Buy It Or Pass: Pat McGrath Labs Lipstick Review

What’s the one beauty product that every girl needs and/or could benefit from in their everyday life? There are about two or three that come to mind immediately, but if I only get one it’s lipstick! Even a non-makeup lover can appreciate the beauty of what lipstick does for even the most basic look. However, I’m not here to talk about basic today, I am here to discuss Pat McGrath Labs Lipsticks.

The lipsticks made their debut last year when Pat McGrath’s permanent collection was launched. There is a matte formula, MatteTrance, and a creamy formula, LuxeTrance.

Claims & Hype About The Product

Both products are made with high-quality ingredients and have unique formula’s, which has created lots of buzz around these lipsticks. This has also caused many of the highly coveted colors to be consistently sold out! At a whopping $38 a tube that’s saying a lot! Here is the product information per the Pat McGrath Labs website…

LuxeTrance Lipstick

LuxeTranceLipstick – “Lavishly laminate lips with sensuously saturated color while providing rich hydration and protection from free radicals. Each signature shade offers every complexion a personalized couture look. Water Lily extract offers hydrating and protecting properties.”

MatteTrance Lipstick

MatteTrance Lipstick – “A revolutionary lipstick so luxurious and richly pigmented, it drenches lips in a lightweight veil of opaque color while delivering a mesmerizingly modern matte finish. Formulated with optical diffusers that blur the appearance of imperfections.”

Thoughts…Buy It or Pass

This lipstick is bae! If you are a lipstick lover it is a must-have in both formulas. I love everything about it – the colors are gorgeous, the pigment is insane, and the formulas are excellent. Both have provided me with fantastic staying power. I also like the fact that I can make my looks big & bold or sheer them down.

The MatteTrance is one of the best mattes on the market. It feels very creamy and bouncy on the lips. I would also like to mention the creamy formula gives off more of a silky-finish on the lips.

So my recommendation is to definitely purchase it!


  • The formulas are top notch and full of quality ingredients
  • Richly pigmented for excellent color payoff
  • The packaging is gorgeous


  • It’s very pricey for lipstick. However, it is a luxury product so keep that in mind.
  • The popular colors sell out quickly and are hard to get.


Until soon…Toodles
