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.
