Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder- Archies Girls Collection- MAC- £21.50
Now i'll let you in on a little secret, I saved the best until last.
Pretty much since the very first photos of this collection were released, way back in 2012, I knew that the one thing that I definitely had to get my little sticky paws on was one of the pearlmatte powders. The powders aren't grouped into the Betty/Veronica divide like many of the other products are but I think that Flatter Me is clearly Betty and Veronicas Blush belongs to Veronica.
The product has a warm peachy base with deeper coral/pink hearts. They can be used as seperate colours, or (as I have been doing) swirled together to create a subtle shimmer of warmth. There isn't a great deal of colour pay off and I have read some reviews that that said that there is no pay off from the hearts, I disagree, as I can see the pink undertones coming through on my skin tone.
Flatter Me is intended to be used as a multipurpose product- suitable as a highlighter, blush or eyeshadow, I am finding that on my skin tone it is best worn as a blusher, it is just slightly too deep to be worn as a highlighter. I think that the finish is very pretty and definitely helps create a flawless finish, perfect for a day when you just want to look all dewy and healthy.
I am wearing Flatter Me with YSL Touche Eclat in Beige Rose, Benefit That Gal, YSL mascara, Benefit Browzings and Nars Laguna Bronzer.
So, I think that I have proven two things. One, that I really like coral tones (has anyone noticed that all my purchases from this collection have been coral) and two, that I am definitely a Betty (again all of them were from her side of the collection). I'm tempted by Veronicas Blush as I think that it would make a better highlighter for my skin tone but I'm going to hold off buying until I have read a few more reviews.
Archies Girls Collection is exclusive until the 19th Feb to Selfridges. If you scroll down, I have also reviewed Cream Soda Blush and Betty Bright Lipstick.
