MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder (Archie’s Girls)

MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “golden peach base with coral hearts.” The base color is a warm peach with a soft, frosted finish (and it is reminiscent of Cream Soda in some ways). The hearts are a medium pink-coral with a subtle golden sheen. When everything is mixed together, the resulting shade is a soft, pinky-coral with a light golden sheen. It’s slightly warm-toned. MAC Legendary is just a touch pinker. MAC Immortal Flower is much, much pinker. Tarina Tarantino Feather is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Blush G is pinker and has a stronger sheen. MAC Shell Pearl is similar but a touch more muted.

MAC Veronica’s Blush Pearlmatte Face Powder (Archie’s Girls)

MAC Veronica’s Blush Pearlmatte Face Powder ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “silvery pink base with deep pink hearts.” The base color is a pale pink with a subtle silver sheen. The hearts are a darker pinker with a barely-there sheen. Together, they created a soft, pale pink with a silver shimmer-sheen finish–it’s a darker pink than the base alone. MAC Unconventional is more lavender. MAC Full of Joy is brighter and much purpler. NARS Gaiety is brighter, darker, and bluer-toned. Chanel Brompton Road is warmer. Illamasqua Katie is matte but similar in color.

MAC Sunday Afternoon Pearlmatte Face Powder

MAC Sunday Afternoon Pearlmatte Face Powder ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as “clean bright pink, bright clean fuchsia, soft pale pink with white pearl.” The first shade is a cotton candy pink w ith blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. The middle shade is a dark pink with a subtle pearled sheen. The bottom shade is a pink-tinted white with a frosted shimmer-sheen. Together, they create a shimmery light-medium pink with subtle cool undertones. NARS New Order is cooler toned. MAC Blonde is similar in the pink tones, but not quite the same together. I feel like there are more dupes, but I couldn’t think of anything else.

MAC in Lillyland Collection: Pearlmatte Eyeshadow & Powder & Coconut Ice Nail Lacquer

The two prettiest-looking items in the collection are my two least favorites of the collection. Both the Pearlmatte Eyeshadow and Face Powder are lovely to look at with their floral design, but the product itself is just okay.
