This was my first ever Pat McGrath product so other than what Iâ€™ve read in reviews I wasnâ€™t sure what the eyeshadows were really like and when I first swatched them on my arm I have to say I was disappointed because they seemed quite chalky and patchy. That was until I used them on my eyes, I have never used such beautiful eyeshadows that blend so effortlessly. Considering how they swatched I didnâ€™t think for one minute they would be any better on the eyes, how wrong was I?! The dark shadows are so easy at blending out and creating a smokey eye with this palette is literally like childâ€™s play. The duochrome shadows are stunning. They do come off very glittery but considering how well this palette performs thatâ€™s a minor detail. Pat McGrath has created a beauty in this palette and I can only imagine how good her other ones are too. How itâ€™s taken me this long to jump on the PM train I donâ€™t know but Iâ€™m hooked. The packaging feels so expensive and luxurious that you can tell itâ€™s high end. The colour theme in this palette is spot on and it really is exciting to experiment with this palette. I just canâ€™t wait for her next collection to arrive. If anyone is still debating whether itâ€™s worth spending that much on a PM palette, trust me itâ€™s worth every penny and more and you can see that within the quality of these shadows. She is probably the only one truly killing it in the makeup game right now. I 1000% recommend this palette.

I bought the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Eyeshadow Palette and I love it. It's a palette full of warm shades of browns, bronzes, coppers and golds that are mostly shimmery but can easily be worn during the day and long into the night and would never clash with any shade of lipstick at all. I recommend this palette for anyone who has warm undertones in their skin but I can see this eyeshadow palette looking suitable on a number of different skin tones either way.Fashion Fair Butterscotch, Black Opal Truly Topaz, Nars Malaga

Incredibly pigmented, too much so. I love a pigmented l/s but I just couldn't get a smooth finish using these. I even tried applying and then blotting off to achieve a stain, which often works with some lipsticks, but even that didn't do much for me. The packaging is really fun and luxe though.

I had high hopes for this, but I was extremely disappointed. I'm NC40-42 and bought Realness and LaBejia, sight unseen (as there's nowhere yet in the UK to test these out in person). I bought them directly from the Pat McGrath website when they had a 20% off promotion. Realness seemed like it could have been the perfect MLBB - medium pink-mauve-brown - but was a lot greyer and cooler on me in person. LaBeija had seemed like a warm yellow-brown medium nude, but was a lot lighter on me than it seemed in pictures of it on the internet, and also slightly cooler. These are very opaque, and I think that means there is less room for error with your choice of colour - it has to match you perfectly. The formula is slightly drying and doesn't meld with your lips - it just sits on top of them. So try and test these out in person before you buy, if you can.The worst part about Realness is that it stains the lips badly and turns darker - I wore it to a job interview, without a lipliner and was shocked when I came back home to discover that it had turned several shades darker, and not really suitable for interview purposes! The packaging is beautiful, and it's not the worst formula ever, so I will use them up by applying them over lipliner only. In my opinion there are far better formulas on the market, such as Rouge d'Armani (although limited MLBB colour choice), MAC Liptensity (although again, limited MLBB colour choice), Hourglass Confession and NARS Audacious. However, as I'm a glutton for punishment and addicted to lipstick, I will probably still buy a MatteTrance lipstick to see if that lives up to the hype.

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 reliable, and by the end of the day I can get a little bit of crumbling along the lower lashline, especially with Black Coffee. However, it's nothing that can't be fixed with a 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) Black Coffee does 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. (Blitz Brown, because it is metallic with specks of glitter, is not as good for my waterline as the matte colors.)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 might 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 the matte shade does not migrate onto my contact lenses is enough to keep me coming back for more Black Coffee.
