A New Lipstick Love / OOTD


Yesterday was a good day.  Firstly because my significant other returned from his trip to Malta (missed him!) and secondly because he came home armed with a little tiny Clinique box...





I have been lusting after this lipstick ever since the range hit the shelves a few weeks ago.  I'd seen them featured on many blogs and totally fell for the 'Matte Mandarin' shade.  I'm not good with most bright shades but I love a lipstick with an orangey tinge.  There's something about this lipstick that just suits long hot Summer days and a tan! 


I've worn it today (obviously! as if I was going to let a new lipstick sit in my make up stash for a day without wearing it!!) and I'm already a huge fan of this little baby!


Application is good, it goes on smoothly and evenly and it's easy to get a nice clean line without too much fuss.  The colour pay off is absolutely fantastic and it feels as though you're wearing nothing at all on your lips! It lasts incredibly well on the lips and when it does start to wear off slightly it does so evenly.  It pairs very nicely with the Dior palette I reviewed a few weeks ago should any of you be interested :)




Does anyone think the above looks like a school photo? Not sure how that happened! 

Whilst we're at it and celebrating my new Clinique lipstick (ha!) why not throw in an OOTD?!  We took the dog for a walk this evening and I wore my new Alexander Wang Tshirt (The Outnet special!)    I really like grey paired with orange at the moment with a bit of white thrown in! 



T-shirt - Alexander Wang - get it HERE

Shorts - Karen Millen - ancient!!!

Flip Flops - Valentino Rockstud

Sunglasses - Rayban extra large aviators 

Hope you've had a great week and those of you in the UAE are looking forward to your lie in tomorrow!
