MAC Quite Cute Haul, Swatches & Review!

Hey loves! Mac's Quite Cute collection is out!! ♥
I had been waiting for this collection to release for months & months!! I am a lover of all things pastel and cutesy, so this collection was totally up my alley! To see the haul video I did for this collection click HERE!

Mac's description of Quite Cute:
" 'CUTE!' The most fanciful, fun and flattering compliment a 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 colours, 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. Flash! You’ll ♥ the Mineralize Blush with the sweet heart baked right into it. If it shines, shimmers and pops it’s completely, contagiously, cute! " 

Out of this collection I purchased two lipsticks, a blush, and the quad. 
I got Play Time and Candy Yum Yum lipsticks.

Candy Yum Yum is the super bright, neon pink to the left & Play Time is the purple to the right.
And here's swatches:

Play Time is a cremesheen lipstick, so it's moisturizing and slightly sheer. I'm totally gonna use this up within a month or two :'( 
I can't find a back up ANYWHERE!!
As for Candy Yum Yum, it's a lovely NEON Matte lipstick. No sheen, yet it's still moisturizing to me. I suggest exfoliating before application though. With matte lipsticks, you always want to exfoliate before application so that the lipstick doesn't highlight any imperfections.
Candy Yum Yum is my absolute favorite item out of the collection, hands down! I love it!!'s a neon pink lipstick ^_^

The blush I picked up was the pink blush of the collection, called Giggly.

This blush is such a lovely soft pink! It's soft, but it's still pigmented. As for the heart in the middle, I totally forgot to swatch it..sorry luvs! If you really wanna see it, just let me know.

 This quad consists of lovely pastel colors that are perfect for Spring!
The colors are as follows:  
Moshi! Moshi! - Pale white green gold
Goody Goody Gum Drop - Light white pink 
Boycrazy - Pale lavender with silver pearlized pigments
Azuki Bean - Mid-tone violet

My favorite colors from the quad would have to be Moshi! Moshi!, Boycrazy, and Azuki Bean! Those three were the most pigmented out of the four colors.
These colors are more pigmented than this picture makes them appear to be! UGH!
Just imagine them to be a bit more brighter and deeper colors than this picture shows.

Overall, I was very happy with my purchase! As a matter of fact, I'm waiting on Playing Koi, a peachy nude lipstick from this coloction, to arrive to me in the mail. I'll try to have a swatch up when it arrives =) 

And lastly, here's the FOTD I created using the everything I purchased, except for Play Time!

What did you guys think of this collection?
