I like this lady, especially the videos with her for D&G backstage. She's artistic and she seems nice too. It'll be interesting what she does.

Ugh! That is too huge a jump in price point too soon! $40 to $240! No no no. I love PM but that is waaaay over priced even for LE.
It's not $240 for one colour. It's 4 colours, two brushes, a gel liner, an eye blush and an eye gloss. That's a lot for the price, really. I assume the singles will be available for the same $40 each.

I saw the full kit from the link. My point is she released one product. It sold out immediately because of the short run. For her second release its a full jump to a kit for $240. The line has not been proven yet. I'm willing to try a new line/new product one piece at a time but $240 is too much for me to jump in full on. If the singles are available that will be good. :)

I had it in my cart but I couldn't get myself to check out. I would only use the blue pigment (out of the four) on a regular basis. I hope I don't regret not buying it.

^^^^I confess I had no intention of purchasing this release. Again, too rich for my purse and it is holiday gift buying time. I iz brokes! I did get the release email at 11:52 AM and it was available for about an hour. I get that she is generating a buzz around her line, by making it unique and exclusive right now. BUT I really hope her line will release more reasonably priced items not so limited in number in the near future. I would be more willing to jump in & give her products a try.

It's a lot to spend at once when you're not going to use it every day

Since the kit has several pieces in it (from pigment to brushes), it is not so pricey per piece. But the fact that you are forced to buy all the colors/pieces from a line I know little about (I love Pat McGrath but I don't know much about the makeup, especially the brushes) and the colors are not your everyday shades, it was too much for me to take the plunge. I would have considered paying up to $140, but $240 was psychologically too much of an investment for a first-time buyer. I am (im)patiently waiting for a whole line to be released from her which I'm sure will probably happen some time in 2016 with all of this hype surrounding her and her makeup.

These releases from her have mostly been marketed for makeup artists and other people in the beauty industry that use these products with their jobs. She has a great reputation so most will purchase without batting an eyelid. A lot of artists will also purchase out of respect for all she has offered as an artist, teacher, etc. For the regular consumer.... it'll be like "so how much are those makeup geek pigments again?" lol!
