Pat McGrath x Bridgerton Blushing Delights Swatches

These are just some quick swatches of the new baked blush and highlighter palette from the Pat McGrath x Bridgerton 2 collection. A lot of people have complaints about this collection (myself included) so I’m not thinking it will sell out. However, on the chance that I’m wrong, I wanted to go ahead and get some swatches posted. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to test these products out.

Fantasy Makeup Declutter

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Blush Swatch, Lancome Stick Foundation (410 Bisque W) Swatch, Laura Mercier Rose Glow Highlighter Swatch, and MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara

Today I wanted to talk about some products that I just can’t seem to part with, but I could stand to declutter. This is a fantasy declutter because I have no intention of donating or selling any of these products. There are times when I don’t hesitate with letting go of items that don’t work. When you try a lot of makeup (or anything really) there will definitely be items that don’t work out, it’s inevitable. Whether it is because of the formula or the shade, I’ve come to realize that there is something about all four of these products that just aren’t right for me.

Stroll Down Memory Lane with Me – Some Discontinued Makeup Favs

I was feeling a bit nostalgic looking through some old pictures and decided it’d be fun to take you along with me.

Urban Decay Born To Run Palette

Urban Decay Born To Run Palette Swatches on Medium Dark Skin (shade names: Breakaway, stranded, blaze, radio, big sky)

To me (and many others), this was such a good palette that should have been permanent. This being discontinued makes me sad especially since Urban Decay seems to be switching all of their eyeshadows over to their new vegan formula. I have nothing against vegan formulas, but I just do not like theirs. I did check out the Wild Greens Palette in person, and while it was cute, the formula felt like the eyeshadow singles that I tried last year (check out those swatches and my review here). I assume my other love, the naked heat will be discontinued as soon as they can get rid of the remaining inventory. At least that is my perception based on the new vegan formula releases and the constant sales on the older palettes. I guess we’ll see what happens.

I have not tried the new formulation of the vice lipsticks and to be honest, I’m kind of being stubborn about it because I loved the vice formula so much. This was one of the best cream lipsticks on the market. I tried several colors over the years and they all wore well throughout the day and had great pigment. I would say it has a thicker formula, which I personally love, but a lot of the lipstick formulas that are released these days are thinner. I have seen this available on the Nordstrom Rack website, so if you like to shop there, its something to consider.

Pat McGrath Eyedols Eye Shadow in Enraptured, $12.50**

This is kind of a weird one because it seems like they are discontinued since they’ve been on sale for $12.50 (marked down from $25.00) for a VERY long time. There are also 4 shades available at Bergdorf Goodman**, but they are still the full price for some reason. So I’m not sure if this one is actually discontinued, but as of today, there are still a lot of shades available direct from the Pat McGrath website for $12.50.** I’m still recovering from missing out on the 50% off sale that the Pat McGrath website had yesterday 😭. If you are interested in other Pat McGrath products, they do have 25% off select products** right now, although these are not included.

Anyways, this is a beautiful color and the formula is amazing. It is by far the most pigmented eyeshadow I’ve ever used. That could be good or bad depending on your preference, but I still find that it is easy to work with. It is easy to use as a one-and-done shade or for a more complex look it blends well with other colors. I’ve never minded buying single eyeshadows, but I know a lot of people complained about the $25.00 price, but there is no way you’ll go through this very fast since it is so pigmented. I think they were worth the full price, but you can’t beat this quality for $12.50.

If you are a luxury beauty lover you likely already know what is available at Bergdorf Goodman, but there are a couple of standouts that I wanted to point out. As usual, I tend to stay in the makeup lane, but this sale could be nice for anyone into luxury skincare and fragrances that can get pricey.

If you missed any of the Pat McGrath holiday 2021 items Bergdorf still has a few pieces in stock. I enjoy my Bronze Borealis Quad** from the collection and I posted swatches and a review that you can check out if you’re curious for more details. They also still have stock of the Blush + Glow Trio** in both shades (amber allure and galactic sun).

This could also be a good option if you haven’t had a good experience with ordering direct from the Pat McGrath Labs website. I haven’t personally ever had issues, but I have heard of people having trouble. If you order direct through Pat McGrath there are better sales available, so keep that in mind as well.
