Pat McGrath Paradise Venus Divine BlushPat McGrath Paradise Venus Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-copper with refined, heat undertones and a semi-matte end. It had extra of a “pure matte” end when utilized and blended out, so it didn’t seem dry or flat however didn’t have an overt sheen or seen shimmer on the pores and skin.
The feel was tender, barely powdery within the pan, nevertheless it was easy, velvety, and substantial sufficient to take a seat fantastically on naked pores and skin and mix out with little effort. It had semi-opaque coloration payoff in a single layer, which might be constructed up or sheered out, however you’ll need to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to get sheer protection if desired (it was marketed as going from sheer to extra pigmented, nevertheless it was actually pretty pigmented to start out with!). The colour confirmed indicators of fading after 9 hours of wear and tear on me.

The formulation is meant to be “featherlight, long-wearing” that “construct effortlessly from sheer to subversive.” The blushes can be found in two finishes–demi-matte and satin pearl–and vary from extra muted to extra vivid in coloration. The largest “downfall” of the formulation was that it was quite pigmented than buildable, so one may use a lighter hand to get extra buildable protection, however I discovered I had to make use of a light-weight to reasonable hand to make sure I did not over-apply every shade.
The consistency was easy, silky, and flippantly creamy to the contact; it was a contact powdery within the pan however had extra slip than most powder blushes in the marketplace, nevertheless it was positively a powder-based formulation. The product utilized properly to reveal pores and skin in addition to over basis, because it subtle properly alongside the sides with out selecting up base merchandise.
The satin pearl end was luminous however not overtly shimmery, so it didn’t emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture. They wore round 9 hours on me earlier than fading visibly.
