MAC Cult of Cherry did not disappoint. I love almost everything in the collection — the Lipglasses and Lipsticks, the quads, blushes and Kirsh Mattene. The Lipglasses are my favorites.
The only products I’m not crazy about are the other Mattene shades — Bing, Chock-Ful and Rapturous — and the Nail Lacquers. I think the Mattenes look interesting and pretty, but ultimately I feel like they’re too dark for my lips. To make them wearable, I’d have to pop on a lighter lipgloss, for sure.
I dig the Nail Lacquers, too, but similar shades are available for less. Sally Hansen’s Night Divinity ($6) is a dead ringer for MAC’s Silverstruck, and I think Sally’s Alchemy ($6) resembles MAC’s Illegal Purple.
