Pat McGrath Introduces Skin Fetish 003

Pat McGrath has probably one of the most highly anticipated makeup lines, and the specifics are still in the works (the release date is rumored to be around the end of 2016, but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed). But before that comes to fruition, she has been working on a set of limited-edition pigments. Gold 001 was a metallic yellow that stormed the Prada runway, while Phantom 002 was a bundle of stunning hues that was just as bright and enigmatic as the first release. Next up on McGrath’s list is Skin Fetish 003, which is a kit made for highlighting your best features – literally.

Don’t be too taken aback by the name; despite being the flashiest name of the three, this new installation is the most subdued. Because of this, the set is the most versatile, and also the most exciting addition to your makeup repertoire. You can pick up a kit in nude or gold, and it will include everything from McGrath’s signature sequin pouches, a made-in-Japan brush, a pressed pigment, and a two-in-one stick with balm on one end and a highlighter on the other. You can base your entire makeup look from this one kit, so you’ll be glowing both with joy and from the stunning new highlighting makeup.

The pigment, the true star of the kit, is innovative. The advanced technology makes it look like powder, but when used it is actually a gel. The mold it is formed into has the same appearance as the classic pigment powder, so it will be an exceedingly strange and cool experience to use for the first time especially. This decision was made by McGrath in order to give a more “finished” look that just can’t quite be achieved using a powder pigment. The technology used in the creation of the product is reason enough to purchase it, leaving the important decision of choosing the appropriate color.

If you go with nude, you’ll be treated with a lovely opal hue with hints of light pink and lavender. On the other hand, the gold goes more along with the past releases, and, naturally, is a gold hue that looks fresh and glowing on just about any skin tone. No matter which color you end up with, McGrath offers her humble expertise on the proper way to blend the kit items together for a perfect look.

She also advises users to mix the shimmer well, and to not allow it to settle on one blocked spot on your cheekbones. The help in blending, the balm will work wonders on anything from your lips to your eyelids and cheekbones, giving you a “super-sporty, dewy” appearance. The pigment can be added on top of your balm-work, and will give you a highlighted glow that can also work to give yourself a more youthful look.

You will be able to purchase a kit for yourself for $72 starting on April 26 at noon on PatMcGrath.com. However, since this new kit is likely to be even more successful than her previous installments, you will also find them online and in-stores at Sephora on May 10, which is a first for the makeup artist.
