MAC A Sprinkle of Magic Lipstick
MAC A Sprinkle of Magic Lipstick

MAC A Sprinkle of Magic Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty orange nude [with a Frost finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner texture than the average Frost finish has, but the thinness seemed to emphasize the natural texture of the lips. The color went on fairly evenly, but I had some color pull into lip lines after two hours of wear. The color lasted for three and a half hours in total, and I found it a bit drying overall. Tom Ford Beauty Skinny Dip (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Supreme Style (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Daddy (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Julianne (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Buxom Coral Confession (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (DC, $36.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NYX Tiara (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Crunch (LE, $5.50) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Marlene (458) (P, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Coral (21) (P, $54.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Guerlain Gems (DC, $58.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dune (02) (LE, $50.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Among the Fireflies Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft mocha [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, rosy tones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with good, even application and a lightly creamy texture. This shade wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating for me. Make Up For Ever C107 (P, $22.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Double Shot (P, $18.50) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Influencer (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay 1993 (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Peacemaker (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Urban Decay 1993 (DC, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Smashbox Safe Word (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Public Display (Lip Color) (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Buff (P, $37.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Colour Pop Ruffle (LE, $5.50) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Hourglass Idealist (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Mocha (P, $18.50) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Pat McGrath Lust Angeles (P, $38.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Tarte Crop Top (P, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.

MAC Gossamer Wing Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty beige with gold pearl [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a milky beige with fine gold shimmer. It had sheer coverage, but it did noticeably lighten my lips. Unfortunately, the lighter color paired with the emollient, Lustre formula made sure the color settled into lip lines. The color lasted an hour and a half on me, and after wearing it twice in a row, it was lightly drying. This would be better as a layering shade, though the shimmer is fine so it may get lost in any thicker lipstick underneath it. Too Faced Shimmering Naked Dolly (LE, $22.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC You've Got It (LE, $18.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Free as a Butterfly (LE, $18.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Take a Spin (41) (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Metalwork (LE, $18.50) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Warm Companion (LE, $18.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) (DC, $37.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Jic (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $18.50) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty David (DC, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). NARS Redemption (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Midsummer Night Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone coral nude [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy texture that is easier to apply once it warms up against the heat of the lips. The texture is thin and pulls into lip lines over time. It lasted for three hours and was lightly drying. Bite Beauty Caramel (P, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Freckletone (P, $18.50) is darker (85% similar). MAC Soft Pout (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Severine (112) (DC, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (DC, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Almost Bare (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Givenchy Beige Caraco (107) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Delectable (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Posh Tone (P, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Cozy Up (LE, $18.50) is darker (95% similar).

I love all 4! This collection is speaking to me on so many levels, I think the last time I’ve been in love with a collection so much was when A Novel Romance collection came out last year… Love love love it!

For obvious reasons, I am loving Among The Fireflies, as these types of shades, even families of shades such as plummy brown, burgundy brown, dark nudes, all call to me. I know that I’m either getting this or a backup of MAC RR lipstick!
I do wish that Gossamer Wing was more intensely shimmery and better pigmented to use as a topper, though. Could’ve been beautiful!

The name of the collection is very pretty.
But I don’t see anything “faerie” in those colours. They are pretty but (boring) wearable and dupable, so far from “faerie”.

Holographic lipsticks (I mean with saturated and real holographic shimmers like those in some Enchanted nail polishes), would be so fun for a faerie theme collection ! But guess that maybe they haven’t found really safe holographic shimmers for the lips (to be eaten) yet.

While I think these are all pretty, and I would have liked to try Among the Fireflies, I will pass on all of them, I really don’t like, or need lip products that settles in the liplines. I don’t need those more noticeable!

Wow, Sprinkle of Magic looks quite different on the lips than in the tube. Grateful for the swatches, I would buy it for the tube color but the lip color is not really up my alley!
