Amethyst Astral

Pat McGrath Amethyst Astral Lip Fetish Astral Lip Balm ($36.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a more translucent base with iridescent, blue and violet micro-shimmer and larger sparkle particles. There was sheer coverage, which was as anticipated based on the brand’s claims, and this particular shade lightened my natural lip color while adding a shine and sparkle to them.

There was good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle for an all-over sparkling finish. It had a lightweight, balmy consistency that was emollient with fair amount of slip but was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over the three hours it lasted for.

Rose Quartz Astral

Pat McGrath Rose Quartz Astral Lip Fetish Astral Lip Balm ($36.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a darker, plummy-pink with flecks of lighter pink, gold, and lavender sparkle throughout a glossier, more luminous finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage, which was in line with the brand’s description, which applied smoothly across my lips as it had an emollient, more melt-on-your-mouth kind of texture. I could feel the added sparkles slightly when I pressed my lips together.

The product itself was still firm enough that it didn’t feel like it was easy to waste product, though, but I’m glad it’s in a slimmer tube (even if that means less product) so it doesn’t have the opportunity to tilt. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, which was noticeable in the close-up photo but not from a normal viewing distance in person. Additionally, the shimmer and sparkle reflected a lot more light, which masked minor imperfections. It wore well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Thank you for proper colour representation of Rose Quartz blitz. The swatches on PMG website are entirely misleading. I saw photos of the bullet and photos of the models and I was scratching my head. They are both pretty, but not enough for me to feel good about splurging.

I’ve definitely been wearing more lip balms now that I’m wearing a mask every time I go out so these would be right up my alley. On another note though, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you without eye makeup on, you are such a natural beauty Christine!

Since I totally missed out on MAC VG IV before it got DC’d, I may really need to go for Rose Quartz Astral. In fact, I think I like RQA even better!

These look beautiful on you, and it’s a beautiful look with the bare eyes! I’m definitely eyeing the Pat McGrath 25% off campaign.
