Pat McGrath Rebel Red & Flesh Fatale BlitzTrance Lipstick Reviews & Swatches

Rebel Red

Pat McGrath Rebel Red BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with cool undertones and a sparkling, shiny finish. It had a mix of brighter, fuchsia sparkle and more tone-on-tone ruby red sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though it seemed a little splotchy along my lower inner lip area. The consistency was as smooth as I’d expect for a glittery lipstick, but I could feel some of the sparkle/glitter in it as I applied as well as when I wore the color. What was most impressive with the formula was how shiny it was and how long that shine stayed on for as often the shine wears down, but it was both sparkling and shiny with a “wet” look, despite not being slippery on. It wore well for almost six hours, barely left a reddish stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.13 oz. – $292.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “one-stroke colour” with “ultra-reflective pearls” paired with a “silky” and “creamy” texture that yields “multi-dimensional shine.” The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with more medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that “full coverage,” and the amount of shimmer/glitter also varied significantly from to shade. For example, Blitz Trance has a very glittery look on the lips, whereas Flesh Fatale had a subtle, sparkling finish. They had a lot of shine, though, with being wet in feel or all that glossy, which seemed to linger for longer than the average lipstick–the shine didn’t immediately dull after taking a sip of something or talking for a few minutes.

The consistency was lightly creamy with moderate slip, but it didn’t feel too thick or heavy, so the color didn’t slide around on my lips and adhered evenly for the most part. Shades that were more glittery felt that way in the tube as I applied them to my lips with the glitter being less noticeable on my lips, though those who may be more sensitive to glitter may find it at least somewhat apparent–at the very least, this formulation is not disguising the texture of all that sparkly goodness. They were lightly to moderately hydrating, comfortable to wear, and lasted between three and five hours. I feel like the best way to sum these up as: they’re sparkling and luminous with medium, buildable color payoff that lasts an average length of time. They did not have any scent or taste from what I could tell!

Flesh Fatale

Pat McGrath Flesh Fatale BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, reddish-copper with warm undertones and gold and pink pearl and larger sparkle. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that glided across my lips fluidly without tugging. I wouldn’t describe it as “full coverage,” and the formula has enough creaminess to it that over-applying can result in product getting into lip lines. This shade had noticeable shimmer and sparkle, but it wasn’t the most sparkly shade in the range (which may or may not be your cup of tea). I found it had lots of shine that was visibly apparent for hours (including through drinking a cup of tea) and only started to wear down at the four-hour mark (and it lasted for about five hours on me). The formula felt comfortable and was hydrating to wear.
