Swatch: Powder Perfect Deceptively Sweet

The product in this post was purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

Good morning! I was so pumped to get my first ever bottles of Powder Perfect the other day! If you don't know the brand, Powder Perfect is an Australian indie who also happens to be a stockist for international brands--including ALIQUID Lacquer!! When I sent Jacinta some of my polishes to sell down under, she sent back some of hers for me!

Deceptively Sweet appeared in my Gimme That Polish! for June, so I was especially happy to get my hands on it! It has a warm lavender base (slightly warmer than it appears here) with gold shimmer. What makes this polish especially interesting is that I think the gold shimmer is actually purple with a gold flash, so you end up with a combo of muted purple and sparkly gold flecks. Check it out:

Powder Perfect Deceptively Sweet. Two coats with Out the Door topcoat.

Can you see the little purple flecks? (Click the picture to enlarge it if need be.) They give the polish a very subtle texture that makes it more interesting than just gold shimmer alone would. It's understated but very classy!

I was happy with the formula (on the thinner side), opacity and dry time. The polish dries with a slightly gritty texture that was smoothed out with topcoat. The only thing I wasn't totally in love with was the brush--it's somewhat mop-like, although not to the point of making application difficult.

You can buy Deceptively Sweet at Powder Perfect's shop if you're in Australia; they also have a list of stockists there for international folks! The shop is going on vacation for about month starting Sept. 15, so get your orders in soon!
