Swatches & Review: MAC Cult of Cherry


This particular collection didn't impress me personally because the eyeshadow quads featured some permanent eyeshadows and repromotes from past collections. I already have "Deep Truth" (as well as the million variations of it), "Shadowy Lady", and "Tempting". The other colors I doubt id use although they are gorgeous, like "Dark Edge". But for the most part, I think they can be duped with some of the permanent colors or even the Overrich Pigments.

And even though dark vampy lips are the trend for the season, I just don't see it happening on me. The lippies are very rich in color and I love "Kirsch", however I doubt i'll be reaching for it too often. I did manage to get "Liquer" lipglass since I don't have any brown colored lipglasses and "So Scarlet" lipstick since it looked gorgeous on Ren.

I am hoping once I start applying makeup on people as practice I can come with a nice look using them. ***Sorry I accidentally deleted the "Shadowy Lady" quad but I am sure you can find swatches of them online.

Here are some swatches:

Tempting Quad:

Spiced Chocolate Quad:

i think you'd still look fantastic in dark, vampy lips. it just takes getting used to it.

i like the spiced chocolate quad. i haven't bought any makeup in months... :0/

I think I want to go back and swatch Rapturous, Lightly Ripe, Rich & Ripe, and Jampacked again.

Initially I didn't like Jampacked.

Cult of Cherry, So Scarlet and Bing are just divine to me! :)

So Scarlet looks great on you.

That color seems to be very flattering on everyone I've seen wearing it so far.

The blush swatches look nice, but still no CoC for me.

I really love O, I think lipsticks with some gold shimmer in them seem to suit me. Everything else would probably make me look like a clown.

Hello!! I am in LOVE with the Cherry Blossom Lip Glass and was wondering if there is a dupe for it out there. There are no MAC Counters for almost 100 miles, and I would hate to buy it online without having tried it.

Thank you so much!!
