Pearl is a lighter beige base with fine flecks of lavender and gold pearl throughout. It had a subtle glow but packed more pigment in the base color, and applied on its own, it a bit of a greenish cast at times--but when paired with the blush in the duo, it seemed less beige and brought out some of the lavender tones.
The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery nor too firmly-pressed in the pan. It applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well without issue, though when I tried it over foundation, it seemed slightly cakey due to being quite pigmented (especially with the base color, rather than from shimmer alone). I'd definitely suggest using a very light hand with it and/or applying it over or under the blush rather than on its own to avoid it looking a bit thick on the skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
