If there's anything we've learned from past products in celebrity and runway makeup artist Pat McGrath's eponymous line, it's that the woman is not afraid of a bold (and glittery) look.
Her latest release, the Dark Star 006 eye kit ($95-$130, now available at Sephora and online at Pat McGrath Labs), has just as much shine and intensity as we've come to expect from the legendary artist. Each kit includes a blender brush, a black smudge liner and a pot of "cyber clear eye gloss," plus four different pigments to complement the look. On the heels of its release, three Pret-a-Reporter editors with varying degrees of makeup expertise decided to have some fun and try it ourselves.
The pro tip: The pigments are strong, the eyeliner is smooth and the "cyber clear eye gloss" is definitely a game-changer in terms of creating a wet look.
The glossed over: The brush didn't hold the pigment as well as it could have, and the look is not long-wearing. Five hours later, it had almost entirely come off.
The bottom line: Fun to play with for a big night out, but don't rely on it as a beauty staple. Also, we wish the products were sold individually because the eyeliner could be an everyday workhorse; it dries perfectly on application.
Watch below as we try the product, which is described online as a "tech-noir smoky eye kit for intergalactic glamour," for the first time.
