Ahh these are so beautiful they put my soul at ease. It’s like looking at fine art, haha!

I’m so excited for her permanent collection. Just have to save my coin now!

Wow, $125 a shadow palette? Curious to see swatches/reviews, would have to score A and have a good number of unique shades to justify. Otherwise, I can get a Viseart ($80) and UD ($50) for about same price

Oh dear, I’m in trouble! I love all the colors of the palettes, especially Sublime! I’ll buy that one first and see how I like it. Can’t wait for your reviews to come out!

Those eyeshadow palettes make me weak in the knees! Like, their exquisite beauty, AND their insane cost. Not all that comfortable paying $125 for just 10 eyeshadows. And yet, here I am fairly set on looking into the Lila Palette, but it has far more shades, but possibly not as unique as some of these. Confused now!

Okay, onto the lipsticks! The span of shades looks pretty darn solid. I love seeing shades of pink for those of us in the dark end of “medium” and deeper! Not having chalky, white bases or very blue tones, either. Also, some very gorgeous rich shades, too. I’m excited for their reviews! ?

They just have a look of opulence, don’t they? I’m keeping my fingers crossed! They are too expensive, IMO to invest in more than one! Huda beauty, Marc Jacobs, Natasha Denona, and Pat McGrath— all beautiful eye shadow palettes– so difficult to choose just one!!

I like and prefer your selection of name brands for eyeshadow palettes, though I’ve not gotten Huda’s yet (but I tested it and it seems that it was as good as the others mentioned, just the color scheme is too rosy). And since I didn’t think Pat McGrath’s eyeshadow up until now was as good as ND’s (though I do like), that sort of makes me want to wait for reviews and a financial blessing (Ha!) before I would pay for Pat’s palettes.

Well, I don’t consider the shadow palettes to be “core” for anyone but Pat McGrath, but the lipsticks are very pretty. I may have to try one since I’ve sworn off mattes.

Those lipsticks are beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. The slick appearance of the bullets, the little Dada-esque gold lips, the edit of colors… the price is absurd, though not like Louboutin and Tom Ford, but if they’re gorgeous, I might buy one.

And LaBeija? In honor of the House of LaBeija? I love it.

Nothing she has come out with warrants the price tag. The palette is probably the most interesting. Much better than her boring collection of lipsticks!

The palettes are beautiful. I’m just aghast at the price. It’s staggering at $170 in Canada. I don’t think I can do it. I’m mouth agape in sticker shock..

Honestly if I was looking for a new eyeshadow palette, I would definitely get one of these if the reviews are good. Loving these concepts and colour choices and at 12.50 per shadow it doesn’t look that expensive, compared to a lot of other brands. The lipstick shades look a lot more dupable and regular.

Oooooh those shadow palettes are calling out to me. But I can’t say I don’t have any of the colours in other palettes that I have. Will have to try in person to see if performance will tip me over the edge. If I did t have the colours I would definitely be getting both. Gorgeous combinations of wearable shades! Lipsticks a total pass tho, drab and nothing new at all.

Ummmmm, just saw they are $170 Canadian! Even I’m not THAT crazy, that’s almost two Viseart palettes and it just so happens there are two I don’t have yet. There’s my justification to get them lol!!! They just became a bargain?

Oh I love the eyeshadow palette packaging, just wish they weren’t so expensive. Ah well, I’ll just look from afar. Lol.

Subversive & Sublime are calling me, but at that price and with five less than Natasha Denona’s up & coming palette, I will have to pass. Maybe one day, when there are enough different colors in the palette that I don’t already have, you give then all A’s and I get a bonus or something ;), could I see purchasing one. The photos do make you go ‘Ahhh!” for a number of the colors though.

Beam me up to this Mothership. I think I will hold back on makeup purchases for a while and treat myself to the Sublime palette during a sale or for Christmas. All three palettes look phenomenal, each shadow looks like it is a fashion statement on its own! I also look forward to hearing from you how the lipsticks perform.

Oh Mama Mia! I’m going to have wait for your reviews, but I’m a gonner. I’m drooling over the eye palettes. Three of them at $170 CAD, maybe my birthday gift to myself?

Based on the description, is this the same formula as the cream shadows from Metalmorphosis 005? Especially since one of the palettes seems to have Bronze 005 as a color.

Either way, really looking forward to this release!

These colors, packaging, and color grouping look STUNNING.
Too bad they are insanely high in price…
A pass for me, but definitely one of those items you aspire to get!

I just learned about this World Renowned MUA Pat McGrath while reading the BUZZ/InStyle Mag. I found her website which is incredibly beautiful with photo shots of her Fashion Week influence, her makeup styles & her newly launched makeup line.
The video marketing of the eyeshadows, lipsticks & liners is gorgeous! I’m definitely connecting with the opulent eye colors & feel confident that since her collection is unlimited, I can wait awhile to get my hands on one of the palettes. Which is great, since just about every makeup company is launching a new highlighter, palette or lipstick collection. I hate that feeling of having to rush to buy the latest launch based on the limited release. I have collected many palettes & honestly don’t need another but these palettes are like jewels…Buying a piece of magic.?
