Whenever Pat McGrath releases anything, such as her recent Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip & Eye Kits, it is always exciting! One big reason is, Pat McGrath is the makeup artist for the models who walk the runways during fashion week. Even more, fashion week is really fashion weeks. In other words, Pat does the makeup for the runway models during fashion week for the New York Designers. Next, she moves to the next country. For instance, the London Fashion Week is next. Hence, Pat does her makeup artistry for the London Designers whose Models walk the catwalks in London. Then, Pat goes to Paris for the Paris Fashion Week. And the list goes on and on.
Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip & Eye Kits How The Story Goes
Fashion shows occur in each city during the early fall, and continue during the winter months. Above all, Pat McGrath is one of the best makeup artists in the world. For years she specifically created her own shades of makeup for her couture Runways. One of those shades, the Dark Star Eyeshadow 006 was created for the 2016 Runways. Furthermore, Pat specifically created Lust 004 for the 2017 Versace runway shows. After the shows, Pat created LImited Edition Pat McGrath Lab Kits from her recipes in her secret vault. Then, she put these limited edition Dark Star 006, and Lust 004 kits on her website. Of course, they sold out within minutes. Make that seconds! I remember having a difficult time getting the Dark Star 006 KIt. Pat’s website crashed right away! Then, nobody could get on the site for hours!
Also, most people missed out on the opportunity to actually own a Pat McGrath creation, eye, or lip. Even more, the original kits were extensive. More, they were also extremely expensive. So, this is how the story ends. Mother, another name for Pat McGrath, decided to create next generation kits so that all of those who missed out on the originals could finally have the products that made those kits stars.
Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip & Eye Kits And Other Configurations
First, Pat pared down the contents of the new, 2021 Limited Edition Lab Kits . As a result, Pat was able to bring the prices down. Also, there are a variety of Kit configurations that you can choose from. One variation, the one I purchased, is the Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip & Eye Kits. This kit includes the Dark Star 006 V2. And, Dark Star 006 V2 is the the original PM Labs Dark Star 006. Also, included in this bundle, is PM Labs next generation, of the original Lust 004, now called Lust 006 V3.
You can find all of the Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip and Eye Kits in all the configurations on The Pat McGrath Website.
And, Lust 006 V3 comes in two shades. Each shade has its own kit. Each Lip Color KIt costs $32.
Therefore, you get to choose one of the two lip kits for the Lust Star Lip & Eyes Kits, which costs $65.
However, there is another kit that is called Lust Star Everything, that includes the Eye Kit and Both LIp Kits, that costs $92.
And, if you want both Lip kits, you can purchase the Lust 004 V3 Lip Kit Duo that costs $54.
Finally, the Dark Star 006 V2 costs $46.

My Final Thoughts On The Pat McGrath Lust Star Lip & Eye Kits……….
First, these kits are limited editions. Therefore, if you don’t want to miss out on these kits twice, then get yours now. Remember, Mother Pat is one of the greatest makeup artists in the world! Not only does she apply makeup, she has always created makeup for her models. However, this is not your everyday, ordinary makeup! Instead, this is dramatic, editorial,makeup. Therefore, Pat’s clients are models who are wearing couture clothes to walk a catwalk in a fashion show. Or, the model is doing a print ad.
About Pat’s Kits
So, Pat invents products that work together to create different looks. For example, her lip kit has three products. First, you can wear the Rose Desire by itself. It is a pretty lipstick. Also, you actually could wear this during the day! But, when you apply the lip gloss, the effect changes. Your lip is glossy and more dramatic. Although, when you apply the Rose Desire Glitter on top, then that is the big Wow! You certainly won’t walk around in glitter lips every day. Maybe, once a year you’ll bring out the glitter if you are going to a club, or a crazy party.
The same thing goes for the Ultraviolet Pigments. I love this shade, and would create a smokey eye with this blue pigment. Now, let’s say I was going to a nighttime affair. Then, I would put the black eyeliner on as a base, and then put the pigments over it. This creates a deeper, more dramatic look, perfect for a party. Now, the Cyber eye gloss can be worn alone, over the black pencil, or over the UltraViolet Pigments. So, if you love playing with makeup, and experimenting with different effects, these kits are amazing.
