Mac Quite Cute haul and more...

Earlier in the week I noticed the new mac collection was available online,'Quite Cute' is the latest offering from mac and I was vaugely interested in the selection of new products.After looking at swatches online I decided to purhcase just two items,Little girl type nail polish and Playing Koi lipstick.Most of the lipsticks offered are either brights or pastels,I can not stand lilac or pastel pinks,St Germain is disgusting on me.However Playing Koi caught my eye,it is a pale,peachy shade,with a hint of pink but is most deffinately one of those nude lipsticks you have to make work for you.I haven`t had chance to try it properly but it doesn`t appear to be one of those 'throw it on and go' shades.It kind of reminds me of myth but pinker,I love a nude lip especially for a night out and as I have very red pigmented lips shades like this accompanied by a pink gloss usually work well to tone them down .Little girl type is a lovely liliac shade that is quite unique to me,its a very pale liliac and I own nothing else like it.Like I said I haven`t had time to try these out yet but I shall do a NOTD using this very soon,I`m so excited to try it.

Other products purchased included were two backups,sff in NC35 and All that glitters eyshadow.I have been without All that Gitters in my collection for about 2 months now,its the only eyeshadow I have ever used up completely and I highly reccomend.I love how it can be applied alone with a hint of eyeliner for a super quick ,no fuss day time look but also works well teamed with something darker in the crease for at night.It is SO versatile.I also ordered an empty quad for when I go on holiday as I don`t want to travel with my big palette.I thought it was about time I add some Mac eye brushes to my collection as currently I`m using benefit ones I`ve had since I was about 17.I have several mac face brushes which I use regularly so I was excited to add the 217 and 219 to my collection.

The final two products were Mac face and body foundation which I ordered in C4,I was very excited to get my hands on this as I`ve been wanting to have a lighter coverage foundation in my collecton for periods when my skin is doing ok (which is not at the moment may I add!).I was torn between C3 and C4 but decided to go with 4 after reading some reviews on makeup alley.I ordered Mac`s latest concealer offering which is of course their pro longwear concealer.I tried this out under my eyes today and I love it,its not as thick as I imagined it may be yet it did a great job of covering up my shocking under eye circles.I don`t want to speak to soon but so far so good.

Updates on these products will be coming up shortly once I`ve had chance to use them properly and come up with fair opinion on everything.Is there anything on your Quite Cute wishlist?
