Here to perfect and upgrade the classic smokey eye to something a lot more special, the latest launch from make-up genius Pat McGrath is a 7-piece kit. 'Dark Star 006' matches the intense pigment and premium quality of the previous beauty launches from Pat McGrath Labs including her first solo foray, 'Gold 001' and the cult 'Metalmorphosis 005' collection. Described as a "tech-noir smokey eye kit for intergalactic glamour" the Global Beauty Creative Design Director of Procter & Gamble tapped Kim Kardashian West as the #McGrathMuse for this collection, announced via Instagram this week. It's not the first time the pair have teamed up, McGrath initially teased her highlighter, 'Skin Fetish 003' via Kim's app in March last year before it went live on her website.

Set to hubby Kanye West's song "Street Lights," the video features Kim admiring her reflection with Cher-esque poker straight locks and applying some of the multi-dimensional eyeshadow powder to her lids, creating a strong, almost holographic-looking look, (hence the "intergalactic glamour").
