Pat McGrath Blitz Gold BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a glittering, sparkling finish. It seemed to have a mix of larger sparkle and micro-glitter with a translucent base, so it had more medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The base was rather emollient, and I found that as I tried to build up color, more product would pull into my lip lines and didn't go on as evenly as I would have liked, though it wasn't noticeable in person as there was so much shine ad and sparkle. The texture was noticeably glittery, so while it didn't tug on my lips, I could feel the edges of the glitter/sparkle as I applied it and certainly could feel/tell it was an overtly glittery product on my lips while worn. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating while worn.
