MAC’s Quite Cute Collection: Lipstick Favourites
Posted by Shayna
So I was so excited when I first saw MAC’s Quite Cute collection a few weeks back. The collection is full of pastel pinks and purples, which happen to be my favourite colours! Especially in lipsticks, which caught my eye first.
I went to check out the collection yesterday, the day it came out, and ended up picking up two colours. I got Quite Cute (creamsheen white lavender) and Candy Yum Yum (neon pink). When I first saw Quite Cute online I fell in love. It reminded me so much of Fashion Mews from the MAC Hello Kitty collection, which to this day remains my favourite colour of all time. I however, made the mistake of not picking up a backup so I had to ration out the lipstick. Of course, the stick is beyond unwearable now as there is nothing left in it.
Anyways, I knew I had to pick up Quite Cute (I’m going to wear it for a few days and see if I like it enough to get another one) but I was also thinking of getting Candy Yum Yum (CYY) as well. CYY is so neon pink it hurts. It’s pretty much straight out of the 80’s. This colour is definitely something that you pull out on a Friday night with your hair in a high fashion bun with minimal makeup. It’s super bold. If you want this colour I would recommend going to pick it up like now. I know both Quite Cute and Candy Yum Yum are already sold out on the MAC website, so if you see them at a counter or store and if you want it or thinking about it, I would say buy it. They seem to be going pretty fast.
I just want to note that this collection seems to be more targeted towards lighter skinned individuals, which fortunately for me, I fit the bill. Quite Cute can have that sickly look to it if applied on the wrong individual and Candy Yum Yum, well, I mean it’s definitely not for everyone.
I only got the two lipsticks, but I do want to mention that they are also repromoting Saint Germain in this collection as well. I love Saint Germain, I bought it about half a year ago when I went to the MAC store and tried to find a dupe for Fashion Mews. It’s not the same at all, but it’s just the prettiest pink and it really makes you stand out. It’s bold, but definitely a lot softer compared to Candy Yum Yum.
The other two colours in the collection are Playing Koi, “a creamy white peach pink” (it really reminds me of Myth and I have that colour so that’s why I didn’t pick it up), and Play Time, “a creamy intense violet”. I might pick up Play Time, I’m currently thinking about it.
As for the rest of the collection, the eyeshadow quad is cute, but I might just pick up a couple colours from it and add them to my pro palette. I heard they aren’t that pigmented. The blushes are also nice, they have a cute little heart in them. I don’t need a new blush so I passed on these.
If you want to see the entire collection visit MAC’s website, and if you see something you like in store, I would pick it up right away.
What are your impressions? Anything on your wish list?
UPDATE: I picked up a back-up of Quite Cute last Friday, it was the last one in the store and it was a low traffic counter as well. I also picked up Play Time for my mom as she really liked the colour when she saw it online. It looked good on me but better on my mom, so I got her one. Nice daughter, huh?
