I must admit I have walked past MAC’s Faerie Whispers collection a few times now without even feeling the pull that I normally get from the MAC counter. There was just something about it, that just didn’t draw me in. I did wander over there eventually though (lets face it I could never resist for too long) and fell a bit in love with Among The Fireflies Lipstick. Just goes to show you that even if some items shown in a collection are not your cup of tea, its worth having a proper look as sometimes there are hidden treasures inside too.

Among The Fireflies was the only shade that was actually still in stock, which made a nice change as I usually go for the shades which have sold out months before. The finish of this lipstick is Cremesheen, which is the finish I find myself going for when I want an everyday lipstick. It is just so easy to apply and usually fades to give the lips a tinted colour.

This lipstick seemed to bleed quite a bit on me, which is a shame as Cremesheen’s are normally pretty spot on with the formula. I only had this on a few minutes before I took the photo, so a lip pencil would definitely be needed to stop this.

Among The Fireflies is a light mocha shade with a slight hint of pink. I would say it is a bit like a bricky Terracotta shade. I know it sounds silly to compare a lipstick to a brick, but imagine that shade mixed with brown and that is the colour. Sometimes, I feel as though you cannot fault my colour comparison skills!

This isn’t the normal colour that I would go for but I needed a new everyday nude/pinky shade and this instantly stood out. The colour is very similar to Double Shot, but I find it a lot more wearable as it leans a bit more to the red.

The Faerie Whispers collection is indeed very pretty, but like I said it just didn’t have that stand out factor for me. I think the colours are slightly too pale for my liking. This lipstick was definitely the stand out item for me though and I am so glad I wandered over to the MAC counter and purchased.
