Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I have received mine already! I wasn't expectig it to be so fast Smiley Very Happy I already have makeup on my face so i couldn't do much with it, just added some of the pigment on my eyelids and top of cheekbones. It is an iridescent pink. I keep tilting my head to see it glint lol (looks greenish white in the pan, i detect mostly pink on my skin) I think that the gold one is going to be much more wearable. I would love to hear from BTers who ordered both Smiley Very Happy

OMFG! I AM SO PISSED!!!

 

I got a call from FedEx that I have a package coming and have to pay duties and fees... guess they call ahead now... over 50$  which means my Pat McGrath will have cost me over 260$! (that's product, shipping, taxes/duties/fees and exchange rate)  NEVER AGAIN! I thought maybe I'd get an invoice at some point... not that high though... like 20$ Bad couple of weeks just keeps pilling on! UGH

@veronika23 Called fedex cs right away and have them waive the handling fee it's about $12 ..they are allowed to waive the first time only if the customer doesn't have an account for direct billing of duties. My guess is shipper didn't do the proper paperwork and customs dinged you which FedEx can't control but they can help by waiving their own fee the 1x. If the contents are made in u.s then I think they can't charge you duties anyway. So you can dispute after receiving your pkg. 

 

Really sucks when this happens you should contact the company and let them know that companies like tarte ship fedex also but never any charges, they need to do their ppwk right!

 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Anewxa last time I fought with FedEx I lost. I will definitely let them know... all these extra charges adds up to the price of one of their kits.

@veronika23 sorry i meant let Pat's company know that you were charged for duties and tax maybe they can reimburse you partially..my last large tarte order shipped with fedex 2day and i paid nothing. Tarte did good on their customs documents but Im guessing PML is still new at it. 

 

If you have had your handling fee waived bfor with Fedex they wont again but worth a shot. 

 

It sucks that experience like this leave a bitter taste and I would probably never order with this company..you are right the charges add up and so not worth it. 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Anewxa Oh I know lol. Sorry I wasn't specific. I meant I will let Pat's company know.

 

No I never got fees waived with FexEx. They didn't want to waive their stupid **bleep** brokerage fees... which were the only fees I had to pay... IMO that's double dipping. Someone pays for shipping and the receiver pays for "brokerage fees"... total BS. I hate them!

Ummmmmm wow that's friggin awful, wtf I'm so sorry Smiley Sad That's what I don't miss about living in Canada.  I'd order stuff from the US and always be slammed with these nasty duties, ugh! Next time if you want something, you can let me know and I'd order for you and ship via usps so that you don't have to pay that nastiness.

GUYS! GUYS! YOOHOOOOOO I found a way to get tracking!! Ok, so get yourself the Fedex Delivery Manager!! Sign up for that! It automatically knows when a package is delivering to your address! I just signed up for it and I see the delivery from Pat McGrath- ARRIVING TODAY! I'm so stoked! I live in Michigan BTW and I ordered around noon on Tuesday and chose the free shipping option Smiley Happy 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Oooh I have the UPS version and didn't realize FedEx also offered this service too. Mine are out for delivery today too! Thank you for sharing!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Mine is already shipped, @njattana but I placed my order around noon.

 

It looks like it might be delivered today.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Just FYI for anyone waiting on their's! I checked out with my first one around 11:30AM EST, and paid $5 for 2nd day shipping. It arrived today. 

 

I checked out with my second one (gold) after they fixed everything at about 3:15 PM EST. I also paid for 2nd day shopping. I emailed them inquiring about the status, concerned the second one may get cancelled. They sent me the tracking # and it's expected to be here Monday, after being picked up today. Just for idea of timing Smiley Happy. And their email team is super responsive!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Oh, that's fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing that information, @Libellules!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Can anyone describe how the "balm" is?? 0.0 

I'm most interested in that "balm" and I'm trying to find something comparable, if possible. Smiley Very Happy

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@HoneydewKThe balm is transparent, smooth and not sticky.  I think that it might be the real star - except for the pigments which are magic.  I copied down the ingredients if you want to do comparisons.  HTH

 

hydrogenated polyisobutene, trimethylolpropane Triisostearate, polyethylene, squalane, microcrystalline wax (cera microcristallina), polymethylsilsesquioxane, mica, dicalcium phosphate, silica dimethyl silylate, hydrogenated styrene/isoprene copolymer, pentaerythrityl tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, ethyl vanillin, glycine soja (soybean) oil (glycine soja oil),silica, argania spinosa kernel oil, cyclopentasiloxane, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, butylene glycol, bht, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, hexylene glycol, sodium hyaluronate,tocopherol

Thank you so much!! 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I found the directions! There were some very "do you boo" directions on the back, but there is also a small folded paper with instructions.  It was buried in the sequins (random question, I'm I the only one who wants to save and reuse the sequins if only because of how expensive everything was?)

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

ALIENGELIC GLEAM OF OTHERWORDLY OPULENCE. That is what I want.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Annaihk - I still have my bag of sequins from Gold001.  I have no idea why or what I'm going to do with them, and I curse every time I accidentally jostle them and knock it over, but I can't throw it out Smiley Very Happy

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Mochapj  I'm glad I'm not the only one Smiley Happy.  I see some very interesting DIYs in our future.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Boyfriend: You have 2 packages. 1 from Anthro and 1 from someone named Pat. 

 

Yea sure, we'll go with that Smiley Very Happy
