MAC might be completely amazing at bright and bold makeup products (especially lips!) but they do up some seriously gorgeous, demure and wearable collections. My current favorites are from the MAC Faerie Whispers Collection – particularly those Foiled Shadows!
Foiled Shadow ($20.00 // Bloomingdale’s). Eight, limited edition shades were released and I have two to share with you today in Feminine Wiles (light pearly pink) and Faerie Fayre (mid-tone peach terracotta). I found this eye shadow formula to be super easy to work with and blend in the shades that I tried – very pigmented and blendable. They lasted all day when worn over a primer. You can also wear these shadows damp for a more opaque and metallic finish (with these two I feel like it’s not necessary, though).
Cheek Pollen Blush ($22.00 // Nordstrom). Two blushes were released and the one I have to share with you today is Cheek Pollen (warm nude, satin). SO pretty. It’s perfect for warm skin tones, is nicely pigmented and applies smoothly. I found the blush to be very easy to blend into the skin and it lasted throughout the day.
Just Superb Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 // Nordstrom). Of the four Cremesheen Glasses released I have one to share with you in Just Superb (dirty neutral pink). Just Superb is mostly sheer with a slight pink tint. It’s one of those shades you can throw on your lips while you’re literally running (or walking) out the door. I also love to wear this shade over my favorite winter mauve shades to add some gloss. The Cremesheen formula is fabulous for those that aren’t a fan of a super sticky gloss finish (it’s a little sticky, but not Lipglass level) but that want a big more staying power than those glosses with more slip. If you’re not eating or drinking you’ll get around 2 hours or so of wear-time.
The swatches below are done dry and on bare skin (no primers):
I’m wearing the shadows in this Instagram photo – it’s not a closed eye pic but it’s incredibly zoomed in so you can get an idea of how pretty they are on (Faerie Fayre is on the lid and Feminine Wiles is the best inner corner shade)!
