Pat McGrath Huetopian Dream Collection

August 26, 2021

Pat McGrath Mothership IX Huetopian Dream Palette

Pat McGrath launched her new Huetopian Dream Collection and the new palette is absolutely stunning. All the items are available now online at Pat McGrath Labs and Sephora.

Mothership IX Eyeshadow Palette Huetopian Dream

Pat McGrath Mothership IX Huetopian Dream Palette

Mothership IX Eyeshadow Palette Huetopian Dream ($125) is probably my favorite palette launch to date from Pat McGrath and if you don’t mind wearing glitter sparkle toppers I think you’ll love it too. It has a mix of smooth shimmers, mattes, duo chrome shimmers, intense shimmers and sparkle glitter toppers.

The shimmers and mattes apply smoothly on the skin while the sparkle toppers are more chunky with the glitter flecks. Colors include:

  • Skinshow Nude Xtasy – cool toned champagne shimmer
  • Secret Eden – soft plum pink matte
  • Bronze Desire – sparkling bronze
  • Bronze Solaris 005 – glittery golden yellow
  • Astral Venusian Orchid – white gold glitter
  • Xtreme Plum Noir – deep matte plum brown
  • Cosmic Bloom – complex rose pink sparkle shimmer
  • Shockwave – matte coral pink
  • Blitz Sextreme – duochrome bronze purple silver shimmer
  • Astral Amethyst Moon – sparkly lilac purple

IntensifEYES Artistry Wand

Pat McGrath IntensifEYES Artistry Wand

Another new launch is the IntensifEYES Artistry Wand ($32) also available in a Duo Set ($52). This is a multi-purpose product which is quite interesting and I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it. You can apply it to the lids to prime for eyeshadow (in particular the glitters or sparkles to make them adhere better). Or you can also apply on top of shadow and it transforms it into an almost liquid formula. I think it’s quite unique but for me not essential as it’s an extra step I don’t think is necessary.

FetishEYES Mascara

Pat McGrath FetishEYES Mascara

For the eyes the FetishEYES Mascara ($30) has been a repromoted which I think is a good basic everyday mascara, but I actually prefer the Dark Star Mascara formula for better volume and length.

I did a look on my Instagram Reels wearing the palette, also wearing:

  • Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation in LM14 (review here)
  • Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer in LM 13 (review + swatches here)
  • Pat McGrath Huetopian Dream Eyeshadow Palette
  • Victoria Beckham Eyeliner in Cocoa
  • Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Divine Blush in Divine Rose
  • Pat McGrath Lip Fetish Divinyl in Divine Rose 2 (review here)
  • Pat McGrath LUST Gloss in Aphrodisiac (swatches here)

 

I think the colors in the palette are gorgeous. The texture, pigment and lasting power are all excellent. There is some fall out with the glitters when I apply but once product is on the lids (I pat on with fingers) they pretty much stay put. As much as I love it though I wonder how many of you are glitter/sparkle wearers. I think she does such a great job on her palettes for that extra glam vibe – I wonder if she will ever launch an all matte palette or one without glitters.

I have heard that some think this one is similar to other palettes. Based on what I have Huetopian Dream seems different enough to me to justify owning, although I do not have the Mothership VIII Divine Rose II which looks like it could be similar in some of the tones. In case you want to see swatches of other palettes/quads I’ve reviewed, I’ve linked them below:

Pat McGrath Divine Blush Collection Review

May 24, 2021

Pat McGrath Divine Blush Collection Review

Pat McGrath just launched her new Divine Blush Collection featuring nine powder blushes, a new highlighter, a new eyeshadow quad and new lip colors. I received a press kit with a selection of items from the new launch including 3 of the blushes. I loved the formula and colors so much I ordered the remaining colors and will review them when they arrive.

Everything is available online at Pat McGrath.

In today’s look:

Eyeshadow Quad

Pat McGrath Venus in Fleurs Luxe Quad in Voyeruistic Vixen

Her new Venus in Fleurs Luxe Quad in Voyeruistic Vixen has four shades with a smooth metallic shimmery pale cool-toned pink champagne, a glittery duo-chrome pink orange copper with chunky flecks of sparkle, a matte reddish plum brown and a beautiful metallic bronze taupe with a soft golden sheen. Colors shift depending on how the light catches the shimmers.

Colors each have a different kind of texture but pigment is smooth, easy to blend and layer. I do think the glittery shade is best applied as a topper in a patting motion with fingers to avoid fallout. The glittery color is very sparkly and glittery.

