obsessed would be an understatement

I bought OMI, FLESH 3, ELSON, FULL PANIC, and MCMENAMY (1995 on the way). These are so beyond amazing! They are exactly how I thought they'd be. I've been searching for the perfect lipstick formula and this is it!!!! It is matte yet creamy with coverage in one swipe and so lightweight. You won't even know there's anything on your lips- that's how good it feels. And the best part, even though they transfer, these stay on the lips!!! Even through drinking and eating! So excited about this which just makes me sad because it is limited edition and wouldn't be able to repurchase! Now the colors: Omi- a perfect my lips but better color (nc 42-44) it's a muted rose shade on me with a slight brown undertone - extremely gorgeous! It's my fave one so far. So perfect for everyday Elson - a blue red. This was the only one I'd say I was a tiny bit disappointed with (def not the formula) but the color wasn't as intense a red as I hoped it to be Flesh 3 - a gorgeous brown terracotta perfect for fall time Full panic - it's a bright pink with a slight red undertone.. all fired up is almost an exact dupe of this but the formula on that is way more drying on the lips Mcmenamy - this color is so gorgeous! You can easily go with the deep vampy look or you can sheer this out so much- im not even kidding and it gives the most beautiful raspberry tint to the lips! It has the most beautiful red undertone! This was def a splurge purchase but it was worth every.single.penny. for me. Pat! Please make these permanent!

I'm a convert to the church of McGrath

Pat is a true visionary who has yet to disappoint me! These lipsticks are hyper pigmented, creamy and lightweight. The formula is significantly less dry feeling than any other matte lipstick I've ever tried, and that's really what won me over. Be aware that the darker shades (i.e. All shades darker than Omi) will stain your lips, so be careful and precise when applying them. I'd recommend using a lip brush and lip liner for the darks if possible. The shades I bought were 1995, Omi, Obsessed, and McMenamy. I hesitated and didn't buy Full Panic like I originally intended to, and I'm kicking myself for that now. I'm relieved to hear that these will be part of her permanent line though, so I'll get my hands on it sooner or later :)

Ooohh

I really like the texture of this lipstick, super creamy and pretty matte without drying out my lips. The packaging is beautiful. Like most lipsticks, it comes off really easily but its so pigmented that if a little comes off when you eat or drink, all you have to do is press your lips together and voile...lips are painted again. Treat yo self!

so not worth $40

Not sure if this was the color I bought, but I purchased this as an expensive treat because the brand is so well-known and revered. I mean, I really like supporting a black woman, but the formula really isn’t worth $40 and Im the poor one... My NARS lipsticks are much better. It’s drying and it transfers SO badly. Doesn’t stay on very long. Only positive things are the colors and the fact that it has a nice fade. You have to really like the fade, since the pigment disappears fast. Do not purchase unless you like wasting your money or you’re made of money (which is realistically no one). Spend your lipstick money on another brand.

This is such a unique formula! It's very lightweight and feels like nothing on the lips, but it's intensely pigmented and long-lasting. Like most lipsticks, it won't last through oily foods, but otherwise it lasts for hours without feeling drying. I don't know if I'd buy another color but I'm very happy with this one. The color description is very accurate, but it will pull more brown or rose depending on your skin tone.
