Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

@TraceyEB I’ve seen Suqqu mentioned a couple times here in the BIC and I’m curious about it, where is it sold? Like I could find their website but I was wondering if there’s anywhere I could see there stuff- it looks gorgeous.

 

And yeah, ND’s shade choices just frustrate me. Like the whole sunset palette is basically one big “nope” and after that huge warm palette she makes a Purple+ hot pink palette. I like the Lila and use it but IMO it would have been more unique and infinitely more cool/desirable if she’d gone purple/blue. It’s like she put all the shades I like most into those mega $200+ palettes and then decided to just never do them ever again 🤷‍♀️. I’m excited to see where they’re headed now that she’s doing the midi size now though. If she made a midi version of the 28-pans I’d probably buy both 

Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

@Brutalitops, Suqqu is not sold on the US or Canada, so nowhere to see it. I buy Suqqu from the dept store Selfridges in the UK and buy the annual international shipping service to support multiple orders a year of Suqqu and other brands. There's a BIC Suqqu thread to keep up with releases and swatches. Also, @Mochapj recently completed "the summer of Suqqu" on her IG  where she swatched and wore Suqqu eyeshadow and blush releases in her vast collection, which is a tremendous resource. The LE and UK Exclusive releases are quite popular and sought after. It has quickly become a preferred brand for me because the mix of eyeshadow shades, especially, is different from what we see from established brands.

Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

Interesting @TraceyEB, I’ll have to check it out 

Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

@TraceyEB  The PMG lip formula is perhaps my favorite.  I like both the Lux and the Matte (I like the sheers too but they aren't as good).  Valetta and Se*trology are my favorites lately (I've been doing the lights), along with Omi and Flesh 3.  The last two are in one of the mini sets!

Regarding ND- I have fallen in love with the shadows.  They are so easy and wearable.  I love Safari (not everyone does) and Sunset the most.  I also got Lila, Star and Gold (crazy right).  They are all good so the "best" is the one you will wear.  I like to use them as a base then add a little sparkle (usually from hourglass, PMG or tarte).  Let me know if you get anything, please!!!

Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

@meganlisa, thank you so much for sharing the ND lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes that you enjoy, and how you use the palettes that you have. Thanks for the link to the mini lipstick sets, too. Lots to check out! I learned today that there is a Sephora within an easy drive that carries the full line, so will put some time aside to visit that store, and spend some time with the ND line, preparing for Sephora's Nov. sale. Will circle back once I do! 🙂

Re: @meganlisa, I ordered it because I expect to get many eve...

@TraceyEB Can't wait to hear your thoughts!  My local Sephora carries both ND and PMG, so I go in to check the new items out before buying .  At the price point, doing so makes sense!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@meganlisa  TBH I really don't like this palette so I won't be buying it. But if you like it and will use it you should get it, especially with 20% off. I'm sure people in the community will have honest reviews. Influencer type reviews are always so bias IMO. They just want more free stuff. It doesn't seem to be LE either so you could also wait for the next sale. 😉

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@veronika23 You were an early advocate of the brand...

It isn't so amazing shade wise, but is more wearable than some.  I have so much eyeshadow that I'm on the fence about another one.  I do like to collect PM and am a huge fan.  I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of this palette.

Agreed that BIC is more honest than the influencer reviewers.  I can't believe how many reviews on this palette but then the percentage of actual purchasers seems nominal.  Frustrating.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@meganlisa  this palette was given to ppl via influenster so that's probably why there are so many reviews. TBH I find all that influenster crap cheapens the brand. Since it seems like a perm item there's no rush in getting it right... you can still think about it, maybe wait to see what deals there will be in the next few months... who knows what the Black Friday deals will look like. 😉

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@veronika23 Yes, black friday!!!  Of course.

Agreed on influenster.  It is hard to find another review on Sephora's site (and all of the influenster reviews are 5 stars.  Well, almost all.  But they aren't helpful the way the brutally honest BIC community is).  I will wait.  Thanks for the input!

 

Did you see these?  The lips are not new shades.  And not yet on the PMG site.  These look pretty.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@meganlisa  yeah exactly! xoxox 🖤

 

Thanks. I did. Thanks! 🙂 The quad with the aqua is pretty! And I like the blue packaging of the lipstick but not sure about the shades...  Christy looks nice but not like I need any of it anyway. 😄

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@meganlisa I was weak. I ordered Midnight Sun last night with extra ebates 10% cash back to complete my Mothership collection 😂🤣🤪 I worked late last night and fellt liked I need a treat 🤪 What I need to do is to find me a new job 😘

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@blackkitty2014 I will likely break before the 20% off is over and would have bought with the 10% had I looked on BIC in time and seen it.  Let me know your thoughts once it arrives?  I trust you!

I swatched midnight sun in store and liked it but- given I have just spent a lot elsewhere - couldn't justify the price.  Did you get the ND Metropolis?  I've been torn between that and Midnight Sun so have done neither (watch me end up getting both!).

New job?  Someone new would be very lucky to have you.  You will know the right time.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@meganlisa PMG direct shipping is slow and they havent shipped it yet.  I havent bought the ND Metropolis but it is on my list.  However, if i have to choose between the 2, i will go with the ND just because i like those green and blue and i dont think PMG VI is unique enough.  It is beautiful though. I really need to restrict on what i buy since i work from home almost all the days so i dont really need all those makeups 😉 The nice thing about work from home is i can cut down the commute time but then i end up work late, stress myself out and buying all the beauty junks that i dont need. 🙂

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@blackkitty2014 I don't work from home, get stressed and buy all of the makeup I don't need.  So, it isn't just you.

This palette is pretty and I can't wait to hear your thoughts.  I think I'm also more focused on the ND (though I'm still undecided with midnight sun being 20% off...tempting....).

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@blackkitty2014, PMG shipped my order shipped this morning, so hopefully yours won't be far behind. Update: Arrives on Monday. 🙂

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thx @TraceyEB 🙂

THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Just received this email.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Luvstravel  I also got this email and have tried all day to resist making a purchase, even with Rakuten’s 10% day. I keep reminding myself that I have one more rouge reward... but my local PMG-stocked Sephora still doesn’t have Midnight Sun in stock (I refuse to order it from Sephora online); and if I talk myself out of Midnight Sun, there are still a few PMG things I don’t have that Sephora doesn’t carry; and I could always use that rouge reward to get other things... ugh this is killing me! 😂😭 

 

Pat’s really been rolling out the promos this year, and it’s not even November yet. I love all the promos, especially since she’s raised her prices on several items. But they’re also too much temptation for me; I’m trying not to own nearly every lipstick she makes. 🤣 I do hope folks take advantage of all these promos! 

 

I see you ordered the vinyl gloss duo. Let me know what you think of those. I have one vinyl gloss that came as a set with a liquid matte, but I haven’t worn it yet. I’ve just played with it on my hand so far. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne Did you ask an SA? My store didn’t have them out but when I asked they pulled one from the back to put out as a tester 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Brutalitops  Yep, I asked an SA the night I was at the store. 🙂 That’s how I know they didn’t have any in stock: she told me they were still waiting to get their shipment in. I didn’t pressure her further about it because a different palette (Melt Radioactive) caught my attention and I bought that one; I figured I’d just wait a bit longer for Midnight Sun. 

 

But I finally caved last night and ordered it from PMG direct, along with a few more lip pencils and another LuxeTrance and maybe also another Lust gloss. I’ll use my rouge reward for other things.
