MAC Cult of Cherry Spiced Chocolate quad - finally!

A couple of years ago, I was more interested in building up my perm MAC collection and didn't pay Limited Edition (LE) collections any mind whatsoever. When MAC released Cult of Cherry in August 2008, I didn't even know what was in the collection, that's how uninterested I was.

It wasn't until I'd acquired a vast collection, that I began to take a look at past LE releases and started to lust after the Spiced Chocolate quad that was one of three released in Cult of Cherry. My desire for it heightened, after seeing a friend create looks with it on a number of occasions. I don't really do quads but I think this is a gorgeous one to own that looks pretty damn hot on my skintone. Additionally, the shades it's made up of, don't duplicate any that I already own - which is always a plus, given how much make up I actually own.

After finding it on Love Make Up, I ummed and ahhed over its purchase for months but finally bit the bullet and ordered it last week (albeit a few pounds over the RRP) and I love it!

The quad consists of:

Nanogold -  Sheer yellow pink with pink pearl (frost)

Brash -  Frosty reddish copper (veluxe pearl)

Spiced Chocolate - Dirty deep reddish brown (matte)

Sweet Chestnut: - Frosted cranberry (frost)

(no flash)

My Mum would adore this, so I think that's my Mothers Day present sorted next month! Don't you just love that feeling of accomplishment you get when you manage to bag a LE item you've been lusting after forever? It's the little things that make me happy! ;-)

Which LE items are you yearning for?

I have been wanting Spiced Chocolate Quad for a very long time!! I hope to purchase it soon so I can give it love!

Christina Tal-Qurru said...

The colors are beauitful! Is that palette still available?

Mocha Mish Mash said...

Spiced Chocolate was on my leeming list, but after seeing I would have to pay around $75.00 for the quad, it quickly came off the list--lol! I do wish I would have picked up the Barbie e/s and also Young Punk e/s from Style Black though...I snoozed on those :(

SilhouetteScreams said...

I think this is one of the most well coordinated palettes MAC has ever done. Usually there's like 3 good shades and then 1 random one *cough* Tempting Quad *cough* that I know I'll never use.

Nooberella said...

please do a FOTD using this! xxx
