Pat McGrath Antidote MatteTrance Lipsticks ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, magenta purple with warmer, pink undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a creamy, moderately slippery texture that did not adhere well to the inner area of my lip. The color gathered in my lip lines while I wore it, unfortunately. The lipstick stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a pink stain behind, and felt lightly drying.

The formula is supposed to be “richly pigmented” with “”supreme hydration” and “opulent matte opacity.” It’s a denser, firmer formula that takes a second to warm up against the lips, so the very first pull of the lipstick on the lips tugs slightly but then maneuvers smoothly across the lips without skipping or dragging. The lipstick was thicker on the lips, which ensured richer coverage and helped smooth out the texture of my lips but was less forgiving along the edges. For some of the deeper shades, I would recommend using a lip pencil or a lip brush to ensure crisper lines. For an hour or two, the majority of the shades had more of a satin finish that became more matte as the shine wore down. The wear was between four to eight hours and none felt hydrating over time for me; a few were non-drying while others were noticeably drying. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula.

McMenamy

Pat McGrath McMenamy MatteTrance Lipsticks ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep burgundy with warm, red undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and a more emollient consistency that gave it a stronger sheen and greater translucency compared to other shades. The lipstick was creamier and more slip, and it appeared almost grainy on the lips, rather than smooth and velvety like the other shades. It lasted for well over six hours, gathered in my lip lines over time, left a stain behind, but was moderately drying.

Deep Void

Pat McGrath Deep Void MatteTrance Lipsticks ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep purple with subtle, cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had moderate slip, which gave it the shine, and it was quite creamy as it went on so it never tugged. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though this was not one of the better shades in the range. The color lasted for over six hours and left a stain behind but was on the drying side.
