  • Pretty

    Review by Sonam on April 6, 2015

    Love this color! I am becoming a makeup geek addict.
  • love it -- pinky brown transition

    Review by Elizabeth on January 18, 2015

    Another excellent transition for the pinky-mauve-brown crease.
    Excellent pigmentation, blends very well, great wear time.
  • Great for pale skin

    Review by Andreja on December 17, 2014

    This colour comes off more pink than anything else on my very pale skin and I love it! This was exactly what I wanted.
    If you use Cupcake on darker skin tones however it comes off less pink, more muted, more neutral. Ideal if you want a soft pop of colour or a transition shade for purples, pinks and reds,

    I ordered Shimma Shimma, Creme Brulee and Cupcake and all are soft, blendable and very pigmented :)
  • Mostly brown with a hint of pink

    Review by Beth on December 12, 2014

    Out of the 13 shadows I ordered, this one was the one I regret getting.

    It is very dry. It barely swatches. When applied, it is more brown than pink. The swatch on this site does not match what I have recvd at all.
    I'd say this is brown with a pink undertone. I was looking for something more pink. I got it based off the swatches I've seen and other reviews. Did I get a flop? I'm dissapointed with this one. :(

  • more pink then photo

    Review by Chelsea on October 16, 2014

    sooo much more pink then it looks in the photo! but gorgeous none the less. great for a orange smokey eye or even a a purple smokey eye :)
  • Love Love LOVE

    Review by Jessica on October 2, 2014

    Perfect texture. Beautiful color. Super pigmented. Ideal transition color.
  • LOVE IT!

    Review by Lexxus on September 19, 2014

    I am so in love with this color! When I first swatched it I just fell in love. It's a beautiful color. At first I thought it was going to be a super dark color but it's not! It's a very pretty kinda dark pink color. You won't regret buying it! :)
  • Beautiful colour!

    Review by Muna on August 16, 2014

    I love this colour especially mixed with chickadee as a transition colour. Every time I do a makeup look, I have to use these two colours together. When I first purchased cupcake I was afraid that it won't show up on my medium to tanned skin but when I received it I was pleasantly surprised and excited that I was wrong. Very beautiful colour.
  • Wow...

    Review by Beth on August 6, 2014

    I am NW30, blonde hair, blue eyes. I model a lot so I'm always looking for colors that make blue eyes pop. Pinks and oranges work well. Reds are tricky, sometimes they only seem to emphasize tired, red eyes! I wasn't sure about this one but it turned out to be great on me. On me it looks more like the swatches on Temptalia, which is a great cross-reference when in doubt. Excellent products, Marlena! Thank you!
  • Love it!

    Review by Lairah on June 12, 2014

    I wasn't sure about this product due to it being matte and most of the time even with high end products matte eye shadows are really chalky and not very pigmented. I went ahead and purchased it and I love it! You have to build a little bit and it's a tad bit chalky, but not bad. I love it and it blends beautiful with browns. Loving this color!
  • Nice surprise!

    Review by Desiree' on April 22, 2014

    I'm not too crazy about pinks, but this is a great crease/ blending color. Love it! Definitely more pink than in the swatch and not as pink as it shows in the group swatch.
  • One year and still loving it

    Review by Chelsie on April 1, 2014

    This was one of my first purchases over a year ago and I still can't get enough of it. The color is not what I expected based on the picture but it is a beautiful soft pink. I use it with just about any look. It blends easy and works with my light skin and hazel eyes.
  • unique

    Review by danielle on March 15, 2014

    This shade is more pink than the picture shown and I really love it. It is unlike anything I have ever owned, it is so darn pretty. I am an NW 20 and I use this for my crease and I also use it for a lid shade when I want to do a more unique look using this with unexpected and shimma shimma. It does need two layers to really pop but it sure does when you add that second layer.

    Review by Smoochy on February 25, 2014

    I love this color. I'm fair with cool toned skin, and this looks so gorgeous in the crease or all over the lid. Also, these last all day. I put cupcake, vanilla bean, and peach smoothie (sounds delicious) on yesterday morning around 6, and it looked the same at 9pm after a full day of work and a 4 mile jog in the evening. I really struggle to find shadows that stay all day with my oily lids and my dry, itchy eyes. I love MUG eyeshadows.
  • Not a favorite :(

    Review by justcy on October 30, 2013

    I have about12 MUG shadows and this is not my favorite color purchased. On my NC30 warm skin, this color is not flattering but then again, I am not a pinkie kinda gal but more of a bronzy/warm/plum girl. I think matte medium pink is a difficult color to pull off and to manufacture as it felt a bit flaky and rubs off easily. I would still recommend this color for those gals with cool, light skin tones. At 5.99 a pop, I can't quite complain. I'll just give this one away and order something more flattering for myself.
  • Love it!!

