clinique’s latest lippie is inspired by the makeup look that global colour artist, jenna menard, created for karen walker’s spring 2012 runway show. the look featured a hot lip pop complemented by healthy, peach cheeks and understated eyes (plus, that killer mustard manicure).
the runway-to-real-world shade created for all of us at-home addicts is lush, and vibrant, like summer in a tube. i’m loving that it’s far less expected than red or even this season’s it color, tangerine. this coral is completely perfect. it looks gorgeous with a tan, but isn’t shocking on fair tones, meaning it can work for all of us. the formula is one we’ve come to know and love from clinique: soft, buttery with lots of shine and pretty pigment. the best part, though, might be the price tag, because $15 gets you one of my favorite things to come off the runways for spring.
now mark your calendars, because clinique long last lipstick in runway coral lands online and at the counters in may!
