Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

My top picks would be

1. Subliminal Platinum Bronze (the 6 pan) continues to be my favourite small palette. If I was really hopelessly restrained to one palette for travel, I would take this one with me. It’s the perfect daytime palette for me and the matte (which isn’t a brown hallelujia) is a an excellent enhancer for my green hazel eyes.

2. Faux Pas is a terrific very wearable purple lipstick

I have to admit this 20% thingee is making me rethink my position of the new Mothership.. ugh

Sooo tempting! However, I’m just going to have to wait until November Rouge sale to make any of my planned (or semi-planned?) expenditures on one of the Mothership palettes. I’m torn between very fun, cheery (haha) Subversive and the much more sensible, anytime wearable Northern Lights palette. 🤷‍♀️
Even lipstick has to wait. 🤦‍♀️

I know foundation / primers / concealers are not necessarily in the temptalia realm 😀 but it would be nice to know (given the 20% off code) if `the system` (or parts of it) are worthwhile.
The reviews, especially on the foundation, are all over the place. Especially since I tend to believe some positive reviews are influenced by the fact people like Pat McGraph (or don’t want to dislike her products and offend them), some negative reviews are influenced by the price, and some people won’t review just not to get into `drama`.

It’s similar to Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, but I find Luminous Silk is more consistent in application. Pat McGrath’s foundation sometimes applied and emphasied texture/dryness and other times looked great. It wears down nicely, and it has a good finish after initial application, though it transfers heavily (I don’t really touch my face or anything where transfer is a concern, so it lasted a long time still and looked great after 12 hours of wear).

I ADORE her LuxeTrance and while I don’t care for matte lipsticks, if I had to pick a favorite matte lipstick formula it would be her MatteTrance.

I like her shadow palettes, but not for the $125 price tag. I basically never reach for my Bronze Seduction and when I do it’s a “force myself because it was so expensive kind of thing”.

However I was really impressed by the little baby palettes at $28 in their plastic packaging perfect for travel. They feel rich, creamy, and each one has at least one shade I wanted from other palettes but wouldn’t buy. So I took the opportunity to snag both at the 20% off.

PMG certainly produces excellent quality products, but even on sale they are still expensive. What I have noticed, whilst perusing your excellent dupe list Christine, is that many of the lipstick shades have equally good dupes from Colour Pop, Maybelline and Milani (for less expensive options). Also quite a few of PMG’s lippies are dupes of each other – Strange, Flesh 3, Unnatural Natural etc.
So too some of the singles – I don’t think there could be more dupes of Sextrovert than just about any other shade.
The palettes would be a good deal if only you used all the shades….
The Subliminal Platinum Bronze would be my favourite.

This is sort of off topic but it is about Pat McGrath! A few days ago I was in Cost Plus World Market with my 7 year old and we picked up a bunch of books about trailblazing women throughout the ages and one was an A through Z book and guess who was listed under “P”… Pat McGrath! She was right there alongside women like Lucille Ball and Malala and Amelia Earhart and Queen Elizabeth I. I love that the book includes Mother even though makeup is so often viewed as frivolous and verging on anti-feminist.

Wondering whether the much anticipated restock of Divine Rose Mothership will occur before Dec. 2nd….🤔
As for me, I’m likely getting Deep Orchid MatteTrance and Ritualistic Rose quad. Not sure yet.

I splurged on the Divine Rose last week, if it’s as good as everyone says the formula is I might have to grab one of her more colorful palettes to pair with it.

The only palette of PMG that I could really wear and use is Subliminal Platinum Bronze. Just love those neutral shades.
I think her lipsticks must be stellar too.
However, it is just far too expensive to buy any of her products internationally, with our very poor dollar, shipping costs and import duty on cosmetics.

