Every spring we see MAC launch a blossom themed collection, and the MAC Black Cherry Collection is this year’s Sakura collection, which has initially launched in the Far East, however it’s now available in the US too right here. It’s easily the prettiest collection we’ve seen from MAC in a long time.
“Spring Night Sakura-Annual Sakura Limited Series Spring cherry blossoms flying in the sky un”der the cold night star screen, mysterious and cool black X romantic tender powder is about to hit the most beautiful gift this spring!
The full range includes fashion professional lipstick, water jelly lip balm, ultra laser blush, FIX + vitality water spray before makeup, lip cream before makeup and 24H ultra-fine eyeliner make you the most beautiful scenery this spring!“
Whenever MAC launch a collection which includes special edition packaging, it’s always instantly more popular, and the MAC Black Cherry Collection features the most amazing metallic pink packaging, with a black and pink Sakura Blossom design.
Everything looks beautiful, and most of the products have a matte finish to the packaging, with blossom cascading over the packaging. I so want to get my hands on a few pieces, as it’s my favourite packaging design MAC have created thus far.
Even the promotional images are stunning, with the model wearing a barely there makeup look with a healthy flush of colour on the cheeks, liquid liner and glossy tinted lips.
It looks like the perfect makeup look for Spring, and let’s take a look at the products within the MAC Black Cherry Collection…
There are five shades in total, and they each come in a metallic pink compact, with a black lacquered effect design on the lid with pastel coloured blossom falling down.
Right now, there’s only three shades available website, so I don’t know if the other two shades have already sold out, or they’re perhaps exclusive to other Asian countries.
The four shades we know so far are;
- Look Don’t Touch! – coral apricot peach
- Room To Boom – light apricot peach
- Under My Plum – plum
- Dilly Dolly – blue toned pink
I want at least two of the MAC Black Cherry Collection blushers, as they look incredible. I love the MAC Extra Dimension Blushers anyway, so I know I like the formula, but peach blushers are my favourite, so I’d love to get Look Don’t Touch! and Room To Boom at the very least.
Next up in the MAC Black Cherry Collection is the MAC Brushstroke 24-Hour Liquid Eyeliner Pen which could maybe be seen as one of the more boring pieces in the collection, but it still has special edition packaging.
It has black packaging, with metallic pink writing and a metallic pink lid. If you’ve never tried this liner before, it’s a flexible nib liquid eyeliner pen which is perfect for creating winged eyeliner looks.
Next up in the MAC Black Cherry Collection are the lip products! There are two different lip products within this collection; Lipsticks and Aqua Jelly Lip Balms, with multiple shades available in each formula, and they both feature the stunning Sakura style packaging design.
The three lipsticks within the MAC Black Cherry Collection are quite similar, in that they’re bright pinks and peaches, which complement the shades of the blushes within the collection. They’re all very pretty, and will be undoubtedly be popular with their special edition blossom packaging.
MAC Floral Coral – coral pink
MAC Pinking of You – milky pink
MAC Blossoms or Bust – bright pink
MAC Fleur Welcome – pinky red
The MAC Aqua Jelly Glow Play Lip Balms are said to have a jelly formula, which is moisturizing on the lips, leaving them looking polishes and supple. They appear to have a sheerer finish compared to the lipsticks within the MAC Black Cherry Collection, and are the perfect, lightweight balmy lip colour choice for spring.
The MAC Black Cherry Spring 2021 collection also includes a special edition of the iconic MAC Fix+ with the same blossom packaging, some wispy false lashes and a special edition of the MAC Prep + Prime Lip Lipstick Base.
Wow I’m in love with this collection. It’s absolutely beautiful, and is perfectly executed from the packaging, the products themselves, the shade names and shades. You can now find the whole collection right here..
