  1. sh

    the lip liners are permanent!! :) yay

  2. Caryn

    Candy Yum-Yum lipstick and Sakura Mineralized Blush sounds heavenly to me :) Can’t wait!

  3. 53

    They could have come up with a better name….. just my opinion. If it leans towards japanese cute stuff, perhaps they could name it the KAWAII collection .. which means cute in japanese. or have all in ribbons and stuff.. and name it Just A Girl collection.

    • Thaedra

      Actually, I wanted to just say to the person who said they could have come up with a better name. I love the name. Quite Cute makes sense. This collection is Quite Cute. Sometimes I wonder about people and their judgments.

  4. Katt

    How stinkin’ cute is that blush?! Must have!

  5. Mia

    can’t wait till april!!! good thing i passed on wonderwoman… i can buy more from this collection! im aiming for the eyeshadow quads and nail laquers!

  6. Codiee

    I’m definitely going to try to get all the lip products and an eyeshadow quad! HATE penultimate liner!
    I already have Saint Germain,so my wallet is definitely happy over that (hehe)! 😛 MAC seems to finally be stepping up their game! I was getting bored, but now I’ve broke out of my dark winter shell and am ready for neon colors to embrace my face! All this collection needs to make it even more amazing is to have cute packaging! <3

  7. Thaedra

    This sounds like my collection. I LOVE pastels for the Spring!!! I really don’t need anything more but I am planning on buying all the lipsticks, the three blushes (Miss Behave sounds unique & amazing), the nail lacquers & maybe one plushgloss.
    Any idea when we will see the promotional photos?

  8. Bailey

    Yay! i’m so excited for this. It sounds so, well, cute! !And it comes out on my birthday!

  9. Becca

    You know something’s wrong when you don’t want to get an eyeshadow quad regardless of the colours just because they are frosts and lusters.

  10. Becca

    Wow, the plushglasses, blushes and nail laquers are calling out to me :)

  11. maggie

    this all sounds cute,but i wish they would have changed the packaging. the black really takes away from the “cute”

  12. Mindy

    I have seen the blushes & they are adorable!!! I will be getting all three. I have seen the yum yum candy lipstick on Kelly Osbourne and love it! It’s a bright pink. Like a fushia shade. I want all the lipsticks as well. Can’t wait to see more photos & swatches of this collection. I am on a no-buy until April since I want this whole collection.

  13. Mina

    seems more for Caucasians…disappointed

    • Mindy

      Mina, what a racist statement!! I’m not even white & I take offense to that. How dare you?! First off, in reality, this collection suits just about every ethnicity. Second off, the fact that you would blantantly make a statement like this on a public forum shows how ignorant you are. MAC cosmetics as well as the majority of cosmetics are made for every type of person out there. Maybe some colors aren’t suited for someone, but that isn’t for you to make such a harsh statement for.

      • Melissa

        I agree with Mina She was right most of these colors are WA-Y too pale for deep complexions. And thats not true certain mac collections are geared more toward lighter skin. What self respecting black woman would walk around with pastel pink lips? Pinks just dont suit women of our complexion

  14. Becca

    OK, so so far I want all the plushglasses, all the blushes, maybe a nail lacquer and maybe playing koi or candy yum-yum lipstick. Oh boy…

  15. i work at a cco and we got in all 3 of those lip liners about a week ago.

  16. Kim-Mary

    Mindy, I was just coming on to reply to Mina’s statement as well. I really hate ignorant people. Why would you say this is mainly for white people Mina? I don’t see anything that proves that. I think you need to check yourself before you reck yourself girlfriend. Cause you ain’t wanted on this board now.

    • Melissa

      How is she ignorant? she’s simply stating that these colors would only look good on light complexions and she is RIGHT! If your pas NW 47 these pastels will turn ashy on darker skins like ours. Whats the problem? I think you guys are the ignorant ones.

  17. Korryn

    Thanks to for the photos of the Quite Cute blushes. I’m in love with these!!!! I plan on buying all three. Can’t wait for swatches and pictures of the lipsticks.

  18. MissChels

    So excited! I thought I could make it to the Surf Baby Collection without spending too much but this is going to ruin everything lol

  19. Camille

    i want playing kol, fashion fanatic, bubble tea, and naked lip liner
    hahahha thats a lot.. and i usually hate mac collections

  20. emily

    found some pics :)

    the blush look cheap and nasty eww… quad is nice though!!

