I've bought two of these, one in the color Black Coffee, a brown/black, and Blitz Brown, a dark metallic brown. These pencils stay all day when I tightline with them. On the waterline they are a bit less tenacious, and by the end of the day I get a little bit of crumbling along the lower lashline, especially with Black Coffee. But it's nothing that can't be fixed with a damp Q-Tip. I am happy I bought them both.PROS:1) Comes in several colors in addition to an intense black.2) When I tightline with these, the liner stays all day. On the waterline (bottom lid), it doesn't last quite as long but that might be because I wear contacts and my eyes water more than the average person's.3) These gel pencils do not blur my vision by migrating onto my contact lenses during the day. This is a problem I've had with Trish McEvoy's gel pencil.4) I like the packaging. The pencil comes with a sharpener, and the box has two compartments, one for the pencil and one for the sharpener. When I take this liner on a trip, I take the box. This makes it easier to find and keeps the sharpener close by.CONS:1) I notice some crumbling along the lower lashline at the end of the day. However, I apply the pencil in the morning and this doesn't happen until around six o'clock, so I'm getting at least nine hours of good wear in the heat of summer. If you don't have watery eyes and you're not a contact lens wearer, the liner will probably last longer on you. (The tightlining stays intact beautifully for me.) 2) I've noticed some very mild smudging along the lower lashline, but no worse than any other eye pencil I have tried. 3) It's not cheap. $25 per pencil. 4) The sharpener doesn't have a lid to keep the shavings from spilling out, but at least they give you one each time you buy a pencil. Some brands don't.MY VERDICT:Overall, I like this eyeliner enough to buy it again. Because I wear contact lenses, finding a good eye pencil is not an easy task for me. MAC Liquidlast is the only truly waterproof eyeliner I've found (Milani Infinite Liquid is a dupe). Inglot's gel liner in 77 Black is the only other liner I trusted for tightlining until I found this pencil from Pat McGrath. Just the fact that it doesn't migrate onto my contact lenses is enough to keep me coming back for more colors.

This is a five-star product through and through. I love the fact that Pat took all of her bestselling highlighters and placed them into one trio-palette, which is so convenient to use. At first I was afraid that both pink and gold here would look OTT on my light-neutral complexion, leaving bold streaks of colour. However, I was so wrong! In reality these are the smoothest, most blendable highlighters on the market. They almost melt into your skin, which is not a surprise considering cream, fluid and powder were mixed to create this unique formula. I own a ton of high-end highlighters, nothing even remotely similar. While gold here can look a bit yellowish on me, whenever I mix it with pink I get the most perfect peachy highlighter you can ever imagine. These two shades have a holo feel to them, while bronze is perfect as an eyeshadow or bronzer topper. It is a perfect highlighter for beauties of a deeper complexion as well, so I have to respect the brand for creating a product that is universally flattering. Palette is fragile, so be careful. I have unedited swatches, application tips and makeup look in a separate review here for those of you interested (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/07/17/SKIN-FETISH-Collection-by-Pat-McGrath-LABS-Review) other than that I am really enjoying my palette and would totally recommend it!

I have heard great things about PMG highlighters; I believe this product has been around a few years back as a limited edition release, so I was very happy to finally play with an updated version this summer. I got the shade Bronze, which would look great on beauties with a deeper skin tone. Gold is great for medium complexion, while Nude would be an ideal shade for might light-neutral skin tone. Too bad it is sold out right now, otherwise I would buy it in a heartbeat. The star product here is the balm - it is a clear, non-sticky yet very glossy formula that can be used mixed with highlighters or on its own (eyes, face, lips). It smells like a MAC lipstick and is a dreamy mixing medium. You can be as creative with it as you want! Highlighter is perfect as it is quite wearable and perfect for an subtle everyday glow. Very compact, very luxe!

All in all, great launch from the brand!

This palette is for any makeup lovers who want to try out Pat Mcgrath eyeshadows, but don't want to drop $125 for the large palette. Simply put, the formula is like next level. Pigmented and smooth, the shimmers in this palette will not disappoint. They are also super blendable and easy to use. I would say Bronze Ambition is the perfect palette for my neutral girls or makeup newbies who want something high end. The shades selection in this palette make application almost intuitive.If I lost this palette or ran out, I would not hesitate to pick up another one. I have some swatches on my blog here:http://www.treceefabulous.com/2018/07/pat-mcgrath-labs-mthrshp-sublime-bronze.html

THE best 55 dollars I have spent on eyeshadow palette! Honestly speaking, if Pat's bigger palettes were not this expensive, I would get them all. But MTHRSHP palettes (smaller ones) are just as divine!You get 6 regular eyeshadow pans (instead of 10 - original Mothership palettes) but the colour combination is so perfect, you can create a ton of looks with just these 6 shadows alone. I have two palettes from the range, Subversive La Vie En Rose is certainly the most memorable/colourful one. I honestly bought it because I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try some fun pinks and plums and purples for a change. Boy, I was not disappointed! Gold shade here is like MAC's Woodwinked but on steroids! As you blend it out, it almost looks like you have two shadows on the eye (gold and warm transition shade), but it is only one colour! So easy, so fast. Purple shade here too - is brilliant and lasts for hours without fading (I use Paint Pot as a base). If you want a true, high-end eyeshadow palette that is worth every penny - look this way. Just pick a colour theme you like and trust me, you will thank me later!I have unedited hand swatches and makeup looks created with this palette in a separate review here, for those of you interested in purchasing these little guys (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/06/16/MTHRSHP-Eye-Palettes-by-Pat-McGrath-LABS-Review).
