MAC Faerie Whispers: Spelldazzling, Cheek Pollen and A Sprinkle of Magic

MAC Faerie Whispers haul

In my recent visit to the local MAC store I simply could not resist the beautiful Faerie Whispers collection, so here I am sharing my thoughts and some images of some of the products that I picked up.

The MAC Faerie Whispers collection had quite a few products in it, featuring many neutral shades and shimmery formulas. All in all, very flattering although perhaps quite dupable as well.

I don’t usually pay much attention to the nail polishes by MAC, but could you have resisted this one? (If you did, then you are stronger than me!).

While it is true that I sucumbed to the Fluidlines very quickly and with disastrous results (for my wallet), it is also true that I also grabbed a couple other things from the Mac is Beauty collection. Here are the powder products that came home with me.

Kiko Free Spirit Lips and Cheeks

Kiko Free Spirit Lips and Cheeks in 01 Hearty Peach and 04 Typical Dahlia

 

Let me introduce you to my picks from Kiko’s Modern Tribes collection.

Although there were some seriously nice offerings (go to Kiko’s website and drool over the powders’ packaging!) I choose to try two of their Free Spirit Lips and Cheeks pencils as I had yet to try one of these multipurpose type of pencils.

They have six shades available, including a nice red, but I opted for the more neutral or natural shades. I usually go for the bright colours so I thought that a change would be nice.

The pencils are 8,90€ each and contain 4,5 g of product. Also, inside each box comes a jumbo pencil sharpener, which I thought was a nice touch on their part.

Loving the Powerpoint eye pencils plus a blogger’s favourite

IMG_1483

Those that know me can confirm that I have some obsessive tendencies. If I like a book, song or an eye pencil I will find myself wanting to have other books by the same author, songs by the same singer and eye pencils in the same formula.

So it will not surprise you that after having loved the Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Buried Treasure that I was introduced to in a MAC Technique session a year ago, I found myself itching to get my hands on some more Powerpoint Eye Pencils.

Also, for a while there it seemed that all the blogosphere was talking about this permanent little gem that is the Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul, I am mostly blaming Karen though, so of course it too had to come home with me.

This second post on my recent epic haul contains the face powders I got at the MAC Pro Store.

In general, the shades exclusive to the Pro stores are brighter or less common than those found in normal stores or counters, so I definitely took advantage of the chance to check them out in person!

Spotlight on: my MAC Mineralize blushes

MAC Mineralize blushes

MAC’s Mineralize blushes are a magpies dream! They are pigmented and reflect light in a gorgeous way, so of course I have bought a few of them over time.

The only disadvantage that they had was that I didn’t use them very frequently because they used to hid in my drawer. Now that they have been depoted (onto a Dome Z-palette) I expect that they will be used much more and that some other Mineralize blush might join them!
