The cherry blossom season is upon us. Yes, this famed season in Japan is already blooming, which usually means sakura-flavored drinks and snacks are out, and so are sakura-themed beauty products.
While we would all love to be in Japan at this very moment, traveling there is on indefinite hold. After all, who wouldn't want to be out and about when the cherry blossoms are in full swing? While we may be stuck at home for the foreseeable future, you can still get into the spring spirit. How so? MAC Cosmetics has got you covered with this limited-edition collection.
Inspired by the cherry blossoms in spring during the night, the beauty giant's capsule collection—aptly called Black Cherry—celebrates the sakura season in full bloom. The collection includes lipsticks, lip blams, blushes, a setting spray, and eyeliner. Its packaging is definitely a standout from all the other cherry blossom beauty products as its design features matte black and pink with sakura blossom motifs. It also features metallic pink trimmings that will immediately catch your eye.
This sakura-inspired spectrum of moody magentas and daytime bursts of blush is designed to take your look whichever way the wind blows.
Super lightweight and easy to use, the hybrid Black Cherry Extra Dimension Blush blends in beautifully into the skin . With two or three swipes, the blush will give you a beautiful prismatic finish that doesn't feel chunky or look shiny. It combines the smoothness of a cream and blendability of a liquid blush. The Extra Dimension Blush features four tantalizing shades: Dilly-Dolly (light pink), Look Don't Touch! (coral apricot), Room to Bloom (warm light apricot), and Under My Plum (plummy pink).
When it comes to lips, you can choose to paint your lips with Black Cherry Matte Lipstick or Black Cherry Glow Play Lip Balm.
The matte lipstick—available in three shades, Dramarama (pinky coral), Bloombox (bright salmon pink), and Moody Bloom (bright yellow red)—features the rich formula MAC Cosmetics lipsticks are known for with high color payoff.
Meanwhile, the Glow Play Lip Balm is a definite must-have for its color and lip care. Kissing your lips with a playful pop of sakura-inspired color, the lip balm smoothes the appearance of lip lines because of its blend of shea butter and mango and jojoba seed oils.
To finish the whole look, Fix+ Cherry Blossom will keep your makeup looking fresh for up to 12 hours. It is infused with vitamins, minerals, green tea, chamomile, caffeine, cucumber without any alcohol. This 4-in-1 setteling spray is a mega-multitasker beauty must-have that will hydrate, prime, set, and refresh your look, all in one fragrant spritz.
With this capsule collection, MAC Cosmetics takes you on a full season of happiness and cherry blossoms. Take a piece of Japan with you and enjoy the nourishing benefits of sakura with the Black Cherry collection.
