MAC Quite Cute Collection Review + Swatches! :D

I had the privilege of previewing the Quite Cute collection, so here's some swatches for everyone! :D

This Harajuku inspired collection is just, well, quite cute! Pink, lavander and mint green are the main colors of this collection - who would know that greens and pinks go so well together! Girls who love their pastels will love this collection! :D

Ok lets go straight to the swatches! :D

Cute Eye Quad (US$36 / RM140):

All 4 colors in this quad swatches beautifully, but Moshi! Moshi! is a little on the powdery side. Pigmentation wise they could be better, but i guess these colours are meant to be soft and subtle :)

Moshi! Moshi! (Frost) - Pale white green gold
Goody Goody Gum Drop (Satin) - Light white pink
Boycrazy (Lustre) - Pale lavender with silver pearl pigments
Azuki Bean (Frost) - Mid-tone violet

Lipsticks (US$14.50 / RM65):

The lipsticks in this collection are quite pigmented surprisingly! I'm totally in love with Playing Koi, but we girls in Penang won't be getting this color *curses under breath*

Quite Cute (Cremesheen) - Bright white lavender
Playing Koi (Satin) - Creamy white peach pink.
Saint Germain (Amplified) - Pastel pink. This is permanent.
Play Time (Cremesheen) - Intense violet
Candy Yum-Yum (Matte) - Neon pink

Plushglasses (US$18.50 / RM65):

Ahhh, MAC finallllly releases a collection featuring the Plushglasses (the last i think was Naughty Nauticals wayyyy back in 2008!)! I personally like these because they make my lips look fuller somehow. I didn't get the tingly feeling some girls get from these glosses though!

The ones in this collection are kinda sheer, and methinks that they won't really show up on pigmented lips! :(

I ♥ U - Creamy mid-tone purple
Girl ♥ Boy - Bright light blue pink
Bubble Tea - Creamy pale nude
Fashion Fanatic - Creamy pale pink

Lip Pencils (US$13 / RM55):

These lip liners are repromotes from last year's Too Fab collection. If you love lipsticks you MUST get Naked - its just like lip concealer in a stick!! Too pretty!! <3

Naked - Light neutral
In Synch - Bright yellow pink
Boldly Bare - Mid-tone red brown

Nail Lacquers (US$14 / RM42):

These colors are SO CUTE!!! :D All 3 polishes go on streaky, so you'll need at least two coats for a nice opaque finish.

Mischievous - Creamy pale blue mint
Little Girl Type - Creamy pale lavender
Ice Cream Cake - Creamy blue pink

Mineralize Blushes (US$23 / RM100):

The Blushes were swatched in this order: left - large surface area, middle - heart, right - both colors swirled together.

With a cute heart in the middle, this blush is set to capture hearts! Hehehe!! :D However, the colors are just alright IMHO - boring and not universally flattering. Take Miss Behave for example - though the beige color is pretty, but when mixed with the mint this ghastly white shimmery color thats just not flattering! :(

Sakura - Lavender with pearly deep magenta heart
Giggly - Light pink with pearly plum heart
Miss Behave - Light beige with pearly mint green heart

Thats all for now! Didcha see anything you like from this collection? Or are you skipping it altogether? Spill! :D

  5. Carol: oohhh! I can't wear pastels... they make my look swollen!! >.< But yeah, gotta admit that the colors are so pretty though! :D

    I'm probably just getting one blush too for collection's sake :)
