Cult Beauty Product Alert: Pat McGrath’s #Phantom002

15th Dec 2015

If there’s one name in beauty before whom we will always bow, it’s the legendary Pat McGrath. The world famous make-up artist recently released her own pigmented gold foil that sold out in a similar fashion to Kylie Jenner’s lip kit. Upon the release of #Gold001, the beauty blogosphere went bananas, with all other shimmering eye palettes positively blown out of the water. From the catwalk to your own vanity mirror, gilded eyes and lips were finally having their moment. Now, for those who’ve missed out, she’s back with her follow up offering: #Phantom002. This time, McGrath made a conscious shift away from your every day gold towards a darker world of night time noir (black eye gloss for an oil sick effect across your peepers, anyone?). Teasing us via her Instagram profile, here’s a taster of what you can expect.

My blue heaven. Electrifying. Entrancing. Enigmatic. #Blue002 combined with the new highly-pigmented #Gold002. Included in the #Phantom002 kit, available 12.15.15 NOON EST at PATMCGRATH.COM ??????

The complete collection comprises of four intense pigments: hot fuchsia, electric gold, dazzling copper and shocking blue. Also included are a selection of eye brushes, a black eye pencil and the aforementioned black eye gloss that will certainly add a touch of high fashion and artistry to your night time look. Best of all, these soon-to-be cult beauty products come encased in a glittering sequined bag.

These colours are not for the faint-hearted; they’re bold, they’re strong, but they’re the most fun you’ll have with your eyes this party season. Sure to sell out, if you’re a make-up obsessive, you’ll need to get yourself to today at 5 pm (12 pm in America) and have $240 to spare. If you’ve just had to pick yourself up off the floor upon reading that price tag, we know; yikes! – check out this video (or swatch porn as she likes to call it) to see their insanely strong pay-off in action. Have you ever seen anything like it? With only 1200 kits available we suggest you move fast.
