MAC Pink Buttercream Pearlmatte Face Powder ($30.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as a “light silvery pink base with dark pink flowers and periwinkle leaves.” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium pink with a blue-gray cast and a soft, white shimmer-sheen finish. Chantecaille Rose Petals is warmer, less pink. Lancome Moonlight Rose is warmer. Guerlani Cruel Gardenia is less pink and warmer. NARS New Order has a similar base color but has gold shimmer and sparkle. MAC Veronica’s Blush is warm-toned. MAC Full of Joy is more lavender. MAC Unconventional is more lavender and blue-based.

Like In for a Treat, it did emphasize pores somewhat; it wasn’t the worst offender I’ve come across, but it didn’t minimize or soften them in any way (and didn’t leave them as-is, either). There is actually something about the finish that reminds me of frosting (but I can’t actually recollect eating frosty with shimmer!). Pink Buttercream could be used as a blush on very fair skin tones, as it does have more color in its base than the other Pearlmatte. On my medium complexion (NC25/NC30), it adds a little pinkness but mostly shimmer/sheen. The texture is very soft and silky, and it blends out easily on the skin. It lasted seven and a half hours on me, and after eight, there was some very faint fading.
