Pat Mc Grath LuxeTrance lipstick in “Realness”
I had seen these lipsticks floating around social media for a good while, but with them being on the pricier side of things, I never pulled the trigger and got one to try.
However, during their Black Friday sale, the price came down to only $10 (normally $40), and I knew that was my chance! This was one of the few shades they had left (I was late to the party) but I’m glad I got it!
Here are my thoughts:
- It’s a pretty warm pinky light-tone nude kind of shade. I do feel like it’s slightly lighter than I normally like – but using a slightly darker lip liner first fixes that issue.
- It’s very pigmented.
- It has a comfortable satin finish.
- The shape of the bullet tip makes it very easy to control exactly where I’m applying it and follow the shape I want.
- The only negative I can list is that if your lips are dry and/or chapped, this will definitely emphasize it. So I recommend you use a lip scrub 😊
Here is my swatch: (keep in mind my skintone is fair neutral, and it may look different when applied on other skintones)
Overall, I think this is a beautiful lipstick, which also feels luxurious – However I can’t justify the regular retail price, so I will only purchase more shades when there is a good sale.
❓What’s the best makeup deal you got this past holiday season?
I think this was mine!
❤️I hope you’re all enjoying your week and staying warm!
