Pat McGrath Nude Venus Divine BlushPat McGrath Nude Venus Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium pink-coral with a hint of tonal pink pearl over a semi-matte finish. This was less shimmery and luminous compared to the other shades with the "satin pearl" finish, though it was definitely more than semi-matte once applied and buffed onto my skin.
It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage but was more pigmented than it was truly buildable, so you'll want to use a less-dense brush and a lighter hand to achieve sheerer coverage if desired. The blush had a very smooth, silky consistency that was easy to work with as the powder went on evenly and diffused well along the edges. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.
