Lip kits seem to be all the rage now, but it’s the Pac McGrath Labs Lust 004 lip kits you are going to get totally obsessed with! Announced on Thursday and set to become available at Pac McGrath’s website on August 30 and at Sephora.com and select Sephora stores later on September 8, 2016, the exclusive lip kits come in three color options – Vermillion Venom, Bloodwine and Flesh, and feature five pieces each that will also be sold separately.
As we caught the glimpse of Bella Hadid’s sparkling lips at the Atelier Versace Couture fall 2016 show, we were sure we were in for a treat. After her Gold 001 glitter, Phantom 002 eyeshadow line and the Skin Fetish 003 highlighter kit, the Pat McGrath Lust 004 lip kit seems to be the natural evolution of the brand, especially in this day and age when more importance is given to lip products.
Meant to be worn alone or in combination with one another, the Pat McGrath Lust 004 lip kits feature lip products with different finishes, from matte to vinyl glossy to metallic gold. As much as she likes to experiment with interesting finishes and textures when working backstage or getting A-list celebrities ready for red carpet events, Pat encourages us to give in to the temptation of embracing our boldest self, playing with these richly pigmented lip products that are sure to fly off the shelves.
While you can get your favorite lipstick color separately too, the complete Pat McGrath Lust 004 Everything kit ($150) comprises all the products the collection offers – six matte lipsticks (Flesh 1, Flesh 2, Venom 1, Venom 2, Blood 1, Blood 2), a Clear Vinyl Gloss, a Metallic Gold Pigment, and Microfine Glitter in Flesh, Venom and Blood. You can wear the matte lipsticks alone or layered to create dazzling ombre looks, while adding a coat of the lip-gloss over the lipstick will add a miraculous shine to your pout.
The Metallic Gold Pigment can be layered over your matte lipstick, lip-gloss or both for a more dramatic look, while the Microfine Glitters come to add a lustrous, couture-esque touch to your party looks drawing all eyes on your lips.
The products come captured inside McGrath’s signature packaging, featuring sparkling sequins that can become addictive.
If $150 is too much for you, you can pay $60 to get a 5-piece kit featuring 2 matte lipstick colors, a Clear Vinyl Gloss, a Metallic Gold Pigment, and Microfine Glitter in Flesh, Venom or Blood, while the lipsticks alone are available for $25 each.
If it takes Kylie Jenner 1-5 minutes to sell out her lip kits and birthday edition makeup sets, we are pretty sure Pat McGrath’s couture-infused 004 Lust lip kits will fly off instantly, so be ready to act really, really fast!
