Pat McGrath Electric Bloom Divine BlushPat McGrath Electric Bloom Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark orange-coral with a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage, which was more in line with the brand's marketing of the formula than most shades in the range. It had the type of pigmentation that wasn't so intense that it could be diffused and sheered out if one forgot to use a lighter hand, but it still needed to be used with a light to light-medium hand for sheerer coverage. I had better luck getting a sheer wash by using a fan brush as well.
The texture was soft, moderately powdery and more prone to kick up in the pan compared to other shades in the range. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well without sticking unevenly to places on bare skin, which can often be an issue with more matte finishes. It wasn't satin-like in its sheen, but it was "natural matte" so it did not appear dry on my skin. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.
