Pat McGrath Noir is a moderately cool-toned, very light sheer with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lip balm that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Pat McGrath Noir Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a translucent black with a luminous sheen and very, very faint shimmer. The texture was lightweight, balm-like--emollient with some slip--but it was thinner, so it didn't feel slippery on, which helped it wear longer, though it wasn't the longest-wearing product.
It had very sheer coverage, and while it was described as being sheer and the formula is intended to be sheer, this seemed to be a little under even that--almost translucent. Ultimately, the effect is that will darken one's natural lip color. It may appear different based on one's natural lip color--for me, it gives a slightly warm, plummy vibe. It wore well for two and a half hours and was moderately hydrating over time.
