Tag: Pat McGrath makeup
After writing about my favourite mascaras, it’s time to share about the ones which are currently on my wish list. The ones which I will be trying next and, although there are a few that I would like to try, I’ve been strict with myself and chose only 3, and here is which ones and why.
Before we start I just wanted to mention that I do not like “natural”/barely there lashes, gimme the full on dramatic lash even in the morning. And all three seem to be perfect for that.
I think this
Makeup4all will turn 8 this February but somehow I never did any themed weeks yet. But I’ve decided to give it a go, because why not?
So, I announce the Lipstick Week.
I will post about the new releases, will review some lipsticks from my collection and will feature my current favourites, along with the most popular lipstick posts in the last almost 8 years.
And it seemed like a cool idea to start this week with an overview of PAT McGRATH LABS Lust 004 Lipstick Kit, $60 from Sephora.
Each kit comes it Pat’s signature packaging with sequins and includes two matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a microfine glitter.
You can wear the lipsticks on their own or layer the glitter/pigment/gloss for the ombre or multi-dimensional look.

Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.
They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.

You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid. The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.
As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty! It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects the light beautifully.

Foundation that made it’s début at Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show; with the look created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!
What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:
The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.
The pump is very well made, it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.
What about the foundation itself?
It has a
If you are into the looks from the Fashion Weeks (I post them here), you probably remember the makeup Pat McGrath created for Dior’s AW14 show got.
The beautiful full-on metallic moss and teal eye looks were stunning, so it was obvious that a lot of people were wondering what eye shadows were used, and here is a sneak preview…
Here is a first look on the palettes
