I love this color by Mac. Its so hard to find. If you can grab it on Ebay and not pay a fortune for it (under $50) grab it, you won't be disappointed. I think this looks great on every skin tone, best if you have a slight tan but I'm pale now and I love the color so I can image how much more I'd love if I had some sun.

Three or four layers of Playing Koi over a good lipbalm and a glossy overcoat look great over my medium-pink toned NC 25 lips but it's more effort than I care to expend for nude toned lips. Also I try to stay away from the MAC lustre formula since it tends to make my lips peel. I would purchase this color in another formulation however.

Love this color! It's super hot and looks great matte (as is) or with gloss over. It's especially awesome with black eyeliner/smokey eye look.

It's a unique color and certainly not for everyone, but if you have all the standard colors and are looking for something a little wild and different, go for it!

I LOVE this lipstick, and am SO glad I bought a back up tube when they were available. I absolutely hate the MAC hype with its silly little limited ediciton collections every other week (it seems!), but this shade...on me, is an apricot/nude/peachy tone, and its perfection...it can blend very well worn over others shades also, especially Please Me and Snob, to warm them up while giving nice …Read more

I absolutely LOVE the color of Playing Koi. As a fair skinned brunette with green eyes I have horrible problems finding a nude lipstick that is not too beige. This lipstick has just the right amount of peach and pink mixed in to give me that nude lip without making it look like I used concealer on my lips. I have very dry lips year round so using a gloss or balm under/over is mandatory for me …Read more

I really love the colour of this lipstick. It is a cool nudey pale pink. I haven't found another pastel pink quite this colour, however, as a lot of reviews have been saying the texture is drying and chalky. I have to prep my lips with lip balm or apply it after. When I wear this lipstick I don't apply it as I would others, I just dab it across my lips and I love how it looks. As much …Read more

I absolutely love the colour of this lipstick, it is really flattering on me and really nice for something different. The texture of this on the other hand is absolutely terrible, it is so powdery in texture and doesn't provide even cover. You can't get the full effect of the colour because of the way it sits on the lip. My lips are not dry at all and the lipstick still will not spread …Read more

I was searching for this lipstick for months and months because my counter was sold out of it only two days after the collection's launch. I finally found it from someone on livejournal and bought it, was so excited to get it and was even more excited when I got it. And then the minute I put it on my lips, it washed me out so bad. The color is gorgeous in the tube, but on my highly pigmented …Read more

I love this shade of nude peach. Although It looks better with gloss on top.

it's a nude lipstick color is more peachy color then beige .It looks very nice in tube even at skin but if you have pigmented lips you won't get that nice color and if you have very light skin then it'll washout so i recommend hug me instead.