I think the quad is beautiful. As a non-glitter wearer I almost wish the sparkle shade was a duochrome shimmer, but I really love the other colors in the palette and I do think that sparkle is fun to add more glitz and glam to the eyes.

Skin Fetish Blush + Highlighters

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Divine Powder Blush in Nude Venus, Cherish, Nymphette

There are 9 new Skin Fetish Divine Powder Blushes. These come in a single mirrored compact with a gorgeous embossed pattern. There are two finishes in a demi-matte and a satin with soft shimmer, but on my skin they all apply with the same kind of soft finish. They have a silky kind of powdery feel on the skin and blend out nicely. I haven’t done extensive testing on all of the colors on the face as I just received them, but the two I tested did last for hours on the skin without fading, darkening or oxidizing.

Nude Venus is my favorite so far which is a soft peach. Nymphette is a lighter pink with a soft pink pearl. Cherish is a perfect pink. I think the colors are perfect wearable shades that I want to wear everyday. These have a soft texture and pigment is semi-sheer for the 2 lighter shades Nude Venus and Nymphette (but buildable). Pigment in Cherish and I suspect the deeper shades is richer and a bit more opaque.

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Divine Glow Highlighter in Golden Nectar

She added a new Skin Fetish Divine Glow Highlighter in Golden Nectar which surprised me. In the compact it looks like your standard pale gold shimmer. On the skin it reveals a more peachy glow which you can see in the compact when you hold it at an angle. This one is truly beautiful! It’s quite shimmery but has a smooth finish and does not emphasize pores. Pigment is very strong but this one is easy to blend out.

New Lip Colors

Pat McGrath MatteTrance DreamLover, Skin Fetish Lip Balm in Flesh7, Divine Rose2

I’m the biggest fan of the Pat McGrath MatteTrance Lipsticks and I love her new Dream Lover. This is my perfect peachy nude pink color. It has a similar vibe to Christy and Divine Rose but the undertone is a bit different. Unfortunately hand swatches make them all look the same but the other two are a bit more pink while the new one is more peachy. Coverage is opaque, smooth, flawless and matte without looking dry.

For her Lip Fetish Balms she launched two new shades in Divine Rose 2 a soft neutral cool rose pink and Flesh 7 a plum brown that pulls more red/plum on me (because almost all brown tones with any hint of plum pull red on my lips). Both have really good pigment for a balm. These are effortless to apply and I love the colors. There is a soft vanilla like scent but it’s subtle. Since they are balms they won’t have extremely long lasting power. I’d say they last longer than the YSL Rouge Volupte Shines and about the same as Chanel Rouge Coco Blooms.

Last I added a swatch of her LUST Gloss in Earth Angel. It’s a repromoted and it has the prettiest color shift when you see it in person. Photos can’t do it justice but I added a swatch anyways.

Looks Wearing the new collection, my foundation shade right now is the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish in Medium 15. Eyeshadow palette is the Voyeuristic Vixen in all the looks.

Overall love everything! I don’t know that I could pick a favorite because I think they are all stand outs. Even though I have so many lip colors I always look forward to her lip launches and the colors in this new collection are gorgeous.

I have high hopes for the other blush colors and will keep you posted when they arrive! Everything is available now at Pat McGrath. I love that she has bundles available at a price break if you buy her sets. The collection should also arrive at Sephora end of the month.

Did you order anything from her launch yet? What did you get?

Pat McGrath Labs LiquiLUST Review

March 24, 2021

Pat McGrath LiquiLUST Legendary Matte Lipstick

I have a look at some new liquid lipstick colors today with swatches of the Pat McGrath Labs LiquiLUST Legendary Wear Matte Lipsticks. She launched 2 shades in Divine Nude and Divine Rose earlier this year (review + swatches here) and just added 6 more colors to the formula lineup. Available online at Pat McGrath and Sephora.

These are long-wear liquid lipsticks with a matte finish. Once they dry they have a matte budge-proof finish. They stayed put on the lips. Being a matte finish they do have that dry matte lip look but they did not feel drying on the lips. I like the color range and if you’re looking for a matte liquid lip I think these are worth checking out! I am not the biggest fan of matte lips since I’m more of a glossy lipstick person. I prefer the look of her MatteRevolution Lipsticks on my lips but those aren’t transfer or budge proof like these LiquiLUST.

All the colors applied smoothly with full coverage. Since I have a darker lip than the lightest shade I did have to swipe a few times to get an even layer. These come with a pointed sponge tip applicator.

