MAC Quite Cute: Lip Pencils

MAC Quite Cute Lip Pencils ($13.00 for 0.05 oz.) include three permanent shades from the upcoming collection, which launches in-stores on April 7th. All three shades are actually repromotes from Too Fabulous. The shades are: Boldly Bare (dirty red brown), In Synch (bright yellow pink), and Naked (light neutral).

  • Boldly Bare is a red-based, dirty brown.
  • In Synch is a peached-pink in a way. It’s not quite your typical pink–it’s definitely yellow-based. This would work really well with some more coral-pink lipsticks or glosses.
  • Naked is a light, peach-based beige. I didn’t realize that this was a repromote at the time of swatching, so I did not pull out Naked (which apparently I already own). You can see photos/swatches here.

They’re comfortable enough to be worn alone or as actual lip liner, depending on your needs. With their matte finishes, these hold onto lips well and last six to eight hours. All three shades were nicely pigmented and applied smoothly without skipping.

They work! They do what they're supposed to do, and they don't dry out lips.

    I read over in Specktraland that these liners are going to be perm! :)

  4. BMO

    These liners are NOT limited edition.

    • I’m going by the press release which I received this morning – unless I get confirmation from MAC otherwise, I have to go with the information I do have.

  5. Ahh… In Synch looks gorgeous. It may just be light enough for me.

  6. Adrienne

    Wow you sure were busy today! Thanks! I have my eye on these pencils and the baby blue nail polish. Do u plan on purchasing the polishes?

  7. Mariella

    I love the look of Boldly Bare!

  8. Josiane

    Boldly Bare remind me of YSL rouge volupte lucious pink!

  9. I’ve been noticing you saying you’ll “buy” things these past updates. What happened with Mac giving them to you to review? :-( That sucks.

    • I buy about 90% of MAC products featured on the blog. I believe in 2010, MAC samples accounted for 4-5 collections, but I bought the rest – obviously give or take, I don’t keep track specifically. Big collections like Wonder Woman, Venomous Villains, etc. are usually sent but the majority of the others I have purchased. With the exception of the few collections sent last year, I’ve been buying full MAC collections since Dame Edna in 2008. I literally think the amount of collections I didn’t have to buy is under 10. The ones I can remember for sure were Alice + Olivia, Venomous Villains, Give Me Liberty of London, and Wonder Woman.

  10. These WERE limited, but they will be permanent from the release of Quite Cute on!

  11. Hannah

    Do you think In Synch would look good underneath MAC Strange Potion lipglass?

  12. Denise

    Hi, Christine — thanks for the swatches and reviews! Oh, and according to the MAC Update I went to, the pencils will stay in the line after the release of Quite Cute. :)

  13. Andrea

    Christine, the In Synch I bought last year is a lot more pink than that one, do you think they’ve changed it?

  14. Susana

  16. Gabriella Manuli

    They’re going to be permanent?!! I nearly fell out of my chair while I was reading this, so excited!

    I tried on the In Sync today at the MAC Pro store and found that it was very hard to blend. Anyone else have this problem? Or did I just get one that had been dipped in alcohol one too many times?
