Pat McGrath’s impact on the cosmetics industry is something that can never be erased. Known as the “Mother” of the makeup community in the fashion world, McGrath has long been a backstage regular at various major fashion weeks, helping models look as beautiful as the garments they carry down the runway.

Two years ago, McGrath branched out to create her own cosmetics company, Pat McGrath Labs. The first product released was Gold 001, a richly metallic gold pigment that looked like you were applying melted foil on your eyes. The line slowly expanded to glitter lips, eyeshadow kits, and highlighters, with each drop gaining widespread traction, as well as demand. Everything the Labs release gets sold out, and that all just adds to the magic of McGrath.

Talk about the Midas touch.

As a customer, these flash sales will make you feel some frustration when you can’t check out on time. But on 16 September, you’ll never face those woes from Pat McGrath Labs again.

McGrath has created Unlimited Edition, a line of 61 pieces that’s permanent. Here to stay. Not limited edition. We’re summoning as many synonyms possible to let you know that you won’t have to sweat it when it comes to getting your hands on these.

The three key highlights are the Mothership Eye Palettes. Each contains extremely pigmented eyeshadows, with some crowd favourites from previous releases making appearances. If you missed out on the metallic Dark Star eyeshadows, you can find them here.

The Matte Trance lipsticks.

Also in the line are the PermaGel Ultra Lip and Glide Eye pencils, both of which don’t budge at all, a Dark Star mascara, 31 (yes, 31) Luxe Trance lipsticks and nine Matte Trance lipsticks, all for the taking.

Unfortunately, the line won’t be available in local Sephoras, but you can easily arrange a shipment from the US platform, or Pat McGrath Labs’ official site when 16 September arrives.
