Mooi new make-up collections from MAC: Playland and MAC x Proenza Schoeler

MAC’s always had killer limited edition collaborative collections and, to this day, I still mourn the fact that those Hello Kitty items of yesteryear have long left the shelves – both of those blushers were perfection for my skin tone. Still, it’s all onward and upward, right? So let’s take a look at one of MAC’s latest limited edition collection, Playland.

A a super fun, whimsical collection, Playland is mostly for girls looking to have a little fun as well as those that are very brave. I mean, not everyone can pull off yellow lipstick, right?

Ready for some fun?

Still, just because you don’t want to ride the rollercoaster it doesn’t mean you’re not going to have fun at the fairground. I’m really looking forward to getting in store to try out the darker fuchsia-coloured lippie, ironically called Red Balloon. (It’s fourth from the left in the piccie up top next to the regte red shade.) I suspect I’ll fall in love with it as it looks so much like Lickable, my favourite MAC lippie to date. Those little pots on the right are called Casual Colours. They’re lightweight all-in-one hues for lips, cheeks and eyes but, in my opinion, do their best work when they’re on your cheeks. Not keen on the (neon) bright side of life? You might appreciate another limited edition collection, MAC x Proenza Schouler.

Tres NYC. Oh yes.

The brand teamed up with the super cool NYC fashion label and the result is a small collection of eclectic shades prettily packed in ‘oil slick’ ombre, (this season’s nail colour du jour, by the way.)

Pretty, pretty!

Lippies from left to right: Woodrose, Pinkfringe, Mangrove and Primrose. The pink blush is Sunset Beach and the coral one is Ocean City.

I was given one of the lippies to try, a shade called Mangrove (R300), which I didn’t think I’d love as I don’t feel comfy in coral. But surprise, surprise, it’s got enough red in it to be super flattering and makes my blue eyes pop.

Love this!
There’s enough ‘blue’ in this shade to also create the illusion of whiter-looking teeth too. Love that!

If you’ve seen anything you like, keep an eye out and move fast. Once everything sells out, it’s gone for good. Alternatively, sign up via MAC’s local website to be one of the first to know about and shop their stuff anytime something new hits the shelves. Love, love Leigh
