I don’t think so, everything they have with special packaging costs more and I can’t use my pro discount with it. I’m going to buy everything from this collection and save more or less one hundred dollars. I’m more concerned about the make up and not the packaging.

Liz Avatar

I think the packaging should be cute so it would go along with the collection, however mac just released a huge collection with different packaging. I’m waiting for some pastel packaging mac!

ak Avatar

Wow the Cany Yum Yum lipstick on the French blog looks almost do-able, we shall see leter on… but the chick’s brown-bronzey eye on the French blog looks hot, hot, hot!!!

Whoever she is she is working the new hot 70s Studio 54 thing through and through because that’s the way the makeup was back then when you went out at night, and it was hot!

eden Avatar

ooooh im actuly excited for this collection !!! deffinatly getting Quite cute LS and the minralised blush!! thanks so much Christine i cant wait until more info is givin 🙂 <3

natalia Avatar

This collection has my top two favortie MAC products, Mineralize Blush and Plushglass. Pastels on my eyes are a no-no, but on lips and cheeks yes please!

chelsea Avatar

I am really looking forward to seeing more information and pictures of this collection! Sounds like something right up my alley. I am so over dark winter colors and can’t wait to start wearing some light, pastel like colors!

Judy Avatar

Holy mother of MAC!!!! I want it all!!! Sorry my fellow MAC lovers, I’m taking home the following lipsticks (maybe even double the amount cause I am loving the colors–of course I need to see the swatches, but anyway): Playing Koi,Candy Yum-Yum, Quite Cute & Play Time. I may also buy the quads, the new blush & some plushglasses that normally I wouldn’t be interested in. I think I’m having a heart attack now. Thanks MAC!!! ;-D

MatryoshkaDoll Avatar

OMG, this sounds amazing! Playing Koi sounds awesome, I predict that will be a big seller of this collection! This collection definitely speaks to the Japanophile in me!

The only downside is that I’m sorry to see they are bringing plushglasses back. For once I’d like to see a LE collection that does just the standard lipglasses, they haven’t done that for ages.

Musebeliever Avatar

I want this ! I love the concept of the collection ! I must grab a lipstick and an eye palette at least ! >.<
Does someone know when this will be available in France ?

Leticia Avatar

I also look very much forward to seeing pictures of this collection, which sounds like a lot of fun! I definitely want to see how an eyeshadow called “Moshi Moshi” looks like!

Crissy Avatar

Yesss, finally a collection with new, unique colors! This is so my style, can’t wait for more info. And the Japanese inspired names are adorable too!

Carrie Ann Avatar

Oh, no. I’m probably going to want the blush (I’m a sucker for Mineralize Blushes) & one of the Plushglasses. It sounds like the packaging might be really cute, too. I wish MAC would only come out w/ these cute ltd. ed. collections 3 or 4 times a year, so my wallet could have a break. It always feels like you’ll never get the things you want if you don’t snatch them up right away. At least there are a lot of repromotes & permanent products.

ak Avatar

Penultimate is fine, it’s OK and it does show up black on me *shrugs* but if you hate it that much buy the Nars Liner Stylo, because that’s very good and very black.

Rita Avatar

I’m going to skip this for the most part, but I will check out the purple/lavender/violet lippes. Way too cool for me, as well as the Jeanius C.

Natalie Avatar

I’m not too into pastels, but I fell in love with In Synch & Naked liners the first go ’round & have anxiously been awaiting their repromote! I definitely am snapping those up…maybe all in my area! Haha! And a neon pink matte lip?! I have died and gone to cosmetic heaven.

Kim-Mary Avatar

Oh good grief!!!! My wallet!!!!! This sounds right up my alley. Japanese themed collections are always so pretty & interesting. Loving the purple lippies & glosses as well as the quads. Hoping the blush is purpley also or rosey. Doesn’t really matter cause I’m buying the whole darn collection.
For those rolling your eyes. Good. Stay away. This collection is for me & my MAC peeps. More for us. 😉

Morgan Avatar

AW SCHUCKS!!!! I’m going to be buying all them lipsticks. Purple crazed loved over here. Intense Violet? Yes! Hoping it’s more like Go For It and not as dark as Faultlessly was. The Quite Cute one sounds amazing. Maybe like a Lavander Whip mixed with the old 70’s creamy lavanderwhite lipsticks they used to have. Can’t wait for pictures, swatches & your recommendations Christine.

Lorraine Avatar

Can’t wait for this collection! These colors are right up my alley. I love plush glasses and pastel colors. Very clever names also! The lip products and the eyeshadow quad will definitely be added to my wishlist! Maybe the Msf too but I would have to see is first.

