Update on Pat McGrath Skin Fetish

Real quick, ok I have been wearing nude nonstop for the past few days (the powder over the balm on the highest points of my cheeks), and I have never ever received compliments on my highlighter until I wore this. Id get complimented on my eye shadow, tattoos, blush, glasses, handbag. Never my highlighter. I get complimented at least 3 times a day from people when I go out. At Ulta, Sephora, Chipotle, Grocery Store, drugstore. Its been really great, and this product definitely deserves all the admiration.

I just wanted to add that in because it was such a shock to me to get people really responding to it. My makeup skills are meh, so usually I get compliments on outfit or accessories. But this highlighter is getting all the attention.

It’s still the best! And I have noticed it lasts all day.

So yeah! Thanks Pat McGrath!

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Review!

OMG OMG I died when I realized I could order these. I tried getting them off of her website but the site was crashing and they sold out super quick. Fast forward a bit and as a Sephora Rouge member I was able to buy them a week before they launched on Sephora’s site. I know these will sell out FAST! and once they are gone they are GONE, so don’t miss out!

Also if you don’t know who Pat McGrath is what rock have you been living under? She is probably one of the most talented and amazing MUA ever.

Also if you can tell by my hype that I obviously LOVED these. so yeah, lets get on with it!

Left to right, is the balm, the powder highlighter, and the highlighter stick.

Here is what the golden looks like on me. I was debating actually posting this because the lights were washing out the colors but Meh….

This is the golden. I had put on the nude earlier. Its hard to really see but it has the most beautiful shimmer and gives a beautiful glow to the skin. Its positively ethereal.

Final Thoughts

This met, and in some ways exceeded my expectations. I will go into each part separately.

  • The Stick Duo- The balm is magnificent. it gives this healthy dewy look to the skin. It almost makes you glisten and look kinda juicy in the most positive way possible. The highlighter stick is impressive as well. Beautiful colors from both the nude and the golden set. You could also use it as an eyeshadow as well.
  • The Buffer Brush- Is nice and soft, and does a good job. Only gripe is that the label for is is kinda a sticker. could have stepped up that game a bit in my opinion.
  • Powder highlighter- GOOD LORD these were the winners for me. Both were stunning, and you could build them up for a subtle glow to a show stopping strobing effect.

I would say that if you are unsure which to get, if you are paler go for the nude and if you are a darker complexion, or even have a warm undertone the golden would be best.

Seriously If you were on the fence about this don’t be. My only complaint is the packaging  for the products seems a little cheap. But the quality of the products is outstanding!

Grade – A++++
