Pat McGrath Amethyst Astral is a moderately cool-toned, light lavender with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent lip balm that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Pat McGrath Amethyst Astral Lip Fetish Astral Lip Balm ($36.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a more translucent base with iridescent, blue and violet micro-shimmer and larger sparkle particles. There was sheer coverage, which was as anticipated based on the brand's claims, and this particular shade lightened my natural lip color while adding a shine and sparkle to them.
There was good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle for an all-over sparkling finish. It had a lightweight, balmy consistency that was emollient with fair amount of slip but was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over the three hours it lasted for.
Uniting supernova shimmer with sublime hydration, Lip Fetish Astral is the ultimate secret weapon for lethally luminous lips. In a single swipe, each lethally luxe shade adorns lips in celestial dewiness and out-of-this-world softness. Enclosed in a provocatively prismatic case.
