Pat McGrath Labs is launching in Sephora Singapore and I couldn’t be more excited. The line first launched in 2015, with just three products—Gold 001 a metallic pigment, Skin Fetish 003 a balm, cream and powder highlighter trio that promised to give you hyperreal skin and Lust 004 a lip kit—and expanded in 2017 to a more extensive permanent collection that included eyeliners, mascara, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and lip liners.
I have often looked lustily at highlighters from the Skin Fetish range (the OG Skin Fetish 003 sold out in minutes, but not before crashing the site), drooled over the vibrant colours of the Mothership Palettes (the name is inspired by her industry nickname “Mother”) and wanted to add Mattetrance shades to my collection of lipsticks. And the packaging that all these come in is stuff of beauty dreams.
If some of you are wondering why I am losing my s*** about this launch, here’s why: Pat McGrath is the stuff legends are made of. For over 20 years, the self-taught makeup artist has keyed (or conceptualised the entire makeup look) for brands like Dior, Prada and Versace, Louis Vuitton, Yohji Yamamoto and Victoria Beckham to name a few, coming up with iconic looks for their runway shows. She has also helped create makeup for brands like Giorgio Armani, Max Factor, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, and has worked with top celebrities. Here’s something else that will make you envious: She reportedly has 4,000 square feet of storage filled with makeup. This speaks to the beauty junkie in me, so the joy to swatch, have and hold a product that has been created by her is unparalleled.
The beauty of her products is that each one can be used by both beauty industry insiders and beginners alike, and are created to work on all skin tones. You can get your hands on Pat McGrath Labs products (and 3x the Sephora points when you enter a promo code) when you shop them on Sephora.sg on December 6, 2018.
