Pearlmatte Face Powder In For A Treat
This face powder is from one of MAC's most recent collections. The Baking Beauties collection is inspired by the exquisite art of cake decoration. I absolutely love the concept of this collection, the pastel colours and the delicious sounding names of the products. The colour palette is exactly what you think of for spring time.

The collection consists of glitters, paint pots, lipsticks, tinted lip balm, face powders, lustre drops, nail polish and two limited edition brushes. From this I picked up one of the two face powders. I chose In For A Treat over Pink Buttercream because when it comes to highlighters I prefer golden tones rather than pinks on my skin tone.

In For A Treat is described as a champagne base with matte coral flower and mint leaves. This face powder looks too good to use! The flower and leaf design is super cute. As described the main colour in this face powder is a peach toned champagne colour with gold shimmer. The outer section is a pearlised white shade also with gold shimmer. This is layered over the top of the champagne colour whereas the pink flower and mint coloured leaves go right the way through the powder.

The texture of this powder is soft and feels like velvet to touch. It is a very finely milled powder and goes on very smooth.

The pigmentation of this powder is good. Even though the flower and leaves are matte the overall appearance is highly frosted.

The 'Pearlmatte' formula is meant to be a highlighter and blush combined. In MAC terms I am an NW25 and I don't think this product would work as a blush for me. It is just too pale. As you can see from the swatch it practically blends in with my skin. I find it hard to believe this would work as a blush for even the palest of skins.

Never the less this is a fabulous highlighter. It works amazingly on tops of cheekbones, brow bone, along the centre of the nose and cupids bow. I have also used it very lightly across my entire face for a healthy glow.

If you can still get your hands on this product I highly recommend you check out your nearest MAC counter or store!
