She's Blushing

Patrick Ta She’s Blushing Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush ($34.00 for 0.37 oz.) includes a brighter, warmer coral cream blush paired with a soft, pinkish-plum, satiny powder blush. Both shades were blendable and longer-wearing, while the cream blush had more buildable coverage and the powder blush was quite pigmented.

She's Blushing (Crème)

She’s Blushing (Crème) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up as desired. The texture had enough slip to spread evenly across my skin but not so much that it was prone to lifting up base products when layered over them. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

-

The cream blush had a lightly creamy, moderately emollient consistency that applied evenly and blended out well over bare skin as well as over liquid foundation. In the duo format, the cream blush is actually designed to be layered over the powder (rather than typically under it) to add "life" back to the skin. It layered well on top of the blush to add a bit of shine without turning it into a full-on cream.

The pigmentation was sheer and buildable to semi-sheer to medium coverage, which seemed in line with the brand's marketing (though they could do a better job describing it). On its own, it lasted around six hours before fading/migrating noticeably. When I wore it on top of the powder blush, it seemed to shorten wear by a half hour to an hour.

She's Blushing (Powder)

She’s Blushing (Powder) is a light-medium, reddish plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had more shimmer than most powder shades from the duos have had in the past, though it was more of a natural glow than overt shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a soft, somewhat powdery texture that had more excess kicked up in the pan than ideal but did not read powdery or dry when applied and blended out on my skin. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

-

The powder blush was supposed to be "pigmented" and "weightless." The consistency was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but it had a smoother, denser feel to it that was almost velvety without being overly firm. The powder picked up well with a brush and yielded semi-opaque to opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily. The formula lasted around nine hours on its own, but layering the coordinating cream shortened wear by half hour to an hour.
