MAC Casual Lip & Cheek Colour is a creamy, emollient blush and lip colour all in one. The shade For Your Amusement appears warmer coral pink in the pan, but is actually a cool-toned, pastel pink when swatched. It claims to be non-sticky, lightweight and dewy. Hmm, can a blush that feels like a gloss really do all that?
Let’s dive in and see how it performs!
- Pigmentation: Light, buildable to medium
- Finish: Dewy, slightly tacky
- Texture: Creamy, reminiscent of lip gloss
- Scent: Vanilla
- Lasting Power: Good, still visible on lip and cheeks at the end of the day
A beautiful, emollient and buildable formula. Yes, it is long lasting, lightweight and hydrating. The emollient texture and dewy finish would make this more suited for drier skin types. However, it does sink into fine lines on the lips and leaves a slight tacky feel on the cheeks.
I imagine this would look great on very fair ladies with cooler skin tones. If you’re fair but warmer toned, this might not be the shade for you. I’m around the range of Revlon Colourstay in Buff, the shade For Your Amusement is too pastel. It looks good as a blush but sickly as a lip colour.

I’m around the same skintone and I also avoid shades like this! The formula sounds interesting especially since it will be good for drier skin, though I’m rarely one for combination lip-cheek products. I think the last one I tried was a liquid YSL lipstick, but it’s bright red so I wouldn’t really have used it on my cheeks 😉 Lovely pics!
Mmm, that bright red sounds pretty. Maybe a tiny dab blended out might work on the cheeks? How was the formula? Rumour has it YSL makes great lippies.
(Ooo, now I know who to go to for swatches of flattering nail polish colours ;))
same thought. It looks so pretty as a blush but would wash me out as a lip color. Such a pretty pink though! Great review!
Thanks Mandy! 🙂
I’ve never tried this before, but it looks beautiful!
Indeed it is!
Although I have warm undertone, I love cool pinks xD This looks so pretty in the pan 😁 I’m sure I will look ashy with it. Anyways, amazing post! Keep it up. ❤
Fortunately, it can still work as a blush if used with a light hand 😉
ohh I see 😀
