Veronica's Blush

So, as you probably already know, M.A.C. Archie's Girls collection just came out on the 7th and I was so excited!!!! First of all who doesn't love M.A.C. also the theme for this collection was so adorable I had to have at least one item from it! So I decided to get the Pearl Matte face powder in the color "Veronica's Blush"

The Pearl Matte face powder is not really a blush, but it can still be used as that. It is supposed to be used as a highlighter, all over powder for a nice pinky glow, or as a light blush! The reason why I picked the Pearl Matte face powder from the Veronica side is because I think my complexion fits better with her colors, in the collection. I really liked the Betty one(which was more coral) but I don't think it would be as good on my skin tone.

So below, you can see what it looks like, and that it's already been used haha! It's very interesting that this product can have three different color outcomes. The hearts on their own are very pink, the base color is very light and looks more like a highlighter color, and then when you swirl them altogether it's a nice pink that is a little lihgter than the hearts on their own.

(from left to right: base and hearts swirled together, middle is just the light base color, and then on the far right is just the hearts!)

Now here is a makeup look I tried to upload a few days ago, but my computer was giving me trouble. I think this pinkish, plum look would be a great Valentine's day look, what do you think? I'm not using the "Veronica's blush" in this look, by the way! Hope you guys like this look!
