It’s official: glitter has emerged as a MAJOR party season make-up trend.
The first (oh-so-shiny) sign appeared at Prada S/S 16 (remember those mesmerising molten gold lips?), then at A/W ’16, when Taylor Hill walked for Atelier Versace sporting a ruby red glitter pout (pictured below). Most recently, eagle-eyed beauty buffs spotted streaks of gleaming silver in the inner corners of Gigi Hadid’s eyes at Versace S/S 17.
Global make-up authority Pat McGrath was responsible for all three knockout looks, and the corresponding products to recreate them, under her new Pat McGrath Labs brand. The first, Gold 001, sold out in seconds; as did the Lust 004 lip kits.
But those liquid silver eyes have been impossible to replicate – until now. Pat McGrath is releasing her biggest launch to date – Metalmorphosis 005. Featuring the same multi-purpose pigment as Gold 001, but in eight – EIGHT! – metallic shades, you can use them on your eyes à la Gigi, paint them onto lips, or simply swipe onto your arm as McGrath has for these hypnotic, high-shine video teasers. Behold:
What did we tell you? ALL the sparkle.
The Metalmorphosis kits contain four metallic pigments, four metallic creams, a black eyeliner and mixing liquid. They launch on patmcgrath.com on November 15, American time, but be warned: if the past Pat McGrath Lab launches are anything to go by, you’re going to have to get in quick.
