Finding The Perfect Summer Nude | Fleur De Force Mac Lipstick | First Impressions


I am a huge fan of Mac lipsticks and I especially love to wear a ‘my lips but better’ nude lip. I usually wear Mac’s Brave on a day-to-day basis but was keeping my eyes peeled for a warmer nude to take me into the summer months. When I was in London the other week for the F&F Autumn Winter press event, I decided to pop into Selfridges and have a peruse of the Mac Lipstick collection. 


I ended up picking up this beautiful ‘perfect nude’ shade that was not only exactly what I was looking for, but it was created by the beautiful Fleur De Force! Fleur is a hugely successful Blogger and YouTuber and she has had other really exciting collections such as her eyelash launch with Eylure. I think that it is so amazing to see her name on a Mac lipstick and it is so cool how much brands and the general public are giving such amazing exposure to bloggers and influencers. I think it is a sign of even more exciting things to come. 


Colour

Fleur describes the colour of this lipstick as her ‘perfect nude’ and I really agree with her. I usually opt for a nude shade with slightly more pink tones, but I find that this is better suited when my complexion is paler in the cooler months. However, as we are slowly creeping into summer and my skin is beginning to look a little more sun-kissed, I feel like I want an everyday nude to have more brown tones within it. 


Texture

The texture of this product is exactly what I look for in a lipstick. It is soft on the lips and glides easily to create a full look. It feels slightly matte in a way that I don’t feel it will smudge or need reapplying constantly, yet it seems to retain enough moisture so that it isn’t drying on the lips. 


Finish 

I really like the finish of this lipstick. It feels really long lasting in a way that it is easy to wear throughout the day with minimal top-ups.  The product appears slightly highlighted in a way that it catches the light and looks glossy, even though it is not a wet and glossy finish. What I love about this lipstick is that it can be worn with lip balm for a slight pigmentation or can be applied heavily for a full colour finish.


When I bought the lipstick I also received a little note from Fleur herself, which was really sweet, and a Mac makeup sheet that includes all of Fleur’s favourite Mac products to wear with this lipstick.
