MAC Oh My, Passion! Pearlmatte Face Powder Review, Photos, Swatches

Oh My, Passion!

MAC Oh My, Passion! Pearlmatte Face Powder ($33.00 for 0.28 oz.) is comprised of a soft yellow, reddish-brown, pink-coral, and pinky lavender that swirl together and create a subdued pinky-peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It could look pinker or more muted depending on how much of the pink/lavender compared to brown was picked up.

The Pearlmatte Face Powder is supposed to be a combination of a highlighter and blush with “excellent colour payoff” and a “rich and creamy texture.” They vary a lot in price and size, as they are a limited edition formula and often feature embossing/special designs. The consistency was incredibly smooth and soft in the pan with a touch of powderiness, but luckily, that powderiness didn’t translate to the skin. Instead, the more I buffed and blended out the color, the more luminous the finish became–glowing but not overtly shimmery and never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage if desired. The blush wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

This collection launches on May 18th.

Do you think this will show up on tan to deep skintones? I am NC45 and would like to purchase this but am not sure if it will show up on me.

I am SO glad to see that this did so well! From the moment I first got a glimpse of it, it was love at first sight! Getting!

I was hoping that this wouldn’t swatch well because it’s so pretty! This is such a gorgeous powder – both design and the colour! Looks like it’s going to be quite a universally flattering colour on many skintones!

This looks gorgeous on you! From the skin swatch, I suspected that it might be too light to show up on my medium (NC30) skin, but it looks like it can be built up!

I’m a NW10 and fell in love with this, I decided to buy this and with a light touch it works out great. Absolutely love it
