Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Assuming launch goes as planned tomorrow, I have to say that others could take a lesson from how they are managing the launch. I signed up for "early access" and the messaging was timely and clear with excellent expectation setting of how much would be available. 

 

I am sure that there will be complaints from people that cant or won't read/understand the messaging or dont understand a niche/high end product but it refreshing to see a ton of buzz, great marketing and also clear expectation setting. 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@lipstick4soul having participated in the previous releases, I can wholeheartedly agree that they have way better communication and procedures in place than most other 'indie' brands I've seen.

 

I am actually shuddering to think how the launch of this is going to roll out on Sephora...

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Hopefully I can get mine directly and ignore it Smiley Happy

 

I was interested in the first couple of releases but never really followed that closely but I am a total junkie when it comes to highlighters. My username should be magpie Smiley Wink

I <3 you @lipstick4soul.

 

I agree though. I appreciate concrete dates and times, with solid (free) notice. I've developed an obsession with Kylie's products this past week or so (I know, I know! #secretshame), and while I appreciate that her marketing is different, to say the least, and that concrete dates and times are provided, they aren't ever provided by the same method at any point in time. There was a restock last week that was announced via her app, which carries a $2.99 subscription fee. The last one I'd seen was explicitly stated on IG.

 

But again - concrete dates and times are appreciated.

I'm not on your guys makeup experience level but I've loved these since the second I saw them. I'm so tortured by which one to buy. I love them both so I guess I might end up getting them both.Since you all are more knowledgeable about these things then I, I  I was wondering if you had any thoughts or input about one over the other.

 

Has anyone purchased off the website before. I usually get an account set up beforehand but I can't find an area to do that. Or do they take PayPal?

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@PaletteAddict99 I've purchased from the previous 001 and 002 releases and they did not take Paypal at the time.  

 

In both previous instances they had it set up so that it was a 1/customer limit.  They do enforce it, too.  With 001 my first order looked like it didn't complete, so I went through the order process again.  Hours later I received 2 separate purchase confirmations and then days after I received word that they had cancelled the duplicate order in compliance with the 1/customer limit.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Mochapj Thank you very much for the info.

So what I understand you to say is that one person can not buy one of each color?

In that case I would have to save one of the colors for the Sephora launch date which I was hoping to avoid...

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@PaletteAddict99 I sent them an email inquiring about this. No replies yet Smiley Sad  If I do get one I'll post for sure!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@veronika23 Thank you that would be great to know. Their website gives me such a headache to look at that I feel like I'm missing stuff

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

yeah me too!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@PaletteAddict99 it is tough to say - her previous releases (Gold001 and Phantom002) were one choice/kit only releases, so the limit of 1/person meant you couldn't buy multiples of the same kit.

 

Previously they stated the limit was to discourage resellers.  Skinfetish003 having 2 options is a new scenario.  Perhaps someone who purchased during the re-release of individual Phantom products may know if she allowed the purchase of multiple items at the same time.  

 

I would just caution you to be prepared tomorrow that you may not be able to buy both.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Yes thank you! That is good to be prepared for as I could be trying for both and then end up missing them both Smiley Happy. I really don't need either but they are just so amazing!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Oh, and what is your skin tone, do you prefer warm (gold) or cool (silvery) colors?

If you lean warm or have a deeper skin tone, I'd recommend the gold.  If you prefer cool or have a lighter complexion I'd say to get the nude.

I'm a redhead (well, pink-head now) with light skin and I'm going for the nude...if I can get it!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I'm sort of light olive completed so I can usually go either warm or cool. I'm leaning towards Golden but ugggh I love both

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@PaletteAddict99,

 

I've purchased from the Pat McGrath Labs site (I'm not associated w/the brand, just a super fan, LOL).

 

They don't allow you to set up an account before hand but the checkout process was painless for me.  Not sure if they take PayPal, sorry.  I used a credit card for my purchase (not debit) just in case anything was compromised.  That way it's easier to cancel your info and protect your bank account.

 

The shipping was quick and it was all very professional.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

On these kind of releases I like to have all the info all loaded up into the website so I can just push the pay now button since I am the slowest typist in the world. LOL

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I was able to get Phantom 003 Copper single pigment.  I can post a pic if anyone is interested?

 

It came in an AMAZING bag of black/holo sequins that I have hoarded at home.  Planning a MAJOR craft project with those!

 

The pigment is pretty awesome, I have not even begun to scratch the surface of its capabilities (with different mixing mediums/applications and such).  

 

It was pretty pricey but the quality is there.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@leopardprint, it would be awesome if you could! Prior to the highlighters, I had never heard of this brand. I'd be interested to see how some of the other products work/wear. It sounds as if you've had a positive experience with them though, which is reassuring!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Hey @frametheface!

 

Pat McGrath is one of the major names in editorial makeup and she's been a creative consultant to several big brands (Cover Girl, and I believe either Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana).  She has the body of work to back her products!  I am kind of a stan of hers but she is honestly so talented.

Her pigment releases 001 and 002 have sold out in a flash.

I hope this image comes thru okay, I was having a hard time uploading.  I will post more shortly.  And just LMK if you want swatches, I can do that tonight!003 COPPER.png

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

OMG that is AMAZING!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Very helpful, @leopardprint! Thank you so much! The photo is super. If it's not too inconvenient, I'd be curious to see swatches. It looks like it would have a really pretty finish on it that I'd be curious to see!