  21. Emilie

    I want LE packaging!It would be the ULTIMATE purse cuteness!

  22. Leslie-Marie

    I actually already have the Plushglasses in Girl <3's Boy and Fashion Frenzy. The first is more blue pink like the description, it's super pretty…and Fashion Frenzy is more peachy than pink I'd say. Can't mention how I got them, but they aren't samples/displays, they're fresh off the line (giggles)! I can't wait to see the Mineralize Blushes, I'm getting all three!

  23. Thaedra

    I found a photo of the collection. I’m wondering how some people are managing to get these items so early? Maybe a family member works for MAC? Any how the picture is quite distant but you can get the overview vibe of the stuff. Looks fantastic! I need to see better photos & swatches though. Enjoy!

  24. OMG i need some of this collection!! Can’t wait to se the pic & swatches too..<3

  25. aksaiyo

    I’m getting Bubble Tea, just because I’m from Taiwan, where bubble tea is invented! xD

  26. Nunuiviet

    Oh my god I want it all!, I want to see all the colours , pics and swatches! Can’t wait any longer, soooooooo excited !

  27. daisy

    want to see the pics!

  28. Domenica

    I saw swatches of the blushes & lipsticks. Everything looks amazing. What a terrific collection this will be. I have a feeling it’s going to sell out fast ladies. The only downer was the swatch for the Quite Cute lipstick. It’s appears very light, which is fine for Spring/Summer, but I had hoped it would be just a tad more lavenderish. I’m still buying three of them. 😀

  29. Jessica

    Really nice, can’t wait for your swatches Christine

  30. wonderingaboutquitecute

    this collection seems greatt!! i love all the pastels like purples pinks and blues theyseem fun to start experimenting with
    i cant wait for pictures

  31. Ooooooh I cant wait to see what those look like 😀

  32. Mertle

    WOW!!! This collection looks soooo cute! I’m saving up for this one:)))

  33. Jodie


    Promo images! I am in awe!

  34. Mmmm, Ice Cream Cake! This collection sounds delicious. I’ll be saving up for this collection :)

  35. Jodie

    I am super excited about this collection. Definitely one I plan on buying everything from. When will we see some photos of the items & swatches?

  36. I am still super excited for this collection. Ever since I first heard about I have been collecting every single piece of information and photos on my blog for reference.

    I can’t stop looking at the photos! So Cute!
    Can’t wait for Christine to do a review and complete swatch list.<3

  37. joy

    when are the swatches coming out christine?!

  38. Judy

    I can’t wait for this collection!!! As of now, my must buy list includes:

    Playing Koi Creamy white peach pink (Satin) (Limited Edition)
    Candy Yum-Yum Neon pink (Matte) (Limited Edition)
    Quite Cute Bright white lavender (Cremesheen) (Limited Edition)
    Play Time Intense violet (Cremesheen) (Limited Edition)

    Sakura Lavender with pearly deep magenta heart (Frost) (Limited Edition)
    Miss Behave Light beige with pearly mint green heart (Frost) (Limited Edition)

    and the Cutie Eyeshadow Quad.


  39. Nunuiviet

    Now that we have the pics can’t wait to seeeee the swatches!!!

  40. WTH!!! Cute yet is Black Packaging!! they should of of least made it Colorful package! Very UPSET!

    • Judy

      You know. I am one that usually could care less about the packaging of cosmetics. I prefer the quality be up-to-par. For this collection, however, I do agree. It would have been awesome to have some kind of cute, colorful packaging for this collection. I’m still buying the entire collection. Packaging or not makes really no big difference to me.

  41. Kris

    Super cute colors, but disappointed in the packaging. I expected super cute, girly, cupcakey fun packaging, but instead just the regular black.

  42. Brooke

    Ooooh so pretty just like the name says. Can’t wait for swatches. I know I will buy everything from this collection no matter what especially those adorrable blushes and the two purple lipsticks. Yay for purple!

  43. Gaby

    Omg!!! Want it all!! Can’t wait!!

  44. Norlite

    They really should have put this in pink and white or lilac and white packaging imo.

  45. VJNS

    Pretty collection but they all seem so dupable. I really like it & probably only get the lip pencils. Other than that, I’ll save my pennies thank you very much.