    Review by Veronica on September 16, 2013

    I am in love with this beauty!! When I'm finished with applying eye shadows and take this color on the mug outer v brush and just lightly brush the color above the crease, the finish is just WOW :) you know the saying: that something extra!! That is what this color is to me :) it gives the look something extra :)

    Review by Lisa on February 28, 2013

    I was surprised at how much I liked this color. I am usually a purple girl. I never really even tried wearing pink shadow because of my fair skin I thought it wouldn't show up. Well I am going to be re-ordering a new one soon! I love it paired with country girl. Got a compliment on it just the other day! It goes on so easily & smoothly which helps me out because my mornings can get hectic & I'm usually running late but still want to look my best :)

    Review by Ana on October 22, 2012

    I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THIS COLOR!!!! I would only use soft brown by MAC to blend out all my harsh colors when doing my eye makeup but now i find myself reaching for either cupcake or unexpected! 1 OF 2 GREATEST EYESHADOWS MADE BY MAKEUP GEEK!
  • Tan person = More like a soft pink

    Review by Izzy on October 21, 2012

    The color looks slightly different in real life. You should check out the swatch before you buy it. But I am not complaining its a beautiful color. For a soft matte its cute. I am pretty tan so it looked soft pink on me even though it looks peachy on screen
    I would so totally buy it again though. It goes great for a highlighter or on the lid and a darker color on crease like Mocha.
  • My Favourite

    Review by Carly on August 29, 2012

    Cupcake is my fave MUG colour, it is easy to apply being so smooth and covers easily, and it is a quiet achiever being matte and medium toned it is not a show stealer but an every day reliable colour. Looks great with unexpected and purple rain. Subtle and femine it is one of my go-to eye colours it, performs really well, stays all day, and goes well on my fair skin. I highly recommend Cupcake.
  • muted beautiful pink!

    Review by Devon on August 18, 2012

    Beautiful muted pink
  • Gorgeous

    Review by Whitney on June 27, 2012

    This color is absolutely gorgeous. I'm very fair and this color looked beautiful. I paired it with Shimma Shimma and Cocoa Bear for a nice neutral look for my son's ball game tonight. The texture is fabulous and I'm nothing but impressed with MUG eyeshadows.
  • Totally matte, beautiful pink

    Review by Sandra on May 9, 2012

    I've got medium skin tone & this shade shows up on my skin just fine. It's very pigmented, easily blended & works really well together with a variety of different shades. I don't experience any fallout with this shadow at all & yes, it also makes a really nice blush. I love the finish & the texture of this shadow. Definitely a MUG shadow everybody should try.

    Review by melissa on March 1, 2012

  • Beautiful Neutral

    Review by Krysten on February 21, 2012

    This color is gorgeous, and very versatile. Great for a pink smokey eye, looks amazing blended with deep browns. Is a bit darker in person than it appears in the picture. Love it!
  • better than I thought

    Review by Monika on February 1, 2012

    I bought this color and 10 other colors. I started to like cupcake after I worked with it few times. One thing: Make sure you have a good eye primer! If you don't, the cupcake can fade easily and doesn't show well on light skin. FYI: The matt shadows need little more application on the eye than the shiny/shimmer ones. Overall, very good quality! Great colors! GREAT PACKAGING! Just be careful opening them :).
  • 2nd Try and WOW!

    Review by Miki on February 1, 2012

    I bought the cupcake and other shades and I wasn't originally impressed with any of them. I gave them another try and, boy, WAS I WRONG!!!!!!! I changed my eye primer and I've noticed a big difference. The color is beautiful, but it needs few layers to be visible on a light beige skin. I bought like 10 more shades and the shimmery ones are great. They are very pigmented and beautiful. Thank you for proving me wrong :)!
  • love MUG shadows

    Review by jujubean758 on January 30, 2012

    I have medium skin tone with yellow undertones, and this tends to get lost on my skin. It's very subtle. So I use it mostly as a blending color when I want a slight pop of color vs. using a nude color. I order this, Unexpected, Latte, White Lies, Vanilla Bean, and something else that I can't remember right now. :) All are great quality, very pigmented, and super-blendable. I'll never be blowing twice as much on one pan of MAC shadows again! I'll definitely be ordering more soon!
  • Love it!!!

    Review by laine on January 23, 2012

    Using this color on my lids. It's a really nice mellow pink color. :)
  • Love!

    Review by Crystaleee on January 4, 2012

    Love this color. It's a lot closer to my Skin color than I realized. The hint of pink is gorgeous. This can be used for more than just eye shadow. I'll try it as well as a highlight, blush color as well as the lid. Very nice!
  • I'm in love

    Review by Genesis on December 16, 2011

    I recently ordered 7 eyeshadows (Preppy, cupcake, fairy tale, ocean breeze, mermaid, poolside, & mango tango) and I am in LOVE. These shadows are incredibly affordable and are of amazing quality. I am a Make Up For Ever lover with MAC as a close second and I can tell you that I'm going to be making more orders. There are some definite dupes in this line (Preppy is close to Mac's Cork, Mango Tango is a slightly more shimmer version of rule, and Mermaid is close to Urban Decay Flipside) and they just as good if not better than the pricer dupe!

    On top of the amazingness of this product (yes, I made up a word...that's how excited I am right now) the shipping was quick. I ordered these on the 13th, my package was shipped on the 14th, and it arrived at my door on the 16th!
