Whenever I see Alex backstage during show season, I can guarantee you, she’s the one Beauty Editor who will reliably sniff out anything new! Whether it’s taped up, hidden on the makeup table or anywhere else, her eagle eye for anything new and revolutionary is unprecedented and she’ll definitely spot it and want to make sure she’s first in line for the exclusive!
A few months back however, the tables turned, and I spied Alex furiously topping up her trademark nude lip look with a MAC shade I didn’t recognise…! On closer inspection, of what at that point, was a worn down, very well used lab sample, Alex admitted to me that she had been out to the MAC labs and collaborated with the brand to create her very own perfect nude shade, based on the natural colour of her own lips. Needless to say, I’ve been waiting to get my hands on one ever since!
A gorgeous, fleshy pink shade, Alex’s lipstick has a sheer texture to it and is super flattering and dewy on the lips. It is a warm, pink-y nude shade – so one that will suit pretty much everyone, and it’s so easy to wear – perfect for this season’s nude trend.
The good news is, you can get your hands on one too – but move fast as it’s a limited edition shade and I’m sure it’s going to sell out pretty quickly!
