Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I just received my palette and once again, it's scratched up! 😞 This is my third try for the palette and they've all been scratched up in the same area. I'm not sure if I'm having just extremely bad luck... this is the 5th damaged Pat McGrath item I've received from Sephora. The first time item I bought was a MatteTrance lipstick with a broken tube that wouldn't bring the lipstick up. I exchanged it for a new one in the same shade and that one had the exact same problem so I returned it and gave up on the lipstick. I've been really wanting this mothership palette but at this point I'm wondering if it's better to just give up and purchase it from elsewhere.

RE: Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I just ordered subversive from Sephora. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully it comes untarnished. I think if you reach out to pat McGrath customer service, they may allow you to swap the palettes. It couldn’t hurt to ask

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I bought this exact palette last year at a store, and when I opened it, the palette had fingerprints on it and one of the shades had a clear fingerprint, probably from being swatched. It was so disappointing to open it up to see that, especially because it was a gift from my bf haha. I returned it for a brand new one.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@wokkin glad customer service is taking cared of you.  I havent had this issue but i have the box torn up ordering both from Sephora and PMG direct before.  I just fixed them up but ya the case can be annoying.

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@blackkitty2014  @wokkin  yes the box I’ve had be loose or torn at the edges and I’ve taped them up too. But the cases, never! 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@mermadelove me too.  I tape the boxes up and fix the strings but i'm still very lucky my cases are always perfect 😉 (so far at least)

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@blackkitty2014  I’ve only had one bad case, luckily. And there was that one time when a quad fell into the toilet bowl. The case protects the product luckily! I sprayed the case down with pure alcohol and let it air dry. Good as new! 😅

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@mermadelove We do what we have to do for our make ups 😘😍 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@wokkin  ?I haven’t had that issue, but I would most certainly call customer service and let them know!!!

 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Thank you so much, I feel better knowing that this is just a bad one! I took your advice and called them and they are shipping a replacement out now, which is nice so I don't have to deal with the refunding process like the first bad palette. I'll be shipping this one back, fingers crossed that the next one isn't scratched up! 

 
 

Re: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@wokkin  I’m glad they took care of things for you!!! Good luck on your replacement!! 

RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Saw this encrusted heart Elson pop up on Selfridges this morning

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

The case is so beautiful! I haven't purchased from Selfridges, but maybe I should. @Mochapj 

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I'm in love with the heart on the lipstick! <333

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@PenelopeBT  Totally with you on that one!!

Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@Mochapj  This is hella gorgeous but there’s no way I’m paying $52 o=plus $30 shipping for. It! LOLOLOL Although both Kelsea Breanna Jae and Morgan Turner mentioned that if you paid $55 for shipping you get shipping for a year from Selfridges and it’s faster to get to you from England than from your local Sephora! LOL Food for thought......

RE: Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@mermadelove yeah, I know. Ive had a subscription for a few years. I buy most of my Japanese cosmetics from Selfridges because the exchange rate is better for the Canadian dollar. For how much it costs I get good value from it, but people who only use it occasionally probably wouldn’t.

Re: RE: Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

Yeah, that’s a good point @Mochapj . But if anyone plans to us even two things from them, it pays for itself! 

Re: RE: Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

I buy any European brands from them as well @mermadelove with the good US$ to £ exchange rate, many items end up being 30%+ less considering I don’t have to pay sales tax on top. Hopefully that will still be true in 2020 when UK is no longer EU. I definitely think I get value out of the yearly shipping. 

Re: RE: Re: RE: THE PAT McGRATH THREAD

@lipstick4soul  that’s pretty awesome!
