Cult of Cherry (August 21st, 2008) (Promo Photos)

(This image is a promotional image for the launch.)

Cherry on top. Pity poor Eve, there’s a new forbidden fruit. With a smoldering eye and a plush, purple-red mouth, she’s a living, sensual pleasure. The Cult of Cherry is luscious, dramatic, undeniable eroticized. Ripened lips, Spiced Hot Chocolate eyes, or Illegal Purple nails, combine to seduce with a sweet-and-shock, way-to go dark. Separates the bitter from the sweet. This drama just gets more delicious.

  2. natasha

    did they change the texture of nanogold for this collection? wasn’t it a lustre before? now it’s a satin?

  3. Shefali

    I’m DYING for this collection to launch. This whole color story is right up my alley!

  4. So glad to be passing on this!!! I am way too pale and blonde to wear most of the lip colours!

  5. von

    omg, those quads sound DIVINE…I really want them

  6. Marni

    I think this collection fits more with darker skin tones. It’s perfect!

  7. Pquanda

    I am very anxious about the pan I hit on tempting, and stopped myself from buying another cause I thought, just a few months till the tempting quad is out!!

  8. Sandy

    I’ll take So Scarlet coz I like Amplified cremes. The rest I’ll have to see in person

  9. Elle

    Yup, this collection’s going to be the death of my savings account. What do you think of Mattenes? I’ve never tried them and I’m not the biggest matte fan in the world, but I might try these if the colors are nice…

    • cloudburst

      The Mattenes are really silky & not drying at all. The texture is like a satin just without the sheen. I think you’ll like them!

    • Hi Elle,

      Mattenes are great, because they’re pretty much a matte finish but very silky and smooth, great color.

    I’m really bummed that the three new mattenes sound (and look in the promo photos) SOOOO dark. I’m not into goth lips :( But I absolutely love the mattene texture. So that’s a bummer for me. At least they are reproing Rapturous though – I need that one :) Other than that, I’m quite sure I will end up with 2 of the quads, 2 of the l/s, 2 of the l/g, 1 of the blushes and both nail laquers. Yikes!

  11. cloudburst

    I think I want the 3 quads, most of the lipglasses and a couple of the lipsticks.

    MAC is so evil to release Cult of Cheery & Overrich the same day – I am gonna be +++ broke on Aug 21st!

  12. I bought Russian Red and its awesome :)
    Yesterday from ElectroFlash I bought Lil Hot Pepper, also fabuuulousss
