Having said that, the cute design of the Vera Pearlmate Beauty Powders intrigued me. The colors looked like I could use both for nice pearly blushes. Look at these!! They're so cute!!! First is Flower Fantasy.
The main color is a nice brick toned coral. It has accents of a cool pink and a pearly wheat color. You can use each color seperately if you're very careful and have the right size brushes or you can swirl them together. Being the impatient type and always in a hurry to get out of the house, I will be swirling.
The second powder is called Sunday Afternoon. The main color is a clean bright pink with an accent of fuchsia and the outer edge is a pearlized light pink. You can see both are embossed with Vera's trademark ladybug.
In the swatch below, Flower Fantasy is swatched to the left and Sunday Afternoon is to the right. Both are swirled with all the colors as I imagine I will wear them.
This morning, I had a very early appointment. I used a splash of foundation and Sunday Afternoon Pearlmate Beauty Powder to give you an idea of what it looks like on. Nothing else but mascara, so I apologize that it's a scary picture. I did use the lighter pearly color at the top of my cheekbone for a little accent.
You can see that these can be applied very naturally for a flush of color. I will try, in the future, using more of the main color to see if I get more of the standard blush result. Both are such beautiful colors and I'm glad I didn't pass them up. They are $28 each and both are still available on Mac Cosmetics online. You can also find them at Nordstrom. (I have an affiliate relationship with Nordstrom but not with Mac).
I've been waiting for our ten feet of snow to melt in order to feel springy and this little Pearlmate powder with the cheery colors and the ladybug does the trick!! What colors are you wearing to welcome in spring?
