MAC Full of Joy blush Sometimes I feel like MAC puts out a new collection a week. I went through a period where I actually bought things from each one, but I’m now good with sitting most of them out. But when I got an email about their spring blushes, I did go straight out and pick up MAC Full of Joy blush.

MAC describes Full of Joy as, “Lavender.” (Yes, that simple.) And for a while now, I’d been looking for a shade just like that to wear with my very purple-toned lipsticks (like so and so). MAC Dame blush has been my go-to since I picked it up about half a year ago, but I couldn’t help but be tempted by the idea of an actual lavender blush.

Well, as you can see, it’s not ACTUALLY lavender, but it is a very lavender-toned pink. I was surprised to see it was a frost when I applied it, since it doesn’t look shimmery in the pan. But it’s not like a glitter bomb on your face or bad 80s metallic lipstick. It just gives a somewhat luminous sheen. I probably would have preferred a matte, but maybe you need the touch of frost to pull off a color like this? You can help me decide.

It blends well, so you can minimize the frost, though it actually winds up looking quite nice. And it wears well. At 2 in the morning, it was gone, but it had been there up until a normal hour. 😉

And here’s how it looks in the wild.

Overall, I’m quite happy to have this in my arsenal, though I may still be keeping an eye open for a matte version. (But the color is perfect for my needs!)

  1. Makes total sense that you would need a blush like this. The shimmer aspect reminds me of an old Clinique highlighter palette that I still use (and I even use it as eye shadow sometimes.) It also looks like it would be good for blending with other blushes that are more matte to give them a little something extra.

    • The Dame blush is a good neutral color, but I really wanted a pink that leaned more purple. Maybe they'll come out with one without any shimmer, though!

  2. Shani! You need to go and try the Proenza Schouler for Mac collection. I bought the Mangrove lipstick and it is seriously perfection.. they were out of the blushes but they looked absolutely beautiful… and I agree, Mac has a new collection every week! xx
