Pat McGrath Desert Orchid Divine BlushPat McGrath Desert Orchid Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with a hint of rosiness and warmer, peachy-gold pearl throughout. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was its "con" as it wasn't a buildable formula; I had to use a very light hand and be consciously careful of how much I was picking up to achieve sheer or buildable coverage.
The consistency was incredibly smooth to the touch, almost silky, despite having a bit of give and powderiness (in the pan). It applied evenly to bare skin, diffused as I was applying, and blended out well. The finish was subtle and luminous, so there was no fear of it emphasizing my skin's natural texture. The color showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.
