MAC Full of Joy blush

You know me. I am eternally on the quest to look "lit from within". I am not going to achieve this by living an uber-healthy lifestyle however. No I would rather sin with my dietary intake, stay up late and slap on cosmetics to fake it.

Enter MAC Full of Joy blush.



I should be a little embarrassed posting this as I know it's been out for months. I don't even attempt to keep up with the collections these days so I am no doubt going to repeat what everyone else has said. Still, this lavendar toned blush with its cool shot of pink has me all excited and I am going to carry on regardless.

This came into my life at a good time. My beloved Sue Devitt Soloman Islands is on it's last legs and I was looking for a similar tone that wouldn't necessarily require an online order from the UK. A glance at the MAC counter and I knew that Full of Joy was everything I needed.

As you will tell from the pictures I am literally piling this stuff on - with no apology. It's frost finish adds a glow - without glitter. It might be a bit much but it actually looks pretty, in a Sci-Fi dolly kind of way.

Clearly something HI-larious going on at my feet in the picture below:


(PS. I do own a hairbrush - honest!)

I must also add that the Real Techniques Blush Brush is just as sensational as everyone promised it would be. If you don't have it, don't hesitate in buying it.

Now tell a fellow blush addict what your favourite cheek product of the moment is! :)

  7. Addicted to Nars penny lane with a little bit of Mac well dressed over it - an old favourite of yours I think? From the lollipop26 days!

    What are you wearing on your lips?

    ReplyDelete
  8. i'm still rocking the douceur + penny lane combination and have been literally for MONTHS, they might be a bit too light for you now that you're so tanned!

    i just got that brush a couple of weeks ago as well (i tend to be late to all these product parties), and i'm still in awe, it's amazing, isn't it? so soft and so versatile! works for powder, bronzer, contour and blush!

    p.s. you look so beautiful in these pics!

  9. Looks lovely. Is that with no highlighter? Just the blush?

  10. Mine is Nars Multiple Stick in "MAUI" and Laura Mercier "Tender Mauve". I have an Olive Tan Skin, like "Hawaiian girls skin tone". I put on the nars multiple stick in Maui first and then put on Laura Mercier "Tender MAUVE" ON top of it. Stays there the whole day and looks very healthy and natural on my skin tone. If anyone else has the same skin tone as me. I would definitely recommend them these blushes.

  11. Favourite cheek product at the moment (and forever) is NARS Exhibit A blush. I just can't get enough and it works for my middle-eastern skin tone, as well as every other skin tone in the world.

  21. I'm loving cool-toned pink blushes that verge on lilac atm- don't they look amazing with a tan? Especially those that have that cool-toned shine!

    By the way, what's the name of the lipstick you're wearing? Is it the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine you've blogged before?

  24. Long time no blush post! :) This one looks lovely, I love the frosty effect! Must dig in my collection to find something like that, I've been into matte blushers for a long while now but if the sun shows up, I find some shimmer is always flattering :)

  51. For me it is always MAC Lady Blush which I apply with the Real Techniques stippling brush (my massive obsession at the moment). I am loving that blush on you it compliments your tan perfectly - unfortunately it doesn't look like it is available in UK :(

  54. the blush is wonderful on your skin. Seeing these pictures I wish I would be able to work with a blush so it doesn't look like a kid got access to mom's make-up bag :-(

  64. I'm a sucker for piling on the blush too, I can't get enough of the stuff. MAC dollymix is my favourite mixed with a bit of Topshop highlighter in sunbeam - creates the perfect 'glow'.
