MAC Full of Joy Blush

MAC Full of Joy Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “lavender” with a frost finish. It’s a pale, lilac-tinted pink with strong blue undertones and a satiny sheen. I wouldn’t classify it as a frost really–it’s not shimmery enough to be frosted. It has, perhaps, more of a sheen than your average satin finish blush, though. The most comparable shade I could think of was NARS Gaiety, which has a very blue base, but it’s a darker pink–this is much lighter, more spring-like. MAC Azalea Blossom is also darker, a bit purpler, too. Make Up For Ever Smooth Talker is similar in lightness but is pinker with blue undertones but lacks the lilac tint.

MAC Tres Cheek Blushes – Swatches Sneak Peek

I really thought I would be able to have everything reviewed by tomorrow morning, but it’s definitely not going to happen quite so quickly. I hope to have all of In Extra Dimension and Tres Cheek reviewed tomorrow, and then I will work on Reel Sexy, which likely won’t post until Friday. I always underestimate how long the process is! I would really appreciate it if you held off asking any questions regarding colors, dupes, textures, quality, wear, etc. until I’ve posted the review, because I will do my best to address all of those things and more at that time. Thank you!

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium tangerine with gold shimmer. On my lips, it gives them an orange-tint–it looks slightly darker and more like a tint than a colored gloss. There’s also a fine golden shimmer that catches light really well. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for this. It’s sheer yet tinted enough that it adds color and hue to my lips that reads as natural as it could ever be. Do you have any suggestions for a dupe? Perhaps I am being extra forgetful!

You asked for it, so here it is! :) I hope I covered everything!

P.S. — If the blush looks heavy, that’s because it is — I was testing out of the wear of a new cheek product. In order to see how well it wears and how much it fades throughout the day, it’s infinitely easier when I can make notes over a 6-10 hour period on how fast and how much it has faded that way!  I can only test one cheek product for wear per day, so I have to multi-task as much as I can!
