MAC Quite Cute Collection: Candy Yum-Yum lipstick


MAC Quite Cute Collection for Spring 2011 was released in stores/counters today. I was originally really excited about this collection but once swatches started showing up online I became disappointed. The blushes with the heart in the center are gorgeous in the pan but they're very sheer(Giggly blush being the most pigmented out of the three). The nail polishes are gorgeous but I am not crazy enough to spend $14 for a bottle of nail polish.  I have came to the conclusion that this collection is more like "eye-candy" and  not necessarily good enough to splurge.

The only product I completely fell in love with is Candy Yum-Yum lipstick which is a bright and beautiful matte neon pink shade. I hear that it's selling out fast so I recommend you buy it now before it's gone. *sad face*

  2. Candy Yum-Yum looks gorgeous on you. xx I'm thinking of getting the lipstick in Playtime and a lip liner. I truly wanted the heart blushes, but as you said they are too sheer. :(

  10. I bought yesterday (it was sold out in almost all Parisian Mac shop). It's one of my HG (because I've got chanel hydrabase Precious and an old very old guerlain rouge sublime n#123 Rouge sublime, and of course YSL Rouge pur n#19 Fuschia). It's a beautiful color for spring and summer and maybe more, I think. Now I am wondering whether or not I'll buy play time. Why not
