MAC Playing Koi is a moderately warm-toned, very light pink with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Playing Koi Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had a stronger white base that came through and made it look almost chalky to my eye, which may make it harder to wear for some complexions. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and just creamy enough to glide across the lips without dragging but was still a bit firmer than the average MAC lipstick. It had nearly opaque coverage that went on more evenly than anticipated, though there was a touch of color that gathered in my lip lines. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.
