Happy-Go-Rosy

MAC Happy-Go-Rosy Mineralize Blush ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (up to opaque in three layers), as marketed, that applied evenly and blended out fairly readily, though it took a smidgen more effort than some blushes, which I don’t find uncommon with more matte, richer hues like this shade. To make life easier, try lightly powdering prior to applying the blush, which will make blending a cinch. The consistency was smooth and just a smidgen dusty but not dry or chalky on my skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.11 oz. - $263.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "build lightly" and "glide onto skin" for "luminous color." Most shades in the range have more medium to semi-opaque coverage, which tends to be buildable to opaque coverage, but most shades are not truly sheer in coverage. The texture used to be drier but has become smoother and more finely-milled over the years. The finish is typically luminous but can be metallic or almost matte depending on the particular shade. They wear between six and eight hours on me.

This is such a beautiful shade and just the sort I gravitate toward. I know it’s matte but I can’t help wishing it had just a little bit of shimmer/sheen. Even so, I may well end up getting this, though I need it like a hole in the head!

This is such a fresh, pretty shade of wind-bitten pink that I will have to keep in mind for next “winter”. I’m not sure we ever had any real winter this year, hopefully different in the next one.

Nancy, I’d gladly share the winter we had this year with you….we had waaay more than any sane person could want! I like that term “wind-bitten” – sums up perfectly the look of this blush and others like it.

I like this blush but I absolutely am wild for the eye look you did so I went to check out what you used and saw that it’s the TF Nude Dip quad. That baby is whopping $102 in Canada and I see that the price in the US had climbed as well – to $85 (I think it was $74 when you first reviewed it). I am glad I have dupes for all the shades but, seriously Tom Ford’s prices are becoming prohibitive for a lot of people, even those who don’t mind spending a bit on makeup.
