What they say:
“Karen wanted the models to look youthful and feminine with a sophisticated twist,” explains Jenna Menard. “So I kept the eye very simple, the cheeks healthy and then went for a strong, vibrant lip. I chose bright coral because it’s less expected than red, and I went to the Clinique lab to create exactly the right shade. It worked with Karen's entire collection as well as all the model's skin tones.”
The lipstick is housed in the signature sturdy ribbed Clinique lipstick case. I always enjoy the sleek silver packaging of Clinique products!
Runway Coral is a gorgeous coral shade and would work wonderfully for all skin tones. It looks almost pink in some lighting but is definitely coral!

Overall: I am LOVING Runway Coral!!!! I adore coral makeup and this is no exception. It is just BEAUTIFUL!! It's more of a Spring shade but still works well in the cooler months. The formula is moisturising, applies smoothly and gives a lovely glossy finish. It's pretty pigmented so a little goes a long way! I find it lasts a good 5 hours on me and because of the pigmentation, it leaves a nice stain on my lips after it's worn off. I would definitely go with Jenna's advice and keep the rest of your look simple so that Runway Coral can pop.
With all bright lippies, it's important to ensure your lips are well exfoliated and smooth as it accentuates dry spots if your lips are dry. Unfortunately Runway Coral is only available online here in Australia and is a limited edition product!
Details: The online exclusive Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral is available now for a limited time online from www.clinique.com.au for $36.
