Say hello to the new MAC Lipsticks from Alessandra Steinherr and Fleur de Force

Alessandra and Fleur

I arrived home from work today to the make-up collaboration I've been excited to get my hands on all year!

You may have seen online that MAC have teamed up with 10 worldwide influencers to make their own lipsticks, 2 of which are from the UK. Lucky for me, our UK MAC girls are two that I absolutely love: Glamour Beauty Director Alessandra Steinherr, and vlogger Fleur de Force.

When I first heard that Alex and Fleur were our girls, I thought that MAC had chosen really well. Alex is a legendary staple within the beauty industry, innately understanding what looks great on women and how women want simple but glamorous make-up solutions. Fleur’s career has varied from blogs, vlogs and even writing her own books and she captures the best of fashion, beauty and lifestyle in her content, understanding what the everyday girl wants and needs in her make-up bag. Together, they’ve made two classic nudes that you’re going to love.

(Just a little tip: in any photos where I’ve put them together, you’ll find Alessandra’s lipstick on the left and Fleur’s on the right.)

In case you didn’t already know, I’m ever so slightly obsessed with Alessandra.

I just love her. She is always just as lovely when I see her as she comes across on her photos, Q&A’s and social, and I really trust her recommendations. She came to Birmingham last summer and recommended everything for her guests from La Mer moisturiser to Soap and Glory illuminator; I love that she gives every brand the same attention and that she’ll tell you what she is loving whether it costs pennies or the earth.

The Alessandra lipstick is a sheer fleshy pink in a lustre finish, giving a balmy gloss with medium coverage. I feel like this lipstick will sit really well on everyone because it is quite lip-like in colour, giving the illusion of your lips but better when worn.

(Oh em gee! I just googled the collab to see if I could find any actual quotes from Alessandra about what her inspirations were and I found this one on Glamour where she actually described it as “your lips but better” in the piece!)

Alex’s lipstick is going into Harvey Nichols so keep an eye on their website for her PA tour dates (I haven’t heard anything confirmed yet, but knowing Alex and how much she loves to meet her readers, I’d imagine she’ll be touring for sure).

I still remember the first time I went for breakfast with Fleur four years ago, and I’ve loved watching her go from strength to strength ever since.

Fleur is one of my favourite bloggers and I love when I get to spend time with her. She’s someone that you will see at a launch and despite both living and breathing beauty for most of the time, we’ll end up spending the whole time talking about pets. Ha. I know how much Fleur values her readers and I think she’s chosen something so classic to ensure that everyone will get to enjoy her new arrival.

Fleur’s lipstick is a classic, creamy nude, a really universal shade that you’ll wear with everything. A cool nude in a cremesheen finish, this gives you the comfort of a cream finish and a polished opaque finish. Use alone for an everyday look or team with smoky eyes to finish your make-up look without overpowering it.

Fleur’s lipstick is going into Selfridges, so again keep an eye on their website to see if any PA dates will be announced.

Both of these lipsticks will launch on 8th May on maccosmetics.co.uk and then 10th May in their respective department stores.

A huge congratulations to both Alex and Fleur – I am so delighted for you both and will be wearing my two new shades all summer long!
