Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sabrinas Thanks for the review. Sorry it didn’t work for you. I have oily skin and my pores aren’t huge but aren’t very small either. I need to check which Toronto store has this available so I can grab a sample to try.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sabrinas ,

Sorry that this didn't work for you!  Thanks for telling us your results.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thx you for the review @sabrinas Sorry it doesn’t work well for you. I want to try this out but want to wait for more reviews first 😘

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I went to the sephora store and got a sample of the new foundation. Just tried it today and loving it so far. I have sensitive skin so I hope I'm not allergic, I have been allergic to every liquid formula I've tried and it often takes a week of applications for a reaction to show up. 

 

I have dry skin and don't find this to be drying, though it feels a tiny bit tight around my chin area. The rest is okay and it has a satin finish that makes me look radiant.

 

I actually applied with my fingers after the sephora rep told me she did and that's what pat mcgrath suggested and I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked. I did not use a primer today and it blended in perfectly on one side of my face - can't see the foundation at all. On my other cheek as well as my nose, it looked a bit powdery as those areas were drier/flakier. I always have problems with my nose. I will experiment with exfoliation/primer/sponge and see how it goes, but the initial results were impressive to me. My biggest gripe with foundation is that I can always see it no matter how good it is, and I'm hopeful that will change with this one. 

 

I don't wear foundation much but my go-to is the Tom Ford stick foundation. I'm the shade 1.5 Cream and that and the PM Light 5 seems to be a match. One coat of this is much lighter, natural coverage than the stick foundation. It feels more lightweight than TF but also not as moisturizing. 

 

My only con with the foundation is that like the TF stick, it feels a little wet/tacky after you apply and doesn't dry on it's own. I never set it because of my dry skin and this makes me wait longer to apply the rest of my face. It wasn't as wet as the TF, and after 5 min I applied my powder products and it turned out fine even though it still felt like it was wet.

Thx you for the review @xcicee ❤️

THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

got 10% off in the email this morning so wasnt a terrible price on the set with the foundation, primer, and powder. Just noticed prices went up on alot of stuff of hers also!!! Mascara is now $30 (I think it was 26 before), lip gloss is now $30 and used to be $28, eyeliner is $28 up from $25, and all of the little 6 shade palettes are now $65 instead of $55...just fyi Smiley Happy

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I noticed that too but I wasn't sure when it happened.  It's a shame but I love her products so I won't complain @Notyourbeyotch I think they're worth it!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Bummer about the raised prices, @Notyourbeyotch.  Thank you for letting us know.

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Not sure if this is helpful at all, but if though I’d post swatches of the PMG foundation in shade 4 and a before and after. On the top right photo I am only wearing skincare + foundation (no concealer).

 

I received through Influenster for free yada yada (I know some hate Influenster, but I though the images could be helpful!). I only tried it twice so I can’t give my final thoughts. I am doing more testing with different primers etc. I would say it’s probably a satin finish, but the skincare/primer you use will def make a difference in that. I moisturized my skin and used a more emollient primer in this photo and barely powdered with the CT pressed powder. I used only 1 pump and the photos are unfiltered/unedited under natural daylight. 

 

I did have a very positive first impression. The formula was thin and liquid-y, it gave me a meaningful yet very skin like coverage. The final test will be how well this photograph at night with flash. It did oxidize a little, so if you're in store swatch it and wait 10/15 minutes for the final shade.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn This foundation looks amazing on you! Thank you for sharing!

 

Best,
Rebecca 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@RebeccaBT Thank you <3

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

The PMG foundation looks beautiful on you! Your skin looks natural and it doesn't look like you have much makeup on (this no makeup, makeup look works well on you). <333

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PenelopeBT  Thank you so much <3

I really wish I was more adventurous, but we like what we like lol.

 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Cyncynn

It looks amazing on you! I’m always open to any review especially ones as detailed as yours. And the swatch comparisons are so helpful! Thanks 🙏 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@trishavt Thank you so much. I find swatch comparisons so important, I find that undertone 'descriptions' wildly vary from brand to brand, so pictures are super helpful!

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?).

 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@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 :*
