Mac Haul: Quite Cute collection + Prep + Prime Highlighter Swatches and Review

I was so excited about this collection I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Mac's previews collections where disappointing to be honest, nothing I would recommend getting. 

This collection on the other hand is amazing. 

 Quite Cute Mineralize Blush

The outer circle on Giggly is a shade of a soft Bubblegum pink. When combined the purple heart gives it a more intense color. The more you apply the purple shade the darker it gets. It has a shimmery frosty finish which I like, It gives this sultry glow effect.

 Miss Behave's outer circle has a peachy beige color. When combined with the blue heart turns out into a nice shade but can go slightly pale I have to say. It works somehow work as a highlighter. But you have to keep an eye when using it as it can give a pale finish, which can look unflattering at times.


Moving on to lipsticks & Lip Pencils:
Candy Yum-Yum: This is my favorite item from this collection. Candy Yum-Yum has a matte finish, one of the reasons I love it so much. It's a  perfect neon bright pink with blue undertones. I'll definitely be stocking up.
Quite Cute: pale lavender with a glossy finish. Even though it has a cremesheen finish I feel like it's glossier than the others. My sister actually got this lipstick (for fun), you wont catch me dead in this shade as I have warm undertones and such shades don't suit my complexion. If you have cool undertones this lipstick would probably suit you. My personal opinion I don't really like it!
Playing Koi  a creamy white peach. I like this lipstick, It can make you look pale at times so it's best to pair it with a gloss. But I still like this lipstick.
In Synch: (lip Pencil) Has a Peachy pink tone. I'm not a lip pencil person, I don't use them a lot. The only lip pencil I sometimes use is spice when I choose to apply nude lipstick. But when I saw the shade of this lip pencil I thought of trying it out. I really like it. It actually works well with Playing Koi. It would work out with Pink/Nude lipsticks.
Primed To perfection Prep+Prime Highlighter 

Radiant Rose: Light Pink tone. Works well with people who have cool undertones. This shade is used by my sister which has a fair skin.
Light Boost: Light Yellow cream. That's the shade I use. At first I thought it might be light for me. But when used It look great. As I have deep dark circles This product wont suffice on it's own. I first applied my corrector then concealer, covered my dark circles and the last step I usually do is apply a cream liquid concealer a shade lighter to give that light flawless look Kim Kardashian sports all the time. So, I swapped my Missha concealer, which i love, with this one. I have to say I really like it It's creamy, does cover slightly and gave me the brightness I wanted. It you don't have dark circles I think you would like this product, as it doesn't quite conceal on it's own. 
Bright Forecast: Peachy Coral tone. After viewing swatches online I bought this shade as I wasn't sure which to get when placing my order. It turned out to be really dark!

Pre+Prime Highlighter is a new permanent addition to the Prep+Prime collection.

Set to release May 20 in Dubai
