Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

That Black Eye Gloss was part of the 002 release.  She released the pieces 002 separately on her website a few weeks ago -- which is what that packaging is.  

 

I went to the event on Tuesday, and I asked her about future releases.  She has a lot more in store for us, but it will be gradual. Smiley Wink

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@SuzeAlex I know it was previously released on her site 🙂  I just meant if people were given this at a Sephora event does that mean she will bring it back again (3rd time) and this time it will be sold via Sephora.

 

Good to know. Thanks!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I wish I knew.  I kind of hope not since I already have it, and I want more new things from her. Can't get enough.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Possible dupe alert: I finally opened my Nude set and the pigment looks a whole lot like Monster from Colourpop.  I will try to get a photo that reflects the similarities but I get the feeling it will be tough to capture. They have a similar pink iridescence.  I would say the PM has a bit more red in it and is somehow more metallic and sheer.  

 

*Note: this is just from hand swatching.  Not sure how they compare on da face.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I think someone did a comparison swatch of those a couple pages back

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

That was me! They are similar but Monster has a white base where Nude has a transparent base.  Also Monster is a bit thicker, and Nude is a bit more purpley and a LOT more reflective.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Oh I totally missed it @Sabrinas, sorry!  I agree with everything you said lol!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Does anyone know what time these will be dropping tomorrow? I'm so ready to **bleep** up the nude one so I can use it for my wedding next week 😄

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Nerisai it's live NOW!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@NerisaiLOLLL when I used that s word, mine also got bleeped... Who even uses it for any term other than "grab"?!?! Lmao!  No idea about what time tomorrow, but I will check right when I wake up (aka around 6:45am EST) and if it's not up, then I'll religiously stalk the website starting at 8am EST, aka when I start work.  Lucky me, I work on a computer from 8-5! Haha.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

okay so... "sna tch" is bleeped......

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I found the directions! There were some very "do you boo" directions on the back, but there is also a small folded paper with instructions.  It was buried in the sequins (random question, I'm I the only one who wants to save and reuse the sequins if only because of how expensive everything was?)

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

ALIENGELIC GLEAM OF OTHERWORDLY OPULENCE. That is what I want.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Annaihk - I still have my bag of sequins from Gold001.  I have no idea why or what I'm going to do with them, and I curse every time I accidentally jostle them and knock it over, but I can't throw it out 😄

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@Mochapj  I'm glad I'm not the only one :).  I see some very interesting DIYs in our future.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Helpful notes for everyone:

 

1. Does accept paypal.

 

2. The link in the email took me to a page where I had to enter the code (no other information on page). I got stuck here - wouldn't let me past.

 

I got around it by:

- New Tab (google) Pat McGrath.

- From her site's homepage use the dropdown on the top left to select skin fetish

- This took me to the product page. (Above the "Application" and "description" tabs is a box "ENTER CODE" which you need to do to add them to the cart.)

 

good luck!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

I found I was able to use the link to get the stuff in my cart, but I could only get back to the page by navigating from main site, then saw one of the things I'd added actually added so I checked out!

 

This has been extremely frustrating.

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

It doesn't help that I hate her site to begin with. It's not easily navigable. And then when people are doing launches or releases and don't anticipate concentrated, high traffic and they haven't built up the site infrastructure to handle that.. sigh. I get really frustrated by it all.

 

I'm glad you were able to get the one!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

OMG what a train wreck. I finally got the order in and then it said the back end server was at capacity.

It finally took the order and now I'm late for my apt at work.

Doesn't everyone know we need makeup!!!

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

Assuming launch goes as planned tomorrow, I have to say that others could take a lesson from how they are managing the launch. I signed up for "early access" and the messaging was timely and clear with excellent expectation setting of how much would be available. 

 

I am sure that there will be complaints from people that cant or won't read/understand the messaging or dont understand a niche/high end product but it refreshing to see a ton of buzz, great marketing and also clear expectation setting. 

Re: PAT McGRATH LABS

@lipstick4soul having participated in the previous releases, I can wholeheartedly agree that they have way better communication and procedures in place than most other 'indie' brands I've seen.

 

I am actually shuddering to think how the launch of this is going to roll out on Sephora...
