MAC Playland Collection Picks, Reviews, Swatches!
MAC Hi Jinks! and Young at Heart Casual Colours Review
Show me a multi-tasking product. I'll resist for a while though I know this is futile and I will cave in eventually, inevitably. I've had a quick peek at the new MAC Playland Collection, aptly named - it si full of brights... Though like a kid in a candy store I am drawn to vibrant pinks and corals, I have managed to show some self restraint. Most of thee colours appear over and over wih tons of dupes from macs own permanent range and even drugstore lines. And instead of buying the entire collection, I walked away with just two duo-tasking lip cheek products - the MAC Casual Colours in Young at Heart and Hi Jinks!

Young at Heart caught me by surprise. I have not comfortably worn bright pink lips in years I believe and I have fallen into the makeup rut of neutrals and nude pinks. When I saw this milky blue pink however, I remembered how much these colours light up my face and will make a good transition shade back to the times when I was more makeup savvy - with bright lipsticks.

Hi Jinks! Is a reddish coral. This is quite dupeable, Bobbi Brown have also launched a similar shade in their pot rouge formula... You know when you have a colour that you just gravitate to and purchase time and time again without thinking? Yep that's me with corals.

Though being creams, these two have no hydrating abilities and can dry out unmoisturised lips. Make sure your lips are properly exfoliated and balmed before applying these to make the most of that luscious pout!

Have you picked up anything from this collection?
