Mac Faerie Whispers Lipstick in A Sprinkle of Magic £15.50
I don’t normally buy in to a lot of the limited edition collections that high end beauty brands come out with, especially Mac as they usually happen so often they never really seem limited. But when Faerie Whispers got released a few weeks ago I had a little look through like I usually do and fell in love with ‘A Sprinkle of Magic’ one of the new lipsticks (Plus the words Faerie and Magic totally drew me in!)
Despite the fact that I do not need a new lipstick and I had not seen it in flesh (swatches online aside) I decided to take the plunge and make a purchase. I justified it by saying it was a birthday present to myself which incidentally is what I told myself for quite a few purchases throughout January.
The colour is described as a ‘dirty orange nude’ which is exactly what it is but true to it’s namesake it has an added hint of sparkle. It isn’t particularly dark though for an orange/ nude, if anything it is quite a thin lipstick and because it’s one of the frosted lipsticks the finish is quite muted rather than creamy or matte like. The colour goes on evenly but even with the addition of a lip primer the little bit of colour you do get doesn’t last all that long.
Now I’m not disappointed that I ordered the lipstick as it is a pretty shiny shade which true to Mac’s style isn’t drying on my lips, but I kind of wish I had gone for one of the darker shades in the collection.
