Donatella

Pat McGrath Donatella LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, rosy beige with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke, which delivered even, smooth coverage across the lips. There was slight settling along the center of my bottom lip, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (which is where it matters most!). The texture was smooth, velvety, and comfortable to wear with just enough slip to glide on with ease but not enough for the color to slide around while worn. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating while worn–fairly impressive for this type of color.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "intense color payoff" with "comfort" and "rich hydration" that has a "satiny sheen." Of the shades I've tried, they are richly pigmented, long-wearing, incredibly comfortable to wear from start to finish, hydrating, and generally flattering on the lips. The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide across the lips with ease but never felt slippery or too clingy. Most shades performed exceptionally well, and while pricey, they at least lived up to a lot of the claims. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Realness

Pat McGrath Realness LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and the lipstick applied evenly and smoothly directly from the tube. It never showed “lines” when I pressed my lips despite being creamy enough to skate across the lips easily. The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and “clung” to lips for excellent wear time but never in a drying way, as the formula was moderately moisturizing over the five and a half hours it lasted for.

Valetta

Pat McGrath Valetta LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good color payoff that covered the lips fairly well, but this shade seemed to pull away more at my lip lines and had very slight streaking along the edges of my lips. I don’t think either of those flaws were too noticeable in person. I also found that it applied and appeared lighter on my lips than initially swatched on my arm (whereas most of the shades in the line are similar swatched on the skin and on lips, often going slightly darker on the lips). The consistency was creamy and had more slip than most of the LuxeTrance shades I’ve tried. It was comfortable to wear, lasted for four and a half hours, and was hydrating over time.
