I had been off from work in the past four days and was planning to make as many blog posts as I can. But, as with many plans, that did not happen. I spent most of those four days in bed, I was sick the first two days and spent the remaining two trying to get my grove back. I have to get back to work today, hopefully I can finish this post and have it out before I leave.
Love Joy is Part of MAC's mineralize blush range. I hope they never discontinue this blush because it's simply beautiful. It's one of my very first blushes from MAC and probably the most pigmented blush I own.
The blush is a brown shade with gold pearls. It's very pigmented so, a light application is more than enough to give the cheeks some warm glow. The gold pearls in the blush are not overpowering at all, it just adds some nice shimmer which makes makes the blush interesting. The powder is finely milled and does not have the slightly rough texture that some baked mineralize powders have. I use MAC 187 brush or Lunasol Cheek brush to apply and blend.
I haven't broken my 'no buy' yet, as a result, I have been using some of my 'earlier' makeup a lot and discovering treasures from my own stash. Love Joy is my latest discovery. This 'no buy' is turning out better than I expected.
