So as I mentioned in this post, I had the chance to attend a Cult of Cherry release party at MAC last week. I had a wonderful time! I don’t drink alcohol but the Godiva Lacquer drinks were delicious. I spent 30 minutes actin’ a fool with my favorite make-up artists Sophia and Thai at the Orlando PRO store and gazing at the new products.
I won’t do the list of all of the products as I try not to get too caught up in posting collection product rundowns but I have to say that everything was absolutely beautiful. I have not been impressed with a MAC Collection in quite awhile but I had a great vibe with Cult of Cherry.
Did it make it want to buy the entire collection?
Um…no. But when have I ever purchased an entire collection? LOL! If yall don’t know by now, your Head Newb here is cheap. I can’t spend that much money on make-up despite the obsession.
I found the palettes to be dupe-able. My girl Sophia goes, “Brit, don’t you start….” because she knew I was thinking of similar colors that the palettes’ pans resembled. I can’t help it!
The lipsticks, however were divine. I had similar colors of most and the blushes did not look to be flattering on a dark skinned brown lady. Not to mention I have enough blushes to last me for a lifetime.
So here is what I got:
Being that dark lips is IN for the Fall, I had to cop these two lippies. I was ambivalent for a minute though. Burgundy is one of those colors I always thought Black women needed to move away from. Who remembers how prominent burgundy lips was in the 90′s?
Check out this video for a reference:
But I am learning to except dark lips again. And not just for a Halloween/goth look. I’m thinking that we can rock a pretty dark lip anytime! Check out Bing by itself:
….if you are thinking this, you need to step out of the comfort zone and be a little daring. Life is short, honey bun. Live a little!
I give Cult of Cherry, the collection a thumbs up. I will be rocking Bing all up and down October and November. I even went vampy on the nails.
….are you excited for Cult of Cherry? Likin’ the fall vampy look? Or not so much? Whatchu say?
