I’ve become a massive fan of Pat McGrath over the last year, after a rocky start thanks to some mouldy lipsticks. Thankfully, I’ve not had any other issues with their products, and I couldn’t wait to try the long awaited powder blushers.
The Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Divine Blush collection launched back in May, with nine different shades. Each of the shades is $38 / £35, and contains 9.7g / 0.34oz of product. I was really surprised by how large the pans are, with nearly 10g of blusher, which is a lot of considering a full size NARS Blusher is 4.8g.
Whenever Pat McGrath launches a new product, the brand offers bundle deals to celebrate the launch, and there were some amazing deals where you could get three shades for less than two shades, and you could even use a special 10% discount code on launch day too.
I was only planning on picking up two shades, but with the bundles and discount, I decided to get six, and today I have the Pat McGrath Nude Venus Skin Fetish Divine Blush to show you.
“Layerable. Luxurious. Legendary. Blush like an icon. Pat’s most requested launch ever, the instantly indispensable Divine Blush, creates a featherlight, long-wearing rush of couture colour in demi-matte and satin finishes. Ultra-fine powder pigments deliver sensuously soft, brilliantly blendable application.
All nine shades build effortlessly from sheer to subversive, bare to bold to beyond, ensuring a wondrous wash of customisable colour tailored to every skin tone and type. Embossed with radiant roses and sublime sun rays, this new classic is the answer to the eternal question: Who Makes You Blush?”
The Pat McGrath Nude Venus Skin Fetish Divine Blush couldn’t be more aesthetically pleasing. Packaged within a glossy lacquered effect compact, with the prettiest rose and starburst design on the pan.
We waited so long for Pat McGrath to launch blushers, and the brand didn’t disappoint, with all nine shades being absolutely beautiful, with luxurious, high quality packaging.
In terms of shade, the Pat McGrath Nude Venus Skin Fetish Divine Blush is described by the brand as being a peachy pink with golden pearl. I typically prefer a matte blush, as I find matte blushers to be more flattering, but the ‘pearl’ within Nude Venus is so subtle, that it doesn’t impart shimmer or glitter.
Instead it just gives a radiant glow, which doesn’t even look as if it’s makeup which is making you glow. It’s so natural, and flawless, with one of the best blusher formulas I’ve ever tried.
It’s buildable and smooth, but effortless to apply. Some powder blushers look so obvious and powdery on the skin, especially if you have dryness or texture.
Not the Skin Fetish Divine Blush formula – it’s the complete opposite, and I have everything crossed the brand will launch powder bronzers in this exact formula, as it’s amazing, and I love all of the shades I bought.
