Pat McGrath Fleurtatious Divine BlushPat McGrath Fleurtatious Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, which was still more than marketed, so you’ll want to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to achieve truly sheer coverage from the get-go if desired.
The powder was smooth, velvety, and a little powdery in the pan, but the product itself applied evenly, smoothly, and did not appear dry or dusty on my skin. This color just barely shows up on my complexion (light to light-medium in depth) as a point of reference. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.
