Mac – Around the world in 10 shades!

It’s set to be a really exciting start to 2017 with MAC Cosmetics, who’ll be sailing across the world in 10 shades to collaborate with some of the most talented beauty gurus from across the globe.

Stepping away from its usual high-profile celebrity collaborations, the brand is taking advantage of the current social media climate by working with some of today’s biggest bloggers, to create their very own limited edition lipsticks.

Bloggers have an absolutely huge influence on consumers across the world, so it was only a matter of time before a collaboration like this took place! The launch is super fresh and unique, representing a completely diverse range of lipsticks to suit the trends from each bloggers home country. Also, included in the beauty movement is US male makeup artist Gabriel Zamora – flying the flag for us beauty boys, which is amazing to see!

The 9 other bloggers to be collaborating with MAC are UK-Based Fleur De Force and Beauty Director at Glamour UK, Alessandra Steinherr; Laura Lee from the US; Caroline Daur from Germany; Australia’s Nikkia Joy, The Real Fouz from Israel, France’s Enjoy Phoenix; Canadian YouTuber Samantha Ravndahl and Vogue Brasil’s Vic Ceridono.

Just last week, the International influencers travelled to Toronto, Canada, where the MAC brand was founded and went behind the scenes of the MAC product development lab. The bloggers had the opportunity to meet the lab team, learned how to create the formulas and had a play with all of the ingredients, before getting to work on their very own lipsticks! It's like the makeup equivalent of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! 


Now whilst the full product details are being kept firmly under lock and key, we haven’t got too long to wait as this info will be released in March, ready for the worldwide launch in April.

In the meantime, let’s meet the team!
