MAC Cult of Cherry Color Story Information

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.

Hi Zsofi,

I am hoping not all of the lip colors are so dark, because I am a bit scared of the super dark, vampy colors!

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!!

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…

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!

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!

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!
