Here's a haul from the MAC Quite Cute collection last week.
At first I thought I would LOVE this collection, but when I saw it in person it wasn't what I thought it will be. Yeah, this collection has a pastel theme to it, the names are cute and the shades are absolutely gorgeous, but the quality and pigmentation is...how do I say this in a good way? uh...cheap and disappointing a little bit.
Last Thursday(April 7) I rushed to my nearest MAC counter and my mind was already set that I will be spending around $100-$120. Initially, I bought six products from this collection(2 plushglasses, 2 lipsticks, and 2 mineralized blush), but when I swatched the mineralized blush and tried it on, it was chalky and really powdery. So I got to do what I got to do..RETURN! So, I'm here, left with four products and spent less than a bill.
> Playing Koi- creamy white peach with a hint of pink(Satin)
- Love the color, but not really a fan of the look on my lips. Very drying and you can really see the flaws on your lips. I still need to learn how to wear this without looking like I never applied lipbalm on my lips.
> Candy Yum-Yum- Bright neon pink(Matte)
- This is my favorite of the bunch, doesn't look matte though and it is creamier than Playing Koi. When will I be able to wear this? I don't know, but I will eventually. :D
Plushglass: If you are not familiar with MAC's Plushglass, then I will explain it to you. They are marketed to give you plump lips. I don't think it works though :|
> Girl loves- Creamy pink with blue undertones
> Love you- Creamy lilac
* I really have nothing to say about these plushglasses, but they are sheer and I really like them (I like the tingle okay?).

* In conclusion, I have something to say to MAC:
PLEASE step up your game and don't release a new collection twice or thrice a month. Release a collection maybe once a month with good quality products, no more chalky/powdery blushes and uber sheer eyeshadows .
Thoughts?What did you get from this collection?
