Red Balloon - MAC Playland Collection

A while ago, I had a little accident at MAC and my bank balance got severely injured, and that included two items from the MAC Playland Collection. One of those items is a lipstick I had had my eye on for quite a while and had swatched so many times I had lost count, so I finally bit the lipstick bullet and bought it. That lipstick was a lovely little Summer shade named Red Balloon!

This lipstick is a bright cool toned pink, described as "hot fuchsia" and has an amplified finish. The application is amazing - it glides on your lips beautifully due to it's gorgeous creamy formula and it applies with no tugging and has impressively high pigmentation, one sweep is more than enough to get a beautiful opaque finish and it feels comfortable and buttery smooth to wear. Of course, this smells just like the rest of the MAC lipsticks, vanilla! I really do love the scent of their lipsticks. 


The wear time is impressive - a good few hours before any touch ups are required. I have been wearing a small amount of this for work and then rubbing it in with my fingers a few hours later when it's started to wear and I've found it kind of has a stained effect and lasts a little longer when I do that which is definitely a bonus at work when I don't have time to reapply this lipstick.

I am SO happy I have finally picked this up and I can't believe how much I have worn this lipsticks since getting my paws on it, it's definitely become a firm favourite for the Summer months!

Have you tried anything from the Playland collection? If not, What is your favourite Summer lipstick?

  1. This is so beautiful, I usually can't pull off bright lips but this would be the perfect shade for me since it's a more subtle tone x