  46. Joyce

    Ooh, the nail varnishes are lovely

  47. Oh, boy. That promo photo at the top of the post with the model looking like a candy floss Raggedy Ann… It’s pretty grim. I’m not much of a pastel fan and I am not understanding the Sakura and Misbehave Mineralize Blushes. All in all, I have yellow undertones so I don’t see much of this working for me.

    But I love getting news and photos of launches! Thanks, Christine!

  48. Rebecca

    it looks so cute 😀 totally my limited edition :-) i definitely a lipstick, a blush and a nail laquer 😀

  49. hisa

    The colors are so pretty for this collection, but the packaging doesn’t play off of the “Quite Cute” theme. It could have been more eye catching.

  50. Jocelyn

    I actually like some of this stuff, but no cute packaging ugh. But of course I will wait for Christine’s swatches and photos :)

  51. Hannah

    the miss behave is sooo cute!

  52. Becca

    So if I could buy all I wanted from this collection, I would get:
    Giggly, Sakura, Miss Behave blushes, all of the plushglasses and Playing Koi and Candy Yum-Yum lipstick. But unfortanetly, I will probably only get two plushglasses, a blush and maybe a lipstick. But the blushes are so cute and I have lately gotten extremely obsessed with blushes(I got the Mighty Aphrodite from WW, Ladyblush-can’t believe my MAC still has it- and will be getting both blushes from Jeanius)and I am slowly building my blush collection and when I saw the pictures of these blushes I literally died and then went to Heaven. Not even joking. I swear, those are probably the cutest things ever, and the colours are nice too 😉 Only 1 and a half months to go!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t WAIT for swatches and reviews (hopefully some of the plushglasses will be ugly so I won’t feel bad about not buying all of them!)

  53. Becca

    I came upon a website that said that girl <3 boy plushglass is similiar to NARS Turkish Delight. From the photo here do you guys think so? Here's a swatch:
    do you think that it is even somewhat close to Turkish Delight? Because I want a lot from this collection, and I wouldn't want to waste my money if it's even somewhat close as I already have Turkish Delight…
    Please help!

  54. OMG! I want all of the Mineralize Blush! They are SOOO adorable!

  55. Natalia

    OMG! This one is definitely going to break my wallet. So excited! =)

  56. Brianna

    Hey guys! For those of you interested in a less expensive version of the Quad, check out Revlon’s quad called Lavender Meadow – I have it and think it is a great dupe!!

  57. lina

    hi christine when will you do a swatsh of quite cute collection?

  58. liz

    very excited to see swatches of these products

  59. Does anyone know how someone gets invited to the unveiling party. I’ve been to the “To the beach” collection party. I would love to go to the one for this collection.

  60. Lala

    The promo pic looks like audrey kitching haha

  61. Clara

    showed this collection to my boyfriend, to see if he shared in my excitement (bad move….)

    he took one look at the promo image and said “quite cute? that is…quite scary!” ahahaha my thoughts exactly 😉

  62. melina

    i have the Candy yum yum lipstick (its a great matte fucshia!! full coverege)
    and the quad!! soooo shimmery and great colors!!!!

  63. Kim-Mary

    Christine, do you think there may be a possibility of this collection coming out online before April 7th? I’ll be away and am so worried if I don’t get to order it before that date, then I won’t get anything. I have a feeeling this is going to be the collection that gets sold out within an hour or two from the time it’s available online and in stores.

  64. Brooke

    This collection is soooooo pretty & cute!!! I am buying it all. I also heard that we will be having new collections coming out in May besides surf baby. There is on called Fashion Flower & the other is Flighty I believe. Christine, any information on these upcoming collections?

    • Nunuiviet

      I don’t understand about the announcements of collections launching but the jeanius collection which is due in march has already been released here in Thailand whereas for wonder woman which is for February just arrives in stores yesterday. I live in Thailand.

  65. Krista

    This collection just might make me vomit…I will be staying the hell away from the store while this is out.

    • Brooke

      Wow. Krista. What an immature, rude & ignorant comment to make on this messageboard. If you don’t like this colleciton, that is fine. Then why are you on here & making such a nasty post? Either you are very immature or your one of the trolls lurking & just trying to ruffle feathers. Either way. The majority of us love this collection & can’t wait for it to come out. Stay away from posting such nasty posts if you don’t like a collection. All you had to say (the mature thing) would have been, not my type of collection & I won’t be spending my money on it.

