Pat McGrath Extravaganza is a very cool-toned, medium-dark berry with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Pat McGrath Extravaganza MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep magenta with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had more shine than most of the MatteTrance shades, though it naturally wore down to a more matte finish within two hours of wear. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth with a touch more slip compared to other shades in the same formula. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and did not streak, but there was a bit of product that sat in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn't noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for over seven hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.
