She's Sincere

Patrick Ta She’s Sincere Monochrome Moment Velvet BlushPatrick Ta She’s Sincere Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush ($32.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a sat finish. The powder had a soft glow to it once applied and blended out on my cheeks, though it wasn’t shimmery to my eye. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque coverage (two heavy layers or three sheerer layers) that adhered well to bare skin.

The texture was smooth to the touch, dense but not stiff, and had a velvety glide to it (likely from the silicones in it). It was easy to apply and blend out for an even result, but I did find that the formula was more reactive to natural oils (than most products), which would result in hardened pan surface. As a result, I would recommend applying this over a more matte or set base or else I’d be careful re-dipping one’s brush in if it’s been used. If you develop hard pan, gently rubbing the spot with paper towel should remove the majority of it. The blush stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.

After perusing the dupe list, I not only saw that I have no dupes, but only one of the dupes on my WL! I believe that that dupe, MAC Melba, would be a better fit for me. Time to make my MAC 6 -pan custom palette, or at least start it!

With only a few days until the end of the rouge bonus, I conquered my holiday store phobia and went to little Sephora, when I found that my main desire was OOS online. I got Seductive. It looked very warm in Sā€™s dreadful lighting. Not as warm at home. These Tas are the essence of buildable. It can take a few dips to get to the intensity level you want. The consumer reviews generally complain about arm swatch vs. application and poor pigmentation. I think Seduction is subtle, and the obvious choice in Tas for cooler tones. It would likely not be friendly to users darker than medium skintone. Not chalky, just imperceptible.
