Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Ooh I didn't know they were that super limited. Oh by the way, I emailed and got a response back Pat McGrath says we can buy both colors! 1 of each. So tough to decide which one

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Ohh I didn't realize this was releasing today! I may want the nude set if I can **bleep** it up!

 

Lol that bleeped out word is another word for grab, I didn't think it was considered a bad word on here 😛

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

no worries! Sometimes BT is weird that way and bleeps words that shouldn't be bleeped! 😄

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I got a reply for shipping to Canada!

 

Yes we do ship to Canada via FedEx International and there is a flat $25 rate.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@veronika23 that's in the FAQ on their website 😉

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Mochapj Thanks. I had a few questions and that's the only one they replied so I posted here

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

 

To @frametheface here are my swatches of the copper pigment. This looks almost red in pan. But in different lights, on diffent skin tones, and w/diff mixing mediums, you can see brown, gold glints, true copper, and a beautiful iridescence. 

I was a little bummed because it pulls red on my eyes as shadow. But I'll just need to find that magic application for it. 

Argh, I'm on my iPad and it keeps eating my replies so I might need to PM you if this doesn't work!

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 🙂

 

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 😉

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I ❤️ 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.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

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 😞  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 :). 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!