  66. Emily

    Christine, how is it that ppls Are saying they have items from this collection already?!?!?! I have never read that before….. Any comments would be appreciated…

  67. Sydney

    I think I’m in love…

  68. Miranda R

    One look at the pic and my wallet died a bit inside. After this collecton my wallet will be quite a bit lighter.

  69. Melina

    Can’t wait to see swatches!!!

  70. Angeles

    I can’t wait!! This collection is soooooo cute I want it all!!! Too bad the packaging does not match the cuteness of the product. Still I will be getting almost everything in this collection.

  71. Lilinah

    Kewl! (yeah, outdated, but cute :) This is the first collection in a while that i’ve wanted at least one from every category! (last was feline) I’m into all the violet/lavender stuff (lipstick, blush). Can’t wait to see the swatches! I just wish MAC would make a lavender/violet lip pencil…

  72. Hadassah

    Even though I would have loved a pretty design for this collection it’s really the quality of the product. This is one of the most fascinating & beautiful collections I’ve seem from MAC or any other company for a long time. Can’t wait to buy the quads, two of the blushes (maybe three not sure on the finances), playing koi, candy yum yum, quite cute, st. germain and playtime lipsticks. Glad I hate glosses & nail polish otherwise I’d be in dept.

  73. Glenda

    OMG! This collection will break my wallet. I love it all!

  74. Lily

    I am in love~

  75. v

    cant wait for the pics

  76. mia

    AD-OR-RI-BLE!!!!! Love It!!!

  77. Dawn

    I think all I’m interested in here is the quad and the darkest two lipsticks. Even then, I’ll need to see swatches before I decide. For youngsters, having the word “Cute” in the collection title might well encourage them to buy regardless, but as you get older “cute” doesn’t seem relevant to makeup.

    • Dawn

      As regards the promo pic, I don’t find that cute at all – I find it disturbing, and my immediate thought is that she looks ‘vacant’

  78. Carla

    I really wish they had a close up of the models face so we could see her better.

  79. Silvia

    I love this collection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I want everything!!! Poor pocket!

  80. This is the perfect collection for me!!!!!!!

  81. Becca

    I love how all of the colours are like interconnected within the different items!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  82. Lauren

    Giggly is definitely on my list!

  83. cmferrets

    this is the cutest collection. i want it all. reminds me of the sugarsweet collection 2 years ago by mac

  84. jennina

    I visited MAC store today and they already have had samples of everything, except the nail polishes. So they let me have a glimpse. This collection is CUTE! I am gonna be broke!

    I swatched all lipsticks except Saint Germain. PLAYING KOI is so lovely and very pigmented. Must have.

    I recommended to buy all lipsticks as they are extremely cute and will sell out soon. I already reserved mine with the BA.

    I am not a lipglass fan. though they are super cute and very pastle, i’ll pass.

  85. Vvn

    Playing Koi and Quite Cute lipsticks sound nice! Everything else sounds too pale or frosty for my liking, Thanks for the prelim info 😀

  86. Sydney

    This is, in my opinion, going to be the best MAC collection — ever!!

  87. Katie Tanner

    I think I am getting giggly and bubble tea!

  88. sarah

    cant wait to see swatches

  89. i fancy the playing koi lipstick and the blusher with the green heart, i wonder what it will look like on the skin though.

  90. Becca

    apparently Bubble Tea and Fashion Fanatic plushglasses are completely clear, so maybe I’ll be saving some money :)

  91. mandy

    Even though it’s a month early, would I be able to preorder from my local store right now?

  92. Liliana Perales

    This looks like a great collection. My birthday falls on April 9. And it brings me so much joy that the collection will come out on April 7. I’am going to get my birthday present. Yes!!!

  93. Farah

    Does anyone know when the surf baby collection is coming out and if there is any pictures out there already?

  94. Nottsnat

    When are you getting this collection to swatch Christine ? I always trust your swatches they help me decide what goes on my buy list.

  95. Shabooty

    Looking forward to this I love the colors :)

  96. KSlone

    I’m getting a cavity these colors are so sweet! Love them!!

  97. Sexy Sadie

    I am actually curious about the Candy Yum-Yum Neon pink Matte finish (Limited Edition)lipstick.