Pat McGrath LiquiLUST Liquid Lipstick

Pat McGrath LiquiLUST Legendary Matte Lipstick

New colors include:

  • Nude Cabaret – soft peachy pink nude
  • Spellbound – warm brown
  • Wild Orchid – purple plum orchid
  • Pink Desire – bold warm pink
  • Elson 4 – perfect bold red
  • Flesh 3 – deeper red brown

Bottom line a solid formula, beautiful colors and long lasting power.

Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection

Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection Review

I finally have a look at the new Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection today! You can find all the products available online at Pat McGrath Labs and Sephora. In today’s review, a look + swatches of:

Divine Rose Lip Colors

Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection Lipsticks Review

Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection Lipsticks Review

There are two repromoted lip pencils in PermaGel Lip Pencil in Buff (warm nude) and Suburbia (medium rose). These are long-wear lip pencils with rich coverage and I’m a huge fan of the color selection and formula! I think both Buff and Suburbia are wearable colors for a wide range of skin tones.

A few others I own and swatched from a while back reposted below. I wear Done Undone and Structure the most.

Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil swatches

In this collection there is a new shade of lipstick in the Matte Revolution formula called Divine Rose which is a warm rose pink. It’s similar to Christy but Divine Rose is slightly more pink in tone. The Matte Revolution Lipstick formula is one of my favorites – it’s a luminous smooth full coverage matte I find unmatched in any other formula I’ve tried. Texture is smooth and comfortable without drying the lips. It’s not budge proof but it does have excellent lasting power. Comparison swatches below. Some shades look similar to Divine Rose. The subtle differences I see: Sextrology is lighter, Christy is slightly warmer/deeper, 1995 is cooler, Omi is 2-3 shades darker and more cool-toned:

Pat McGrath Labs Pink Nude Lipstick swatches

There are two liquid lipsticks in the LiquiLUST Legendary Wear Liquid Lipstick formula. This formula has been launched in a few kits in previous years. I cannot recall if both shades were available before. Divine Nude is a cool-toned rose nude and Divine Rose is a cool toned medium rose. I feel these would be more flattering on either lighter skin or darker skin. I’m right in the middle and my olive complexion doesn’t work the best with these shades, but the formula is excellent in lasting power and coverage.

Eyeshadow Quad

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Luxe Quad in Eternal Eden

The new Divine Rose Luxe Quad in Eternal Eden has the prettiest mix of pearl pink rose gold, bright pink (which I can wear as a blush), matte cocoa and sparkling purple. It’s definitely more trendy than I am used to but I think it’s a really pretty one. Out of all the Pat McGrath Labs palettes though I still think the best one is Mothership VII Divine Rose (swatches + review in this post here).

  • Pink Mystique
  • Temptation
  • Earthly Delight
  • Forbidden Fruit

Highlighter

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter

Last we have a look at the Divine Rose Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter which is simply stunning. It has an ultra smooth texture that melts into the skin. It’s like a hybrid powder gel. The color is a gorgeous champagne gold with flashes of pink and rose. It is fairly metallic but if you blend with a brush it’s not too shimmery or frosty. I think it’s hard for me to be truly impressed with a highlighter these days but this one is truly beautiful. I can’t remember the last time I bought a backup of a makeup item. I usually only do that with skincare or hair care I run through frequently. I am really considering a backup of this one. I would love it if she made more colors in the same packaging style and formula.

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter swatch

Overall everything performs true to Pat McGrath standards with excellent pigment, lasting power, textures and colors. The stand outs for me are the new Divine Rose Matte Revolution and Skin Fetish Ultra Glow Highlighter. I do love the lip pencils but already own them – if you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend giving them a look!

That wraps up my review of the new Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Collection – hope you found these helpful! You can find the products available at Pat McGrath Labs and Sephora.

Pat McGrath Rose Decadence MTHRSHP Palette + Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines

August 25, 2020

Pat McGrath Labs Rose Decadence Collection Review

I’m back with a look at the new Pat McGrath Rose Decadence Collection today! Pat McGrath Labs launched new items for eyes and lips. I have a full review featuring the MTHRSHP Eye Palette in Rose Decadence, Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines + a three of the new Permagel Ultra Lip Pencils. You can find the entire collection along with some bundle value sets online at Pat McGrath.

