IN FOR A TREAT MAC PEARLMATTE FACE POWDER FROM THE BAKING BEAUTIES COLLECTION

The other day, when needing a pick me up I obviously went on a massive splurge on Mac and spent way more money than I have. When the Baking Beauties collection came out in Mac I was completely sold by the pretty muted shades and gorgeous products. This is In For A Treat, a pretty named Pearlmatte Face Powder. You can look at the Mac Archie's Girls Veronica's Pearlmatte Blush here, which is slightly more pale and pink toned in comparison to this. I was first captured by the pretty floral print on the pan. Yes I am guilty of buying things because they're pretty! They do two Pearlmatte Face Powders in the Baking Beauties collection, this one and Pink Buttercream. Personally I preferred how that Pink Buttercream looked, but its virtually the same as the Veronica's Blush. A Pearlmatte Face Powder is very subtle on the cheeks, and to some users barely noticeable. It adds a very natural glow and brightens up the face without it being too much. Personally I think Mac have aced the natural glow with this product, but the reviews have been very varied.
Because of my pale complexion and near to matte skin, most products show up on my skin. It leaves a pretty light beige/champagne hue on my cheeks when applied, with a pretty soft shimmery sheen. It's so easy to apply, but it's possible to over do the shimmer, so I advise to apply it softly and build up, instead of bunging a load on the brush! It shows up really nicely on my skin, and I really love using it. It doesn't give much colour to my cheeks, so I do have to use this along side another blusher.
The floral print on the pan is so pretty and delicate - I almost didn't want to use it! The flower in the middle continues throughout use, but the white around the edges is just on the top layer, adding a little more highlight that's really noticeable. I wish they'd kept the white throughout the pan. For anyone who is scared, the green has hardly any pigmentation and makes no difference on the blush as a whole.
Grab your cute and good enough to eat Pearlmatte Powder from Mac for £21.50, you'll be in for a treat!
