MAC Keep It Loose Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Keep It Loose Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm peach.” It’s a soft warm-toned peach with a soft sheen. It seems to have a little pink in it. As a blush, it shows up without washing out my medium-colored complexion, which was nice. On lips, it takes on a pinker appearance–looks like a pale pink with subtle warm undertones. Make Up For Ever #14 is similar but has more peach in it. MAC Alpha Girl is similar but lighter. MAC You’re Perfect Already is a little pinker on lips. MAC Miami Coral is a bit darker, more coral. Chanel Flirt is pinker and more coral. MAC Ever Hip is more coral.

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.

This is going to be most flattering on light to light-medium complexions, though it should work on medium to medium-dark skin tones as well. It might be too light to work on deeper complexions without looking ashy.  I tested the wear of this shade as a cheek color yesterday, and it only managed five hours before it started a rather quick decline–it was almost gone after six hours. As a lip color, it held on for around three hours.
