I was pretty much sold on the MAC in Lillyland collection the instant I saw the Cremeblend Blushes. I knew they had potential to be amazing and decided to go investigate last week when the collection hit counters. And let me tell you, these blushes do not disappoint, especially Joie de Vivre!
Joie de Vivre is a pinky coral that I can see flattering every skin tone. On my fair skin, it’s a welcoming pop of color that brightens my entire complexion. The texture on these are not slippery or oily in any way and are a dream to work with. They are not as bold as pictured in the pan, but aren’t weak on pigment either. When blended with fingers, it’s a more subtle application that can be built up. When used with a brush - I’ve tried with both the MAC 188 and Sonia Kashuk’s Flat Blusher Brush – it blends into the skin seamlessly. I especially like using the denser Sonia Kashuk brush.
I’ve been wearing this blush every day since I bought it! I’m obsessed and majorly lusting after the other shades now as a result. Anyone else check these out? Sharing the obsession? Let us know your thoughts.
