Review & Swatches: Mac Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour in For Your Amusment + Young At Heart

Hey Guys and Dolls :)

I’m obsessed with creamy cheek products at the moment, not only for the great glow that they give, but the longevity, and easy blendability. So I decide to pick up two of the three Casual Color Lip & Cheek Colours from the Mac Playland Collection.

Mac_CasualColour_playlandCollection_1For Your Amusement is a light cool toned pink with a slight peachy undertone. The finish is matte yet gives a very subtle beautiful glow to the skin. Great pigmentation which can be sheered out due to its creamy buttery texture. It lasts all day on my skin without patching or fading.

Young At Heart is a bright medium pink with a matte finish. Again although it is matte it gives a nice subtle hint of glow. As is the case with For Your Amusement the pigmentation is fabulous, creamy smooth texture allows for easy blending, while it also being long lasting.

Although the product is marketed as a lip and cheek colour I prefer it only on the cheeks. Its a bit drying (weirdly) on my lips and is difficult to apply an even application, even with a lip brush. I do find it goes on smoother on the lips when a lip balm is applied prior to application.

THE VERDICT:

5/5 for these little pots of color. The pigmentation is spot on, the creamy smooth texture is great for blendability and the possibility to sheer out for a more subtle outcome. I would maybe knock down half a point for the lack of performance on the lips but I bought them strictly as cheek colors so no biggie.

What do you guys think, have you tried this Mac product before?
