She's Passionate

Patrick Ta She’s Passionate Monochrome Moment Velvet BlushPatrick Ta She’s Passionate Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush ($32.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It wasn’t overly shimmery, but it had slight sheen once applied and blended out on my skin that kept it from being a true matte finish.

The texture was smooth, velvety, and dense with moderate slip, which I found to be more reactive to natural oils (which would cause the surface to harden). It had buildable coverage from medium to mostly opaque, which applied evenly and was easy to diffuse on my skin. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.37 oz. - $86.49 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have builable coverage, though the brand has done an inconsistent job of marketing them that way, as at the point of purchase, there's no mention of them being buildable (and promotional swatches at point of purchase show opaque coverage), while on their Instagram it says as much; the makeup artist behind the brand said, "buildable and will never leave your cheeks to[o] pigmented on the first application." Aside from the coverage kerfuffle, the formula is supposed to have good adhesion, "true color," and a "natural finish" and "extended wear."

Of the four shades released (at the time this overview was written), all four had more semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque), but the underlying texture of the formula seemed particularly sensitive to natural oils, so I would take care swatching it with fingertips and for typical consumer use, I'd suggest applying over more matte base products and/or over a setting or finishing powder if you tend to pick up product more than once (to avoid bringing any natural oils into the pan). The powder was just more susceptible than the average powder--in my experience--to getting a hardened surface.

The powder itself was incredibly smooth, silky, and had some glide to it, which helped the product apply evenly, diffuse with ease, and sit well on bare skin. I also think it's the type of formula that performs better in practice than just swatched on one's arm. They seemed to be more satin-to-matte in the pan without overt shimmer, but they had a more semi-matte or "natural" finish (as intended) once buffed out on my skin. The shades lasted around eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Because I have MAC Spring Flock which is a darker tone and a more pigmented formula, I’m giving this one a hard pass. On your skintone, it looks perfectly fine, but I feel it probably wouldn’t show as well on me.

I have two, and the only drawback, in my opinion, is that they’re not heavily pigmented (which is what I prefer). They are spectacularly natural-looking on the skin. I’ve never worn a powder blush like this in my 40+ years of wearing makeup–in fact, I rarely ever wear powders–but these really are different and innovative, although I’m not getting that from the reviews here. Other places, yes. (No hard-pan issues either, but that will take time to develop.)

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
