FOTD: MAC Cosmetics Faerie Whispers collection

Sparkle, and shimmer, and shine! That’s what the MAC Faerie Whispers collection is all about. From ultra-glittery shadows to beautiful shimmery face powders, this collection is for all of you who aren’t afraid of a little sparkle.

MAC Cosmetics Faerie Whispers Foiled Eyeshadow Sweet Illusion

Sweet Illusion Foiled Eyeshadow ($24 CAD) is a warm silver glitter.

I swept Dusty Purple (MAC) in the crease and covered my entire lid, crease and brow bone with Sweet Illusion.

I packed it on pretty heavy in the centre of the lid too and it left a mirror-like almost wet finish. The fallout with this isn’t bad at all and I applied it using a spritz of Fix+ on my brush. These remind me a lot of the Extra Dimension formula only a bit looser.

MAC Cosmetics Faerie Whispers Beauty Powder Pearl Sunshine

Pearl Sunshine Beauty Powder ($26 CAD) is a soft peach with pink shimmer blush or highlight powder.

On my skintone, Pearl Sunshine is more of a blush shade and leans quite warm. I topped my cheekbones with a little Sweet Illusion too (applied dry), for an extra punch of highlight.

MAC Cosmetics Faerie Whispers Cremesheen Glass Enchanter

Enchanter Cremesheen Glass ($24 CAD) is a copper brownish red with gold reflects.

MAC Cosmetics Faerie Whispers Cremesheen Glass Enchanter review

This shade has a ton of shimmer in it and is very shiny.

Like all Cremesheens, it leaves a hint of colour behind and a lot of gold shimmer. This isn’t as tacky as the regular lipglass formula.

Here I applied Sweet Illusion dry so you can see how soft you can make it. Pearl Sunshine is a 2x swatch and it shows up quite peacy in this light (it often shifts to a pinker tone in the sun).

And here’s everything all together! I added Benefit’s Beyond Blue mascara for a little extra pop of colour on my eyes. I was a bit skeptical of the Foiled shadow but I really love the versatility and actually plan on losing Sweet Illusion more as a subtle silver highlight shade.

The MAC Faerie Whispers collection launches online Dec 23 and hits store shelves Dec 26.

  • I was realllly hoping the Beauty Powder would be similar to the old loose Silver Dusk, but it seems not. Shoot!

  • All three products are gorgeous on you, what a soft romantic look! I actually really like that gloss shade.
