M.A.C. Amplified Creme Lipstick RED BALLOON : Review/FOTD

Posted on Jul 9 2014 - 1:00pm by agnibanya

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick RED BALLOON (Rs 1190/ 3 g), Limited Edition and released as a part of the Toyland Collection.
Red Balloon comes in a standard MAC Black Bullet packaging despite being a part of a Limited edition because of which I think these are priced just like other regular MAC Lipsticks. It is strong and feels quite sturdy. The lipstick has the signature vanilla scent , typical of all MAC Lipsticks. I like!!
Red Balloon is described as a hot fuchsia by MAC , however in my opinion I think it lacks the purple undertones and I would love to call it a hot Pink with a lot of underlying red (more prominent in a hand swatch in natural light). It is a vivid and bright shade, packed with a lot of punch and I can see a lot of bright lipstick lovers totally diggin’ it up for this one color.
Red Balloon has the Amplified Finish and provides rich, intense color coverage with a soft creamy luminous finish in just a swipe. The lipstick glides on beautifully on the lips and coats them with an even layer of color without any tug or pull. Despite being a creamy lipstick, I have not experienced any feathering or bleeding whatsoever. 
It stayed on for more than 5 hours and leaves a light reddish-pink stain behind. It also transfers mildly.
Overall, I am totally loving this lipstick nowadays, first because of the shade which despite being bright is very wearable and secondly, for the amazing texture and pigmentation. The collection launched about three weeks earlier here in India, so in case you’re lucky you just might be able to grab a piece for yourself !

Totally recommended!!

    Its a great lipstick Nidsy..I was surprised that I liked it so much because it didn't quite seem interesting in the tube…That color on my lids is MAC's pigment in Pink Bronze..you must try it someday..It looks far more appealing and attractive and METALLIC in person..Love it!!
