Remember the MET Gala moment last year when supermodel Joan Smalls wowed us not only with her Vera Wang dress but also her daring purple pout? Well, inspired by the positive reaction her lips stirred, Joan has teamed up with Estee Lauder for a line of matte lipstick available in 12 eye-popping shades.
Announcing the news on her Instagram page, Smalls said: “I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been working on a lipstick collection with @esteelauder! They are all matt and so chic,” accompanied by a picture of her wearing a deep scarlet lipstick. “Here is one of my favourite shades and you guys get to pick the name! Which one do you think is the best? Unattainable, Commanding, Unstoppable.”

“I love how matte lipsticks don’t look too overpowering or in-your-face, even if the color is bright,” said Smalls, who has been one of Estée Lauder’s campaign faces since 2010, alongside Constance Jablonski, Liu Wen and – most recently – Stephanie Seymour.by
