Company’s Description

Pearlized and satin shades of Face Powder blend effortlessly to achieve an array of looks with a rich texture and velvet finish. Use for highlighting and blush effects. Baking Beauties flower and leaf design are stamped into the powder.

This review is for the two (2) limited-edition Pearlmatte Face Powders releasing with MAC’s Baking Beauties Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • In For A Treat: Champagne base with matte coral flowers and mint leaves
  • Pink Buttercream: Light silvery pink base with dark pink flowers and periwinkle leaves


Packaging: 9/10

The packaging is the same as for the Blush Ombres. Pearlmatte Powders come in plastic compacts with snap-shut, flip-up lids that are clear.

The pans are flat, divided into multiple shades, and embossed with flower designs.

Quality: 9.75/10

In For A Treat has a coral flower design on it with green leaves. The majority of the pan is a nude champagne color with a white ring surrounding the outer edge. Once all the colors are mixed together, you get a frosty white color.

Pink Buttercream has a pink rose design on it with blue leaves. The majority of the pan is a frosty pink color with a white ring surrounding the outer edge. Once all the colors are mixed together, you get a frosty white color, with the most subtle hint of peach.

The luminizing effect and color you get with both of these Pearlmatte Face Powders is very similar. Pink Buttercream is a little less strong.

The formula for these powders is incredibly silky and soft. The luminizing effect is intense. These won’t work as blush colors, but if you want less of a frosty white sheen, keep your brush in the middle of the pan.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

The silky formula glides across the skin effortlessly.

Price: 9/10

These powders are $30.00 each and contain 12 grams (0.42 ounces) of product. MAC’s Pearlmatte Face Powders, when released with the Vera Collection, were $28.00 each. MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes are $28.00 and contain 10 grams (0.35 oounces). MAC Beauty Powders are $23.00 and contain 10 grams (0.35 ounces) of product.
