Pat McGrath Nude Venus is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium beige with a luminous finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Pat McGrath Nude Venus Divinyl Lip Shine ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a very light, peachy coral with moderate, warm undertones and very fine, golden pearl strewn through a creamier base. The texture was lightweight, thin, and balm-like with a touch of creaminess that became more apparent as the warmth of my lips warmed up the product, but it looked shinier than it felt with respect to slip.
It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly but had a tendency to sink into my deeper lip lines and emphasized imperfections somewhat. It stayed on well for three hours and felt moderately hydrating over time.

Blazing and brilliant, this decadent hybrid shines with a divine, mirror-esque level of reflection: a high-gloss finish never before captured in a lip balm. Antioxidant lychee extract and rich coconut butter deliver the benefits of a lip-treatment mask in a light-as-air, sensuously-soft lip-soothing formula, leaving lips looking smooth and plumped. Dressed in a pink couture-chrome case.
