I have a new favourite lip­stick. This is some­thing I find my­self say­ing fre­quently, not be­cause I’m fickle, you un­der­stand, but be­cause beauty brands are con­stantly up­ping their game and launch­ing even bet­ter ones. Re­cently there’s been a surge in im­pres­sive matte for­mu­la­tions, for ex­am­ple, that, un­like the matte lip­sticks of old, gen­uinely don’t feel dry and un­com­fort­able on your lips (try Clar­ins Joli Rouge Vel­vet, £22). Now Clin­ique has bowled me over with its Dra­mat­i­cally Dif­fer­ent Lip­stick, £20.50, which has a flat­ter­ing, creamy, semi-matte fin­ish. There’s a core of hy­drat­ing in­gre­di­ents through the mid­dle of the colour plus tiny spheres that fill in lines, so the over­all ef­fect is smoother lips that look a lit­tle plumper in whichever of the 50 shades you choose. I’ve fallen for one called Canoo­dle (a pink­ish, slightly brown, beigey nude) and will be wear­ing it ev­ery day – un­til the next Big Thing comes along!
