Divine Rose

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Divine BlushPat McGrath Divine Rose Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a soft, light-medium rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage, but it took more effort to sheer it out than anticipated based on the brand’s claims (so as long as being more pigmented isn’t a deal-breaker, there are no real cons to the formula!). I suspect this may look more neutral-to-cool un cooler complexions, as the warmth was more apparent on me when applied (and effectively sheered out).

The texture was smooth, lightly powdery in the pan, but it had some substance and didn’t sheer out too readily when applied to bare skin while still blending out with ease. The finish lived up to the “demi-matte” description; it seemed fairly matte but had a natural effect on my skin that wasn’t satin-like in its sheen. It wore well for nine hours before fading a bit.

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.

Skin is so incredibly nuanced. We both have light to light/medium neutral skin, but mine takes on this colour so differently. I picked up this one as well as Fleurtatious. Your point about skintone is very relevant with these blushes.. I do not know what Mother does with her magic potions, but she certainly has a way. I am super impressed with the formula.

Love the color and depth of this. I have no dupe at all for it either. So now I’m wondering why I haven’t jumped at putting this one on my WL. Yet, I know I will probably get it at some point.
