  1. Perfect to warm up the crease Review by Nemesis

    I use this pinky shadow with unexpected and shimma shimma in my inner corner and it is just such a nice color to give some warm and romantic look to the eyes. (Posted on 6/10/16)

  2. Nice Review by Sherri

    I really like this color a lot! I use mostly on my eyelids. It's a nice pink not bright just right. (Posted on 3/7/16)

  3. Perfect Pretty In Pink Review by Donna

    If you're looking for that perfect pink. STOP you have found it!! It's not too bright, perfectly warm and very "adult" pink.. If that makes sense lol. I pair it with purples and "Bitten".. Can be "soft" or build it for a "deeper" pink. (I'm a medium skin tone BTW. Olive complected and I tan easily)

    Love, love, love it!! I have purchased this one twice and I've already hit pan again!!

    As always, MUG quality shadow. Perfectly buttery and blendable. (Posted on 3/4/16)

  4. Nice Review by Leaia

    Great soft pink, especially for a transition color. I must admit with my medium skin tone it gets lost much of the time. Powdery, but blends well. I get some transfer of color from lid to brow area more so than with other MUGs . I don't think this is a bad shadow, I just can't figure it out for me. (Posted on 2/20/16)

  5. Perfect Pink! Review by Chiara

    I love this shade so much! It's a beautiful medium warm pink that is perfect for the crease or all over the lid! It is not an unwearable pink at all! It is so stunning and blends like a dream! The pigmentation is on point! (Posted on 1/17/16)

  6. Great muted pink Review by Rikki

    I am fair skinned, and on me this color is definitely pink but less warm than it looks. Nice crease color, and the formula of this one is great, Super easy to blend. My only complaint is that this color needs to be mixed with something else or it looks odd with my skin tone. (Posted on 12/23/15)

  7. Versatile Review by stephanie

    This is a pretty pink although it does look more muted than in the swatch pic. I'm a nw30 so it's more neutrally pink on me. Great color but it seems to have a lot of fallout. I like to apply it over my crease and then pair it with cocoa bear in my outer v. Nice color. I'd say get it if you're undecided. (Posted on 12/14/15)

  8. One of my favs! Review by Lacy Joy

    I bought this color a while back due to how much Jaclyn Hill used it in her tutorials. Had it not been for that, Idk if I would've purchased it. Which would've been a damn shame. Of all my MUG shadows, between this n Bitten, I use this almost daily. I use it more as a crease/transition shade. Especially while using Bitten. It's just so beautiful and girly! I love it! It's so smooth and creamy. It blends beautifully! It's such a subtle pink color. But not so subtle it's invisible.Thank God for Youtube! There are so many things I've purchased due to customer review, this being one of them! And I really feel I'd been missing out without this in my life! Perfection! (Posted on 9/19/15)

  9. beautiful Review by tatiana

    i love this eyeshadow, i think its a musthave for everyone. looks perfect in the crease. (Posted on 8/17/15)

  10. wow Review by Inga

    beautiful deep pink color! you can blend any other colors with this, to make them pop or a little bit of surprise-sunrise. in swatch it looks more bright pink than it is.
    this is the one that I say- everybody needs this! (Posted on 8/8/15)

  11. Great pink withoud looking like Barbie Review by Gloria

    It's very neutral which makes it a great transition color for a lot of different colors. On natural days I just blend this in the crease and it doesn't need anything else. It looks very fresh. (Posted on 7/27/15)

  12. Unique! Review by Amber Rae

    I love this shade and hade nothing like it.. I'm very pale with green eyes and this is the perfect transition for so many looks!! (Posted on 7/22/15)

  13. You need this! Review by Ingrid

    Just wow! I nothing like this! An awesome transition color for just about every color!!! Big thumbs up Marlena!!!!! (Posted on 6/29/15)

  14. Versastile little note! Review by ColorGirl

    This one is great as crease color, blending color, all over color as well as cheek color! It's mutated median purplish pink color that looks more like a soft dude pink on the skin. Really pretty. As cheek color it's quite pigmented so be sure to use a light hand. I can't wait to wear this a lot! (Posted on 6/17/15)

  15. Very wearable Review by Séverine

    Very nice texture and pigmentation, same as others MUG matte eyeshadows. The color is really good, more muted than it appears on the picture. (Posted on 5/11/15)

  16. The picture is much different than the color Review by Talia

    This is really a matte medium pink. I love it through the crease paired with a blue-toned purple on the lid. Also great on the lid with cool browns though the crease. Very pigmented and soft. (Posted on 5/10/15)

  17. Pretty Review by Sonam

    Love this color! I am becoming a makeup geek addict. (Posted on 4/6/15)

  18. love it -- pinky brown transition Review by Elizabeth

    Another excellent transition for the pinky-mauve-brown crease.
    Excellent pigmentation, blends very well, great wear time. (Posted on 1/18/15)

  19. Great for pale skin Review by Andreja

    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 :) (Posted on 12/17/14)

  20. Mostly brown with a hint of pink Review by Beth

    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. :(

  21. more pink then photo Review by Chelsea

    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 :) (Posted on 10/16/14)

  22. Love Love LOVE Review by Jessica

    Perfect texture. Beautiful color. Super pigmented. Ideal transition color. (Posted on 10/2/14)

  23. LOVE IT! Review by Lexxus

    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! :) (Posted on 9/19/14)

  24. Beautiful colour! Review by Muna

    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. (Posted on 8/16/14)

  25. Wow... Review by Beth

    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! (Posted on 8/6/14)

  26. Love it! Review by Lairah

    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! (Posted on 6/12/14)

  27. Nice surprise! Review by Desiree'

    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. (Posted on 4/22/14)

  28. One year and still loving it Review by Chelsie

    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. (Posted on 4/1/14)

  29. unique Review by danielle

    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. (Posted on 3/15/14)

  30. Beauty Review by Smoochy

    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. (Posted on 2/25/14)

  31. Not a favorite :( Review by justcy

    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. (Posted on 10/30/13)

  32. Love it!! Review by Veronica

    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 :) (Posted on 9/16/13)

  33. I ADORE THIS COLOR!! Review by Lisa

    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 :) (Posted on 2/28/13)

  34. NO OTHER COLOR OUT THERE! Review by Ana

    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! (Posted on 10/22/12)

  35. Tan person = More like a soft pink Review by Izzy

    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. (Posted on 10/21/12)

  36. My Favourite Review by Carly

    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. (Posted on 8/29/12)

  37. muted beautiful pink! Review by Devon

    Beautiful muted pink (Posted on 8/18/12)

  38. Gorgeous Review by Whitney

    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. (Posted on 6/27/12)

  39. Totally matte, beautiful pink Review by Sandra

    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. (Posted on 5/9/12)

  40. WOW WOW Review by melissa

  41. Beautiful Neutral Review by Krysten

    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! (Posted on 2/21/12)

  42. better than I thought Review by Monika

    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 :). (Posted on 2/1/12)

  43. 2nd Try and WOW! Review by Miki

    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 :)! (Posted on 2/1/12)

  44. love MUG shadows Review by jujubean758

    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! (Posted on 1/30/12)

  45. Love it!!! Review by laine

    Using this color on my lids. It's a really nice mellow pink color. :) (Posted on 1/23/12)

  46. Love! Review by Crystaleee

    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! (Posted on 1/4/12)

  47. I'm in love Review by Genesis

    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! (Posted on 12/16/11)
