Pat McGrath Valetta is a very warm-toned, light-medium pink with a cream finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Pat McGrath Valetta LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good color payoff that covered the lips fairly well, but this shade seemed to pull away more at my lip lines and had very slight streaking along the edges of my lips. I don't think either of those flaws were too noticeable in person. I also found that it applied and appeared lighter on my lips than initially swatched on my arm (whereas most of the shades in the line are similar swatched on the skin and on lips, often going slightly darker on the lips). The consistency was creamy and had more slip than most of the LuxeTrance shades I've tried. It was comfortable to wear, lasted for four and a half hours, and was hydrating over time.
