Pat McGrath’s Latest Launch May Be Our Favorite Yet


Our smoky eyed dreams have come true

Lovers of outer space and smoky eye enthusiasts rejoice: Legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath is back with another beauty launch, and this one’s for you. Her most epic release yet, DARK STAR 006, is dropping next month.

After vibrant blue lids and the smokiest of smoky eyes made appearances on the fall 2017 runways all month along (along with her “Something is coming from Pat McGrath Labs” captions) courtesy of McGrath, we had a pretty good idea of what was coming: something dark, something mysterious, and something sultry. However, we were definitely floored today by the beauty of these new kits.

“The DARK STAR 006 kit is all about the infinite blackness of outer space,” McGrath says. “A star before it goes supernova, the iridescence of a raven’s wing, a kohl-rimmed punk with smoke curling from their cigarette, but also a refined rebellion.”

Each of the three kits contain the iridescent Astral White pigment, the shimmering silver Mercury pigment, the soft and blendable black Dark Matter pigment, the Black SmudgeLiner eye kohl, the Blender Brush, and—wait for it—the incredibly gorgeous, iridescent Cyber Clear eye gloss (which may be our most favorite product of them all). While the Dark Matter kit contains all of the above items for $95, the UltraViolet Blue and UltraSuede Brown kits will contain the additional corresponding namesake colored pigments for $130.

Get ready, as DARK STAR 006 will be available starting at noon on April 11 on We don’t expect these to stay in stock for too long (nothing from the cult beauty brand does), so act fast—or you just may miss it, and we assure you that would be pretty devastating. Click through below to take a closer look at each new kit.

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
