Pat McGrath Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is designed to have a “tease of color” with a “lightweight veil of hydration.” The balm has a smooth consistency that glided across my lips without tugging but did not feel overly slippery or wet like some balm-like formulations can. I felt like this made it easier to apply them evenly and had them wear decently–anywhere from two to four hours–and I found that a couple of them stained my lips lightly (most notably, Passion Flower looked significantly pinker on my lips, and it also stained my hand pink when I tried swatching it again to verify!). I found the formula to be moderately moisturizing with coverage that ranged from sheer to medium with the deeper shades having more noticeable color and coverage. I didn’t detect any scent or taste to these.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

They finally got PMG at the Sephora that’s about 40 minutes away from me, so I got to swatch the products for the first time! These lipsticks are very nice, but there wasn’t one that was a must-have.

My picks are Wild Cherry and Flesh 3, but I’ll only indulge in one for the time being. Trying to imagine which one would most effortlessly work with the Mothership V theme…🤔

A friend got me one of these. They left a weird fuzzy feeling in my mouth almost immediately. So… I can’t properly test it out since it seems I’m allergic to something in them. That said, for the time I did have it on, it felt very very VERY (did I say very?) similar to the clinique chubby sticks.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
