I stopped buying the limited release makeup kits from Pat McGrath Labs after Lust 004. They were too limited and the scramble to get your hands on a set always led to bad decision making when it came to just how much I should spend. Especially when international shipping was an excruciating $20US and meant your fabulous package turned up at least a week after everyone else’s.
That, plus I’ve downsized my house and I do not have the space for more makeup. Unless I build an extension. Then I will have no money.
While I can’t fix the latter issue, Net-a-Porter has me covered on the Pat McGrath Labs FOMO and my exorbitant shipping aversion.
Re-releases are now available through Net-a-Porter for the following editions:
- SkinFetish 003 – Golden and Nude – Both reviewed here
- Lust 004 (Everything Kit) – Vermilion Venom reviewed here
- Metalmorphosis 005 in all colour ways
- Dark Star 006 – UltraSuede Brown and Ultra Violet Blue
Yes, that means they’re no longer really ‘limited edition’ if Pat McGrath Labs keeps releasing more. But didn’t we kinda see that coming when they stopped numbering the sets ‘No. 420 of 1200’ like my Phantom 002?
What it does mean is super affordable 2 day shipping – or in some cases free shipping and same day delivery – depending on how much you buy and where you live. And a second chance to get a hold of the kit that slipped through your fingers.
So, are you going to pull the trigger on your second chance? I’m tempted… Dark Star 006 UltraSuede Brown I’m looking at you!
(I bet you’re sold out by the end of the week…)
