MAC Playland Purchases and Swatches

MAC Playland Collection

  
As we all know, I'm a bit of a MAC lover and I can never resist the collections. The Playland Collection had sold out of some of the things I wanted by the time I saw the email and went online, so I waited for it to come into my local store last Thursday. I resisted waiting at the door at 9am and casually strolled in at about 10, making a beeline for the stand. The two girls that were working both greeted me immediately and one of them - Lucy according to my receipt- happily wandered over to tell me about the collection and how it had launched that day (I was too embarrassed to admit the manager had told me earlier that week when I had asked).  She proceeded to tell me what each colour looked like and what they were wearing themselves.

As I has already been looking online I knew which shades I was going to buy, so I chose two Pigments and two Lipsticks, then off we went to the till! Both girls were wearing the look themselves, looking pretty edgy with the Neo-Orange Pigment under their eyes and lining the underside of their brows.

The lipstick I had my eye on straight away was Toying Around. On the website it's described perfectly as a "Hot Coral Pink". The coral is a subtle undertone, so it's perfect for anyone who wants to try coral but is scared to go all out.

I found it hard to choose between Sweet Experience and Red Balloon, but decided on Sweet Experience since I own far too many deep pinks and shy away from lighter shades. On the website Sweet Experience as a "Bright Pink' but I personally think it's a lot more of a light barbie pink. I'm not sure if I'm a fan of it on myself, as it kind of makes my lips look like I've had fillers (maybe not a bad thing, no?). I have quite dark lips naturally, so I think if I use foundation as a base to fade out my colour it might look a bit nicer.

I'm a little bit obsessed with pigments and I can't resist adding to my collection. They're so versatile and give an amazing effect when used with a little bit of water. I don't have many bright colours at the moment so I chose both Hi-Def Cyan and Neo-Orange. Both are really bright, but Neo-Orange is aptly named as it is almost fluorescent!

I'm really tempted to go back and buy the yellow/gold lipstick and pigment, I'm so intrigued! Have you been tempted by this fun collection yet?
