Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

These are gorgeous, but I was hoping those greenish looking shades in the pan would be more green in the swatches, personally. Very excited about the price!! Thanks for posting, @ChristalM 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@haleyvvvv in all honesty though, I find her promo swatches HORRIBLE. They are overly filter/edited or something but to me, they are so very different. I like waiting for real swatches.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@ChristalM  I suspect her swatches are often done with a mixing medium to amp up the pigmentation. Eh, I could be wrong about that. But also, her video swatches are always in dramatic lighting over sequins, which can throw off the swatch colors. And I never trust her lipstick promo photos or swatches. 😂 Though by now, I know how her lipstick shades look in person compared to her product photos, so I can mentally adjust her photos for true color when I look at them. 

 

Anyway... like you, I prefer seeing other people's finger or brush swatches of her shadows. I like to compare them to her own swatches to see how different they are. I do still find her video swatches helpful, though I have to mentally adjust the lighting. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I didnt see this.  I didnt see this. I didnt see this.  Will the lie stopping me from hoarding it?  Thx for posting @ChristalM

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I am very surprised at the price, thought it would be way more. Definitely going to need to see some reviews on the quality though 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I am surprised at the price too. @WinglessOne said that the pans were smaller and the packaging is cardboard. If I didn’t already have the 2 Star Wars 6-pan palettes, I would pick it up but the 6 new shades just don’t appeal to be as much. I wonder if it is like her mini 6-pan palette that came out a few years ago as part of a kit. Those were tiny but they were a good introduction to her brand.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sydtomato I love that they're doing this palette at $78.  Honestly, I have never finished a palette.  Nobody needs that much make up!  I love that she's making this more affordable for everyone.  As much as I love her mothership palettes, (I have 5) they're super heavy, and there's no chance I'm ever going to hit pan on one of them.  I think make up is more fun when it's more accessible to more people.  For example, when Modern Renaissance came out, everyone bought it and everyone posted tutorials on it.  With the mothership palettes, I feel like not as many people buy them and there aren't as many tutorials posted for them.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Oh I 100% agree. I want a mothership palette badly but can’t bring myself to splurge on it but I have one of her 6 pans that I got on sale. If size of the pans is the only difference I am all for it. I only question quality because her other palettes are so insanely expensive more much less shades and then she is launching a big palette like this for almost half the price of her motherships. I hope she starts taking the Natasha Denona route of focusing on the smaller and more affordable palettes while keeping quality as well! @itscarin 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@sydtomato  I expect this palette’s shadows to be the same quality as those in her MTHRSHP 6-pans. Her little 5-pan Eye Ecstasy palettes are also cheap and very good quality, after all. It’d be a shame if Corruption and Smoked Amethyst in this new palette didn’t perform as well as they do in their original release palettes (MTHRSHPs Bronze Temptation and Metalmorphosis). 

I’m very happy about the price! I hope she’s  overproduced these palettes, because they’ll probably go OOS very fast.

More holiday items

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Mochapj This is fantastic.  Loving the holiday collection.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Mochapj  Square bullets? Mini lip pencils (FINALLY)? Balm pots? What is going on?! 😂  When she teased in her masterclass “you won’t believe what else is coming,” she wasn’t kidding. Keeping my eyes peeled for those seemingly sparkly rainbow-cased bullets... new BlitzTrances? If they’re existing shades, I can talk myself out of them. But if they’re not... I’m gonna need more lipstick storage. 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@WinglessOne I saw the square bullet minis and thought dang it I was only going to buy the palette and lip balm in the round container and then the square bullet pic came out.  I feel like this year for the holidays Mother is killing it.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@SportyGirly125 Right? I especially appreciate that everything will be priced $25 - $76 USD, so more people can afford a little PMG in our current economic situation. I mean the full sized lipsticks will probably still be the usual price, but I'm glad to see more mini sets.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Based on the temptlia the mega mothership will contain 12 shadows from the Star Wars palettes

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@KNC24 Great!  Thanks for the info. Looking forward to this

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Oooh, good to know, thanks, @KNC24!!

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I thought a lot of those colors looked familir. The Star Wars palettes were the special edition Decadence palette and the 6-pan Galactic Gold and Dark Galaxy palettes. This leads me to believe that the 12 repromotes are all of the eyeshadows from the two 6-pan palettes because Decadence is pretty much readily available now so there is no need to repromote those shadows. Sucks because I have the two 6-pan Star Wars palettes so this new palette most likely has only 6 new eyeshadow colors for me. This may not be a good buy for those of us who have those 2 palettes because it will probably be over $200 and that’s too much if we already have most of the colors.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Personally I think that PMG should re-release the two Star Wars 6-pan palettes in new packaging and then made the 18-pan Celestial Divinity palette all or mostly new shades. It’s just bad business to release an 18-pan limited edition palette that is 2/3 older shadows.
