Pat McGrath Rebel Red BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with cool undertones and a sparkling, shiny finish. It had a mix of brighter, fuchsia sparkle and more tone-on-tone ruby red sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though it seemed a little splotchy along my lower inner lip area. The consistency was as smooth as I'd expect for a glittery lipstick, but I could feel some of the sparkle/glitter in it as I applied as well as when I wore the color. What was most impressive with the formula was how shiny it was and how long that shine stayed on for as often the shine wears down, but it was both sparkling and shiny with a "wet" look, despite not being slippery on. It wore well for almost six hours, barely left a reddish stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.
