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.
The 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.
Tempting Eye Shadow Quad
Next to Nothing: Sheer yellow beige with pink pearl (frost)
Tempting: Rich coco (lustre)
Sharp: Frosty bright yellow gold (satin)
Dark Edge: Dirty chocolate brown (satin)
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.
