Cherish

Pat McGrath Cherish Divine BlushPat McGrath Cherish Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with near opaque coverage in a single layer, so I’d recommend using a very light hand when working with it to achieve the sheer coverage mentioned by the brand (the formula was supposed to be buildable).

The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled with light to moderate powderiness in the pan, though it didn’t appear dry or dusty on my skin and blended out with little effort. I imagine the undertone may look neutral-to-cool on those with cooler undertones as it looked a little warm-toned on me in practice. It wore well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.34 oz. - $111.76 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "featherlight, long-wearing" that "build effortlessly from sheer to subversive." The blushes are available in two finishes--demi-matte and satin pearl--and range from more muted to more vivid in color. The biggest "downfall" of the formula was that it was rather pigmented than buildable, so one could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found I had to use a light to moderate hand to ensure I didn't over-apply each shade.

The consistency was smooth, silky, and lightly creamy to the touch; it was a touch powdery in the pan but had more slip than most powder blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. The product applied well to bare skin as well as over foundation, as it diffused well along the edges without picking up base products.

The satin pearl finish was luminous but not overtly shimmery, so it did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. They wore around nine hours on me before fading visibly.