Marcela Avatar

screams EASTER PASTELS! puke. and judging by the descriptions of these colors, they’ll only work for cool-toned pale skin. definitely not enough variation, so i’ll be skipping as i’m warm-toned light-medium skin.

Ani_BEE Avatar

I’ve seen product photo’s of the Cutie Eyeshadow Quad, Giggly Mineralize Blush with the small heart and Candy Yum-Yum radioactive pink. O__o

Lots of pink purple and whites. lol
I think the heart embedded Mineralize Blushes will be cute but the shades are off putting on the rest of the product.

ak Avatar

U oh! It sounds like I can only wear the Boldly Bare lip pencil, maybe a couple of the Plushglasses, because I already know I look like Hell in Saint Germain!

Joli Avatar

How many times are they going to repromote the black penultimate? It’s a great product, but they need to expand it into more colors. You’d think a collection like this one would be an ideal time to launch purple, blue, or even brown penultimate shades.

suzy Avatar

I have been debating unsubscribing to Temptalia because I always want something from all the collections and will soon be broke. I will be a poor lady with a whole bunch of makeup. hahahaha. Thank you Christine for all the hard work you do.

Liz Mc Avatar

I don’t really like pastels and I’m too old for cute (even hate the word LOL). So I think I’ll be sitting this one out, and that’s ok.

Trish Avatar

The matte neon-pink lipstick (Candy Yum Yum) and lipliner In Synch are calling me. So excited! No plushglasses for me as they sting and my lips are full anyway.

b dot Avatar

i work for mac and recently went for a training. This is by far one of my most favorite collections that the company has come out with in a very long time. yum yum candy is very similar to nars schiap lipstick which is one of my faves. This collection is truly amazing.

Taylor Avatar

My local Mac SA was talking about this a few days ago! She said that one of the lipsticks is Lavender Whip with a different name. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I am SO psyched about this!

Tania Avatar

I think this collection is making a reference more towards Japanese culture(for example lollita trend, etc). From tiny food erasers, their obsession with chibi(tiny) animals, pastel colored everything!, frilly dresses, and Hello Kitty, Japanese culture has flooded the world with the cuteness factor. Everytime I visit Daiso(a Japanese import store, I call it Japenese Target) I swear 90% of the things are cute and pastel.

But I can see how you could make that connection. Interesting observation. 🙂

Caitlin Avatar

Yeah, I get that there’s a Japanese inflection here– and I’m surprised that the word ‘kawaii’ didn’t make it in there anywhere! Maybe the packaging will make the Japanese influence more obvious. But if you aren’t aware of the phenomena of cuteness/chibi/kawaii/lolita/etc in Japan, the term “multi-culti” and the reference to Tokyo alongside Paris and Toronto probably won’t be very enlightening. (Though the shade names might– IF you then go and google what they signify.)

I think that that “cute boys and cuter shoes” and “ATM card” in particular reference a rather insidious set of stereotypes that are still powerful in America more than they reference Japanese crazes for cuteness…. and that yoking the two sets together isn’t flattering to anybody.

Caitlin Avatar

to clarify: it’s not the theme of the collection I’m against, or anything about the collection itself, but some of the phrasing in the press release/ad copy.

I feel like they could write about a theme of cuteness without making reference to imagery that is used to sustain stereotypes about women.

They could do “cute in general” or “Japanese kawaii cute” without making reference to “cute boys and cuter shoes” or to Hello Kitty ATM cards. There are powerful stereotypes that are used in this culture to be dismissive of women; one of these, for instance, maintains that women spend money irresponsibly on anything that catches their eye. How many jokes have you heard about women as shopaholics, their credit card debt, etc? Trying to sell us makeup by using this kind of imagery– “it’s so cute, you won’t be able to NOT buy it! (just like shoes!)”– doesn’t help prove these stereotypes wrong.

Tania Avatar

When you think about it the concept of “cuteness” is pretty much a purely superficial phenomena and it’s meant to generate an impulsive response. In fact all of those things mentioned in MAC’s description seem to feed into our impulses(for all genders). We are talking about makeup which is generally associated with femininity, so when you combine impulsivity, as derived by cuteness, with femininity it will inevitably incite a negative response when specific images are taken rather than the message in its entirety.
Yes, perhaps this collection may be less about Japanese pop culture than I previously assumed, but I’m still not convinced that those minor references to boys and consumerism should overrule the rest of the playfulness and whimsy that the message conjures.
Of course, the message is subject to personal interpretation.

Eliza Avatar

Christine, is it possible that Quite Cute and Lavender Whip are the same product, but with different names? The description is awfully similar…

Nunuiviet Avatar

Soooooooo excited, love pastel colours, this collection sounds good and there’s a skinfinish wow so excited! Can’t wait to see the pics!!!