MTHRSHP Eye Palette in Rose Decadence

Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Rose Decadence Eyeshadow Palette

The MTHRSHP Eye Palette in Rose Decadence ($65 for 6 shades) features a mix of mattes, satins and shimmers in warm rosey tone colors. I think the formula for each color is true to her quality standards for most of her palettes. Each color performed well with smooth application and easy to blend textures. Colors do pull very pink/plum which may not be the easiest to pull off for everyone. I think they’re really lovely for a glam rosy look, but color-wise I think her Mothership Divine Rose is easier to wear for everyday as it pulls a lot more neutral.

Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Rose Decadence Eyeshadow Palette

Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Rose Decadence Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Rose Decadence Palette Swatches

Colors include:

  • Pink Champagne is a shimmery pink with a white/gold sheen, on my skin (love this one!)
  • Peach Dusk is a warm satin peachy pink (pulls more coral in real life than the swatch shows)
  • Fuchsia Flame is a shimmery plum pink pearl mix
  • Hedonistic Rose is a matte plum (applies better on eyes than it swatches on hand)
  • Scandalous is a shimmery orange copper
  • Golden Honey is a metallic sparkling gold

__________

Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines

Pat McGrath Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shine

Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines ($36 each) are a new formula of ultra pigmented lip shine lipsticks. They have more pigment than her Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balms (which have also been repackaged). The Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines are creamy high-shine comfortable feeling lipsticks. Pigment shows up better on the lips than on a hand swatch. Lasting power is average for a lipstick – they stay put on the lips and fade nicely like a balm. I think all the colors are ultra flattering for a classic bold lip look. Easy to wear year round regardless of season or occasion.

Permagel Ultra Lip Pencils

Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil

Last but not least are a few new lip pencils. There are 10 new shades of the Permagel Ultra Lip Pencils ($28 each). I like these for an opaque lip pencil that stays put without budging once it sets. I ordered three of the new ones and swatched them next to the other Pat McGrath neutrals I own. New colors above include Half Naked (pale neutral dusty pink), Star Struck (medium rose pink) and Structure (neutral medium brown).

Pat McGrath Labs Rose Decadence Collection Review

Overall a solid collection of new launches. The Lip Fetish Divinyl Lip Shines are super nice if you’re looking for a comfortable high pigment shine lipstick. I cannot pick a favorite although I do really like the look of Boudoir Rose and Belle Amour the most. The new Rose Decadence eyeshadow palette won’t be for everyone as I know rose tones for eyes aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. I do think the quality and pigment is excellent – lasting power, texture and ease of blending is top notch. I haven’t had a chance to play with the lip pencils yet, but Structure seems to be the perfect brown I’ve been looking for. I do love the other lip pencils I have from her line and the new shades are the same quality-wise.

You can find the new Pat McGrath launches available now online at Pat McGrath. Some have popped up at Sephora as well. If you’re shopping multiple colors I highly recommend you check out the bundles at Pat McGrath – she offers a nice price break on her sets!

Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose

March 19, 2020

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow

The Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette ($125) has returned and I am so excited to share my review and swatches today. This originally launched last year in limited quantities. It’s made a few restock appearances and has always sold out online. I managed to order this during one of the previous restocks and could not be more thrilled. I really hope they will consider making this permanent! It’s available online at Pat McGrath. UPDATE: Also now available at Sephora as of April 17th!

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow

The Mothership VII Divine Rose Palette has a mix of mattes, shimmers, iridescent shades and one glitter. The pigment is excellent on all the colors with an easy to blend formula. The looks are endless with this one and I think it has a great combination of neutrals, rose tones and more edgy shimmers.

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette

Colors include a mix of mainly new colors with three relaunch colors. Skinshow Nude is also in the Mothership Subliminal Palette, Rose Dusk is also in the Mothership Sublime, Astral Solstice is also in the Mothership Midnight Sun.

  • Skinshow Nude is a soft shimmery champagne
  • Velouria is a matte dusty mauve (pulls darker on the skin than what I see in the pan)
  • Sable Bronze is a shimmery bronze (love this one)
  • Refined Gold 002 is an iridescent gold
  • Iridescent Pink 003 is a duo-chrome white pink that flashes a bit of lavender and cooler tone pink
  • Xtreme Mahogany is a matte rich warm brown
  • Love Lace is a shimmery taupe with silver flecks
  • Rose Dusk is a shimmery soft muted rose plum
  • VR Rose Venus is a duo-chrome orange pink with gold shimmer, the mix makes it look more peachy on my skin rather than orange
  • Astral Solstice is a chunky ivory glitter that has a super wet look effect

Divine Rose Palette

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette

Lasting power was excellent for me with the combinations I tried. There was some fallout with application as some of the shadows are super soft but it was easy to clean up afterwards. Once on the eyes they stayed put and lasted all day for me. The only color I wasn’t too crazy about is the Astral Solstice because it’s a glitter. Application is ok if applied in a patting motion on the eyes, with a brush the sparkles ended up all over my face.

