Whether you know who Pat McGrath is or not, you’ve surely been influenced by her.
The renowned makeup artist has been heralded by many as one of the best makeup artists, ever. With a client list including brands like CoverGirl, Max Factor, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci, many have been inquiring when she would start her own line. After rumors of McGrath possibly creating her own products swirling in the beauty world, it has finally been confirmed by Pat McGrath Labs that she is gifting all with the dream we’ve been patiently waiting for.
That’s right, we’re all finally getting a full makeup line from Pat McGrath herself next year, and the first product – Gold 001 – is here now!
“Why Gold 001,” you may ask? “I’ve always been obsessed with gold, and have been working with my labs for years to find a product as versatile as this pigment and with this type of finish,” McGrath told Refinery 29. “It’s all of the things that I love in color – all combined in one.”
The gold pigment comes in a set complete Gold 001 pigment, Mehron mixing liquid, metal spatula, second life container and ‘couture’ gold sequins that don’t serve any purpose (that we can tell) other than getting a great Instagram shot.
If Gold 001 looks or sounds familiar it’s because it is. “Gold 001 made its genius debut on the spring 2016 Prada runway,” McGrath said. “I knew that I wanted to debut the look with Ms. Prada, but I didn’t know if it would fit with her direction – luckily, it did. Once she saw it, she loved it and the obsession began for everyone!”
