MAC Casual Colour

MAC Casual Colour is a new limited edition collection perfect for the summer months. Why? Because the main feature, which are the Lip & Cheek Colours, are a two in one product and so easy to use. Also super convenient to just pop in your bag and be done with it!

This collection not only features eight Lip & Cheek Colours, but also Studio Fix Lash Mascara, Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, Prep + Prime Highlighter (in two shades) and four Nail Lacquers.

Let’s dive into the Lip & Cheek Colours, shall we?

The Lip & Cheek Colours come in a pot, very similar to their Lip Conditioner (which I love). They are made to be used as blush and lip colour, if you so desire. When used together they create a nice matchy-matchy effect, which I kinda like. They aren’t sticky, have no scent and nicely pigmented. Just a little bit on the cheeks goes a long way.

Lazy Sunday is a light pink. This is definitely the hardest one to wear because it’s super pale and made me look corpse-esque.

Relaxation is a medium pink. Very pretty, totally my kind of shade. Not too warm or cool.

Evening Stroll is a violet shade. I thought this would not work on me at all, but it actually does! Like it!

Weekend Getaway is a cool toned rose pink. Another one I would wear all the time.

Please be kind and ignore the dark circles under my eyes. 🙂

Keep It Loose, Have A Lovely Day!, Keep It Casual, Out For Fun

Keep It Loose is a warm toned peachy/nude shade. This one is really light on my cheeks and lips.

Have A Lovely Day! is a nude/beige. Pretty, I like this one a lot for a nude look.

Keep It Casual is a red/brown shade and the darkest one. It still manages to work with my skin as long as I use a little. The lip shade is really nice. Not too bright.

Out For Fun is a coral shade and one of my favs. Love the lip shade especially on me. Great for summer!

MAC Casual Colour Nail Lacquer
Style Tip, Please Me

Style Tip is a nude creme. Too close to my skin tone for me, not much of a fan of this one. The formula was ok, not as streaky as most MAC cremes are. This was two coats.

Please Me is a medium warm pink creme. The shade is nice, though not that unique I don’t think, but the formula was streaky. This was two coats.

Overall: I truly love these Lip & Cheek Colours. The only shades I wasn’t totally over the moon for were Lazy Sunday, Keep It Loose and Keep It Casual. If I had to pick mt top 3 favs they would be Relaxation, Evening Stroll and Out For Fun. As far as the nail lacquers, meh, I would say skip ’em. I don’t understand why MAC nail lacquer is so bad when it comes to cremes!

Availability: MAC, Nordstrom.

Pricing: Lip & Cheek Colours ($20 for 0.43 oz), Nail Lacquers ($16 for 0.34 oz).

So which of these, if any, do you like?
