MAC Have a Lovely Day! Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Have a Lovely Day! Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral nude.” It’s a rosy, almost mauve-toned shade with hints of beige. Tarte Exposed is browner. Burberry Cameo is a bit darker, plummier. On the lips, it’s pinker, less visible mauve tones. MAC Annemiek is lighter. MAC Angel is pinker. Chanel Candeur is lighter.

For an in-depth review of the formula, please see this post. The main takeaways were that as a blush, this yields a dewy finish that might be just the wrong side of dewy for some, but it may be the perfect recipe for those with drier skin; as a lip color, the finish is more like a satin matte, and it has a slightly clingy nature that works as a way to make the color lightweight and very natural-looking.

When I tested Have a Lovely Day! on the lips, it wore for four hours. I’ve been testing out the wear of this shade since six am, so after five hours, it’s a bit faded and could use a reapplication. The texture is soft, creamy, and incredibly blendable; it’s buildable to true-to-pot color, but this lighter shade is impossible to overdo. It will be particularly great as an everyday shade on light to medium skin tones.

    Loving this on the lips and cheeks! Do you think this might be too light for a MAC NW30 skintone? Also could the dewiness be toned down with a translucent powder or even similar colored blush?

  2. Deb

    I guess the whole point is for lips and cheeks to match, but I don’t think I like that look. Seems very retro and not in a good way. A bit like matching turquoise t-shirt with turquoise socks instead of matching shoes. Not a fan of the shine, either. Thank you – you’ve saved me from the purchase I was about to make! :)

  3. Tiffany

    Oooh it looks like a dupe for the original Ladyblush blushcreme!

  4. ChelleBelle

    It would look so much better if the cheeks had a hint of color instead of this shellacking that is going on here. Looks great on the lips though.

  5. I really like this as a lip color! Looks very pretty!

  6. ChelleBelle

    Also the description is wrong, this is a neutral nude.

  7. Astrid

    Any ideas as to how this color compares with NARS Penny Lane cream blush?

  8. MIRIANV

    i LOVE it on the cheeks, but i’m just not quite sold on the color on the lips. i guess i’d have to try it.

  9. I can see this one someone with fair skin, but it’s not working for me on a medium complexion with warm undertones.  I’m also not fond of the super dewiness.  Maybe perfect for those with dry skin.  Definitely a pass for me.

    i love this!

    Wow, it does look rather dewy. Unfortunately too dewy for me but I love how it looks on you!

  12. Carla Souza

    Thanks for the review, Chris!
    Would it show on a NC40 girl?

  13. KRISTANNA

    ooh as a fair girl this is really pretty!!!

  14. Arlette

    Not keen on it as a cheek color, but loving it on the lips.

  15. hwendy

    ur eye makeup is amazing! love like beige y pink

  16. I really like this!
    Do you know how the color compares to MAC’s Tinted Lip Conditioners in Feelin Good and Calm Mode?

  17. It’s lovely but I’m not a fan of the dewy finish. Maybe I’ll test it in a store, if I have a chance, before I make a decision

  18. Veronica

    Oh man, that would be the perfect neutral pink for my lips.  I’m a little less thrilled by the sheen it leaves on the cheek stain, but that could easily be mitigated with a mattifying powder.  I’m going to give this a look tomorrow when I hit my MAC counter.  :)

  19. Hello, mauvey-pink. (Have I ever mentioned that I’m kind of obsessed with mauve undertones in products? Because, um, yeah.) 
     
    I think this formula might be too dewy for my tastes, judging by what you had said in the review, but I do really like the fact that they give you a lot of product for the price. And the silicone-free, paraben-free formula, of course! :D I think I might try to get in-store to give these a try before they sell out – I’m intrigued ;o) 

  20. Is it similar to mac ‘super’ kissable lip colour?

  21. Lola Cavendale

    Christine, do you consider Cremeblend Blush Brit Wit a dupe for it?

  22. Alejandra

    I love the look.Hey whats a good dupe for the eyeliner shade since the actual product didn’t get a good review(and since only eyeshadow dupes were mentioned)?

  23. Lita

    Would this work on NW45? and how does it compare to Mac Taupe as I wear that with no problems for an everyday look.

  24. this is beautiful on you!

  25. emily

    hey christine, do u know of a lipstick dupe of this color? doesnt have to be mac. im obsessed with this color but i would love a more convenient lipstick :) thanks
