MAC always finds the most intriguing people to collaborate with. Sometimes I personally have never heard of them, but the fun products that are featured in these collections always inspire me to do my research.
If you search the words "Vera" and "Artist" you're going to get a TON of hits, most of them not who you're looking for. The artist that is known as Vera, is actually Vera Neumann. A description from the book Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon (which I thought said it best) "Legendary designer and artist Vera Neumann (1907–1993) believed in art’s ability to inspire and enrich lives. An innovator and one of the most successful female entrepreneurs of her time, Vera built her company on a radical philosophy: fine art should be accessible to everyone, not just a select few. Known for her iconic images of cheerful flowers, trendy geometrics, and vibrant ladybugs, she believed people should surround themselves with beauty."
In the collaboration with MAC we see a lot of what Vera was known for, and in the Pearlmatte Face Powders, we definitely notice that cute little ladybug ;) In the Vera Collection two Pearlmatte Face Powders are available - Flower Fantasy, and today's post of Sunday Afternoon.
What the MAC website has to say about Vera Pearlmatte Face Powder:
Embossed with her signature ladybug motif, this powder could only be M·A·C Vera. Three shades in both pearl and matte finishes. Effortless to blend, provides a dynamic highlight for face or eyes. Limited edition.
12 g / 0.42 US oz
Sunday Afternoon(clean, bright pink/bright clean fuchsia/soft pale pink with white pearl) is a beautiful sheen of pinks. These shades blend together to make the perfect pigment of pink (say that 5 times fast!). You can work this to be more of what you need (highlight, cheek color), but all of the shades blended together is my personal favorite way to use Sunday Afternoon.
MAC Vera Pearlmatte Face Powder retails for $28.00 and is available at maccosmetics.com as well as at MAC counters and stores.
