  3. neshie

    Any time any collection has the word ‘coral’ in it, my wallet and I sigh in desperation…

  5. Beautiful colorful collection!

    xx

  6. oh man. do you have these in your possession right now? #demlippies LOL

    Happy to finally see these photos here – and a legit release date!

    I was really looking foreword to see swatches from this collection , thanks for hard work you do in your blog

  9. Not going to lie, VERY excited over the lipsticks! The lipglosses look craptacular lol

  10. Oooh nice campaign if the quality and pigmentation is there. Definitely need a couple of the chromagraphic pencils and maybe the red pigment.. and more lipstick..

  11. Love it! Probably won’t order anything but I absolutely love how cheerful and eye catching the colors are. But I can’t keep up with all the releases from so many companies…

  12. That top photo does absolutely nothing for me in terms of piquing my interest in this collection – particularly the woman seated on the child’s riding toy – she looks stoned or medicated out of all emotion or interest. YUCK.

  13. faerieevenstar

    oooooh! I love the look of this!! :D

  14. The lipsticks are what I’m most excited for, as usual.

  15. So colourful! I love it!

    LOL, the model looks so miserable, doesn’t really capture a fun and playful collection!

    • Exactly what I was thinking! I’m surprised others aren’t reacting to the contradiction (not in a good way) between the name/theme of the collection and the zoned out look of the models.

    • Agreed! Unlike the colorful spirit of the collection, the models don’t seem to be having any fun at all…..

    I guess Im the only one who is not dying for this collection.
    Find it a bit uneventful. The only thing I would get, if any, is that blue eye liner. But is not killing me as the Tom Ford, or the Nars ones. Just my opinion.

    • Nope, you’re not the only one. A few of the lipsticks look appealing though not to the point where I’m prepared to inconvenience myself to try to get them (I’m getting fed up with MAC’s LE stuff and the frenzy to try to purchase them). There’s nothing here exciting enough for me to go out of my way to purchase…

  18. I think this is a fun collection overall I just wish the yellow lippies were better quality!

    • I don’t think MAC realizes how many people would buy and wear Amplified colors that aren’t red or pink. Other brands have out all these blues, purples, golds, silvers and even more non-typical colors that do really well. MAC seems to be stuck in making average colors. I think a more pigmented yellow would’ve been awesome.

  19. I love how the pigments are primary colours :-) really matches the sort of ‘schoolyard’ vibe! I’ll be interested to see how the yellows turn out!

  20. I love that they are releasing Amplified colors, but they made them all pink/red type tones. I would love for MAC to step outside the box and do more Amplified purples, or if they are going to do a gold, make it vibrant. So many other brands are doing unique shades now and MAC seems to be staying rather traditional. I still love most of the lippes here, but will probably only get 2 or 3. I saw MAC workers wearing the blue pigment as lipstick. Why doesn’t MAC release a blue lipstick and see how it does? I’m happy about this collection, yet still frustrated. Oh MAC.

    A lot of this goes right to my wishlist! Yellow lipstick, maybe not so wearable, but I like it. So much fun, I hope they swatch OK, and I’m looking forward to their grading here.

    Did they change the release date? It’s April 10th 11:00A.M and I have stalked the website all morning, still no Playland collection.

  23. Violet

    Is happy-go-lucky a dupe for mac show orchid?

  24. I’m totally in love with Toying Around!

  25. Avril Floreal

    MAC has released two other lipstick colors for this collection Tickle me and enjoy it all. You should have pictures of it as well.

    • Hi Avril,

      Not where you’re seeing this, but I don’t have any information on these, and I don’t see them available on MAC’s website.

      • Avril Floreal

        I was in our MAC store and I saw this two lovely colors when they release Playland colection so when I got home I asked through the live chat at MAC website if its really from Playland collection and they confirmed it is and it’s Asia exclusive release only.
