Powder Perfect Egyptology Series

Powder Perfect does glam like few others. If there is a shiny thing around, you can bet that Ms Jacinda will find a way to bottle it for us. The new Egyptology Series is full of mind-blowingly amazing shades. 

Powder Perfect Egyptology Series


(promotional samples ahead)

Divine Pharaoh
This is a strange polish. Looking straight on, I would call it a sandy gold holo filled with microglitters. But then I saw it at an angle, and there was this green flash...and I ran out of words. If you want a gold with a little attitude for Winter/Fall then I suggest this one. The formula is even and easy, and there is no fussing needed to apply these glitters. It does dry slightly textured, like all microglitters, and I used two medium coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Hathor
This is a fresh, raspberry pink holo with microglitters. I need lipstick in this color. Isn't is amazing? The glitters give off the softest gold sheen, like it is being lit with candle light. The formula is easy, and I did zero clean-up for these pictures. It does dry with a slight texture, so I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

Heka
This is a warm, ruddy plum holo with microglitters. It has brilliant violet sparks at times, and a warm underflash. Again, the formula is spot-on. I expect nothing less from Powder Perfect at this point, honestly. This one is also slightly textured so I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Horus
This is a warm wine holo with microglitters. It absolutely reminds me of blood, and I can guarantee that I will be bringing this back out for Halloweeny things. The formula is, again, spot the hell on and I only needed two coats for these pictures. It does, again, dry with a slight texture, so I also used a layer of Seche Vite.

Weighing the Heart
This is a soft rose holo filled with coppery microglitters. It is a the delicate sister of this family, and my kids have already requested it twice. But it's mine. The formula is good, and it gave me no trouble. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Mother Goddess
This is a warm denim holo with microglitters. It is one of the more sparkly shades, in my opinion...blues are pretty good for that. The formula is beautiful, and I used two normal coats here. It does have a slight texture, so I also used a layer of Seche Vite for a glossy finish.

Ra
This is a golden champagne holo filled with micro glitters. It is deceptively sheer if you do thin coats, but it can easily be made opaque in two medium coats or three whisper thin ones. It does, like all the rest, have a slight texture when dry. If you want a glossy finish, do like I did and add a layer of Seche Vite.

Saqqara
This is a firey orange holo filled with microglitters. Like all of them. I know, I know...it does get repetitive when describing these. But they are so sparkly. This one has a gold sheen that warms up the cool-leaning base color. The formula, again, is fab. I used two coats for these pictures. To make it glossy, I tossed a layer of Seche Vite on everything.

Scarab
This is an inky cerulean holo filled with every microglitter I have ever met. This is definitely in the short list for favorite shades from this collection. The formula was lovely, and two coats will be just perfect. For a glossy look, you'll want to add a layer of Seche Vite.
