A few weeks back, I told you to be patient – that MAC’s Cult of Cherry wouldn’t be available until September. Well, that’s not exactly true…anymore. The release date was pushed up because trigger happy MAC couldn’t keep the consumers and the cosmetics apart any longer.
Head on over to maccosmetics.com, where the collection is now available for purchase. But check out my review before filling up your virtual shopping cart.
Fall for luscious. The Cult of Cherry inspired Overrich, eight pigments that keep you de-lovely and delicious as ever. Oxidized, rich-metal hues are a cakewalk to apply, for eyes, face and all the sweet spots. These Overrich pigments satisfy an appetite for glamour.
PIGMENT: Pigment is a highly concentrated loose color powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Pigment comes in an excellent range of colors. Use to create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Pigment does not streak or cake, is easy to blend and long-lasting.
