Executive Realness

Pat McGrath Executive Realness MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fantastic–full coverage in a single layer–that applied evenly and smoothly without tugging or dragging on my lips. It had a velvety, lightly creamy texture that was thicker but not heavy or difficult to work with, and the color seemed to smooth out most of my lip lines. This shade lasted for over seven hours on me, left a moderate pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

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.

Extravaganza

Pat McGrath Extravaganza MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep magenta with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had more shine than most of the MatteTrance shades, though it naturally wore down to a more matte finish within two hours of wear. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth with a touch more slip compared to other shades in the same formula. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and did not streak, but there was a bit of product that sat in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for over seven hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.
