Company’s Description

“CUTE!” The most fanciful, fun and flattering compliment and 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 colors, 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!

For its Quite Cute collection, MAC has named several of the products after Japanese words and phrases. “Moshi moshi” means (roughly) “hello” and “sakura” means cherry blossom. I’m surprised none of these colors was named “kawaii,” which is the Japanese word for “cute.” But, anyway, here are the items to anticipate for this April!

    I think most of these are going to be too light and/or pastel for me, even though I am only about NC20…except the blushes, and the nail polish…you can get away with anything on your nails…though I’m not sure if they’ll work since I am asian with a yellowish undertone. Definitely going to have to figure out a way to try them…I guess a counter would let me swatch the testers on my nails, but then I’ll have to stand around, wasting valuable shopping time, while I wait for it to dry. :-p
