MAC Weekend Getaway Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Weekend Getaway Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool rose.” For some reason, I really want to describe this as a strawberry pink! It’s a subtly cool-toned medium-dark pink. As a blush, it add a pop of pink or built up to more true-to-pan color. Tom Ford Wicked looks a bit more plum. MAC Lovecloud is a smidgen lighter. Illamasqua Seduce is a darker pink. MAC Feeling Flush has more purple in it. Urban Decay Afterglow is very similar. On lips, it’s an opaque subtly blue-based medium pink. MAC Please Me is more yellow-toned. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji is less cool-toned. Revlon Carnation is darker. MAC Cheers All Around is just slightly pinker. Rimmel Dizzy is a smidgen darker.

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 trialed this yesterday for wear, it wore for seven hours as a blush and five and a half hours as a lip color, which was definitely on the longer end out of the eight shades of the new formula.  Weekend Getaway isn’t so cool-toned that it won’t flatter warmer complexions; there’s a subtle brightness in the overall color that makes it seem really effortless and appropriate for summer looks. Out of the eight, this one was my favorite–and it so pleased me to find it was one of the longer-wearing shades, too.
