Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thank you for a great review and reference pictures @Cyncynn. I appreciate any great review that actually gives clear information about the product instead of just pitching the sales and your review covers everything I wanted to know about this foundation. At C$90 I wanted to be sure it is worth the price tag and it seems like it is. Thank you for telling us that it oxidizes so we can choose shades carefully. 

As if I go with colour iq , it is matching my yellow 1Y08-2Y08 complexion with a medium with red undertone shade (Seriously does “Y “stands for red now?).

@fatimamummy 

Thank you so much - that means a lot Smiley Happy ! It is on the pricey side, but I'd though I'd mention it contains 35 ml vs the usual 30ml (17% more product). 

I never used the color IQ tool, I probably should stop being lazy and look into it. 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn I think you are better off without color iq. I mean it is good to get an idea of your skin tone but the foundation matches for one color iq number are worlds apart from each other.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@fatimamummy Good to know I am not missing out! 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I appreciate any reviews (Influenster or not) as long as it's informative and well thought out, as your reviews always are.  Please, keep them coming!  Thank you for sharing @Cyncynn this is super helpful, especially knowing it oxidizes a little.  I'm torn between two shades so I'll likely go with the lighter on now.  I can't wait!!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@michelleshops 

Thank you so much Michelle - can't wait for you to receive your foundation and hear your thoughts! I hope you love it :*

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn Keep posting your influenster reviews here.  I'm interested!  I get them too, sometimes.  I don't think it matters because you're under no obligation to write a nice review.  It's not like you're going to get paid more or get more gratis if your review is flattering.  

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@itscarin 

Thank you so much!

I agree and I'd never write a good review for something I didn't love - in fact I feel that I am harsher at products I receive as a gift. I dislike when people (influensters) immediately leave a positive review without trying the product for a least a couple of days, so I do understand the complain about some of those reviews.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thank you so much for the detailed review @Cyncynn. It's beautiful on you! 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PrettyPaint Thank you so much Smiley Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn  Thanks for your thoughts on this, and all the comparison swatches! 😊

 

And, yes, I’m not a fan of Influenster posts, but I feel differently about it when that post comes from one of our “inner circle” members lol...  I suspect some others feel likewise 👍

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PinkEvergreen 

All I read was inner circle and that made me so happy <3

I would add a smug looking gif if I knew how  lol

 

Thank you!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn  You betcha Smiley Wink

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
