Give Lips and Cheeks Some Casual Colour With MAC – Pics and Swatches of Weekend Getaway and Out For Fun

MAC Casual Colour Weekend Getaway and Out For Fun

The MAC Casual Colour collection ($20) out for Summer 2012 consists of 8 limited edition shades.  The purpose behind these is that they can be used on either the lips and/or cheeks.  I chose two colors, Weekend Getaway and Out For Fun.  Weekend Getaway is a beautiful rosy pink color and Out For Fun is a more vibrant coral shade.

Each Casual Colour comes in a small pot with a screw top domed lid.  Each one contains 0.43 fluid ounce which is quite a bit considering that a MAC tinted lipglass contains only 0.17 fluid ounce.  These are almost exactly the same size (0.44oz) as the new Revlon PhotoReady cream blushers I reviewed last month.

The texture of these are very smooth and creamy.  Each one of the two shades I own are highly pigmented so a little goes a very long way.  When applied to the cheeks, they easily blend out with just your fingertips.  They dry down nicely and don’t leave a greasy look or feeling on my cheeks.

On the lips, these MAC Casual Colours have a nice silky feel without being sticky or thick.  They’re not quite as opaque like a lipstick but not quite as sheer as a tinted lip balm.  They fall nicely in between, giving my lips a good amount of color while keeping my lips moist and soft.

I really like these a lot.  I love the way they look both on the cheeks and on the lips.  These are perfect for Summer, nice and light.  I will get tons of use out of these and considering you only need a dab at a time, they’ll last forever.

When compared to the Revlon PhotoReady cream blushers, I like these way more.  They are better pigmented, creamier and easier to blend out.  And for only about $7 more, you get to use these MAC Casual Colours on the lips too!

So what do you think of these MAC Casual Colours?

  1. gosh, I love how these look on the lips! I was thinking of skipping these because I was afraid it wouldn’t work on my oily skin–but now I’m starting to think it’s worth it to just get these to use on the lips!!

    • I have oily skin too Becca and these actually work well on my cheeks. I was worried that they would just fade away on my cheeks but surprisingly they last about 6 hours even is this humid weather. They are great just for the lips but I would try it on your cheeks as well.
