Pat McGrath Paradise Venus is a moderately warm-toned, dark copper with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.34 oz.
Paradise Venus is a muted, medium-dark reddish-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was soft, slightly powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy to pick up with different brushes. It had fairly pigmented coverage in a single pass, so I had to really use a lighter hand to get truly buildable coverage (as marketed), which was the big "downside" with this shade. It lasted nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.
