I was most skeptical about the Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush ($32) due to its sheer finish when I swatched it on my hand. However, when I placed a fluffy brush into the powder and swept it over my cheeks, it instantly made me look more awake.
The pink color, "She's Passionate," took my complexion from dull and tired to radiant and bright. Plus, the pigment was buildable, allowing me to adjust the saturation of the shade. The edges of where I applied the brush blended out smoothly, and adding on more never made it look patchy. As the last step, I chose the deepest shade, "She's Seductive," and lightly went over the temples of my forehead for a little added glow. These blushes took me from looking pale and tired to fresh-faced and perky, and for that, I am very grateful.
