MAC has SO much good stuff right now... Seriously.
This week, I'll be sharing a lot of new pretties from the new collections, so look for more of these posts throughout the week!
Naturally, I had to start with this super bright and fun collection that very much reflects it's name, Playland.
Available online and in store now
through May 29, 2014
The collection contains 6 Lipsticks, 5 Lipglasses, 3 Casual Color pots, 4 Pigments, and 4 Chromagraphic Pencils all in super bright and playful shades.
Let's check out what I have from the collection!
First off, the lipsticks:
(left-right) RED BALLOON hot fuchsia (amplified), PLAYLAND frosty yellow gold (frost), TOYING AROUND hot coral pink (amplified)
First of all, I LOVE the amplified formulas for super bright shades like this. It gives super opaque color, but still with a gorgeous shine which makes the shade really come alive. Both of the amplified shades are gorgeous, but Toying Around is my favorite. Playland is a little more daring, but is actually pretty sheer so it could be layered over brighter shades for a more dimensional look.
Next up, (probably my favorite products I have from this collection) two of the Lipglass shades:
(top-bottom) CAROUSEL creamy pink, LIVE IT UP creamy orange
Crazy gorgeous, right? These are so pigmented and opaque! I love love love them. Especially the gorgeous orange.
Next, Chromagraphic Pencils:
(top-bottom) HI-DEF CYAN hi-def cyan, GENUINE ORANGE bright orange
These pencils are serious business. You can definitely see what amazing payoff they have, which is pretty unique. The consistency is perfect, in that they transfer to your skin like that of a creamier pencil, however, they really have a drier feel that instantly "sets". These are awesome for creating bold and daring pops of color really anywhere on the face.
And finally, two of the Pigment shades:
(left-right) HI-DEF CYAN cyan blue, EVER SO YELLOW soft yellow with pearl
Hi-Def Cyan is one of the prettiest pigments I own. You can see just how opaque and bright the color is. It's so beautiful! The Ever So Yellow isn't quite as opaque after it's first blended, but it is very build-able which is nice. It can be worn sheer as a soft wash of pearly yellow, but can easily become the bright yellow shown in the swatch with a few layers of color and some blending.
The collection is available now in stores and online here.
