MAC's Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powders Review, Swatches and Photos

One of the most highly anticipated products from MAC's Archie's Girls collection are the Pearlmatte powders. Housed in a white compact, this latest incarnation of the Pearlmatte powders mix a base of Beauty Powder and hearts of blusher. All photos in natural light on NC 35 skin (LE, $35.00 CA/$30.00 US).

MAC's Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powders: Flatter Me and Veronica's Blush

Flatter Me: base, heart and combined colors.

Veronica's Blush: base, heart and combined colors.

Flatter Me - A combination of Shell Pearl Beauty Powder (base) and Foolish Me blush (hearts). A fairly light, soft pinky peach. On lighter skin tones this would be a lovely coral shimmery blush, but on medium to dark skin tones I see it working more as a peach tinted highlighter. Predominantly warm but wearable for all skin tones. Good pigmentation and buildable color.

Veronica's Blush - A combination of Play it Proper Beauty Powder (base) and Frankly Scarlet blush (hearts). The base shimmer of this powder is a starker and whiter, and will therefore stand out more on the skin than Flatter Me. Cool toned and more dramatic, this powder may look ashy on darker skin tones. Good pigmentation and buildable color.

The Pearlmatte formula gives a nice glow to the skin without looking too frosty or unnatural. Flatter Me is a good choice for all skin tones, while Veronica's Blush suits cooler skin tones a little more, but would still be wearable for warm skin tones. This product is an easy pick-me-up for the complexion and is buildable for more/less color and shine .

Grade: B+
