A few weeks back when I reviewed the Huda Beauty Cream Lipstick in Money Maker, I had a conversation in the comments with Lili (as we tend to do lol) about buying multiple colors of the same product. While I’m now trying to do better about only buying one shade of a formula, that did not happen in the instance of the Divine Blushes from Pat McGrath. On Saturday, Lili and I were talking about Holiday collections, and how Pat McGrath is releasing two blush/highlighter palettes. Lili found out from the Trendmood Instagram account that one palette has the shade divine rose and the other has the shade paradise venues, both of which I already own.
Like many in the beauty community, I was very excited about this launch. Even though a lot of reviews started to get released the day I placed my order I decided not to watch or read any until I had the chance to try this blush for myself. I really just wanted to enjoy this product without any ideas of how it performs or doesn’t perform for other people. I also wanted to just use it like a “normal” makeup user without trying to review it at the same time. I received my package on Friday, May 28th and I didn’t waste any time, I started wearing it the next day. I ended up really happy I made that decision not to check reviews and just have fun with it.
I have really tested this out and tried it over different foundations and with different brushes, so this is by no means a first impression. I want to make that clear, not to hate on first impressions, but to point out that you can have different experiences working with something in different ways. Hopefully, I can explain my experiences well enough to help you make your own decision on whether or not this would be a good purchase for you personally.
