“Live out your fairy tale with charmed hues inspired by the secret, wondrous world of fairies. Skin looks soft and gentle in feathery pinks and pearl-lit nudes. Light up eyes with luminous wet or dry shades of new Foiled Shadows.”
It’s been a while since MAC launched their – Faerie Whispers Collection!
I thought I’d do a simple swatch post for you lovelies on their foiled eyeshadow range & iridescent pressed powders ( highlighters)
What’s a foiled eyeshadow?
Eyeshadows that can be used wet to give you a foil like finish that is highly intense & opaque!
What MAC claims:
- Can be used wet/dry
- Lasts for 13 hours
I’d most def have to agree on the usage part of this product!
The swatch picture that I’ve uploaded above are after two swipes! (Used dry)
What I’ve noticed is when I use fix plus with these shadows they’re so strong! (I tried Magic In Your Eyes)
But let’s be honest, MAC hasn’t stepped up their game or anything like that w the launch of these babies!
The only thing different I the appearance of the eyeshadow once you open the case, a funky pattern!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them per say,
- They so last for a long time!
- They are blend able, good quality
- Using is wet is a better option
But, isn’t that what you would expect from a high end brand?
I find the Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows much more affordable & w a better color payoff!
MAC’s IRIDESCENT POWDER:
Mac had relaunche their two powders-
- Pearl Sunshine
- Sparkling Rose
These can be use all over for a glow or dewy finish.
They also form a very subtle highlight!
- The quality is perf & blending is easy!
- Eyeshadows – ₹1560/-
- Iridescent Powder- ₹1800/-
Would I recommend these?
I don’t think I’d be purchasing any more from this collection, simply because I don’t find anything new or the necessity to! Usually any makeup product compels me to buy it, no matter what!
Sadly, this didn’t !
If you’re new in the market for foiled eyeshadows, I don’t think I’d recommend them, but, you should def go try em out at the store to see if you disagree to what I have to say, cause this wasn’t a win-win collection for me!
