MAC Fruity Juicy: Oh My, Passion! Pearlmatte Face Powder

Monday, May 29, 2017

A couple weeks ago, MAC launched their annual summer collection called Fruity Juicy: "Shake up the summer with a frootilicious collection of sun-kissed succulence. Take a sweet vacation of tropical colour for lips and eyes." This collection features a total of 22 products, 16 of which are new and limited edition, four are re-promotes and limited edition, and two are permanent. Fruity Juicy sees the launch of one new and limited edition Pearlmatte Face Powder, which is described as "a face powder with pearlized and satin shades [that] feature a rich texture [and] velvet finish. Can be used as a blush and highlighter. Also suitable for eye area." The powder features "a flirty flower pattern pressed into it" and is housed in "special packaging with tropical fruit and floral print." Each Pearlmatte Face Powder contains a total of 8 grams of product, and retails for $38.

Oh My, Passion!

Oh My, Passion!

Oh My, Passion! features a floral design of a medium tan bronze, a light champagne yellow, a medium coral pink, and a medium pinked lilac. When mixed together, they create a light-medium warm muted pinky peach with a gold pearlized sheen. This is a new and limited edition shade. It has a soft, finely-milled texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is more muted and more peach than Warm Soul, more muted and more golden than Style, more muted and more peach than Springsheen, darker and more golden than New Romance, and darker and more peach than Beaming Blush.

Oh My, Passion! is way more wearable and more flattering than I ever would have thought just by looking at it. Of course, the hibiscus pattern embossed in the powder is charming and lovely, and the packaging of Fruity Juicy as a whole is adorable and super summery, but the actual powder itself is stunning. It has a soft, finely-milled texture, with incredible pigmentation, full colour pay-off, and a smooth, even application. On fair to medium-dark skintones, this works beautifully as a gold-infused peach highlighting blush. Obviously, if you love a bright, beaming highlight, you can always add a highlighter on top of Oh My, Passion!, but it gives a really beautiful gold sheen on its own. On dark to deep-dark skintones, this will work as a gorgeous peachy gold highlighter that leaves the skin softly illuminated and never ashy. Either way, it'll make skin look glowy, smooth, and diffused, and the more you blend out the powder, the more luminous it becomes. What I love about this, too, is its versatility — it works beautifully with other products, whether it's bronzer, contour, blush, or highlighter. I've used it to buff out a brighter blush, on top of bronzer for warmth and glow, with contour for a more naturally sculpted look, and with highlighter as a transition shade. However you choose to use it, it's an incredible face product and a definite summer must-have.
