Pat McGrath Guinevere is a moderately warm-toned, dark red with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Guinevere is a deep red with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had a more noticeable sheen to it compared to other shades and also compared to the last tube I tried of this shade, though it was quick to wear down to a more velvet-matte finish within an hour or two (or blot once lightly). It had opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to my lips without tugging. The lipstick had a lightweight, velvety consistency that was comfortable to wear. This shade lasted well for over six hours and felt slightly hydrating over time.
