@ChristalM Thanks! I wanted to use a gift card on it but I guess I better jump on this 10% while I can.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Since I just PMGed my arm up to help a friend decide if she reeeeally needs the Gold 005 Kit or any of the new quads, or if they’d just be dupes of what she already owns, I’ll also share my finger swatches here. 

 

I’m sure many folks have already done swatch comparisons of some of these :D but here we go!I’m sure many folks have already done swatch comparisons of some of these 😄 but here we go!

Top to bottom:

[shade name - palette/collection name]

 

  1. Incandescent Gold 003 - Nocturnal Nirvana Quad 
  2. Gold 005 Cream - Gold 005 Kit 
  3. Gold 005 Pigment - Gold 005 Kit 
  4. Gold Standard - MTHRSHP Metalmorphosis 
  5. Copper - MTHRSHP Metalmorphosis 
  6. Smoked Amethyst - MTHRSHP Metalmorphosis 
  7. Blitz Purple - Nocturnal Nirvana Quad 
  8. Purple Reign - MTHRSHP La Vie en Rose 
  9. Synthetica - EYEdols single 
I added Copper as a color reference because she frequently combines purples, coppers, and golds. I’ve already told her to consider buying the 5-pan mini palette that contains Synthetica and Gold Standard, rather than buying the Synthetica single (she owns Metalmorphosis), if she really wants that shade. But I think she’s decided to get the quad instead, now that she’s seen how different Blitz Purple is from the other 2 purples. 
 
And if anyone’s wondering what the difference is between Gold Standard and Gold 005 Pigment: the pigment is much more sparkly than Gold Standard. This photo doesn’t capture that well. But if you wear that gold pigment on your lids, people will ask what you’re wearing. 😄 

RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Holy crap! Gold looks terrible on me but on the right skin tone this is clearly amazing. Thank you for great swatches!

@WinglessOne, this is very helpful! Thank you!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Synthetica looks gorgeous in that swatch 😯I’m drawn to it even though I don’t typically like how purples look on me haha. Thanks for the pic! @WinglessOne 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Guessgal  I bet Synthetica would look great on you! It’s a good accent shade, but it also works well across the whole lid as a single wash of sparkly color. I almost always apply it with a finger instead of a wet brush. I like my EYEdols single, but since the 5-pan mini palette is nearly the same price and comes with 4 other shadows, I think the mini palette’s a better value (even though the pans are smaller). I mean, not to enable you or anything but it’s a good shade to have on hand, especially if you have no (or very few) usable-for-you purples. 🙂 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

The shade Smoked Amethyst is really catching my eye. It looks like such a great shade for smoky eyes. <333

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PenelopeBT  Smoked Amethyst creates a very dramatic smoky look, and it’s surprisingly easy to work with: it blends out nicely, without getting muddy or completely losing its purple shimmer. I can’t speak for the EYEdols single (I think it’s available as a single?), but this shade in the 6-pan Metalmorphosis palette is fantastic. 💜

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne Beautiful! Thank you for sharing! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Do you think any of this will be around during the 25% sale? Like the blue cream highlight or any of the lipstick duos?  @veronika23  I feel like I need to complete my Nocturnal Nirvana collection, heehee. But it's breaking the bank 🙂

 

I wonder why the black lipsticks aren't showing on the Opulence page?

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Buootiful  I'm not sure. 😞  I don't shop her site much and haven't paid a lot of attention this year on releases... I think in general things don't sell out as fast as they used to but who knows about this collection...  yeah not sure why the black lipsticks aren't in stock yet. I thought it was releasing at the same time... maybe not. @Buootiful 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thanls @veronika23 If I had not wanted those Pmg exclusive lip duos and the highlighter cream, i would have saved $$ buying both kits.

 

Oh well, $7.00 more to have the nocturnal asap and 4 lipsticks in LE pkging instead of 3 lipsticks in normal pkging. Im not sure if Im going to like Vendetta...

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Buootiful  well you got some nice things... you can save next time around right? 😉  If you don't like the color all that much nothing is stopping you from mixing it with another to give you a different color or just apply a bit with gloss or balm over it to make it more of a wash of color instead of opaque. There's always a way to make it work. 😉

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

As Portlandia would say, "Put  a gloss on it!" 🙂 🙂 🙂 @veronika23
