While many beauty bloggers are MAC fanatics (Temptalia is the foremost example), I am not. Frankly, the outré presentations for its frequent collections are a turnoff.
That said, I think that MAC's lipsticks are some of the best on the market. I'm craving a few lip colors in MAC's latest collection Cult of Cherry: lipstick in Crème Cerise (sheer yellow taupe) and Mattene lipstick in Kirsch (blackened cranberry), Bing (blackened eggplant), and Chock-ful (blackened brown). The descriptions sound scary, but the shades, as represented on the web site, look beautiful.
Cherries Noir collection from Laura Mercier
UPDATE Laura Mercier has come out with her own collection Cherries Noir.
