MAC Quite Cute Collection - Lipsticks w/ Swatches

Quite Cute Lipstick:  Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.  $14.50 ea.
 The Quite Cute collection includes four limited edition lipsticks, Candy Yum-Yum, Playing Koi, Play Time, and Quite Cute.  It also includes Saint Germain which is a repromote.


Candy Yum-Yum:  Matte neon pink.
Playing Koi:  Creamy white peach pink.
Play Time: Creamy intense violet.
Quite Cute:  Creamy bright whitened lavender.
I absolutely love Candy Yum-Yum!  Is it a color I'd wear regularly? No, but I just love the color and how bright it is in general.  It's a highly pigmented matte finish lipstick but not drying at all.  

Playing Koi is a pretty color but it's just not for me.  It's too pale alone and tends to give me a washed out look so I may try to layer a tinted lipgloss to liven it up.  Playing Koi is a satin finish lipstick.

Since Candy Yum-Yum and Playing Koi were pretty opaque, I expected Play Time to be an opaque purple lipstick.  However I was surprised, maybe even pleasantly surprised, to find that Play Time is actually semi-sheer. I find this to be the most wearable lipstick color from this collection.  Play Time is a cremesheen lipstick.


Quite Cute is a pale semi-sheer lavender.  I feel it washes me out a tad, but not nearly as much as Playing Koi.  It is a pretty color alone but I'm very curious of how it would look layered over other more pigmented lipsticks.  I'll have to play around with it some more.  Quite Cute is a cremesheen lipstick.
