a few EOTDs for the non-believers of the Quite Cute Quad :)

I've heard nothing but negativity about the new eyeshadow quad that came out with the new MAC collection, Quite Cute. Most people have said the quality suck, or the pigmentation isn't good. Ladies (and gents), it was INTENDED that way. Given that MAC has literally hundreds of other very well pigmented shadows, it's safe to say they know how to make pigmented shadows. The Quite Cute shadows are meant to be very soft. If they wanted them more pigmented, they would have done it.

With that said, if you're looking for more color out of this quad, it is easily attainable by using a colored cream base underneath. You can also pair with other darker colors. There are endless ways to use this quad.
