MAC describes it as a "deep, dirty blue-pink with gold pearl" and I think that's a fair and pretty accurate telling of its color. The gold pearl is very subtle, though, therefore it doesn't interfere but works with the pink to allow a luminous sheen to the cheeks. Luminous, but not sparkly. Sheen, but no shine. It's an easy, everyday blush that works all year 'round. For your review, I'd like to talk a little about MAC's Mineralized Blush in Gleeful.
Gleeful is one of eight shades from MAC's mineralized blush lineup. It is a finely milled, baked blush with a surprisingly smooth texture. It does not feel rough or dry to the touch at all. Absent are the veining and separation of color one often finds in mineralized products; the dusty pink is consistent throughout with the gold pearl being barely visible to the eye.
The blush's soft dome yields a hearty amount of color. It's a fully pigmented color that's not all the way opaque, but rather lends a lovely, rosy veil to the face.
I am really fond of this blush and the way it feels, the color, the color payoff and how it lasts all day on me. It's a shade that would befit a wide range of skin tones and its buildable coverage makes it versatile enough to wear day or night. And now that spring has just about sprung, I believe Gleeful may be worth checking out if you're on the hunt for a new hue to rock for the new season.
MAC's Mineralized Blush in Gleeful can be found at MAC stores and retails for $25.
