Guest Post: Review and swatches of MAC Quite Cute collection

MAC’s latest collection Quite Cute was released earlier this month on April 7th. I have a weakness for pastels so I picked up a few things from the collection. I also picked up a Gold Deposit Mineralize Skin Finish. It’s a part of the other collection released this month from MAC, Bronze Everyday. I was almost out of my favorite foundation MAC’s Pro Longwear (NW50) so I picked up my second bottle. I am addicted to it. It lasts longer than any other foundation that I have tried. I just set it and forget it, I’m good for ten or more hours. Amazing!

Check out the pictures and swatches of my haul.

Both are  geared towards treating acne and retail for under $6. I’m not even kidding.
