MAC Lipstick Toying Around Review, Swatches & FOTD


 MAC Lipstick Toying Around


Hello pretty ladies,
I have been waiting for the MAC Playland collection and was especially eyeing two shades from this range. Samannita di is such a sweetheart to book them for me on my behalf, months before their actual launch in India, thus I got them without any hassle. The shades are Toying Around and Red Balloon. And today I’ll be reviewing the “Toying Around” for you all.


MAC Amplified Toying Around


Price: 1190INR for a 3gm bullet. You may get it from flipkart here.

My experience with MAC Lipstick Toying Around:

Packaging: The usual shinny black and silver bullet case. As it is from limited edition, I wish it came in a different package.

Shade: A bold bright vivid coral color with an orange lean and a neon like brightness to it, which I completely adore. But depending on the skin tone it can pull really pink or it can pull orange. On one swipe it is a very wearable coral and on two and more it adds that neonish glow to lips. Very sexy and can be a fantastic addition to every bright lipstick lover’s vanity.

Texture: I love MAC’s amplified finish. It is creamy, opaque, hydrating and gives a luxurious feel on lips. This is no exception either. Lovely texture and keeps lips moisturized for hours.

Pigmentation: Insanely pigmented. One swipe is enough for an opaque coverage and more than one gives bolder look.

Staying Power: I wore this the day I bought for night girls’ out. I wore it for 7 hours at a stretch. After 7 hours the bold neon look was gone, but I had a very pretty muted coral on me. My lips were as moisturized as they were those seven hours back.

Final Thoughts (Repurchase/Recommendation):
It has enough pink and orange to suit all skin tones and is beautiful on every season.

A stunning, utterly gorgeous shade with gorgeous pigmentation and texture. It is what I’ve been looking for months and it makes me feel totally beautiful and confident. It is an absolute winner of this collection.

Regarding repurchase, I am really into corals and I need a back up for this immediately..ooppss..!! A back up is not possible because it is LE, but shall be looking for a dupe. A drop-dead gorgeous lipstick for you all…!!

Rating: 4/5
