MAC Quite Cute Collection


I only picked up 3 things from this collection.. the infamous Candy Yum Yum Lipstick, Play Time Lipstick and In Synch Liner, (which is a repromote and i think it is now permanent along with naked liner and boldly bare liner)


Candy Yum Yum

This lipstick is supposed to be a  neon-like pink. On me its not as neon because i do have dark pigmented lips, but its still a very unique pretty pink.  I do not have a color like this in my lipstick collection.  It's a matte, but i was surprised to see that it applied sort of creamy like a satin lipstick which is nice.


Play Time

Play Time lipstick is a nice cremesheen purple. My camera couldn't really pick up on the pink that it has. Since it is a cremesheen it is a bit on the sheer side, but it is still buildable.  A lot of people compared this to mac's Up the Amp (which i own and love) but it looks nothing alike as my swatches will show.

  1. You may want to check out Nars' Schiap lipstick if you like MAC's Yum Yum. I'm Dominican too (if it matters lol)I wear MAC's NC40.

    Yea people have been saying to try Nars Schiap. but others are saying schiap has more of a blue tone to it while candy yum yum is more true pink.

    Nars just came out with a matte hot pink lipstick called carthage. I'm planning on checking that out and comparing it to candy yum yum for those who missed out :)
