Electra

Pat McGrath Electra BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.)
is a rich, fiery red with warm, gold and copper sparkle and micro-glitter. It can look redder or more orange depending on the light and how it plays with all of the sparkle/glitter. The lipstick was richly pigmented with nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and it built up to full coverage with just a bit more to top off certain areas. The consistency was lightly creamy, fairly smooth, but I could detect the texture from all the sparkle in it. When I pressed my lips together, I knew I was wearing a sparkly lip product, but it did not feel rough or uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for five and a half hours and left a pink-red stain behind, while the formula felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.13 oz. - $292.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "one-stroke colour" with "ultra-reflective pearls" paired with a "silky" and "creamy" texture that yields "multi-dimensional shine." The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with more medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that "full coverage," and the amount of shimmer/glitter also varied significantly from to shade. For example, Blitz Trance has a very glittery look on the lips, whereas Flesh Fatale had a subtle, sparkling finish. They had a lot of shine, though, with being wet in feel or all that glossy, which seemed to linger for longer than the average lipstick--the shine didn't immediately dull after taking a sip of something or talking for a few minutes.

The consistency was lightly creamy with moderate slip, but it didn't feel too thick or heavy, so the color didn't slide around on my lips and adhered evenly for the most part. Shades that were more glittery felt that way in the tube as I applied them to my lips with the glitter being less noticeable on my lips, though those who may be more sensitive to glitter may find it at least somewhat apparent--at the very least, this formulation is not disguising the texture of all that sparkly goodness. They were lightly to moderately hydrating, comfortable to wear, and lasted between three and five hours. I feel like the best way to sum these up as: they're sparkling and luminous with medium, buildable color payoff that lasts an average length of time. They did not have any scent or taste from what I could tell!

Now that Pat McGrath has steadily fleshed out her range (and is having a sale–you can get 25% off sitewide at Pat McGrath with code VIP25, beginning 12/3 and ending 12/11!), let’s take a look at what some of the best products have been to-date! I was originally going to cut the list at 50 but found that some of the popular products/palettes would be MIA and figured I’d leave it at the full list so you can easily look up a particular product.

I’m most enamored with the Mothership/MTHRSHP eyeshadow palettes, the latter of which I feel are more approachable, more consistent, and more foolproof.  The larger Motherships work best when following the brand’s guidance on how to use each shades (some are sheerer on purpose, some should be used with a dampened brush or fingertip, etc.).  Over time, I have ultimately enjoyed all of the Motherships, particularly when pairing them with the coordinated MTHRSHP palettes released.  For me, when I work with Pat McGrath eyeshadows into a look, they always sing–the final result leaves me feeling over the moon with the results.

I personally prefer the LuxeTrance formula over the MatteTrance lipsticks, as I like a little sheen to my lip color, and I find that they sit exceptionally well on my lips but both are fabulous formulas.  You can also see what products I’ve specifically given “Temptalia Recommends” seals to here.

Pat McGrath Opulence Collection is another winning launch by the brand with three highly-rated eyeshadow palettes and the specially-packaged lipsticks (all part of the permanent range) were fairly consistent with their permanent counterparts. I’m partial to the palettes, since those are limited edition, with my favorite being Subversive Metalmorphosis followed by Sublime Bronze Temptation.

Omi

Pat McGrath Omi MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, which went on evenly and fluidly. It had a smooth, velvety consistency that was lightly creamy but not slippery on my lips, so it adhered well for longer wear. It stayed on well for just shy of the five-hour mark and was neither hydrating nor drying on me. It performed consistently with the regularly-packaged version.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “richly pigmented” with “”supreme hydration” and “opulent matte opacity.” The consistency was smooth, velvety, and dense without being too firm for one-stroke, glide-on application (I found the original shades to be slightly firmer compared to more newly released shades). They had nearly opaque to opaque coverage in one layer and most were buildable.

They had a subtle sheen--more satin-to-cream in finish--that wore down to a natural matte finish within an hour or two of wear. The formula lasted between four and eight hours on me, and while most weren't drying, they aren't "supreme[ly" hydrating either. They are, however, comfortable to wear over a longer period of time and reapply well. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula.
