Pat McGrath Labs The Mothership V: Bronze Seduction


The Mothership is making her fifth landing this September, serving us some metallic bronze, rose gold and crimson goodness for fall season. 


Pat McGrath is undeniably the most influential and sought-after makeup artist in the world.

For more than two decades, she has been conceptualising, launching and developing luxury cosmetic lines like Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, countless runway shows, breakthrough advertising campaigns and editorial spreads. 

Pat McGrath Labs has been a blockbuster brand, with their uniquely formulated Mothership Palettes and MatteTrance lipsticks at the forefront of their success.


First of all, the formulas in most of her products are innovative, and dare we say revolutionary. With the Mothership palettes, Queen PMG has managed to make these intensely pigmented duo chrome shadows smooth and creamy, whilst still ensuring that they have extreme blendability and adherence. 


With the Bronze Seduction Palette, a divine combination of metallic gold (and rose gold!), bronze, as well as crimson shades, look fantastic on a whole range of skin tones! This versatile addition to PMG's Mothership collection is all set to make its way on to our list of guilty pleasures. 

If you're not convinced by the swatches, why not watch them live? Watch Tati's review of PMG's previous Mothership palettes, or view Johanna's beautiful demo eye look (at 10:50) with Mothership II - Sublime below:


Besides her luxurious palettes, we're also dying to get our hands on her new MatteTrance™ Lipsticks! Specially formulated with optical diffusers that blur the appearance of imperfections, these look extremely matte in the tube but go on your lips like butter. With just one stroke, an intense amount of pigment provides full coverage, and a little goes a long way.

If you've never seen them swatched, we particularly love this video of Jeffree Star's where you can really see those pigments in action! Also, fun fact: Twisting the gold portion of the tube sends the lipstick straight upwards instead of it swirling, allowing you to immediately start off with a precise angle for application.

We're totally drooling over these new MatteTrance shades Christy (a beige nude), Elson 2 (a fiery red-orange), Forbidden Love (a classic deep red) and Guinevere (a crimson nude).
