Yummy411: MAC Cult of Cherry Excitement!

I was excited about Cult of Cherry because I'm a quad lover (sucker for the LE eye shadow quads). I saw the Dark Edge and Nanogold from the N Collection were being promoted as well as two other peermanent colors. Then I've been lusting after a dark lip ever since this. So I was super excited over the collection. However, that excitement died down until I saw these two images from Essence magazine's beauty section:
How lovely!! This picture is my ultimate favorite right now! The dark lips (I think she's wearing Bing, even though they say she's wearing Kirsch), rich, flawless skin, a better take on the neutral and green eye. I can stare at this for hours!! Brows, lashes, hair, the(much coveted) feather headband, the nails (again, they say it's Illegal Purple polish, but I don't think so)... I'll stop there. Have you seen these pics in your latest issue of Essence mag (with the Obama's on the cover)? Ahhh ... The Pretty Committee is planning our own Cult of Cherry party. We are tres excited!
*Need a lip liner for one of the dark lippies from the Cult of Cherry collection? Pick one and pair with Nightmoth lip liner.*

I finally went out and brought this Essence issue and I immediately thought of you. And your love for this fall's trend of dark lips paired with very neutral eyes. Very pretty look. Even though I'm not a dark lip type girl. I can't wait to see all the different looks the Pretty Committee members come up with for our next meet up. Have you picked up anything yet?

See...per your suggestion I went out and copped that Essence but I got the wrong one. I have the with just Michelle O on the cover. Gotta snag the other one. I looove those looks and will definitely be trying to play around with them. Bing is the greatest thing ever.

@ slvrlips: =))) yes huneee! i'm so looking forward to our cult of cherry party!! chocolate rum balls!?

@ b: aw man! yeh you gotta get any mag with the obamas on it! nice essence spread...ok.. i have kirsch lovely! it was so hard to pick the 'one' bing-browned eggplant, kirsch- browned cranberry, and chockful deep brown.. they all are gorgeous! bing looked purple black on my lips, so with kirsch you could see more brownish red and chockful was the basic brown. i'm glad i got my dark lippy finally!

GURRRRRLLL!! That picture is so fly, isnt it?! Like you, I kept staring at it when I was looking through my magazine. That is the picture that basically convinced me to get Bing AND Kirsch. I am loving everything about the makeup on that model.

I am going to recreate it soon, I have to!!!

I've had the Essence a while, but haven't cracked it open yet. Awesome photos!

I love these pictures as well. Have to give this look a try. The thing I found out about some lipstick shades especially the dark ones if your teeth is not extremely white it can make your teeth look yellow. I hear red lipstick makes your teeth look white. Has anyone heard of this?

that pick is gorgeous! i paired bing with a lipliner from the black opal collection at wal-mart...only $3...it was the darkest one...cant remember the name right now...

Yannize said...

so the cult of cherry collection i started off with the blue palette and bing...i have to do it in sections, a girl has got to budget..
i cant wait to bust that bing open! the blue palette makes for an amazing smokey eye...i wore it out last nite...

SuzieC said...

I'm loving this collection and I love the pictres!

Product Junkie Diva said...

Yup as soon as I saw the pictures I loved it. Bing is the color I have had my eye on, it will probably be one of the first things I buy when I get off this product probation...lol.

@ erin: you and me both. this picture made me see the cult of cherry collection in a whole new way!

@ pbw: it's a must see! get to cracking! LOL!

@ rmcandlelight: hmm i've always heard that darker lipstick can make your teeth look whiter. with the l/s being ultra dark in this case, the stark contrast can possibly intensify yellow. red seems as though it may pull out yellow tones in teeth... maybe a blue based red may make your teeth look whiter....hmmm i'll look into this.

@ makeupbyrenren: oooh black opal! drugstore lipliners! thanks for putting me on. you know i'm on the hunt!

@ yannize: girl i feel you.. i wanted the blue palette (shadowy lady quad?) but that smudged violet didn't show up well.. how was your experience?

@ suziec: me too!!

@ pjd: lol! i love bing!

Yannize said...

i had to break out the smudge brush and make it work with the violet...but I enjoyed the color...very sultry,,,very bedroom eye...
great with lashes...since I have given up mascara lashes is what I rock on the regular...
