Mac Quite Cute Overview and Tutorial with Swatches

I was not super excited about the Mac Quite Cute Collection which released last Thursday, April 7th. However, I did manage to find a few items to add to my growing collection of makeup. I started with the star of the entire collection Mac's Candy Yum Yum, a matte bright cool pink lipstick. At first I was not extremely crazy about the lipstick, but once I put a clear gloss over it, my mind quickly changed. I didn't think the lipstick was that special until I arrived back at my apartment and realized I had nothing quite like Mac's Candy Yum Yum! I have swatches below to show you just how unique it is! I also decided to pick up Mac's Giggly Mineralize Blush which is surprisingly pretty on my cheeks despite it's cool undertones. My last and final purchase from the Quite Cute Collection was Mac's Bodly Bare lip liner, which reminds me a lot of Half Red lip liner yet for all nude lipsticks! (How exciting since I love Mac Half Red Lip Liner and I call it "Universal Lip Liner"). Below are comparisons of Mac's Giggle Mineralize Blush with a few of my other cool tone blushes. Be sure to check out the video for a tutorial on the look as well as my thoughts on the entire Quite Cute collection. Enjoy!
