Lovestruck

Pat McGrath Lovestruck Divine BlushPat McGrath Lovestruck Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, which made it one of the more buildable shades in the range–and thus, closer to the brand’s marketing of the formula. It did not feel like I had to pile it on to get more opacity, and I didn’t have to use the world’s lightest touch to achieve sheerer coverage, though I had the best (and most consistent!) results using a fan brush for a sheerer effect on my skin tone.

The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled with light powderiness in the pan but it applied evenly and blended out well over bare skin and over foundation. 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.

Now that’s a bold 80’s pink! Not something I could so easily pull off now, but back in the day of heavy highlighted, spiral permed hair, I did use shades like this, but lightly applied.

Wow – beautiful colour but scary bright. Christine, does this sheer out to a realistically wearable shade easily? I’d love to see a photo of it sheered out to get an idea of if I’d find it something I could wear and look natural.
