That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 5.7.18
Question of the Week: What’s the most expensive eye shadow palette you own, and is it worth it?
Answer: It’s the beauty shown here, Pat McGrath Labs Mothership IV Eyeshadow Palette in Decadence. At $125, it’s a big splurge. But this is palette perfection! The pigment is off the charts, the shadow is as smooth as butter, and the packaging is dreamy; from the beveled mirror, the heavy weight and the gold charms on the black lacquered lid.
It makes me happy every time I use it! Turns out, you can buy happiness.
