Matte lipstick is probably all over your Instagram feed right now, and though everyone loves the look, it's not exactly easy to wear. With that shine-free finish, you usually get a dry feel and a flaky texture that needs constant touch-ups. So when Clinique invited me to test out its new formula in Marrakech, Morocco, one of the hottest places in the northern hemisphere, I was surprised. Even with new Clinique Colour Pro makeup artist Matin Maulawizada on hand to give me some tips, I was convinced I would be sweating it off in minutes. Still, I'm always up for a challenge, so I put this lipstick through its paces during a long day of meetings, tutorials, shopping, and partying, taking selfies along the way. You might be surprised at the results — I know I was!
