Last week the latest MAC color collection to be released was the QUITE CUTE collection. Before it was even available Quite Cute was already being compared to the MAC SugarSweet collection that debuted sometime in March 2009. That collection offered an amazing range of pastels and the Quite Cute collection is no different. What, with Spring here and Easter is only a few weeks away it seems somewhat fitting that a color collection like this would make it's debut.

Be sure to read my final thoughts on this collection along with my haul pics at the end of this post

Here are the details for the MAC QUITE CUTE COLLECTION

“CUTE!” The most fanciful, fun and flattering compliment and young, modern trendsetter could ever want! Our version is the girliest kind of international glam possible, a style ride that combines postage-stamp-sized puppies with pixie swizzle-stick fashion and butterfly kisses for cute boys and even cuter shoes! Cupcake icing colors, vintage romance, an ATM card with Hello Kitty on it – and a way of life that says “yes!” to everything adorable! Come on, get happy, with the multi-culti cutie, from Tokyo to Toronto to Paris with love! Pastel shades for Eye Quads, Lipstick, Plushglass, and Nail Lacquer…And due to popular demand, we’re completely cute-ifying three favourite Lip Pencil shades from last season that will join the fun and frolic.

Final thoughts..

Eyeshadow Quad:
I really liked this collection but I didn't love it. The eyeshadow quad seemed like so many other purple quads that MAC has released in the past that I felt safe in skipping it. What I mean by safe is that if I saw other Beauty addicts creating looks using this quad I am confident that I could easily find a dupe if I wanted to recreate the same look.    

Most of the lipsticks seemed to be a little on the sheer side and didn't really appeal to me. The only one that really grabbed my attention was Candy Yum Yum but I couldn't really see myself wearing that bright of a lipstick everyday. Also, I am not much for wearing lipstick and in the past, most if not all lipsticks have a tendency to dry out my lips so once again I knew I could easily skip these.

I own a total of one MAC Plushglass and have vowed never to waste my money on this product again. I hate the taste of MAC plushglass and the things that this little tube of gloss does to my lips ain't pretty either. Enough said.

Nail Lacquer:
Again, another item that I can pass on. There are so many cheaper alternatives out there and I know that I can very easily find dupes for any of these polishes.

Mineralize blushes:
This was by far, my favorite part of the collection. I love the design of the little hearts in the middle and I am a sucker for pinks and purples. So as for buying these, it was a no-brainer! I bought both the Sakura and Giggly blushes and I am loving them!

Here are some pics of the blushes:
