She's Seductive

Patrick Ta She’s Seductive Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush ($32.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a muted, medium, rosy-brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was enough something rather, be it a little creaminess or its ability to meld with skin, that gave it a more natural matte finish–not quite shiny or shimmery but not really flat either.

The powder was smooth, velvety, and blendable, but the one thing that I noticed was that it was a bit denser and worked best with moderately-dense brushes and was more prone to hardening over when it came into contact with natural oils (e.g. swatching with a fingertip could create noticeable hard pan in one or two swipes!). It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque (three layers) that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

Not bad! Just not blowing my socks off either. Besides, I have Essence Satin Love, which I’d say is far superior to this and only, what, $3.99? I’ll stick with Satin Love!

Just got this. On me, it is not on the same planet as Satin Love. This one pulls brown in fluorescent light and buildable mauve in home daylight. Satin Love pulls almost coral. Shows how skintone can really alter things up. I expect this with lip products, being vastly different from Christine, but was totally dumbfounded when I read the dupes. Major whaaaa? head shake. I guess the takeaway is to try it and see.

Hi Christine! The primary thumbnail for this product is the back of the compact, unlike others I’ve seen on your site that show the open product (and therefore shade inside). Just FYI in case it’s an easy fix. Thanks for all you do, and happy holidays!

I have fair skin with pink undertones and this blush works perfectly to slightly warm up my skin without turning orangey as most bronzers do on me. If you’re light skin tone give it a try.
