A massive load of people asked for a video using Clinique’s new Matte Mandarin lipstick and so here it is in full, glorious technicolor. It was actually the entire “look” that I wore in my How to Style Greasy and Limp Hair video that people seemed to want and so I trawled back through the footage and tried to copy the makeup exactly. It’s not exact, as it turns out, but it’s close enough. Airbrushed skin, bright orange-red lips and the softest of sculpting and shimmer on the eyelids.
A note on the Dior Airflash foundation: I have been using this loads. Almost every day. It’s odd, because it never feels like there’s anything going on and then I look at my lips and they are totally beige! So it really is just the finest, lightest foundation. I have taken to using it in the mornings when I’m in a rush because it takes all of three seconds to apply. A three second spritz and then a couple of bish-bash-boshes with a foundation brush just to make sure it’s blended in around the eyes and the sides of the nose – total time, approximately ten to twenty seconds. Anyway, watch the video and you’ll see it in action. If you want to read the review then that’s here; you can buy it online at Escentual.com or FeelUnique.com
