A playful and limited edition collection released from MAC in April called Playland. The shades are intensely girlie but with a vibrant kick. This post is all lip & cheek (I didn’t pick up or receive any of the Pigments or Chromagraphic Pencils released within this collection) but I think you’ll see there’s at least one product to suit everyone’s styles.
This collection wasn’t huge, but the shades were definitely fun and not so much for the faint of heart. People who like a more neutral look will probably love one or two items, though. I have five of the products to share with you today in Bright Side Lipglass, Sweet Experience Lipstick, Head in the Clouds Lipstick and Casual Colours in For Your Amusement and Hi Jinks!.
For Your Amusement (bright pastel pink) and Hi Jinks! Casual Colour (bright coral). I’ve reviewed a few of these products in the past and I am a fan! They’re able to be used on the lips and cheeks to give off a simple yet coordinating look. These tend to work better (longevity wise) for me as a blush, but I love to wear them on my lips. It’s not a moisturizing formula, but it’s also not drying. It just gives that natural, supple effect. Especially Hi Jinks! MAC Casual Colors currently retail for $21.00 each.
Bright Side Lipglass is described as a creamy yellow. It’s pretty sheer with a very slight yellow tint and golden shimmer. As intimidating as it is in the tube it’s actually quite beautiful on the lips. There was also a yellow lipstick in this collection named Playland! MAC Lipglass currently retails for $15.00.
Sweet Experience Lipstick is described as bright pink, amplified. This is generally not a shade I gravitate towards but it looked so pretty on that it’s inspiring me to venture out of my lipstick box of mostly sheers, nudes and reds. I felt that wore well with good pigment, though the more passes I did with it I noticed that it started to bald out in some places. MAC Lipstick currently retails for $16.00.
Head in the Clouds Lipstick is described as red with pearl, frost. Of course you guys know that I had to buy the red from this collection. How gorgeous is this?! It’s a warm red with golden shimmer. I personally see it as more of a holiday red, but the formula was really nice and opaque and since it has glimmer it can totally work for the sultry nights of Summer! MAC Lipstick currently retails for $16.00.
I was most impressed with the Casual Colours from this collection, particularly Hi Jinks! It looks fantastic and natural dabbed on the lips lightly. It’s the perfect, beachy tint! And, as of this posting, it’s still available!
