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!).

Chanel Rouge Noir Holiday 2015 collection

I really loved the theme of the Chanel Holiday 2015 Rouge Noir collection: sparkly, gold and vampy. It was a slight twist on the usual red and gold theme that comes back every Christmas, and I couldn’t be more happy to have been able to browse it.

I was so tempted that I bought a few items, which are pictured above: the three nail polishes and the pencil liner. I was also very tempted by the cream eyeshadow and the lipsticks, but in the end I tried to be a good girl and not pillage the shop like a viking looking for bounty!

Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Or Saffron is quite a mouthfull for what is basically a gold eye liner.

Kiko Milano: Best Friends Forever collection

Kiko Cosmetics Best Friends Forever collection

Kiko Milano has launched a cute as a button limited edition called Best Friends Forever just in time for Valentine’s Day.

As you could expect, this collection has plenty of reds and pinks and hearts to satisfy any cravings for them that you may have had.

The collection has quite a few items, including pencils, lipliners, face powders and mascara, which I did not pick. But let me tell you my opinion on the items that I did pick.

True Love Nailacquer in 03 Red Kiss

True Love Nail Lacquer in 03 Red Kiss: this nailpolish reminded me of the matt sugar ones that I enjoyed so much. It dries onto a matte sand texture but it has pink shimmer that reflects light.

Kiko Nail Lacquer

Kiko Nail Lacquer

I took advantage of a recent sale at Kiko to purchase these three nail polishes. All nail polishes were on sale for 1€ each so I simply did not think about it much.

I’ve been in a teal-aqua-blue loving phase so I ended picking two gorgeous shimmery shades and a basic black.


Kiko Nail Lacquer in 298, 530 and 275

Each nail polish bottle contains 11mL so I couldn’t be happier with the price-quality ratio. On my nails these nail polishes last up to 4 or 5 days whithout chipping (with a coat of Seche Vite as I always do).

It is very easy to be weak and pick up one of these inexpensive nail polishes, specially when the range of shades is so big that you will always find something that will look nice for that do or event.

First purchases from the Essie Professional line

Essie Buy me a cameo, Chinchilly and Lapis of luxury

When I recently saw that at my local store that caters to the beauty industry professionals they were putting a new Essie display, I was immediately interested.

Once I asked the sales assistants, I discovered that this was not the regular Essie line that they would be displaying, but the Essie Professional Application line.

After a bit of google fu, I did find that L’Oreal does have both Essie and Essie Professional as brands. Also, I was told by the girls at the store that these Essie nailpolishes have some differences when it comes to formula, brush, number of shades available and production site when compared to the retail Essie nailpolishes.

New: Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal and Pop Art! Top Coat

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 013 Purple and Pop Art! Top coat

These two are my latest drugstore treasures.

The truth is that the reason I entered the shop was because I was on the hunt for the fabled nude Scandaleyes pencil. But alas, as with the last gazillion visits to the drugstore, the coveted pencil was not there. Of course I managed to return home with some other findings, so the trip was not in vain.
