A Look At Pat McGrath's New Foundation. Is It Worth It?

Is there anything better than a foundation promising sublime skin? Mmm… probably but even still, but this is probably a close second.

Over the weekend I picked up the new Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation with high hopes. I’ve been following Pat’s career since I was a teen, devouring the looks of her runway creations in pages of fashion magazines. That was the 90’s people and yes, I’m that old and have been beauty and fashion obsessed for as long as I can remember.


For those who don’t know, Pat McGrath is an iconic makeup artist who has created looks for all of the top designers such as Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Gucci, Versace, Maison Margiela, and Yohji Yamamoto to name a few. Her eponymous makeup line has been around for a couple of years now and has gotten quite the cult following in a short time.

The Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection foundation is her first foundation and comes in 36 shades.

I don’t want to give away too much in this post as I want you to watch my YouTube review, but I can tell you this: the results are disappointing.

I performed my wear test for two days while we experienced hot and humid weather conditions in Toronto. I was indoors in an air-conditioned environment for most of the day and probably spent 30 mins outdoors.

During this time I didn’t change my skincare or makeup routine. I also set the foundation with a setting spray one day and used the new Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Mattifying Primer the next day.

I’ll leave it at that for now. Make sure you click the video above to see my results!
