Pat McGrath sure knows how to keep us guessing—she’s been teasing her new launch all over Instagram through all the fashion weeks, keeping us wanting to know more. Let’s be honest, besides her insanely beautiful work, we’ve been in love with the woman’s venture into make-up ever since she launched the first Gold 001 pigment—it’s the dreamiest gold we’ve ever seen. Then came the eight-piece pop-coloured Phantom 002 eye kit, followed by the ultimate highlighter set, Skin Fetish 003. Nothing had us as hooked as the Lust 004 lip kit though—we’re still lusting over the glimmer of it all. After that was the Metalmorphosis 005, which brought back the Gold 001 pigment with all its other metallic siblings.
Now, keep your credit cards ready and schedule a reminder on your calendar on April 11 for *drumroll, please* Dark Star 006. Another addition to her line-up of eye kits, this Pat McGrath Labs launch has three variants, just like the Lust 004. Keeping up with the holographic make-up trend, the Dark Matter kit ($95/LKR 14,421) comes with the basics of this collection—three blending pigments: a shimmer black called Dark Matter, a soft gold called Mercury and Astral White, a unicorn-like white hue; a holographic Cyber Clear eye gloss; a blender blush and a creamy kohl stick. The UltraViolet Blue kit ($130/LKR 19,735) contains all the contents of Dark Matter along with a namesake bold violet and cobalt eyeshadow while the UltraSuede Brown kit ($130/LKR 19,735) comes with a highly-pigmented sparkling brown eyeshadow of the same name. If the eye make-up looks at Anna Sui and Prada are anything to go by, we’re all definitely in for a treat.
