Prediction: MAC’s Cult of Cherry Will Spawn Cult Following This Fall

MAC Cult Cherry Prediction: MACs Cult of Cherry Will Spawn Cult Following This Fall
I don’t know where you live, but it was straight-up fall in Philly today. And while I’m an autumn baby (holla at my Libras), I’m sad to see summer slip away. But whether we like it or not, the change of seasons is imminent and inevitable. So to properly prepare you for the coming months, this week, Spoiled Pretty will be bringing you the skinny on the hottest fall makeup collections.

First up is MAC’s Cult of Cherry.

zac+posen+agnes Prediction: MACs Cult of Cherry Will Spawn Cult Following This FallThe GLAMORAMA beauty trend took center stage during the Fall/Winter 2008 Fashion Shows. Glam goes rock with punk-tuated eyes and heady lips. Hedonistic, transformative makeup stole the spotlight. Seen on the runways of such shows at Giles, The Blonds, Vivienne Westwood and Zac Posen (left), MAC Cult of Cherry is the perfect way to get the look. Turn up the volume on your makeup or tone it down for everyday wear, the collection can be worn in a multitude of ways to suit your needs.

Thanks to my friends at MAC, I got sneak peek at the collection. And if the samples I received are any indication, we’re all in for a delicious treat.

So Scarlet Lipstick: Clean grape burgundy (amplified)
Creme Cerise: Sheer yellow taupe (lustre)
Kirsch: Blackened cranberry (matte)
Jampacked: Sheer grape with multi-dimensional pearl (frost)

Though many of these colors are bit dark and saturated to rock right away, I couldn’t resist getting a jump start on my fall makeup wardrobe. Creme Cerise is my new go-to nude. After sundown, I break out Jampacked. Plum de Bois Powder Blush (not pictured) didn’t wow me in the pot, but is absolutely stunning on the skin. And Kirsch has been claimed by Mama Spoiled Pretty (aka Sticky Fingers).

Cult of Cherry will be available in stores and at maccosmetics.com from August 21 through October 2008. But you know how quickly these limited-edition MAC collections fly off the shelves. So I don’t need to tell you to mark your calendars.

Me Plus MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo Equals Love Connection

Love Connection Me Plus MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo Equals Love Connection Of the roughly 22,000 couples who met on Love Connection, 31 eventually married. If MAC Cosmetics were running the show instead of Chuck Woolery, I suspect the odds would have been much higher. You see, MAC recently introduced me to “Love Connection,” a Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo from their new Electro Flash collection, and it was true love at first sight.

MAC+Love+Connection Me Plus MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo Equals Love ConnectionDescribed as “Pale beige with gold and blue veining/Warm gold mono,” this baked duet of shadows has a super-fine pearl finish that’s like multi-dimensional fairy dust on your lids.

Appropriate for daytime and evening wear, this shade is sure to become your number one steady. I haven’t worn another shadow since Love Connection and I met a few weeks ago. Just be sure to prep the lid with a primer. If you apply with a brush, pat it on – as it has a tendency to fall under the eyes…or use a sponge-tip applicator.

You really must try Love Connection to understand why I’m so enamored. MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Duos are available at MAC counters and maccosmetics.com.

Spoiled Pretty will return in two and two. Honestly, it’ll be a little longer than that…but I couldn’t resist.
