The new QiYi pastel 2x2 is a budget cube that is similar to that of the Macaroon colour scheme by MoYu. It is one of the cheapest 2x2 cubes we have available and great for beginners that are looking to practice and learn how to solve a cube.

So far I have had no issues with the cube and I have taken it everywhere. I even matched the wr with it and the colours are pretty.
I like this as a novelty, but due to several points I would rate it lower than most 2x2s. The cube turns smoothly, but catches frequently. The tensions are adjustable - I found it quite tight out of the box. The cube is not magnetised, which I find quite irritating during solves, but is not a dealbreaker.
The cube has a nice colour scheme that looks great on display, but which makes it not preferable for solving. Also, the cube needed a wipe down after opening as the factory lube covered the external pieces.
Bought this for my daughter as her first cube. Excellent quality and an exceptional price.
