'Veronica Blush' Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powder: £21.50 from Selfridges 

From the packaging I would say I look more like Archie than either of the girls, but hey ho what can one do? I love Mac's latest collection and got extremely excited when I saw the products available, thus I hurried to Selfridges as quickly as possible. I can't say many of the limited edition products have stood out to me before, so I don't know what was different this time, maybe the retro theme? As soon as I saw this pearlmatte face powder I knew It needed to be mine.

The powder came in two different shades 'flatter me' which was part of Betty's line, and the one I chose, 'veronicas blush'. Flatter me is more of a coral shade, which I think is better for more olive skin tones, veronicas blush has a pearly pink base with deeper pink hearts which I find suits my pale complexion a lot better. It's very sheeny and I find you need to do quite a bit of a swirl in the palette to get enough powder for it to really show, however I find it absolutely gorgeous. It can be used as a blush, highlighter or even eyeshadow, but I think I will use it as an all-round blush - it really is as pretty on the skin as it is in the compact.

I was after the  'daddy's little girl' lipstick too, however they were sold out at the time of purchase, maybe I shall check all the other Mac stores soon!

Have you delved into the Archie's Girls collection? if so what did you buy?

  1. This packaging is so gorgeous, I'm very tempted to pick up something from the collection! - I wish I wasn't so easily dragged in by packaging though, I already own so many blushers! xx
