Mac Pearlmatte Powder £21.50
I've been such a naughty blogger of late, however if you are or have been a third year student with a dissertation to write you know how stressful that can get.
Anyways, a while ago I got my hands on the Flatter Me Pearlmatte powder from Mac's beautiful Archie's Girls collection. I only started using it a couple of weeks ago but has become one of my favourite blushers of all time!
What makes these products stand out so much is the gorgeous cartoon packaging, it's quirky but really cute. I love the fact that the Pearlmatte products come with a mirror inside the lid which is a big bonus for me, I love any face product with a mirror makes a great travel product. The cuteness doesn't stop there, inside the product is even cuter with the coloured hearts on the powder. Overall the blush is a golden peach with warm coral hearts which combined gives a soft coral shade with a golden frost finish. A perfect look which I will be sporting all summer.
However with this I do find that the coral hearts are hard to pick up when mixing on the pan, so you do mainly end up with the peach finish, but when applied this does look lovely and feels very soft. I think this would look great with a tan as it would emphasise your glow.
Staying powder is actually fab, I've been wearing this whilst on my internship and does a great job of lasting all day. So I would place staying time at between 6-8 hours which I think is great. It doesn't give too much colour to the cheeks but enough for a cute everyday look and because of this it makes it a great shade for everyone no matter the skin tone.
There is one added bonus with the Pearlmatte product and that is it's multi-use purpose, which means that this is not only a blush, but it works also as a highlighter and eyeshadow. However I think if you were to use it as an eyeshadow this would only really work as a base shade as it wouldn't pack much punch.
Despite the simple colour I think this is a staple piece in my collection purely because of it's simplicity. I love a colour that can be used for daytime looks but then be transformed for a night look. This would look fab with a bright lip and really help emphasise those bright pink shades just like the Betty Bright lipstick shade.
Unfortunately these are sold out on the Mac site so would have to check your local counters to see if they have any left.
Have you tried any of the Betty/Veronica products? Really wish I had got some Veronica ones now.
Happy Easter guys!
