Passion Flower

Pat McGrath Passion Flower Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It appeared like a lighter, peachy-coral in the tube, but it was significantly pinker swatched as well as on, and it left a strong, pink stain behind (on my arm as well as my lips). It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. It had a lightweight consistency that was lightly creamy but not thin or too slippery on my lips, though it wasn’t as smoothing as other shades in the range. The color stayed on well for four hours and was hydrating while I wore it.

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.12 oz. - $333.33 Per Ounce

The new Sheer Colour finish on the Lip Fetish Lip Balm formula is designed to have a "tease of color" with a "lightweight veil of hydration." The balm has a smooth consistency that glided across my lips without tugging but did not feel overly slippery or wet like some balm-like formulations can.

I felt like this made it easier to apply them evenly and had them wear decently--anywhere from two to four hours--and I found that a couple of them stained my lips lightly (most notably, Passion Flower looked significantly pinker on my lips, and it also stained my hand pink when I tried swatching it again to verify!).

I found the formula to be moderately moisturizing with coverage that ranged from sheer to medium with the deeper shades having more noticeable color and coverage. I didn't detect any scent or taste to these.

Full Fantasy

Pat McGrath Full Fantasy Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly on my bottom lip but didn’t seem to adhere as evenly to my upper lip. The texture was lightly creamy, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear. It wore well for four and a half hours on me, left a slight stain behind, and was moisturizing over time.

Wild Cherry

Pat McGrath Wild Cherry Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied fairly evenly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, thin without benig clingy, and had a light creaminess to it that helped it glide across my lips with ease but not enough that it felt slippery on my lips while worn. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and left a very faint stain behind. The formula felt hydrating over time.

I had a feeling that Wild Cherry was going to be a winner! And it did not fail to deliver, especially the 4 ½ hour wear time for a sheerer balmy lipstick! Obviously, I’m getting this particular shade, right? 😉

I have both Passion flower and wild cherry and really love them. They feel so emollient and give me just the right amount of color. I wish she made a purple plummy color! Would buy it in a heartbeat. They’re aRe pricey but they feel amazing on and the packaging is worth it to me