Overall though I give this palette a solid A for colors, quality and texture. Definitely worth the splurge for me! I think the rose tones are very wearable and have enough of a muted/neutral undertone that it doesn’t give me a pink-eye look. I keep staring at the rose pink box though thinking how awesome it would be to have the colors on the box in gloss, lipstick or blush shades!

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer System

March 13, 2020

Pat Mcgrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer Review

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all well and safe. I chatted with some loved ones yesterday and my heart goes out to everyone during this time. Some have been impacted by having to work from home while others are still going into the office with everything continuing as usual. We are ok here in Florida so far and I truly hope everyone stays safe. We had planned some travel overseas in April, but as soon as news broke of the virus spreading we cancelled them.

So many of you have e-mailed me over the years telling me this blog has been a good distraction from things going on in their life. I hope during this time it will continue to be a helpful resource for all things beauty-related! I have a new product review to share today – Pat McGrath launched her Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer System and in today’s post I’m covering a review on three products:

Pat McGrath Labs Concealer

Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer

Pat Mcgrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer LM14

The Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer is one of the best concealers I’ve tried. It’s creamy, easy to blend, opaque, dries down perfectly without looking or feeling dry. As popular as the opaque matte concealers are among beauty lovers, I need something with a bit of creaminess so it doesn’t cake/dry/crack under my eye. This one from Pat McGrath is like the NARS Creamy Concealer in the sense that it’s very easy to blend and use for highlighting. The main difference is that the Pat McGrath has a lot more coverage and is slightly less dewy/creamy in finish.

I was sent a selection of colors in a press kit but ended up purchasing 4 additional shades to try out. I featured the concealer in LM13 in my February Favorites and also found LM12 to be excellent for under eye brightening.

My foundation match right now is Light Medium 14 as my winter/early spring color. Medium 15 is my most-of-the-year match when I have a tan. You can read the Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation review with swatches here.

Since I am normally darker in skin tone with the sun I went to my local store to swatch and purchase LM14 and M15. LM14 in the concealer and foundation are exact matches. For under eye I prefer something slightly lighter so I still think LM12 and LM13 are best for my needs.

You can see LM13 in my previous post here, but in this post I’m featuring LM14 which is still a really good for under eye and spot concealing.

Swatch comparisons to Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Concealers in 2N, 3N and 3W I wear along with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer shades I rotate between Macadamia, Ginger and Praline:

Concealer Swatches Laura Mercier, NARS and Pat McGrath

Sublime Perfection Concealer Brush

Pat McGrath Labs Concealer Brush

There is a small blending brush called the Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer Brush. It has synthetic material and is angled to blend and blur product. Since it’s very dense and on the small side it’s best for precision blending like right under the eye line or in creases between the nose. I found using my fingers or a sponge easier to cover bigger areas on the face. I think it’s well made and performs well, but don’t find it essential.

Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Blurring Under Eye Powder

Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Blurring Under Eye Powder

I always set my foundation and concealer with a pressed or loose powder. I’ve tried a number of under eye setting powders and usually find them too powdery or dry for my under eye. The Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Blurring Under Eye Powder from Pat McGrath has changed the game for me, it’s perfect! It’s a finely milled pressed domed powder with a very soft texture. I can use either the Light or Medium for setting and I think the three colors will cover a wide range of skin tones. It has an ultra sheer finish, so no color is added for me. It works to set and hold the concealer under the eye so it doesn’t move. Blurring effect is noticeable but moderate for me.

If you’re looking for a good setting powder for under the eye this is an excellent option. I am minimalist when it comes to my base though so I could probably skip and just use my regular setting powders.

Pat McGrath Labs Concealer System

Full look wearing:

 

Pat McGrath Labs Concealer LM14, LUST Gloss Dare to Bare, BlitzTrance Skinsane

Overall an excellent concealer system complete with everything you need to conceal + set! I think it’s a great versatile formula for both under eye, highlighting and spot concealing. These are very opaque but formula is easy to blend with long lasting power. I give it a solid A+.

You can find the Pat McGrath Concealer System available now at Pat McGrath and Sephora.
