MAC Quite Cute Lippies
I think that of the pastel shades included in the Quite Cute collection, it was the lippies that concerned me the most. Who would want to walk around with purple or minty green lips? Honestly? Not me. It turns out the colors are more flattering than I first thought.
Although they looked very different from each other in the tube, it was quite hard to tell these two apart once swatched or applied. As usual, non-sticky, great shine and lasted about 2 hours without food or drink.
Bubble Tea: Creamy pale nude
Fashion Fanatic: Creamy pale pink
Girl ♥ Boy: Bright light blue pink
I ♥ U: Creamy mid-tone purple
While they appear to be fairly intense in this swatch, I actually went over each swipe 2-3 x to ensure that you could see the color. They were both more translucent, which would be more flattering. I think in real life you wouldn't wear each of these on their own, rather they would be layered under a gloss to add depth.
Playing Koi: Creamy white peach pink (satin)
Quite Cute: Creamy bright whitened lavender (cremesheen)
Saint Germain: Clean pastel pink (amplified)
Candy Yum-Yum: Matte neon pink (matte)
Play Time: Creamy intense violet (cremesheen)
