Mac x Robert Lee Morris is the newest collaboration between the brand and the talented jewelry maker. The packaging of the collection reflects Robert Lee Morris’s style which is fashion meets art. Honestly, when I first opened the pieces from the collection, I was amazed by the beautiful and unique packaging.
The products from the collection are like pieces of art. Especially the compact blushes, they look and feel on another level of luxury.
The Mac x Robert Lee Morris Collection features six lipsticks, powder blushes, setting powders and amazing looking brushes (both in single and a brush roll set). They are housed in matte golden and black packaging that is stunning.
I received some pieces from the collection that I’m happy to say are as good as they look.
First up is the Powder Blush in Peach which is described as bright clean gold. This is more of a highlighter rather than a blush. It’s a beautiful champagne gold shade that is very pigmented and appears almost like a sheen on the skin. The powder is soft but not powdery and blends nicely on the skin without looking too over the top. You can build it up to a blinding highlighter which will still appear perfect on the skin, without any glitter or specks of shimmer showing.
The other blush shade that I received is in the shade Rhubarb. It’s described as a deep maroon shade with a shimmer finish. It’s a beautiful light berry shade with golden shimmer. Since the powders are super pigmented you have to be careful with this shade. One dab with the brush gets you enough pigment for both cheeks. The blush has a luminous finish and doesn’t emphasize any pores or imperfections on the skin. When blended it almost shows warm orange tones which I love wearing in fall.

I also received three of the six available lipstick shades. The lipsticks in the line come in a Mattene finish which is a moisturizing matte lipstick that provides a creamier application. I would say that these remind me of a satin finish lipsticks, meaning they have great pigment but still are comfortable to wear on the lips.
Lychee is the lightest shade in the line. It’s a soft nude pink shade that it actually too light for my medium skin tone. It has good pigmentation and applies evenly on the lips.
Persimmon is described as a warm peach nude. On me, the lipstick pulls as a peach orange shade. It has great pigmentation and even coverage and it is super comfortable to wear.
Pumpkin is my favorite shade from the three. It’s a beautiful warm pink with mauve undertones. These are the kind of shades I prefer to wear on day to day basis during the colder months. I think this shade will suit literally everyone.

Bottom line, I love the Mac x Robert Lee Morris Collection. The packaging is really the selling point for me. It’s one of the most unique and beautiful packaging that Mac has released. The pieces look and feel like art.
If you are getting anything from the line, I would say, go for one of the powder blushes. The packaging is very unique but you also get a great formula.
