Pat McGrath Dark Devotion, Ultra Vixen, Flesh 3 Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm Reviews & Swatches

Dark Devotion

Pat McGrath Dark Devotion Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had a lightweight, thinner consistency that was smooth and lightly emollient but not slippery on my lips. It had sheer coverage, which didn’t apply as evenly as I would have liked it to have, as it made areas of my lips look deeper than others. This shade lasted well for four hours, had a bit of a stain left behind, and was moisturizing to wear.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.12 oz. – $316.67 Per Ounce

The new Sheer Colour finish on the Lip Fetish Lip Balm formula is designed to have a “tease of color” with a “lightweight veil of hydration.” The balm has a smooth consistency that glided across my lips without tugging but did not feel overly slippery or wet like some balm-like formulations can. I felt like this made it easier to apply them evenly and had them wear decently–anywhere from two to four hours–and I found that a couple of them stained my lips lightly (most notably, Passion Flower looked significantly pinker on my lips, and it also stained my hand pink when I tried swatching it again to verify!). I found the formula to be moderately moisturizing with coverage that ranged from sheer to medium with the deeper shades having more noticeable color and coverage. I didn’t detect any scent or taste to these.

Ultra Vixen

Pat McGrath Ultra Vixen Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough to glide on but thin to prevent it from feeling slippery on. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating to wear.

Flesh 3

Pat McGrath Flesh 3 Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium plum with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage–this was one of the more pigmented shades in the range, which may be a happy “downside” for some. The lip balm felt smooth and glided easily across my lips but didn’t feel overly slippery or “wet” when applied, so it stayed in place well for four hours. The formula was moisturizing while worn.
