Pat McGrath Venomistress OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and fine plum and violet shimmer and sparkle. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which could have applied a bit more evenly.
The texture was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to spread out across my lips as the shimmer dispersed fairly well. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deepest lip line but didn't seem apparent when I looked for it in person (just in the close-up photo). It wore nicely for five hours and was hydrating over time.
