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.
