RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Soo I thought Sephora wasn’t getting Ritualistic Rose but I see it up now ?? I probably missed someone mentioning it here in the thread.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thank you @shimmerbait! this totally just made my day. I really want this one but wanted to swatch in store. I'm sure I'll have to go to a specific store that carries pmg as most nearby don't.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

The same thing happened last year, the items that were supposed to be exclusive to pmg were only exclusive for a week or two. I had a feeling this would happen, but it's fine. My quad is finally being delivered today

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Oh my goodness I am so excited! I told myself that I would only get it if I could use my last $100 reward, and was super bummed when PMG said it was exclusive to her website. You made my day @shimmerbait  Smiley Very Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I had a feeling this would eventually make it to Sephora. 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@shimmerbait Pat's IG people themselves said it wasn't coming to Sephora, so I was surprised to see it as well.

 

Am mildly annoyed because I ordered it from her site and I hate how long her shipping to Canada takes. Would've much rather ordered from Sephora.

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Oh NOOOOO Smiley Sad

I should have waited. Having said that has anyone got an recs on how to use this quad? wholly glitter fallout batman!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@ChristalM  For the sparkliest PMG shadows, I apply with my finger (dry or damp), a wet brush, or—for tight spaces or lower lash line—a silicone applicator. I do this over a base of grippy primer, either Smashbox 24 Hour or Too Faced Glitter Glue. 

 

Even then, there will be some fallout. I hate baking my undereyes, but I will sometimes coat my cheeks instead with powder before I useone of these shadows, and then knock it off afterward. I have an old Urban Decay Ozone lip primer crayon that’s terrible (for me) at its intended job, but perfect for removing random glitter from my face. 

 

And sometimes I just roll with a light sprinkle of fairy dust on my face. 😂🧚‍♀️ 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I use TF's glitter glue with super sparkly shades like the ABH and PMG glitters @ChristalM and have had no issues Smiley Happy

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@ChristalM i cant stop laughing at your comment "wholly glitter fallout batman!"  That seems liked the theme for recent release for palettes lol.  

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@ I used it this morning ans I swear I got glitter on my forehead at this point!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@ChristalM I just received mine last night so I haven't had a chance to play with it (beyond swatching) but I find those shades that have more particle separation work better when used wet/with a mixing medium.

@shimmerbait, I was just coming to post the same thing! @...

@shimmerbait, I was just coming to post the same thing! @Buootiful

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Ritualistic Rose. The 2 pinks are definitely the most sparkly part of this quad

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Looks like the Selfridges exclusive version of Midnight Sun has some gold embellishments

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

So, after coming home and looking at some of @Mochapj 's suggestions, I had an epiphany. It's probably super obvious but I didn’t notice it until tonight. Decadence is PMG's version of a rainbow palette!  You've got red, orange, yellow/gold, blue, and purple, plus a couple of shades to lighten (the light dirty gold and the silver) and two to darken (the dark blue and the grey). I guess because I'm not an artist and I never really "mix” shadows on my eyes I just hadn't thought of it that way until today. I definitely need to work on this palette some more now. My mind is blown.

RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@makeitup305 it’s funny you should mention that... I had a similar a-ha moment looking at the Midnight Sun palette one day. It’s definitely a (more subdued) rainbow palette with a white, black, grey and neutral for mixing, accents etc

Re: RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Mochapj I hadn't even though of Midnight Sun like that either, you're right! 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@makeitup305  See, that’s why some of us reeeeally want that palette! 😉 Really though, I think you’ll have lots of fun with it once you experiment more with it. You can also try layering any of the Decadence shadows over a shadow from another palette, just to see what shimmery color you can create. You’ll have to post some of what you come up with! 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Welp, Sephora finally removed the Decadence product page very early this morning. I guess that’s that. 

 

I’m sad about missing this palette again. I’m also kinda pissed that Sephora waited til the palette was sold out to halve its price. They advertised 50% off a high-demand product they didn’t even have in stock anymore. 

 

I realize site glitches happen. I spent 20 years in the web/UX design field; I’ve seen (and helped fix) some major site problems for a company larger than Sephora. I know the kind of crap that happens on the backend, be it caused by code, info hierarchy, imagery, copy, or marketing decisions. I wonder which of those caused this Sephora blunder. 

 

Congrats to to everyone who got Decadence. I wish you’d gotten it at the apparently planned half price instead, but at least you have it. For me, this will forever be the one that got away. ☹️
