Patrick Ta She’s So LA Double-Take Blush Duo Review & Swatches


She’s So LA

Patrick Ta She’s So LA Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush ($34.00 for 0.37 oz.) includes a cream and powder blush in similar tones (despite them looking more contrasting in the pans!) with the cream designed to be layered over (rather than under, which is more typical) the powder to breathe “life” back into the skin. I actually felt like the powder blush had a skin-like finish that the cream didn’t add a lot of additional dimension/sheen, especially once blended and dried down.

She’s So LA (Crème)

She’s So LA (Crème) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm rosy undertones and a very fine, barely-there pearl. It had a more emollient consistency that was lightweight, thin, and had a fair amount of slip, though it seemed to dry down for the most part, so it didn’t slide around during wear. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage with a second or third layer.

The product applied well over and under the coordinating powder (and on top of foundation); either method added a bit of additional sheen to the skin without changing the color much. It wore well for six hours on its own before fading noticeably and shortened the wear of the powder by a half hour when worn on top.

Formula Overview

The cream blush had a lightly creamy, moderately emollient consistency that applied evenly and blended out well over bare skin as well as over liquid foundation. In the duo format, the cream blush is actually designed to be layered over the powder (rather than typically under it) to add “life” back to the skin. It layered well on top of the blush to add a bit of shine without turning it into a full-on cream.

The pigmentation was sheer and buildable to semi-sheer to medium coverage, which seemed in line with the brand’s marketing (though they could do a better job describing it). On its own, it lasted around six hours before fading/migrating noticeably. When I wore it on top of the powder blush, it seemed to shorten wear by a half hour to an hour.

She’s So LA (Powder)

She’s So LA (Powder) is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm rosy undertones and an ultra-fine pearl shimmer that gave it more of a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage, as described, which applied beautifully to bare skin: it blended out with ease and sat well with a skin-like finish. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and dense without being stiff nor was it too powdery.

The color lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit, though layering the cream on top shortened wear by a half hour–and the subtle sheen to the powder really didn’t look that much dewier with the cream so pairing the two together didn’t seem necessary!

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

The powder blush was supposed to be “pigmented” and “weightless.” The consistency was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but it had a smoother, denser feel to it that was almost velvety without being overly firm. The powder picked up well with a brush and yielded semi-opaque to opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily. The formula lasted around nine hours on its own, but layering the coordinating cream shortened wear by half hour to an hour.
