Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

This is the one that is making my knees weak. It doesn't help that the model is the same complexion as I am and she looks great with it on. May be skipping lunch a few times in the next couple of weeks to  pick this up - fiscal reasoning so I can "afford it" by a makeup obsessed mad woman Smiley Tongue

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

ACK!  Why did I see this?!  This is my go-to red - my total weakness Heart  I WANT!  Thanks for the post @veronika23...now I gotta go on a "low buy" so I can make a "big buy" soon! Heart 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@ZombieMetroAnt OH brother me 2!! I love these! It looks redder on her tho maybe it's her lip's natural pigment? Fresh 3 looks amazing too ugg! Do we know the formula yet for sure or no? I know you guys have discussed it below too but wondering if we have a definitive answer to this very important question. 🤔🙄☺️

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Another look at 1995.  I might actually get this one Smiley Very Happy

They are all so beautiful.  I really need to resist.  I've gone overboard lately.  My wallet needs to recover.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Another article from Allure regarding the formula:

 

Let's start with the formula, which McGrath painstakingly labored over for years to get just right — an intense matte that isn't too dry and feels feather light. "I didn't want a matte that felt like concrete," she said, hinting at the current obsession for heavy-duty, long-lasting matte liquid lipsticks that feel (and look) like shrink wrap over your mouth. "This formula doesn't mask the natural texture of your lips," she explains. "It works beautifully on top of a lip pencil, swiped on straight from the tube, or — how I always like to apply lipstick — tapped on with fingers." In fact the formula was tweaked particularly so it could be used for that purpose. "Most lipsticks, even mattes, are little greasy, but the Lust MatteTrance shades almost have a powdery finish; in fact, they feel and look like pure pigment, the payoff is incredible."

 

Squeee!! Just so excited. The tubes are cool, really happy they're metal. There were a few brands in the 80's that did great powdery mattes (Shiseido was one of them) and these sound very promising. Her previous lipsticks were great but these sound even better. 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Excerpt from an article over on Racked:

McGrath first gave us matte lipsticks in the Lust 004 kit she introduced last August, but those formulas were understandably overshadowed by all the glitter she provided for you to press over it. These matte formulas and colors have been years in the making. The formula is a true matte but doesn’t feel like “concrete,” McGrath said at a press event, surely a reference to the matte liquid lipstick formulas popularized by Kylie Jenner’s lip kits....

 

And while her past lipsticks have been presented in plastic cases (these are temporary collections, after all), she put these bullets into gold and black metal cases that have a nice heft to them, and feature a pair of lips prominently on the outside of the case. McGrath had to work closely with packaging engineers to place the bullet into these cases specially so that when you turn the lipstick up, the lips face out so that everyone can see it when you’re proudly applying your lipstick in public.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Mochapj So, i take that it is the same formula as the past lipsticks? Its kind of hard for me to understand from this.

 

If so, ill probably grab a couple. I LOVE the formula of those! 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

That's how I'm understanding it.  I'm REALLY hoping they're the same formula as the Lust 004 releases because they were incredible.  And I'm so happy I can just buy the colors I really want this time.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@sabrinas not sure - the rest of the article makes it sound like it could be a slightly different formula.  

 

They're supposed to be based on shades she was custom mixing for her kit over the years or something like that.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Ooh metal cases.  That's nice.  I definitely have to pick up some of these!  

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@michelleshops yeah, that makes me feel a bit better about them.

 

I'm imagining they might be similar to the Tatcha lipsticks Smiley Happy
