Pat McGrath Astral Blue Star is a neutral-toned, very light sheer with a natural finish. It is a limited edition lip balm that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Pat McGrath Astral Blue Star Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) has a translucent base with fine, barely-there iridescent pearl that flashed between silver and blue. It had just a dusting of pearl, so it had a subtle twinkle with a glossier finish, but I wouldn't go so far as to call it "glittering" (as it is described).
It did not seem to have a tint--it just added shine and faint shimmer to my lips but no tint (and these are supposed to have some tint!). For someone who likes the idea of shimmer but doesn't like a lot of it, it might work to that effect. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and comfortable to wear; it also seemed to smooth out some of my lip lines, which was nice to see. It stayed on well for two and a half hours and was moderately moisturizing over time.
