Exxotica

Pat McGrath Exxotica LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, dark purple with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was lightly creamy with slight slip but not enough to feel slippery on the lips, which allowed the color to adhere well and last for over seven hours on me. The formula was hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.14 oz. - $285.71 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.

She's So Deep

Pat McGrath She’s So Deep LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, red-toned brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a touch more product (only needed in places). The lipstick felt very lightweight but had a light-medium thick consistency that sat well on the lips and applied without dragging or tugging on my lips. It wore well for eight hours and was moisturizing over time.

Gorgeous plush shades that LAST! Man, I want them both….but will hold off until I’ve used up a good amount of my tube of UD Troublemaker before I go in for Exxotica first. I think that She’s So Deep would possibly be too brown toned for me, and could give my skin a full, sallow look. But, I do see it as being a stunning nude lip for deep skintones!

So even though I am significantly cutting back on my makeup purchases this year, that doesn’t include PML lip products. I am so in love with this formula and want to get all of the shades that I think will work for me and I think Exxotica will. I love the name of these products and so far feel like she has chosen really nice names for her lippies.

I am a makeup fanatic and I moved earlier this year. All of my makeup was lost (or stolen) in the move. Thousands of dollars worth of good cosmetics. I miss them all. šŸ™
Iā€™m thinking about investing in these Luxetrance lipsticks as a replacement. I have followed your reviews with great interest. They look worth pursuing.

I had my sales goggles on and bought She’s So Deep with the Ground Control lip liner and wow, it’s dark! Lol, I love it on you, I hope I can pull it off- it’s def out of my usual comfort zone. Thanks for the awesome review!

These are really nice deep shades! Thankfully I know I have a dupe for Exxotica, but not so sure about She’s So Deep. I might just have a dupe in my wishlist for it though.
