MAC Quite Cute Collection

Coming this Spring from MAC is the 'Quite Cute' collection. I'm not a fan of sugary, girly makeup really but I think there's some gems in this collection, in the sorbet like lip and nail colours where there is no frost that is.

It's the lipsticks I'm mostly looking forward to, particularly 'Candy Yum-Yum' which is a matte neon pink, so matte it's like powder and so bright, so I hear...could it rival my NARS Schiap lipstick? The others are 'Playing Koi'- creamy white peach pink, 'Saint Germain' - pastel pink, 'Quite Cute' - bright white lavender, and 'Play Time' - intense violet.

Lilac Lips

Brights and pastels are everywhere this Spring, as usual, and I'm loving it becuase I can't get enough of lilac lippy. This picture is from a beauty story I did last Spring.

Here are some of my kit faves that I whip out at any given opportunity:

- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar is my new favourite thing, this shade is 'Vapid'.
- I love MAC Lavender Whip. It was discontinued ages ago, but wait for the 'Quite Cute' collection this Spring, lots of sherbety pastels and popping candy shades.
- 'Lilac Pastelle' Lipgloss from Revlon.
- This picture does nothing whatsoever for this Pop Gloss from Givenchy in 'Glitter Parm'. It's actually a sheer lilac gloss with sparkling UV glitter, it's magic.
- YSL Gloss Pur 'Pure Sorbet #7'.
- Revlon Luxurious Colour Kohl Eyeliner in 'Very Violet' makes a good lipliner for these lavender lips.

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Foundation

I really like a lot of Givenchy products and this foundation is one of my favourites. It's smooth and light but gives great coverage and when built up and buffed into the skin it looks flawless, really flawless, with a skin-like satin finish.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I love these things. I have all of the shades and use them as often as I can. My faves are Dragon Girl, Damned, Red Square and Toundra.
