Editor’s Choice – Top 5 Comeback Faves

You’ve seen over 50 witty, funny, flirty, and savage responses to try when someone calls you cute. Now it’s time to reveal our editor’s personal favorites!

After combing through dozens of cute comebacks, here are the 5 our editor thinks are absolute fire. Keep these ones locked and loaded for the next “cute” comment!

1. Well I sure hope so, ’cause I spent 2 hours getting ready!

Why this is perfect: Playfully calls out the casually-thrown “cute” comment by hinting at the time, effort, and intention that actually went into your appearance. Gently challenges the assumption that you just rolled out of bed looking cute.

When to use:

  • When you want a funny yet subtly bold response
  • If someone compliments your outfit or appearance specifically

When NOT to use:

  • If you didn’t actually spend much/any time getting ready
  • For behavior-based compliments like a cute laugh

2. Giggles Why yes, yes I am cute

Why this is perfect: Confident, playful, and unapologetic – owning your cuteness with a giggle and a hair flip playfully leans into the “cute” comment rather than push against it.

When to use:

  • When you want a response that’s cocky yet cute
  • If you are proud of your appearance that day

When NOT to use:

  • If you dislike being called “cute” and prefer more mature compliments

3. Well I certainly try my hardest eyelash flutter

Why this is perfect: Like the first comeback, this playfully hints that your appearance didn’t just magically happen while subtly batting your eyelashes. Shows effort without directly calling out the comment.

When to use:

  • When someone compliments your hair, makeup, outfit etc
  • If you want a flirty yet slightly sassy response

When NOT to use:

  • If it’s meant as a behavior or personality-based compliment
  • In professional settings

4. Cute? Is that the best you’ve got? I was going for gorgeous.

Why this is perfect: Flips the script to subtly call out the potentially minimizing comment while boldly stating you consider yourself gorgeous, not just “cute”.

When to use:

  • If being called cute feels minimizing
  • When you want to reclaim your confidence

When NOT to use:

  • If it was meant sincerely as a heartfelt compliment
  • From someone you want to encourage

5. Well aren’t you sweet! I like sweet…

Why this is perfect: Returns the compliment playfully while hinting at reciprocal romantic interest. Creates intrigue and leaves them wanting more!

When to use this:

  • When said flirtatiously by someone you are interested in
  • To gently gauge their interest

When NOT to use:

  • From family members or friends
  • In professional settings
