MAC Quite Cute Collection Review + Swatches

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lipsticks in the Quite Cute Collection! MAC hasn't been very exciting in a while but this collection really tickled my fancy. It is better than Sugarsweet for me. I love how the colors are very cool toned, girly and springy. I have been waiting for colors like Quite Cute and Playtime lipsticks. Quite cute is very fun and Playtime is a very pretty purple with lavender which really refreshes your face. Candy Yum-Yum is a very neon bright barbie pink! It's awesome and stays on for a long time too. It's matte and I prefer to put a lipgloss on top for the glossy effect. I wore it with Almondine gloss to the club and the stain is still on my lips the next morning. Playing Koi is a great nude and I also love it with a gloss. I think of swimming fish everytime I pull it out 'cause of the name obviously.

I am very pale cool toned skin for reference.
I don't find Playtime to be very sheer, you can wear it more subtly or easily layer it to look how it does in the tube. Candy Yum-Yum looks more bright on my lips than it does on my arm swatch.
