MAC Vera: Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte Face Powder

MAC Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte Face Powder ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as “pale coral with slight gold pearl, slightly blue pale pink, soft pale salmon.” The largest shade is a dirty coral; it’s a little brown, little coral, with a subtle sheen.  The smaller color in the middle (so-to-speak) is a pale rosy pink with a pearly sheen. The final shade in the palette is a frosted peach champagne. Together, they create a warm peach-pink with a shimmer-sheen finish. If you want less shimmer in your finish, avoid the bottom portion of the palette. Chanel Pink Cloud is lighter and less pink. Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel is less shimmery, pinker. MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz is more of a dirty pink. MAC Oh So Fair is lighter, less pink.

Though the individual shades don’t seem quite pigmented and almost a little stiff, when swirled together, there doesn’t seem to be any pigmentation or texture issues. When I tested the wear of this, it wore for six and a half hours before it started to look a little faded and patchy.  The texture is soft though not as finely-milled as some of the best powders. There is some emphasis of the quality and texture of skin, but it’s very slight.  

You can vary the shimmer in the finish and how light you want to go by using less of the bottom shade, which has a really frosted finish that adds lots of shimmer as well as lightens the color.  I did dig through the product to verify that the three distinct shades go all the way through.  The metallic silver that is between the shades is just an overspray.

*phew* thank God this is actually a good product. I get so excited for beautifully designed products only to be disappointed most of the time. I have to grab this before it runs out (if it does!)

Christine, that looks gorgeous on your cheeks! I read your review several times, but I couldn’t tell for sure if you swirled your brush in all three shades before applying on your cheeks. The shimmer in the champagne shade makes me nervous, but it doesn’t look as shimmery on your cheeks. Thank you in advance for your reply!

I sent an email to MAC earlier asking if they changed the release dates, but I haven’t heard back yet. The press release listed February 16th 🙂 I try to go by official information – I don’t want to tell people it’s out in stores or the date changed if it hasn’t!

hi christine,

i know this is a bit out there, but is this blush lighter than the dior coral riviera? I was absolutely in love with the dior one, but it barely showed up on my nc37-40 skin and I ended up returning it. sob.

Hmm. I’m NW10 and have a lottt of pink in my skin. Do you think this would look good on me? I’m not sure which of these I like better!

What exactly is the design on the powder supposed to be..? A bug and ‘USA’..? I’m confused. It looks kind of cheap to me (the design, that is).

Also, which foundation+powder combo have you been wearing in recent lip product photos (like the Shop MAC, Cook MAC ones), Christine? I’m a fan, whatever it is 🙂

if i may,since the collaborator is a painter/artist,the design pertains to a finished work of an artist where he/she signs or write his/her signature/name on the masterpiece…commonly found on the lower side of a painting,and then put on a frame!,for of course common sense,proof that they made it!!
have you ever seen a painting?hth

I put this on hold until the 16 at my local Mac as well as some of the lipglasses (forgot the names) and the eyeshadow pots? If that’s what u call them I put the more neutral one on hold it’s a really cute spring collection actually.
