Night Bloom

Pat McGrath Night Bloom Divine Blush Duo ($44.00 for 0.34 oz.) included a berry hue and a warm poppy red, so the two swirled together to create a deep, pinky-red with a semi-matte finish.

  • Mostly opaque coverage (supposed to be buildable)
  • Finely-milled, lightly powdery
  • Fairly blendable but best with a lighter hand and over a set base
  • Long-wearing (8-9 hours is typical)

Night Bloom (Left)

Night Bloom (Left) is a rich, deeper berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable coverage (supposed to be buildable)
  • Finely-milled, somewhat powdery
  • Fairly blendable, use with a lighter hand
  • Long-wearing (8-9 hours is typical)

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.

I want to buy one of these LE blushes I’m glad you’re doing a review so that I can get a baseline to go by. So far I have held back from purchasing a blush from her and then she came out with these, now is the time for me to pull the trigger. This is one beautiful color combo!

I’ve a good dupe for the Left side in MAC’s Rosy Does It (in fact, seeing this review yesterday prompted me to wear it today; it last so well – I was at the gym with my trainer and it withstood a lot of wiping of my sweaty face.

Holy crap I almost skipped right by the ingredients assuming I couldn’t use it. Awesome! Thanks for including pictures of packaging. Looks like this one doesn’t have silicones, while Cosmic Coral does. I love that red side so much.

I passed on these. I have two of her original blushes, which I like a lot. I did, however, order the Amber Allure blush/highlight trio. It is on sale for $39, and I feel like you get more bang for your buck, so to speak, than you do with the duo blushes.
