The Pat McGrath SatinAllure Lipsticks made their first appearance as part of the Bridgerton 2 collection in March 2022. When the collection was released, I ordered Negligee and Veiled Rose but unfortunately, Veiled Rose was too cool-toned for my preferences so I returned that one. Today I’ll show you Negligee and give you the rundown on the formula in case you are interested in this line of lipsticks.
If you have been following me for long enough you may have seen me mention this formula in my swatch post for the Pat McGrath Blushing Delights Palette. My initial thought on this formula was that I wasn’t impressed and that there are better lipsticks on the market. That is still kind of true, but the shade of Negligee does make me like this lipstick a little more. The SatinAllure formula is light to medium coverage and has a nice luminous shine to it. It’s smoothing on the lips and I don’t experience any feathering. It’s comfortable to wear, and fairly thin without being slippery in texture. It’s supposed to be hydrating but I don’t find that to be true for me but it isn’t drying.
It does look nice and for a cream lipstick, it lasts for about 3 hours before needing a touchup. I drink water and tea all day so for me that’s decent. So where does the kind of true part come in? I can’t help but feel like this formula looks nicer on my lips than it feels on my lips for my personal preferences. I like a thicker feel to my lipsticks and just a little more coverage. Lipsticks that feel thicker are becoming less common as newer lipstick formulas are being released. So that leads me to believe that the masses are preferring thinner textures and this one fits that bill.
I think that as long as you like the packaging, this is good lipstick for $30. I also think that this new shade expansion provides some beautiful colors to choose from. If you are used to the hefty Pat McGrath Lipstick packaging though, this will be a letdown. The overall weight of this packaging is lightweight and that is disappointing. I do still like the packaging, however, because I personally like the bow detail better than the lips on the classic line. I do also want to point out that although the SatinAllure Lipstick formula is only 3.7g compared to the 4g of the MatteTrance Lipstick formula, it is also $9 cheaper.

Comparison Swatches for Shade Reference
I’ve compared Pat McGrath Negligee ($30)** to Laura Mercier Beige Intime ($38),** Estee Lauder Intense Nude (this is the discontinued formula), and Charlotte Tilbury Glowing Jen ($38).** All three of the comparison lipsticks have more coverage than the Pat McGrath formula and wear longer. This comparison is to hopefully put the color into context for you.
The Pat McGrath SatinAllure Lipsticks are available at patmcgrath.com** and sephora.com.**
If you are someone who enjoys lighter coverage lipsticks with some shine, I think you’ll like this. Also, if you don’t have very pigmented lips, you’ll obviously get more coverage out of it. I do think that from a distance it looks like more coverage than it’s actually providing, so that’s a plus. Are there other lipsticks both at this price and cheaper that are just as good? Of course, that will always be true. At a similar price, I like the Huda Beauty Luminous lipsticks ($27) better, and for cheaper, I like the Propa Beauty lipsticks ($12). Those two formulas have the shine that I get from the Pat Mcgrath with higher coverage. However, I like Pat McGrath’s color range better than both of those brands. So as with all things, there is some give and take.
