Pat McGrath Skin Fetish 003 Review

This is my very first Pat McGrath Labs purchase... yea!! I was so excited to when Sephora pre-released this to all the VIP Rouge members early.  It sold out within minutes of being released. This trio cost $70 and is also sold on her website. There were two versions of this Highlighter/Balm/Pigment which is formally called Skin Fetish 003 in Golden, the other color was Skin Fetish 002 in Nude. There are many ways to wear this trio which contains the Balm, the Highlighter and the Pigment. I made a short 2 minute swatch video highlighting how it is supposed to be applied swatched on my arm.
This beautiful iridescent highlighter is described as a fine gold pigment which can be used alone or amplified by applying it over the dual-end shiny stick which contains a clear balm and a golden highlighter. The packaging for the pigment is made out of very cheap plastic.  I thought I was going to break the top trying to open it.  It's not sturdy at all and I think if I were to drop the pigment on a hard surface, the plastic lid will crack or come flying off leaving me with a crumbled pigment.
This dual-ended shiny stick contains a lustrous golden highlighter on one end and a beautifying clear balm on the other.  both can be worn individually or together, applying the balm first, then the golden highlighter on top to amplify the color.  You can take the color to the next level by applying all three items right after the other layering the iridescent pigment on top. Also in the package, which I forgot to photograph, was a synthetic buffer brush which wasn't very impressive.

I started out on the far right by applying just the skin fetish 003 iridescent pigment. Then in the middle I swatched just the golden highlighter by itself.  Then on the far left I swatched the clear balm, then applied the golden highlighter then applied the iridescent pigment on top.

The package contained thousands of tiny golden confetti which creates a mess when you open the package if you're not careful!
