[sample/affiliate] I don’t think it matters a bit if you’re a Star Wars fan or not – this seems like the perfect collaboration for a dramatic, brooding palette with galactic gleam and a storm trooper on the cover to tie in with The Rise of Skywalker. I think Pat is producing some of the finest quality make-up that money can buy so I would not care what the cover was! I’ll tell you straight away that this particular palette is sold out on Pat’s own site at the present time and also displaying a sold out notice on Selfridges (UPDATE: they are hoping for stock on Tuesday). You can still buy the Star Wars lipsticks at Pat’s site HERE.
I’m trying to check if there will be a re-stock and will update if I hear. You might recall that Pat McGrath and Star Wars have teamed up before – ooh as I’m writing this I think I might even have a lipstick from the Max Factor launch that she created for The Force Awakens in 2015!
As you can see, it’s a six pan palette – going left to right on the top row : CosmiK, Venomous Void and Saturnalia, and on the second row it’s Smoked Amethyst, Odyssey and Bronze Nebula.
Despite it being sold out I’m hoping that these shades might re-emerge in other creations but even if not, they’re good illustrations of just how high beam these formulas are and how far you can take an eye shadow in terms of light reflectiveness. I have some more McGrath newness which IS in stock coming soon.
So, a terrible swatch taken under the light in my gloomy kitchen, but you see what I mean about the lightfulness – it’s off the scale, electric almost. All Pat McGrath metallics are at this level.
So, I had a rummage and found the original (complete with jumper fluff in picture – sorry 😉 ) from 2015. Anyway, pricing wise, at the top end, the palette, should it ever come back into stock is £50 and the lipsticks over at Pat’s site are £37.
