MAC Cult of Cherry Review and hey, long time no post...

Wow...I am so sorry for the loooooong delay in posts here. August has been crazy with Otakon, a min-vacation, and some other crazy odds and ends...but I am back and should be posting once-bi-weekly again. YAY!!! least I come back with a RAVE review for MAC's first line for Autumn 2008. Cult of Cherry:

Cult of Cherry is a collection of deep burgundy, gorgeous browns, a really scary shade of lime green, and cherry reds which wet my lips as soon as I saw the promos for it. Nothing says fall like deep shades of brown and red.

Shades of Lust:
My former inner goth child and 16 year old self fell immediately in love with the Mattene lipsticks in Kirsh (blackened cranberry) and Bing (Blackened Eggplant). I did return Bing because it was a bit too purple on me, but I ADORE Kirsh. I already own Russian Red lipstick, so I opted out of purchasing it.

Jampacked (sheer grape) lipglass looks great on it's own or over any of the really dark shades of lip colors that are available in this collection. I also picked up Cult of Cherry (Clean red) lipglass. It is a really flattering shade of red that when placed over Russian Red, makes a very sexy red lip. I like to wear CoC alone for glossy, cherry stained lips.

I only bought one of the eye quads. Spiced Chocolate is the most beautiful shades of brown, burgundy, cream, and rust I have ever seen. The other 2 quads available had shades I already own or, scared me (I am looking at the green shade in the Tempting Quad here)

Anyhoo, on to the Face of the Week:

I was inspired by the Cherry Blossom look from the CoC faces MAC had on the site. I recreated the eye look seen there.

Eyes: MAC Spiced Chocolate Eye Quad

Highlight: Nanogold
Lid and lower eye: Sweet Chestnut
Contour: Spiced Chocolate

Cheeks: MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful

Lips: MAC Mattene Lipstick in Kirsh
MAC Lipglass in Jampacked

So..did you haul any MAC Cult of Cherry

Tell me what you think.

Long update..well it may be longer.

I apologize for neglecting to post. I am currently at what I call my "crunch time" in preparation for Otakon 2008. It's next week and I have a ton of work I have to do before I head out of town for 6 days. I was also down with a nasty summer flu that had me out of commission for 2 days. I'm a lot better now, so yay!!!

I am going to write some quickie reviews and lustings in my spare time since there are many new collections for this fall I am drooling over lol.

Take care loves and see you on the Flip Side. ^_^
