Pat McGrath wants your lips to B-O-L-D this holiday season. On Nov. 16, her cult-status makeup brand, Pat McGrath Labs, launches its newest limited-edition lip kits. LiquiLUST 007 comes in two sets with three shades of matte liquid lipstick in each — a bright colors set and a nudes set — plus a fine crystalline powder and clear gloss, so you can do two different finishes in matte or IRL Kirakira shine. If you’re counting that means 12 new lip looks for your party circuit this season. You can also get everything in one epic nine-piece set. Smashing.

“The spirit of the holiday season, for me, is mesmerizing magic, sublime sparkle and the chance to pout, provoke, and pose at the year’s best parties,” McGrath said in her press release. In other words: shine bright, my friends.

HOW TO APPLY

First, line lips with the pointed tip of the doe-foot applicator. The formula is a thick cream that doesn’t slip and slide, so you can have ample grip to line precisely.

Next, use the flat end of the applicator to fill in your lips. The liquid lipstick takes just one swipe—this is as high pigment as it gets.

NUDE GLOSSES

After adding the finely milled sparkly powder on top (just use your finger to dap on — that’s how the pros on Pat’s team do it!) and sealing it in with the gloss, the warm nude tones become golden and gleaming.
