If like me, you are into the blogging community you might know that Mac have taken the step and launched their first collaboration with beauty influencers from around the globe. Mac is widely known for its collaborations but to this date they have been mainly collaborating with celebrities and designers. Taking the step to collaborate with influencers I think it’s a really smart move. Most of us feel more identified with influencers and trust their opinions a bit more.
Mac has given the opportunity to ten different influencers from around the world to create their own lipstick shade to launch in their own countries. Beauty blogger/youtuber Fleur de Force and Glamour UK beauty editor Alessandra Steinherr have been the lucky two to be chosen to represent the UK in this global project.

I have to admit I am a huge admirer of Fleur de Force and I was really excited when I heard she was going to collaborate with Mac, so of course when the lipsticks launched on the 10th May I knew I had to buy them.

Fleur´s lipstick can be described as beige nude and it comes in cremesheen finish.
I have to admit cremesheen is my favourite lipstick finish from Mac because of its creamy formula and good pigmentation. The actual shade is a bit too beige for me, its not a shade I would normally wear but I have to admit that it’s the perfect nude. If your into nude lipstick you will probably love this one. At the moment I am layering it on top of Charlotte Tilbury´s lip liner in pillow talk and I love the end result.

Alessandra decided to go for a neutral pink in a lustre finish. Whilst lustre isn’t my favourite finish I have to admit that Alessandra´s choice will flatter a wider range of skin tones. The lustre finish has a slight glossy finish and a sheer pigmentation there for it is much easier to wear. The actual shade of the lipstick is gorgeous, I think Alessandra did an amazing job at designing the lipstick.
