On Friday 12th May I finally got the chance to meet Fleur De Force for the launch of her MAC Lipstick in Selfridges.
When I heard Fleur would be collaborating on a MAC lipstick, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Fleur de Force Cremesheen Lipstick is beautiful, easy to wear everyday pink nude. When I heard it would be a nude I was worried, as many pale skinned girls like myself do, nudes can make me look very washed out and unflattering. But luckily this nude has the perfect amount of pink and now lives in my handbag. I feel rather lucky to have my hands on one after it sold out online and in store for MAC, Selfridges and Browne Thomas in day
I quickly snapped up one of the 70 tickets to the event being held by MAC at Selfridges in the Trafford Centre Manchester. We were greeted with beautiful cocktails, a fancier than average wristband and some very yummy macaroons. Before the interview, we got the chance to work with a MAC artist and go through the current products and get colour matched.
We took our seats and Fleur along with Dominic, Senior Artist for MAC and Stephanie Power, Communications & Fashion Relations Director at MAC Cosmetics. They talked about Fleur’s first reactions to hearing about the collaboration, how she chose the colour of the lipstick and some of her favourite MAC products. Dominic showed on two models the versatility of some of the products, I was really drawn to the eye shadow ‘Sumptuous Olive’ something I wouldn’t have thought to go for, but it looked beautiful! After a quick Q&A with the audience it was time for the meet and greet, phone at the ready!
This is where I turned fan girl very quickly! I was at the back of the line, and then got to the front and on the stage with Fleur. I couldn’t tell you what I said; it was something probably really stupid! But after watcher her videos on a screen for around 4 years, it was surreal… but she was so lovely! Still now typing this I am having a flashback to the jittery mess I was that night, what a loser! Either was it was so nice to meet her and I will always admire her.
(have you ever seen a more cheesy smile?)
I had the best night, even with my moment of cheesy fan girl mind blank! The lipstick is beautiful and if you can get your hands on it, you’ll love it too! Have you tried it?
