Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn how do you feel this foundation would do with dry skin? Seeing that people are posting that there is alcohol in the formula it gives me pause as I do have pretty dry skin. 

P.S. - you look lovely in your photos BTW Smiley Happy.

I have combination to dry skin and I use tretinoin every other night and more often than not have a few dry flakes around (mostly under eyes and around nose and smile lines). I do not feel like it dried my skin at all, nor did it gather around said dry flakes. I dislike matte foundations and at no point I thought this looked matte (though I do not use matte/drying products to begin with).

 

On one of the e-mails I received from PMG explaining the foundation (I'll see if I can attach it here) it gave you tips on how to prep your skin. The tips that applied to my skin were basically what I already do to my skin on a regular basis, so I'd say that as along as you are treating your dry skin with a good routine and a non drying primer you should be fine!

My husband is a chemical engineer and works in the personal care industry, I also asked him to take a look at the ingredient list and he said he didn't think it was a drying formula. Alcohol (which can indeed be drying depending on the formula) is not the carrier and it is followed by glycerin which is a humectant.

 

I hope this is helpful!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@itscarin 

LOL whenever I go to Sephora he browses by looking at ingredient lists and making remarks like "they use some expensive ingredients here" or "this is a really cheap formula and they charge too much". Smiley Very Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn he’s a keeper! Lol

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thanks @Cyncynn that was very helpful and insightful!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thank you @niki172 ! I am glad <3

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn It looks really natural and skin like and you look gorgeous!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@makeitup305 Thank you so much Smiley Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn  Thanks for posting! It looks very natural and like something I look for on non-work days. I want to get it as soon as it becomes available but at the same time, I don’t need more foundations. Would you say this is a MUST have product or is it just ok? I know you haven’t tried it long enough but I just want your thoughts 😬 let me know! 😊

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@gonerogue 

Thank you! It's a lovely product and (like with everything I receive for free) I am trying to find something bad about it, but in this case I can't. It's on my top fav's foundations after using it for 7 days.

If I were on your shoes (I also have more foundations than I'll ever need) I would probably wait for more reviews or for it to be available at my local Sephora so I could sample it first and find a perfect match (since it isn't cheap, though it comes in a 35 ml bottle). 

 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn  thank you for the input but you had me at “I can’t find anything bad about it” lol I color matched myself online and will just get it when it launches to test it out for myself 😉 do you see how impressionable I am? 😂

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@gonerogue  Out of curiosity, what color do you plan on buying based on your color matching? I think I would wear a shade pretty similar to yours, but I'm having trouble deciding. 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PrettyPaint  I color matched myself using 2 foundations I normally use that match me well and got 2 different numbers. I got number 7 and number 10 but I’m going to go with 7 since the reviewers are saying it oxidizes a bit.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@gonerogue  Thanks so much! I hadn't read about potential oxidation issues, so that's good to know for sure. I was mainly just looking at the model photos on the PMG site, but I'll definitely lean towards a lighter shade if reviewers are commenting on it oxidizing. Thanks again! Smiley Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PrettyPaint  I did some swatching of shades 3-10. I couldn't tag you in my post for some reason but just scroll to the first page of this thread to see them. After seeing the shades in person, I think shade 3 is my normal shade and shade 5 is my "slight summer tan" shade just as an FYI.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@gonerogue  Thanks so much. That's super helpful to know!