Kat Avatar

Christine I’ve been wondering.. how come plushglass is $18.50? considering it has a little less product than a normal $14.50 lipglass and same packaging.. not like a dazzleglass or anything?
As far as the collection goes, it look rather nice for it’s description. Nothing too exiting however, Mac really needs to step it up. I would be more exited if a whole old collection was launched again (Scifi per say) than these new ones coming up “/

Hilary Avatar

I wish that they did limited edition packaging.. I mean it would TOO cute especially for this collection. (Totally appropriate huh?) I would buy near to everything if it had great packaging (LOL) Loving the lip products and the eyeshadow quad. I have always wanted to try a plushglass but was too scared because of the plumping feature.

Samantha Avatar

Don’t be scared to try the plush glasses! They barely even plump; they just give a minty feeling to your lips. They are so smooth and they feel so silky on my lips, not sticky. They are my favorite!

Emily Avatar

I’m watching Fashion Police right now. I went on Twitter to see what lipstick Kelly Osbourne is wearing on this episode. She had already tweeted about it, and it’s Candy Yum-Yum. SO cute!

Nunuiviet Avatar

I saw some pics on a beauty blog and oh my god I want the eye quad, the mineralized skin finish so quite with a heart shape and the colours are so gorgeous, I love pastels colours pink, lavender… I’m definitely gonna buy!!!

Mimi Avatar

I wonder how “Quite Cute” lipstick will compare to “Lavender Whip.” I missed Lavender Whip the first time around and have been on the hunt ever since.

Sophia Avatar

those names are soooo cute!!!
i will boy something just for the name lol, like the ”moshi moshi” quad and the ”playing koi” lipstick, sounds so Japanese, adorable.
I have to see pictures of the mineralaze blushes… they are gonna have a heart in them (so cute)
and there goes my money lol

Anon Avatar

I found a blog that has some sneak peeks of the mineralize blush, eyeshadow quad, and lipsticks. I believe the blush is going to be called ‘Giggly’. It’s in french though.

Elizabeth Avatar

So excited for this collection! I LOVE neutrals and pastels as they work best with my pale skintone & coloring. 🙂

I’m so ready for some bright fun colors, as I’m officially tired of the dark winter colors (but I still love ’em) 🙂

Nunuiviet Avatar

Me too I love everything mineralized blush, skinfinishes, eyeshadow! Soooooooooo excited about this collection wanna see the swatches, lipsticks+ blushes, oh but it’s released in april still 2 months to go!

Lola Avatar

WOWWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW! By far my favorite collection for 2011 so far!!! Glad I am skipping the WW. I may have to skip sheen supreme, jeanius and gaga to save up since I want just about everything in this collection!!!! So far when I tallied the cost of the stuff I want it’s over $200!
I am hoping that Surf Baby won’t have anything I want otherwise I’m doomed.

Annick Chantal L. H. Avatar

Can’t wait to see the pics. Maybe three lipsticks. I want the three lip liners for my collection, two (or three) plushglasses. For the quad, I want to see the pics because pastels…

Lilly Avatar

I haven’t purchased any of the recent MAC collections due to the packaging that I don’t like, espeically the wonder woman one, anyways, this one sounds attractive to me, pastel colors are perfect for spring and I love cute/romantic/girly packaging. I can’t wait for the pictures! After seeing the french blog sb posted here, I already wanted the miniralized blush with heart in it. cute!

Domenica Avatar

Awesome collection!!! I can’t wait to see the photos & swatches. I’m getting all three blushes cause they sound unique & like nothing I’ve ever had before. Lippies, plushglosses, nail polishes and the quads sound amazing. This collection will cost me a fortune, but will be worth it if I can resist buying anything else until the Fall. Yea like that will happen. Damn you MAC!!!!!!! I love to hate you so much!!!!!!!

Billie Avatar

wow i cant wait either i hope the packageing is super cute. Im going to buy all the lipsticks plushes ,1 quad all blushes, n all nail lacquers. omg i wanna c them now!! haha

Milly Avatar

oh my…and there was me thinking I was skipping on all of the MAC spring collections. My poor wallet!
I want all three blushes, the eyeshadow quad and Little Girl Type nail lacquer. “Sakura” and “Miss Behave” sound really interesting…

Laura Avatar

I don’t really like the general vibe of this collection – all cute, girly and twee…it’s just not my thing. However, I’ll try to ignore that and just look at the products themselves. From the descriptions, Candy Yum Yum sounds quite unique (what an awful name though!), and Play Time could be cool too, so I am interested to see those. The mineralize blushes might also be worth a look. I already have In Synch and Naked liners and they’re both great but I don’t use them enough to warrant back-ups.

