MAC Playland Collection Lipstick “Red Balloon” Review, Swatches And LOTDs
Hey ya lovely ladies 🙂
After a number of bleak collections MAC finally launched Playland in india which had ooh soo many bright colorful albeit quite similar to their permanent range lipsticks and lipglasses! Everyone promptly went ga-ga about it and everything got booked before I even reached the store. -_- A lovely friend though knew the shades I was pining for and picked them up from Bangalore. <3 mwahh..its the lipstick’s turn today- Red Balloon. 🙂
What MAC Says:
MAC Red Balloon is described as -a hot fuchsia with an amplified finish
Price: 1190/- INR for 3gm *its soon gonna be 1450/- so brace yourselves :(*
My Take on MAC Lipstick “Red Balloon”:
The packaging is nothing different thank goodness or the price would have been higher. 😛 Just kidding! We all are anyways fond of typical mac matte black and silver packaging with a tight click cap. 🙂
The texture of “Red Balloon” is amplified *the most popular finish of MAC I believe!* and is lovely, smooth, creamy and luminous. <3 <3 It feels so comfortable and spreads easily on lips without accentuating any flaky/dry lips or fine lines.
The color though called *red* balloon has really nothing red about it. 😀 It’s a pure bright cool fuchsia pink without any undertone of red. -_- * do we need an eye-checkup MAC dearies?* I loovvee the color and it brightens up my face in a swipe. 🙂 I adore cool toned pinks and Girl About Town is one of my all time favorites! This is a tad similar to GAT though is more pink than blue *if that makes any sense :P*
The pigmentation of Red Balloon is great and a single swipe results in rich, creamy opaque coverage <3
The lasting power is very good as well and easily withstands food and drinks for 4-5 hours +
The Pros of MAC Red Balloon:
- Classic black and silver MAC lipstick packaging <3
- Amplified finish- hence texture is awesome smooth and creamy, applies easily and evenly!
- Color is a bright cool leaning pink which looks so pretty on all types of complexions <3
- Great pigmentation- a single swipe is enough for opaque rich coverage.
- Lasting power is very good as well and withstands food and drinks for 5 hours+
- Yummy vanilla fragrance.
The Cons of MAC Red Balloon:
- Limited edition :-/
My Rating: 4/5 🙂
Do I recommend?
Lol! As I am probably the latest person on the planet to review something from the Playland collection everyone else am sure already has snagged this in-demand gorgeous pink from the range! If you have a friend abroad to procure it for you *this is for the more unfortunate people out there like me*do make sure you get this peppy pink shade. 🙂

[alert-note]Gorgeous shade. Would you believe if I say the Playland collection got launched 2 days back in Pune. 😐 I was hoping to pick Toying around, but sadly it was OOS and there were no testers too. -_- Did not pick this one as I didn’t want to end up with another fuchsia in my collection. O:) looks amazing on you though! Great review as always! :)[/alert-note]
