Let me guess: you're one of those people who buys beauty products based as much on how the packaging will look in your bedroom, as on the quality of the product? Yep - me too. So today's announcement that one of my interior faves Jonathan Adler has teamed up with beauty failsafe Clinique to create a limited edition of fabulously packaged make-up is excellent news for both our faces AND our dressing tables.
“My collection for Clinique is for women who want to crank up their glamour factor to eleven,” says the man of the moment. And he's not wrong: the packaging features the geometric patterns he's famous for, with metallics and pops of bright colour (including plenty of pink).
And if it feels spot on for the summer, that’s no coincidence – Jonathan says the collection has been inspired by some of his favourite travel destinations: Capri, Palm Beach and Santorini. It’s alright for some; I’ll be lucky to get to Legoland these school holidays as all our cash is going into our new mortgage. But at least my lips will think they’re on holiday:
“The collection feels like a vacation. It’s crisp, it’s colourful, it’s luminous, it’s bright and it’s like a little getaway to the most glamorous place you’ve ever imagined,”says Jonathan. Sunshine, swimming pools and champagne in a lipstick? I’m sold.
