Mac Quite Cute Bubble Tea and Giggly Swatches


Hi everyone! When I first saw preview pics of Mac's quite Cute collection (ages ago on numerous beauty blogs), I had made up my mind to get one thing, the Mineralize Blush in Giggly. The preview pics of it the mineralize blushes with their little hearts just looked too adorable!


When the collection came out, I caved and also bought the Plushglass in Bubble Tea. I've been looking for a nude gloss for the past 6 months, and the name and shade of this gloss is so cute!



Here are some close up pics of the Mineralize Blush in Giggly:



It's a duo toned blusher (I love how the second shade is in the form of a heart!), in light pink and pearly plum. Blended together, you get a pinky-violet shade with subtle sheen. This blush is quite pigmented as the colours show up strongly. A slight downpoint to this blush was how powdery it was. When little bits of powder would get all over the packaging when swirling the blush with a brush. you can see an example of this in the pic above, powder is collecting at the edges of the blush.


Below are swatches of the blush:


L-R: Pink shade, Plum Shade (the heart), and mixed together


And the blush (both colours mixed together on my cheek):


I really like this shade as it brightens up my skin and gives me a fresher appearance.


Next up is the Plushglass in bubble Tea. This is my first Mac Plushglass.


The Plushglass glosses have plumping properties which are apparent with the tingling sensation my lips got when I applied the gloss. Bubble Tea is a creamy pale peachy nude with subtle micro-shimmer.


Here are swatches of this gloss on my hand and lips:



This gloss is really sheer and gives a nice 'nude' look to the lips.
