Review - Mac Lipstick in Toying Around

Hello!

A couple of weeks go I popped to my local MAC counter to pick up a product I'd been after for a while, the Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. However, when I walked over to the counter the Playland collection was right there, staring me in the face and I knew I wouldn't leave feeling satisfied unless I swatched a couple of the lipsticks that were drawing me in. I ended up trying to pick between Sweet Experience, Happy Go Lucky and Toying Around, and after considering just getting all three, I left with a little less money in my bank and Toying Around in my hand.

Toying Around is an amplified finish, which is one of my MAC favourites. It's really creamy, really pigmented, not glossy yet not matte. It's definitely my go to finish. I find the amplified finish lipsticks always last really well on the lips and aren't drying, but on dry lip days they still work well if you apply a balm over the top. Of course you still need to do a little top up after eating, but that's to be expected with any lipstick. As always with MAC, Toying Around comes in the sleek little bullet packing with the ever so satisfying 'click' when you put the lid back on, not forgetting the sweet vanilla scent that you always get with a MAC lippy.
The colour of Toying Around is a beautiful bright coral pink that doesn't lean too much to the orange side but also isn't too pinky pink. After diving in to the world of orange and coral lipsticks this one has been happily added to my collection and is fast becoming one of my go to summer lipsticks. The colour of it is just beautiful and perfect for this time of year. Although it's quite bright it is really wearable and is a great shade for anyone who is looking for a muted down orange lipstick or wants to try out coral/orange shades. I've been wearing it with really simple eye makeup and bronzed up cheeks for a lovely simple summer look with a pop of colour.

Have you tried anything from the playland collection?
