Get ready to #SlayTheSeason with her glitzy new holiday collection

Saint Pat McGrath has come to bless us all with a bit of holiday cheer a few months early by announcing the holiday launch for her cult-favorite cosmetics line Pat McGrath Labs. Get ready for Opulence: The Collection, launching next week. Featuring three six-shade palettes, each contains new glittery, metallic, iridescent, and matte shades that draw influence from some of her most coveted past launches.

MTHRSHP Subliminal: Dark Star, a collection of smoky, deep blacks and blues and glittery golds, is inspired by the limited-edition Dark Star 006; while MTHRSHP Subversive: Metalmorphosis, a gleaming array of metallic and pearlized shades, is inspired by Metalmorphosis 005. MTHRSHP Sublime: Bronze Temptation, a collection of matte neutrals and glitzy golds, greens, and reds, draws inspiration from the MTHRSHP Bronze Ambition palette.

While her popular 10-shade palettes retail for $125, snagging these beauties for $55 is quite a steal. (They make for the perfect stocking stuffer for your loved ones—or, um, yourself.)

Additionally, each palette has been specifically “#PairedByPat” with three shades of existing MatteTrance Lipstick shades, each encased in limited-edition holiday packaging, available for $38 each.

And that’s not all. The last (and, to be honest, our favorite) part of the holiday drop? McGrath has launched a new formula of lip color meant to awaken the glam rocker inside us all, inspired by David Bowie and Marc Bolan: the sparkling BlitzTrance Lipsticks, holding eight shades of full-coverage, high-shine lip color with reflective, glittering pigments. It’s basically a toned-down version of her iconic Lust 004 Lip Kits, which were responsible for Naomi Campbell’s glitzy lip at the 2016 VMAs. BlitzTrance will give you a similar, yet slightly more subtle, effect, appropriate for a holiday party or a trip to the grocery store. These must-haves will also retail for $38 a pop.

Mark your calendars, everything will be available starting October 18 at, and with the holidays just around the corner, these are sure to sell out quick.

Check out the new palettes, below, and stay tuned for a closer look at BlitzTrance.

Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, and Agyness Deyn also star

Elisabeth Moss is trying to keep it together as punk rock artist Becky Something in the trailer for forthcoming movie Her Smell. She's surrounded by iconic faces who make up her band Something She, Gayle Rankin as Ali van der Wolff and Agyness Deyn as Marielle Hell, as she grapples with the fact that her musical prowess just doesn't draw as big a crowd as it used to.

In addition to the wavering fame, Becky is "grappling with motherhood, exhausted bandmates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom," according to a press release. "When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success." And what's clear from the trailer, Moss is absolutely meant for this role, transforming into the punk on the brink of collapse.

Rounding out the cast are Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne, and Dan Stevens. Watch the official trailer, below. Her Smell hits theaters on April 12 in New York and 14 in L.A., with "national expansion to follow."

In an acceptance speech at the BRIT Awards

As The 1975 accepted the BRIT Award for Best British group, outspoken frontman Matty Healy shared the words of journalist Laura Snapes as a way of calling out misogyny that remains ever-present in the music industry. Healy lifted a powerful quote from Snapes' coverage of allegations against Ryan Adams for The Guardian: "Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of 'difficult' artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don't understand art."

Snapes reacted almost immediately on Twitter, saying she was "gobsmacked, and honoured that he'd use his platform to make this statement." Snapes had originally written the line for an interview she published with Sun Kil Moon singer Mark Kozelek back in 2015, in response to Kozelek publicly calling her a "bitch" who "totally wants to have my babies" because she requested to speak in person rather than via e-mail, which she brought up in the more recent piece on Adams. Kozelek's vile response, and the misogyny that allowed it to play out without real consequences, it could be argued, could have easily played out in the same way in 2019, which makes her reiteration of the line, and Healy's quoting it on such a large platform, all the more important.

It should be noted that back in December, Healy caught a bit of heat himself on Twitter for an interview with The Fader in which he insinuated that misogyny was an issue exclusive to hip-hop, and that rock 'n' roll had freed itself of it. He clarified at length on Twitter and apologized, saying, "I kinda forget that I'm not very educated on feminism and misogyny and I cant just 'figure stuff out' in public and end up trivializing the complexities of such enormous, experienced issues."
