Pros:Very unique true matte finish in a bullet lipstick, which I loveCons:This color is very flattering on so many people, but it washes me out a bit and I'm not sure when I would wear it.Overall: 4* - it's beautiful, it's pigmented, and it wears well. If you want a matte brick red, this is a very unique color. It is just not a color I turn to or particularly flatters me. I'm on the fence on if I would buy it again. I'd be willing to give it another try one day.

This was my first ever Pat McGrath purchase and let me say, this is my favourite eye shadow formula of all time. I used to be all about the mattes for my hooded eyes, but because of this formula, i've suddenly been converted to the complete opposite end of that spectrum. Don't get me wrong, her mattes are still excellent... great pigmentation but still blendable, but I wouldn't say they're as heads and tails better than other formulas on the market like her shimmer/glitters are. I could go either way between Natasha Denona's creamy mattes and pat's, but her other formulas, amazing and it's no contest with ND in my opinion.Of her full sized palettes, this colour story speaks to me the most. I did end up purchasing additional palettes after this one, including sublime and 2 mthrshp palettes, but this is still my favourite. I can't even describe how great the formula is, i dont experience a lot of fall out at all, though i usually use my fingers for the non-matte shades, but you still get this extra dimensional, multi-faceted goodness without the mess. I don't even know how to describe you, you just need to see it yourself. Would I recommend? Abso-freaking-lutely... if you can afford it. I had a $100CAD GC to Sephora before I could bring myself to actually dish out $170CAD on an eyeshadow palette... and I haven't purchased any Pat McGrath product without a discount at sephora to date, but let me tell you, I don't need to try any other shimmer/glitter formula ever for rest of my life and I would be content.

Matte Trance lipstick is probably the best matte lipstick out there. The formula feels great on the lips, the color layers well and is long wearing for a lipstick.My first lipstick was Vendetta and it is a very beautiful dark red. From that, my collection now includes the shades in her holiday collection. The nudes are beautiful as well as the pinks. Again, I do recommend the use of a lip liner and an exfoliated lip because it will enhance flakes on the lips, but I found that the the formula still glides on the lips. Another thing I love about this lipstick is the packaging it comes in. It is heavy, magnetic and the lips are super cute. Overall, this was a good purchase for me and I highly recommend this lipstick.

Pros:Incredible pigmentationIt's has a beautiful true matte textureCons: Dry texture Overall:4* - this is pretty flattering on me for such a bright shade, but it's the kind of shade I'd like some gloss to. The formulation overall is nice but can be dry.
