Pat McGrath x Bridgerton Love at First Blush Cheek Trio Review & Swatches

Love from First Plus

Pat McGrath Love at First Blush Divine Blush & Glow Trio ($52.00 for 0.37 oz) Includes two blushers and a powder highlighter; All shades are pre-launched with both blushes available individually if you prefer. They performed consistently with the previous versions I tried with marginal color difference, although I did notice flower nectar It looked a little warmer and darker.

One thing to keep in mind is that the blush was somewhat pigmented, rather than building as marketed, so ratings reflect this imbalance – if you prefer more pigmented blush (or don’t mind it), you can raise the rating in a head!

cherished

cherished It is a medium light pink color with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It didn’t have a distinct shimmer but looked completely matte once applied and blended onto my skin. It has opaque color coverage with a finely milled smooth texture that is easy to blend. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula overview

$38.00 / 0.34 oz. – $111.76 an ounce

The formula is meant to be “lightweight, long-wearing” that “builds effortlessly from sheer to disruptive.” The blush is available in two variants – matte pearl and shimmer pearl – and ranges in color from subtle to brighter. The biggest “disadvantage” of the formula was that it was somewhat more pigmented than buildable, so one could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found that I had to use a light to moderate hand to ensure I didn’t over-apply all Shade.

The consistency was smooth, silky, and lightly creamy to the touch; It was a touch-up powder in the pan but was more slippery than most blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. Apply the product well to the exposed skin as well as over the foundation, spreading it well along the edges without picking up the basic products.

The satin pearl finish was luminous but not overtly shimmering, so it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. They wore on for about nine hours before fading visibly.

flower nectar

flower nectar A darker peach gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous shimmer. The highlighter had rich pigmentation in one layer with a silky smooth, semi-emollient, lightweight, fluffy texture, and not at all powdery. It seemed to “melt” on my skin when I applied and mixed it. This shade held well for eight and a half hours before fading out noticeably.

Formula overview

$48.00 / 0.16 oz. – $300.00 an ounce

The formula is meant to have an “ultra-reflective finish” and a “silky texture” to impart a “high-intensity glow.” The texture felt more emollient, almost hydrated to the touch, although it was characteristically a powder-based formula in practice.

It has mostly opaque, buildable color coverage with an ultra-thin, lightweight texture that applies evenly to bare skin and blends easily. The finish was “high intensity” but it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