Overall…not hugely excited for this one.

53 Avatar

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 Avatar

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.

Mia Avatar

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!

Codiee Avatar

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

Thaedra Avatar

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?

Becca Avatar

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.

Mindy Avatar

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.

Mindy Avatar

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 Avatar

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

Kim-Mary Avatar

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 Avatar

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.

Leslie-Marie Avatar

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!

Thaedra Avatar

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!

Domenica Avatar

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. 😀

wonderingaboutquitecute Avatar

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

Tania Avatar

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

Judy Avatar

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.


Judy Avatar

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.

Brooke Avatar

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!

VJNS Avatar

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.

Julia Minamata Avatar

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!

hisa Avatar

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.

Becca Avatar

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!)

Brianna Avatar

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!!

Chyna Avatar

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.

Clara Avatar

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 😉

Kim-Mary Avatar

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.

Brooke Avatar

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 Avatar

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.

Brooke Avatar

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.

Emily Avatar

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…

Angeles Avatar

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.

Lilinah Avatar

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…

Hadassah Avatar

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.

Dawn Avatar

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.

jennina Avatar

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.

Liliana Perales Avatar

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!!!

Nottsnat Avatar

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

Domenica Avatar

OOMG!!! It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for this fab collection to finally come out. Also, any word on any of the upcoming Summer/Fall/Winter collections? Surf Baby? Flower Fashion? Flighty? Anything?! I need information!!!!!!

Madison Avatar

Absolutly adorable!!!!! The products are so amazing there is no need for the special packaging. i love that the glosses are plushglass, excited to have some new colors. who can resist the playful, girliness of this collection?!

laura Avatar

Soooo excited!! I’m super pale with pink undertones so I can totally rock out pastels! VERY happy there’s no fancy packaging! Now I can buy everything and save $$$! 🙂

Mimi Avatar

For anyone who lives in Los Angeles, the MAC Pro store on Robertson is having a HUGE launch party for the Quite Cute collection. It’s Thursday, March 31st at 7pm. Call and have your name put on the list if interested. I’m super excited!!

The collection is up on the uk site!!! Why?!! How come they get to order two weeks earlier than us? I hope MAC USA has it up soon. I want the entire collection.

Hey all! MOst of the products are now up on – you just have to search around for them (lipsticks, plushglasses, nail polishes, and liners). No palette or blushes yet…

OMG I have been checking the mac website since this morning. I thought it would be avail today. I’m pissed that the uk people get to have theirs first when the information says international comes out after the usa. Christine any word up on when this collection will be avail online? I am hoping to buy a few things before it all gets sold out.

I want to love this seeing as how I love anything “cute” but unfortunately I’m not a pastel type of gal. I love the little discription of the collection but I just don’t see anything from this collection working for me. Oh well, MAC’s fall and winter/holiday collections (ex. Winter 09, Red She Said,Tartan Tale) always catch my and my wallet’s attention:)

I’m a bit sad because I really want to love this collection. I love all things cute and nod to Japanese street style is right up my alley and how could I not love a collection that mentions giving butterfly kisses to multi-culti cuties and cute shoes in the description, I mean, that’s just so cute but sadly I’m not a pastel wearing type of gal and just about all of these shades especially the lippies would make me look like a hot mess:(

MAC!!!! Why aren’t you available yet on the website? I need me some QC stuff now! I am loving all the lipsticks and I want all three blushes. Not sure about the quad. I may have to wait being that I am hearing that Flighty will have colored mascaras & Fashion Flower will have lipsticks one in a teal green color…yes!!!!!
I enjoy the Fall & Winter collections mostly due to the darker colors. Can’t wait to find out about them.

Due to my impatience w/MAC I ordered from Macy’s and will receive my stuff in two days. I don’t know what is going on with, but the collection still isn’t up. If anyone is interested Macy’s offers free shipping w/$50 or more just like MAC does.

I ordered from Nordtrom early. They only had St Germain lipstick but the rest of the collection was up yesterday. Mac has the products on the site but not in the what’s new. You have to search around for everything. Macy’s has bits and pieces of the collection. Oh and Nordstrom if your order is $100 you get a bag of goodies including a Coach perfume and Nars Orgasm Illuminator.

I love this collection! Especially the lipsticks. I picked up four of the five they released from the collection (I had Saint Germaine previously). Check out my blog for my reviews:

I can’t stand when mac brings out a whole bunch of pastel colours! Especially as a lot of the colours can be unsuitable for WoC as it requires hard work to get colour payoff!
