If you have even a fleeting interest in beauty, chances are Pat McGrath’s makeup line will be high on your Wishlist. I’ve been dying to try out the products since the iconic Face Kits launched back in 2015, but considering there hasn’t been a UK way to try before you buy, I’ve been hesitant to purchase, just in case I’ve picked the wrong shades.
So, when I was down in London last month, I made my pilgrimage to Selfridges, where the Pat McGrath Mothership has landed. The installation will be in place until June, and even if you’re not a makeup junkie, it’s worth a visit. From the space-age window displays to the golden installation, it’s truly a sight to behold!
The Mothership contains everything from makeup to lifestyle bits as well as some seriously luxurious fashion picks. When I popped in their were Tom Ford shoes for sale alongside specially commissioned chocolate coins, and you can even enjoy beauty treatments like manicures and makeovers.
Obviously, I was there for the makeup. After playing around with some bits and pieces, I couldn’t resist picking up a selection of products – the Eyedols shadow in Celestial (£23 available here) which I reviewed here, as well as the Lust Lip Glass in Future Femme (£25 here) and Love Potion (£25 here). The whole experience was so fun – from getting to play with the makeup (I’m still dreaming about the Mothership Palettes and Skin Fetish highlighters) to experiencing the whole display – it’s a real must visit!
