Model Joan Smalls lands lipstick range with Estée Lauder


PUERTO RICAN supermodel Joan Smalls is teaming up with cosmetics giant Estée Lauder to create her own lipstick collection.

Smalls’ daring purple lip at last year’s Met Gala sparked a social media frenzy that inspired ladies across the globe to take to Instagram with selfies showing off their violet pouts.

“I was like, ‘This is so cool. People are really reacting to it in a very positive way,’” she told Vogue.

Smalls has since inked a deal with Estée Lauder for a matte lipstick collection.

“I’m very hands-on when I’m involved with something,” she said of the collaboration.
