Here are all eight shades of Pat McGrath OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) ranked from best to worst!

The formula is supposed to “seamlessly glide” onto lips with “multidimensional sparkle with a smooth, non-sticky finish” that has a “shimmering, move-resistant glasslike finish” and “otherworldly opacity.” The pigmentation varied from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with most shades applying evenly and having good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle. I think where the glosses stood out was with their texture; they were very smooth, like a plusher cream-gel with minimal tackiness, so they were comfortable and had decent longevity.

What’s really important about these lip glosses is that they are not tacky and comfortable to wear. Glowing Garnet and Bronze Seductress are my favourites.

I wish Sephora carried all of the colors. It figures the ones I like are only on Pat’s site and I’ve been avoiding it because no one needs black Easter grass packaging! That stuff’s a mess!

I’m very happy with my 2 that I bought this past week. Glowing Garnet is definitely a glowering molton red! And Dreamscape is perfect as a golden copper glitter topper over a nude lipstick.

The forumla sounds and looks lovely, but none of the shades are catching my eye, so money saved I guess! Maybe if they release minis in the future.

I have no experience with these glosses but like the swatches. Is it too much to hope that the set of 8 is $30.00? Seems to good to be true.

I bought all of them and am truly disappointed. The formula is exactly like the Stellar lipglosses, which is not my favorite, and they are patchy going on.
