRONZE 005 CREAM
  • BRONZE 005 PIGMENT
  • COPPER 005 CREAM
  • COPPER 005 PIGMENT

  • GOLD 005 PIGMENT

  • SILVER 005 PIGMENT

The METALMORPHISIS 005 LAB, is a makeup artists DREAM. There are so many different options (especially in the METALMORPHISIS 005 EVERYTHING LAB, which comes with every color listed above). But if you decide to just go with a single LAB, there are still so many finishes and pigments to play with, mix, and create.

Each LAB comes with one of the above mentioned colors in two different formulas; For example, it comes with a COPPER 005 PIGMENT, which can be worn alone, or mixed with the MEHRON MIXING LIQUID, which is included in the LAB. The MEHRON MIXING LIQUID is a clear liquid, that is used to adhere, mix, accentuate pigments and creams, and create liquid or cream pigments, shadows, liners, etc. When mixed with the pigment, you can create a long lasting metallic/cream eyeshadow, or liquid liner. Then it comes with a COPPER 005 CREAM, which can also be used alone or mixed with the MEHRON MIXING LIQUID, to create a metallic, foil finished, creamier, longer lasting eyeshadow. You can break down the cream or the pigment even more, by adding more mixing liquid, and make a gorgeous, foil finished liquid eyeliner, liquid eyeshadow, and you can even go as far as making a cosmetic paint to create Festival Makeup Looks, Runway Looks, or High Fashion Editorial Looks, that won’t budge, and lasts over 24 hours (although I don’t recommend wearing makeup this long, but I did sleep in it to find out about the wear time). It also comes with a BLACK DUEL ENDED MARKER, which is a liquid eyeliner pen/marker; one tip comes to a fine point, and the other tip is pointed and triangular, and comes to a flat end. It’s a #WingedEyelinerWednesday wearer’s perfect solution for the perfect liquid liner application, and is extremely easy to apply.

LuxeTrance Lipstick is an ultra pigmented, creamy, and long wearing lipstick, that comes in a wide variety of colors, that are separated into 4 different color categories. If you love nudes, reds, darks, or brights, there are several different options.

You can wear them alone, under a gloss, over a PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil, (or any lip pencil, for that matter), or pair colors together for a beautiful ombre’ effect. The creamy, satin finished, colour melts into lips, and into one another, making it perfect for lip contouring, or an ombre’ effect, lip look.

It’s long wearing, but still moisturizing, and you don’t have to worry about the color caking, cracking, or drying out your lips. LuxeTrance leaves a gorgeous satin finish, that’s still long wearing, and easy to touch up on the go.

MatteTrance Lipstick is an ultra-pigmented, matte finished, long wearing lipstick. The matte finish makes for a longer wear time, than the LuxeTrance Lipstick, even though the LuxeTrance Lipstick, is extremely long wearing, as well. The colors are separated in to 3 different color categories, and has a wide variety of color options.

For those of you who prefer liquid lipsticks, due to their long wearing capabilities, but hate the way they dry out your lips, cake, and crack, MatteTrance Lipstick is the PERFECT option for you. It’s highly pigmented, and gives you opaque lip coverage in just one swipe, but it doesn’t permanently dry, like liquid lipsticks do, so touch ups are easy, and you don’t have to worry about the formula caking or cracking.

You can pair MatteTrance Lipstick with PermaGel Lipliner, or any lip liner for that matter. You can wear it under gloss, over lip liner, or alone, to get full coverage color, that lasts all day. Best of all, you see what you get, when it comes to choosing your perfect/favorite color(s).

PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencils are the best of the best. The creamy, highly pigmented gel formula glides onto lips, without tugging, and without having to sharpen it before every use, due to it’s high color payoff.  It’s long wearing, blendable, and comes in an array of different shades that can be worn alone, paired with your favorite lipstick, or worn under a gloss.

The formula is ultra creamy, and since it’s a “gel” formula, it’s extremely long wearing. The texture is extremely similar to Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liners, and MAC Cosmetics Pro Lip Pencils, but the wear time is almost triple the amount of those above mentioned, lip liners. The color payoff is extremely high, and it’s super pigmented; You get what you see, with PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencils, and one stroke of liner provides opaque and extreme coverage.

Lust:Gloss is a “never sticky” gloss that adds dimension to your lips, and “smooths and soothes” your lips, while adding highly pigmented, shiny, color to your lips. It’s long lasting, and there are color options with or without glitter. It does NOT have a vinyl finish, like her OG Clear Vinyl Gloss, but leaves a lasting shine. And since GLOSS is kind of EVERYTHING right now, I suggest getting your hands on at least one of these chic and beautiful glosses, before they sell out! You can also purchase Pat McGrath’s Lust: Gloss EVERYTHING KIT, which comes with every single gloss pictured above.

 

 

EYES.

MTHRSHP Sublime: Eyeshadow Palettes.

Colours:

  • Bronze Ambition
  • Platinum Bronze
  • La Vie en Rose

 

SPRING-PALETTE_OnBlack_Singles_Open_Sublime_grande
http://www.patmcgrath.com

MTHRSHP Sublime: Bronze Ambition, (as well as all of the other palette options, are creamy, highly pigmented, gorgeous ready-to-wear eyeshadows, that give you full coverage color, with one swipe of a makeup brush. This is one of my favorite palettes that she offers; the colors are perfect for a natural, daytime look, or you can create a beautiful nighttime, over the top, or festival look.

These are powder eyeshadows, but they feel creamy, due to all of the pigment in each shade, and as far as the colors go; what you see is what you get. It’s very easy to go overboard on a daytime look, because these are so pigmented and gorgeous. These palettes are also NOT SOLD OUT, (yet) because they seem like they are going to be a permanent addition to Pat McGrath’s Makeup Line, but then again, that could change.

These (along with any of PAT McGRATH LABS eyeshadow palettes and colors) can also be mixed with MEHRON MIXING LIQUID (which is available in one of the METALMORPHISIS 005 LABS) and you can dip your eyeshadow brush in the liquid, and then into the eyeshadow, to create an ultra metallic or foil finished eye, or you can create a liquid liner.

Skin Fetish: 

Colours:

  • Nude
  • Gold
  • Bronze
Pat-McGrath-Skin-Fetish-Highlighter-Balm
http://www.patmcgrath.com

Skin Fetish: is a strobing and highlighting cream that comes in a “stick” applicator, for easy application on the high points of your face, and easy strobing and contouring. They are available separately, or in a Kit, and can be applied straight from the stick, or with a brush for a lighter, softer, application. Either way, this is a formula that stays put, and has a high color payoff. And I highly recommend it.