Already have all of her most recent palettes (including order of the Divine Rose Mothership), the full foundation, primer, and powder (which I like except for the primer), a lot of lipsticks, glosses, balms, smaller palettes, just about everything. I did see a set that Celestial, Taupe and some sort of plum Velvet trio of individual colors that looked nice together. After ordering the most recent quads and her new Rose Mothership, I could not justify buying more lipsticks or mascara, but it was hard to resist the sale.

I was bummed not to get the rose quad during the Sephora. I guess it worked out for a reason. I was able to get it, the Midnight Sun palette and a few other items at 30% off. Any money I can save is a win in my book. The Mothership VII is on the way to me. From this point on, I don’t see myself making any more PMG purchases. To be honest, I really need not buy any more eyeshadow palettes for quite a while and just enjoy using what I have.

Thanks for this post – it really helped me differentiate between the products and work out which ones I wanted to take advantage of her discount. I previously bought the Ritualistic Rose set (eye palette and lipsticks) and have been delighted with all of them (I’ve previously bought individual lipsticks in all 3 formulas and am a big fan). I had completely missed the Subliminal Platinum Bronze Palette – I guess because it was a limited edition from a while ago and so must’ve sold out fast if Sephora AU had even had it… which who knows? We only get limited stock of selected items here. Anyway I could get it from her site, free international shipping, plus the 25% discount? That’s a win! These colours are completely up my alley and I would possibly have taken the risk to purchase without being able to read your in-depth review and swatches, but unlikely. So I’m glad I could purchase it through your link. Thanks again for your excellent reviews and product roundups. It is so helpful in an often overwhelming and crowded marketplace!

To be honest, ranking my favorite products from her is a little torturous, and it feels like you’re being asked to pick who your favorite child is. Depending on my mood, depending on the day, it can change! But for now….

My top 5 palettes:
Mothership VI Midnight Sun
MTHRSHP Subversive La Vie En Rose
Mothership II Sublime
Mothership III Subversive
MTHRSHP Subliminal Platinum Bronze

I’m not sure what happened but something took over my pointer finger and I hit “complete purchase” for the Blitz Quad set 😳. All 3 quads came to $119 which seems like a steal considering a 10 pan palette is $125 with only 4 “special shades”. Darn Shopify and your easy checkouts.

Every fiber of my being is resisting this sale after the Sephora sale, lol. Thirty percent is just too good. I adore Pat’s shimmer lip glosses, am halfway through all her sample size glosses, and have made big dents in MTHRSHP La Vie en Rose and my other color shadows. I don’t use my Pat McGrath LuxeTrance or MatteTrance as much as I thought I would (respectively, LuxeTrance — so pigmented it’s hard to apply for me straight from the bullet without a mirror; MatteTrance — a little clingy feeling though beautiful and crazy long wearing). I think I might pick up her lip balm in Love Supreme, as I just own it in clear. I bought one for my mom for Christmas!

I really love Attitude, Flesh 3 and the Flesh 4 gloss. I loved Bronze Sublime palette and one of my only backups. I have four Motherships, soon five. And I’m still kinda pissed at her. I turned my boss onto this brand and she told me about the discount. Then she told me she freaked on Decadence and how weird the website was. I told her about the “flash” releases and if I saw it, I’d snag one for her and me. Then I realized I have to get over her recent snafu, explained it and then we balked at the fact she could totally make bank. That’s what finance analytical people do. 🤓

Even though I love her products and could probably talk myself into purchasing something. I’m going to stay on my no buy and enjoy reading about what everyone else is enjoying purchasing.

In an idea world, if I have to pick one palette to buy and use all the time, instead of buying 10 palettes that I would not use, it would be one from Pat Mcgrath.
But in reality, there are just too many tempting launch everywhere that I don’t have enough self control to not buy anything else. I do happen to buy a Pat Mcgrath palette here and there while the sale is good. I force myself to use them once in awhile over my other cheaper palettes and it is always an extremely enjoyable experience.
My new year resolution was to hit pan on some eye shadow so I can justify rewarding myself a nice Pat Mcgrath palette when Thanksgiving hit again later this year.
