Did you look in the session chooser on the login screen?

Even after a successful install, Cinnamon would still be the default choice unless you changed it.

I can't tell you where exactly to find the session chooser. On my Mint MATE system, it's a small icon in the upper right of the login dialog. Clicking on it produces a dialog for selecting the GUI environment.
