Runway Coral by Clinique and Jenna Menard

The start of spring always heralds the search for a new lipstick that will see me through the (hopefully) sunny seasons approaching.  Something bright, happy and screaming of holiday, that’s the job spec for any contenders. 

This one is seriously vying to get the job this year.  

Clinique announced the appointment of their new Global Colour Artist Jenna Menard, and to kick things off, she launched this Limited Edition perfect summer shade, called Long Last Runway Coral. 

 It launches TODAY, 12th April, exclusively online, at

If you flick your mind back to the S/S 12 fashion shows, you’ll remember that coral was THE lip colour  for the season. In fact, this shade was inspired by the Karen Walker S/S12 runway show. While perfect for tanned and fair skin alike, corals are notoriously hard to get right. This little beauty is definitely on the pink side of coral – no garish oranges overpowering your face here. It looks slightly different on everyone and suits every skin tone. 

Amazing colour payoff, intensely moisturising and incredibly lustrous on the lips.  After four hours of wear, and two cups of green tea, my lips still feel soft and hydrated, and the colour is just as fresh as when I applied. The Long Last formula also “treats lips to hours of creamy, comfortable coverage that won’t dry out, feather, crease or cake, thanks to advanced moisturising ingredients and pigments that cling to lips for an incredibly smooth even colour that stays true and stays put”, say Clinique, and I’d have to say I agree with them. 

Runway Coral, your CV is impeccable. When can you start? Today? Perfect! 

PS huge sorry about the photos and lack of editing. I’m writing while I’m on holiday because I don’t want you to miss out. When I get back, I’ll update with better ( my own) photos. Hope this will suffice in the meantime. xXx
