Pat McGrath Metalmorphosis Kits

I recently purchased the new Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005 Kit. The kit I got is in the color Gold and it is the one that I wanted the most out of all of them.

I, like almost everyone I know, was super excited when I found out that Pat McGrath would be releasing these kits in Sephora. She came out with the pressed pigments a few years back and I, unfortunately, was not able to purchase any because they sold out in minutes. So when the news broke that Pat McGrath was releasing a whole kit of these, I was over the moon.

Once again, I found myself at 12am on the day of the release, stalking Sephora. I might have been the first one to buy this kit, that’s how much I wanted it. The packaging on these products is her usual bag full of sequence and the products in plastic inside. There are four things that come in these kits, the cream eye shadow, the black double-sided eyeliner, the gold pigment and the Mehron mixing liquid. The idea is that you can use the pressed pigment with the mixing liquid and it should come out super metallic. The set of four is sold for $60 dollars and there are four different colors. You can also purchase the Everything Kit for $165 dollars which includes all of the cream and pressed pigment shades, one eye liner and one Mehron mixing liquid bottle.

My honest opinion, I am very disappointed by this product. Judging by the press photos, I was expecting something out of this world. In the pictures, the swatches of the pressed pigments mixed with Mehron mixing liquid are beautiful. It looks as if the product is a metallic tape applied to the skin. The application is uniform in color, no graininess or patchiness. In real life, that is just not the case. It is impossible to get the product to apply the way it looks in the pictures. Though I don’t mind a bit of graininess, it was not what I was looking for with this pressed pigment. Also, there is quite a bit of transfer. I tried to do a cut crease look and the pigment kept transferring to my upper lid. Nothing I did would stop that transfer. The double-sided liner is, in my opinion, the worst product in the whole set. The formula is horrible. It leaks and transfers and ends up all over your eye within a half an hour. It is difficult to work with and just goes everywhere. With the pigment going all over my lid and the eyeliner not working, I was getting really frustrated trying to do my makeup.

The cream shadow is the only product that was ok in this whole kit. It worked fine, didn’t transfer and was easy to apply, but it isn’t anything special. The color is just ok and most of us makeup connoisseurs definitely have something exactly like this shadow already in our collections.

Overall, the Pat McGrath Metalmorphosis Kits are a fail for me. I definitely do not think that they are worth the money or the hype. Honestly, the only thing I enjoyed out of this whole frustrating experience was the sequence in the packaging. J
