Pat McGrath Labs OpuLUST Gloss Review

March 3, 2020

Pat McGrath Labs OpuLUST Gloss

Today I have a Pat McGrath Labs OpuLUST Gloss ($30 each) review with swatches of all eight colors. She launched these earlier in the year and these are ultra sparkly multi-dimensional lip glosses with a metallic finish. As a huge fan of her LUST Glosses (reviewed here and here) I was eager to try these new ones.

There are eight colors in the OpuLUST Gloss formula. Every color is ultra sparkly and metallic with super opaque pigment. They’re surprisingly smooth without any gritty texture even with all the sparkles. Quality and texture wise these are excellent however the sparkle factor is quite intense and for me I find them too glitzy for everyday wear. I think these are beautiful but for my taste they’re too metallic and too glittery for me to wear comfortably except for parties.

The OpuLUST Gloss comes in the same packaging as the LUST Gloss. Tube form with an angled sponge tip applicator. There’s a slight vanilla scent to these glosses. Lasting power is quite impressive for a gloss and they glide onto the lips very smoothly and stay put for hours.

I do really love how pigmented they are. I’m hoping she will launch a more pigmented gloss version of her LUST Glosses which are gorgeous but more on the sheer side. Here’s a closer look at all the colors:

Coraliason

Coraliason is a pale milky metallic peachy pink. It’s loaded with multi-color glitters and looks like a more intense version of Pale Fire Nectar. For skintone reference I’m wearing the Skin Fetish Foundation in Shade 14.

Under Your Spell

Under Your Spell is a pale cool-toned pink sparkle. It’s more pink than Coralison but similar in undertone and lightness.

Lavendaring

Lavendaring is a pale silvery lavender sparkle. It’s fairly pale and true to what you see in the tube. I would love this one as an eyeshadow!

Dreamscape

Dreamscape is a unique duochrome bronze with pink, almost green and opal flashes. It’s almost like a nude on my lips. I also think this one would make an amazing eyeshadow color.

Naked Rose

Naked Rose is my favorite of the collection, it’s a metallic rose.

Venomistress

Venomistress is also quite stunning. It’s a metallic glittery violet plum. If this didn’t have the glitter I’d wear this on date nights.

Pat McGrath Labs OpuLUST Gloss review

Overall quality wise these are excellent. If you love a good shimmer with lots of shine these are going to be great for you! For me I found them too metallic for my comfort zone but found the quality to be true to Pat McGrath’s style and well made. I personally still really prefer her LUST Gloss formula.

Do you love a glitzy gloss? Or do you prefer minimal shimmer? What are some of your favorites?

You can find the Pat McGrath OpuLUST Glosses all available now at Pat McGrath Labs. They retail for $30 each.
