Bronze Seductress

Pat McGrath Bronze Seductress OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, deeper copper with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold, copper, and pink sparkle and shimmer throughout. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with good dispersion of the shimmer.

The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and like a plush cream-gel hybrid, as it felt substantial and cushion-like but wasn’t too thick nor was it tacky; it was thick enough that I didn’t feel any of the shimmer/sparkle when I pressed my lips together. It wore nicely for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.15 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

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 depending on the shade, and "otherworldly opacity" combined with the brand's promotional images and swatches all points in the direction of "pigmented'," and I think there are at least a couple of shades that were designed as sheerer on purpose but lack any description suggesting they were different than other shades in the range.

The texture was smooth, mostly non-sticky, and comfortable to wear with a plush, cream-gel feel, so it was more substantial but not heavy to wear at all. Each shade packed a very high-shine, ultra-metallic look that never felt gritty or textured from all of the included sparkle/shimmer. I had very light to subtle settling into my lip lines with a few shades, though not enough to be noticeable in person. They wore between four and five hours on average, and the formula was hydrating to wear. I didn't find that there was much in the way of shimmer/sparkle migration over time (beyond my lips). The formula had a sweet, creme brulee scent to me but no discernible taste.

Naked Rose

Pat McGrath Naked Rose OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and flecks of pink, gold, and peach shimmer and sparkle throughout that gave it a high-shine, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with an even distribution of shimmer/sparkle as well.

The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, though definitely lighter-weight, so it was comfortable to wear and the texture of all the shimmer didn’t come through. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable in person. This shade stayed on well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Both are STUNNING! My personal face is Naked Rose. The other day I was having quite a time trying to decide between this one and Glowing Garnet. GG won out this time around. Naked Rose is next!

What is the very peachy one that is in all of their ads?! I have looked at all of the shades and cannot figure it out! I did order a mini nude trio of hers off of Sephora-the glosses-and figured I’d try those before delving into these.

I’m glad you can’t feel the glitter on your lips when wearing these glosses. They look real pretty. PMG makes my favorite lip glosses. I brought the Skin Show trio that includes Naked Rose but I want some of the deeper shades too eventually.
