Here's the last bit of my Archie's Girls release items to review. Good news is, this particular Pearlmatte is still available online- so grab yours while you can! I know if you're eyeing it, pick it up- The pearlmattes are always going to be lovely and I'm grateful I could pick these items up in time.
This post is about the darling little box on the right- Veronica's Blush Pearlmatte Beauty Powder
Out of the box is a lovely white plastic compact with the graphic below on the face of the lid. I can't decide who I like better- Betty or Veronica? I think I'll go with Miss V- she's more exciting and this is her blush after all!
Touted by MAC as a silvery pink base with deep pink hearts, when I opened it up, I felt that was pretty apt. The base color is an icy, silvered light pink and the hearts are candy blue-based deep pink. Overall the compact has a pearlized gleam to it that is really pretty. Base pink color is Play It Proper and the hearts are Frankly Scarlet blush- but it seems online debate is saying that if it is, it's not pulling off the pan that way.
To use this, it's recommended as a highlighter or a blush if you're quite pale. I'm the latter and this is a highlighter for me. I like to take a dense brush and press the powder just above the apples of my cheeks and bridge of my nose for a soft gleam. Or setting some cream color base in Luna for a more dramatic dewy effect.
What I love is that this isn't as cutesy as I was dreading this to be. It's quite a decent sized product and the hearts are rather well done, embossed into the powder that I find myself admiring just how pretty it is. I'm happy I picked this up!
Below you can gather a little of the pearl effect this has. It's not a flat icy pink powder- more like what I wish my skin looked like after airbrushing. Good news is, the pink hearts aren't just coloration on top of the powder- they go all the way down. Hooray!

Did you pick this up or pass on it? I'm excited to use it and I hope it gives my winter skin a little glowy goodness to combat the cold. It's such a pretty little pan of cuteness, it makes me happy just to look at it. Hope it does for you too.
Have a great day!
