This eyepencil is let's say, a holy grail, it's all what the name suggest: it don't budge at all once you draw the line it stays there from morning to night, it glides like magic and it's a very true black, amazing pigmentation. I tried it on my upperlid and it stayed there forever, even when I slightly touch it after it set it didn't transfer at all. I didn't try my waterline. It's removed easily with any facial wash or makeup remover. An excellent product ! It comes in a beautiful package with a sharpener.

I tried the deep burgundy shade. It changed color on me in an uneven way...parts of my lip were bright red after not even an hour. It didn't wear very well and was patchy and drying. It looked like a Revlon matte lipstick I remember trying from back in the day (80s or 90s) when they started with the whole Colorstay thing. At the same time, I found it smearing off everywhere including on my face and on my teeth. I hate to be the sole dissenter here because I know she has a following, but I just didnt like this at all. I wouldn't like it at any price, but at $38 it's a definite no way for me.

I bought two of these based on hype- Realness and Madame Greige. I like the colors, and I like the formula, but the hype is lost on me. It's just lipstick. My favorite lipstick formula right now is the Hourglass Confession lipstick formula, which is an awful shame because for the amount of product you get in the tube, it's robbery. Had these LuxeTrance lipsticks compared in formula, I would buy way too many of them! Madame Greige is actually going back to Sephora because on my lips, it's nearly identical to Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in Thistle, a formula I highly prefer. I'd call the LuxeTrance lipsticks a satin to demi-matte finish, more matte than I was expecting, honestly, though I've yet to try the MatteTrance formula to compare. Realness is a keeper for me, based on color alone. It's a gorgeous MLBB type shade. Warmer than my favorite MLBB, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, it's not quite a rosewood shade, it's lighter and less red, it's actually a pink brown shade that I don't currently have a dupe for, which is funny considering that's the largest chunk of my 400+ lipstick collection. I haven't decided if I want to try more of the McGrath lipsticks or not. I know I'm uninterested in more from the Luxetrance line unless a color just knocks my socks off. Maybe once the MatteTrance colors are back in stock, I'll pick one up to compare and I'll understand the hype THEN. But for now, my preferences on formula still go to Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass Confession, Estee Lauder Pure Envy Sculpting, Bite Amuse Bouche, MAC Satin (and some of their mattes- not Retro matte, though!) and Urban Decay Vice.

I love Pat McGrath Labs Lust MatteTrance in Elson. I find Elson to be a true red or close enough to one. It looks amazing on me but I already love red lipstick anyway and always have. Those lipsticks are pricey mostly because if the heavy, good quality and very pretty packaging but at least the formula appears to last about 90 to 95% on the lips WITHOUT any lip liner on after eating a lot of pasta and a small salad with oily vinaigrette on it. The formula also feels quite comfortable on my lips for a matte formula and also feels very lightweight. Pat McGrath Labs Lust MatteTrance have no scent and no flavor. I bought the Colour Blitz trio so I have Obsessed and Full Panic as well. I also have McMenamy. I keep trying to buy the lovely medium reddish brown color called Flesh 3 but it's always sold out everywhere. I have also recently bought three of the Lust LuxeTrance lipsticks.I will keep buying the Pat McGrath Labs Lust MatteTrance lipsticks until kingdom come. I am OBSESSED indeed!I wear Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Seychelles.

I bought both of the highlighter sets when they were released on Sephora. I've tried multiple times to get these highlighters to work for me and I can't do it. I original saw these highlighters in person when I went to a Miss Fame makeup class in Los Angeles. He had them before the release date and had passed around the pressed highlighters and I fell in love. They looked so cool. The pink shade had a gorgeous halographic sheen to it. Of course, I didn't swatch it, it wasn't mine, so I went by how it looked in the pan. The sets came with a brush, highlighter, and a double ended highlighter stick. One end of the stick is just clear gloss that you can layer the pressed highlighter over. The other end had a cream highlighter. I'm super pale and these didn't even show up on me. The brush is cheap and I couldn't use it to apply highlighter. The bristles are too loose and it didn't pick up product. The packaging overall is cheap, for the price, I would have rather had less products that were good than a bunch of subpar items I never use. Everything came in a bag filled with sequins. It's a cool concept but it just made a mess and I tried to keep the sequins and repurpose them but I never did. I ended up throwing them out after about a year. It irritates me that none of these products worked for me. I don't mind spending money if the products deliver. I'm surprised by the good amount of reviews. I guess I just couldn't get them to work for me and I've tried for a long time.
