The Faerie Whispers collection:

The latest limited edition MAC collection came out in Japan (+ New Zealand and many other countries) on Monday; so I rushed in after work to have a look. When the previews came out last December I was very excited to try the foiled shadows. What is it about the ‘foiling’ that’s so much more appealing than regular eyeshadow?! Also I’m very into the whole idea of a “faerie” collection – I love the magical, ethereal connotations.

The collection contains:

  • 8 metallic, shimmery foiled eyeshadows that can be used wet or dry
  • 4 lipsticks
  • 4 lip glasses
  • 2 blushes
  • 2 face powders/highlighters
  • 2 nailpolishes
  • 2 brushes

My favourites:

I tried them all at the MAC store in Isetan, Shinjuku. I fell in love with the shadows because of their delicious pigmentation, plus they feel so soft and silky. I really wanted the cold pink Feminine Wiles but I decided I should really choose warm colours for once. I bought two warm coppery pinks: Joy Toy (pink copper) and Faerie Fayre (Midton peach teracotta). I know these are expensive but the size and pigmentation make them totally worth it! I also really loved the lighter highlighter, Sparkling Rose. It had a very fine shimmer and the subtle peach seemed really flattering.

Anyway; go out and try some of those shadows!
