Beauty Blush Playground No. 3: MAC Blush in Full of Joy

Today on the blush carousel we have a MAC blush in the colour of grape fairy floss <3 I don’t have to many MAC blushes, but when I do buy a MAC blush, I tend to go for the more unusual colours. I was expecting Full of Joy to be a pinky-lilac satin blush – a little different but not majorly so. It turns out it is a frostย finish and much more lilac-y than I expected. In saying this, it’s surprisingly wearable. When I say it’s a frost finish – it doesn’t actually have any chunky glitter or any very visible shimmer. You have to look suuuuper closely at the powder to notice any shimmer at all. But what makes this shade interesting is that it has almost a slight metallic finish. Because of this metallic finish, the powder also has a transparency to it. The transparency is great – it means you don’t have to worry about looking like a Donna Summer video clip gone horriblyย wrong! It’s all the right kinda shine while being slightly subtle at the same time! <3

I know this colour won’t be everyone’s cup of tea – but what I wanted to show you on this very blush carousel, is the variety of blushes out there which are actually pretty wearable and which may brighten up your day more than expected! I think with spring upcoming in Aus, it’s the perfect time for some colour inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚

Above: Full of Joy on my cheeks ๐Ÿ™‚ the blush is brighter in real life. Blush tends to come out slightly muted in photos. You can see the tone of the blush in the photo however and it’s gorgeous in person!

Jasmine has started blooming earlier than usual this year, which I’m hoping means that Spring is well and truly on it’s way here in the Southern Hemisphere! I picked a few small Jasmine buds from our Jasmine bush and while there’s only two flowering buds, the smell is soooo intense hours later after picking that I swear it’s magic… I also took a few more pics of my garden for you to enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Awww hun you look amazing!Like glowing ๐Ÿ™‚
    I really like the blush and it looks pretty on you, but I think that kind of shade may crash with my ginger hair? What do you think?
    Hope everything’s going awesome! <3

    • Oh thank you lovely! Maybe because Spring is coming to Australia? And I think I took the photo at the right time because I’m dealing with a mini break out right now haha I’m doing ok – working lots while my boyfriend is overseas visiting family without me ๐Ÿ™

      Hmm I’m not sure if it would work for you – I think it’s one of those things where you have to try it to know! Though I think a purple/lilac stain might work (without the shimmer/shine – I think shimmer may be to problematic) like Lollitint by Benefit! Sometimes a little clash is a good thing – if it’s subdued, because it will make your eyes and hair pop (like how they say to use eyeshadows to make your iris pop with contrasting colours)! As long as the colour isn’t competing with any other colour or product, if you know what I mean. I think we play it safe to much sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

      You must getting nervous! The big day is coming up – eeek! I’ve been enjoying all of your updates ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Aww too bad the BF is away! Hope he’s back soon. I hope everything else is goind awesome, and you’ re enjoying the upcoming spring!
    I totally agree with you, a little clash can be good! But it really depends on the shade itself. Will try to check Full of Joy next time I go to a MAC store.
    I’m kind of nervous indeed, but I feel like I’m not the one getting married sometimes. Idk, it’s a little weird. Very happy tho!
