Pat McGrath Cherish Divine BlushPat McGrath Cherish Divine Blush ($ 38.00 for 0.34 oz.) Is a light, medium dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented in a single coat with near-opacity coverage, so I would recommend using a very light hand when working with it to achieve the coverage the brand mentions (the formula should be buildable).
The texture was soft, smooth, and ground lightly to moderately powdery in the pan, although it didn’t look dry or dusty on my skin and blended with little effort. I can imagine that the undertone looks neutral to cool on those with cooler undertones, as it looked a bit warm on me in practice. It has worn well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

The formula should be “feather-light, long-lasting”, which “builds up easily from pure to subversive”. The blushes are available in two finishes – semi-matt and satin – and range from muted to livelier colors. The biggest “downside” to the formula was that it was pigmented rather than buildable so you could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found that I had to use a light to moderate hand to make sure that I don’t over- apply every shade.
The consistency was smooth, silky and felt slightly creamy; it was a bit powdery in the pan but had more lubricity than most powder blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. The product is easy to apply to bare skin and over the foundation, as it diffuses well along the edges without absorbing basic products.
The satin pearl finish was bright but not overtly shimmering so it didn’t emphasize the natural texture of my skin. They carried with me for about nine hours before they visibly faded.
