Friyay! The week is finally over and relaxation time is just a few hours away. This heat and humidity is no joke! And they say global warming does’t exist, ha! For this kind of Summer we need makeup that will not disappear or smudge or melt away and Pat McGrath’s new Matte Trance lipstick collection is here and with staying power!

Nine entrancing lip colors that satisfy with supreme hydration and opulent matte opacity. Flaunt your fixations with this radiant, richly pigmented formulation that saturates lips in a lightweight veil of rich color. These lipsticks lay down high impact color with a strong finish. Sensually creamy, they’re infused with powerful pigments that evoke screen siren glamour with every application. Each shade is presented like a jewel in a black-lacquered couture case fashioned with a sensually surrealist golden lip that’s destined to be a cult-status collectible.MatteTrance Lipsticks are formulated with optical diffusers that blur the appearance of imperfections, while a blend of polymers provide flexibility and adherence. The advanced formulation of spherical particles ensures a creamy soft texture for the smoothest film of color. It’s enmeshed in a powder film combined with saturated pigment for lightweight opaque coverage.

The shades are:
OMI (107) – mid-tone rose
1995 (108) – warm light nude
Flesh 3 (109) – brown rose
Elson (003) – blue red
Obsessed!(211) – bright orange red
Full Panic (005) – bright fuchsia
Antidote (207) – magenta violet
McMenamy (200) – deep burgundy
Deep Void (210) – deep blackened purpleEach lipstick will cost you $38.00 or if you want the whole collection it will cost you $275.00 and it is limited edition.  The pre-sale was yesterday, so if you missed it, they will go live on July 29 at Sephora and at Pat McGrath Labs online.

Oooh what do you guys think of the shades? Is it just me or do they look like they could have a hint of some metallic sheen on the swatches? I really do like the shades a lot and the packaging is very cute, but I feel like I already have all these shades. They do seem a bit more pigmented and rich, hopefully the formula is gentle to the lips!
