Review: MAC Full of Joy


Recently MAC introduced a few new collections, one of which being Tres Cheek, a collection of six blush powders.

"Everyone loves when you blush. Fashioning your choices: A new sextet of M·A·C blush powders. Go hip in bright red-orange, or add a glorious touch of peach, pink or lavender – each shade staying as bright and un-beige on the skin as it is in the palette. With a formula that’s seamlessly sheer and unabashedly buildable, what do you get? a look that says Tres Cheek." -MAC Press Release

I initially passed on the collection as I have a pretty solid blush collection, and obviously, only one face. How much blush does one girl need? I happened to happen upon a swatch of Full of Joy on Instagram and knew it would have to be mine.

Full of Joy is a described as a lavender, but in person it does have a hint of pink. When worn sheer you only get a hint of lavender, but if you layer it up a bit you get a better dose. MAC labels this as a frost, which initially scared me a tad, but the finish isn't frosty at all. It has a luminous quality that is quite pretty and does not add unwanted emphasis to pores. This shade adds a nice feminine wash of colour and totally says spring to me.

In terms of shade, I didn't have anything similar. As you can see I compared Full of Joy to MAC Giggly and Azalea Blossom. Both are darker and lean more towards pink. Overall I'm quite happy that I didn't miss out on this shade. Did you pick up any of the Tres Cheeks shades?
