Hillary Clinton's Debate lipstick and Essie's E! Live From the Red Carpet

Custom makeup blends seem to be on the rise. Hillary Clinton's appearance is much scrutinised stateside (and the scrutiny slightly bigoted... you don't see anyone commenting on how close together Bush's eyes are or how old John McCain looks. The serious political commentators save that sort of englightened commentating for female politicans), and her makeup artist has revealed a few of Hill's on-camera tricks, including the name of her custom blended lipstick, Debate (by Kriss Soterion). Essie's just launched a custom nail colour created for E! Entertainment Television in the states too. Think E!, politics and makeup have little to do with each other? We beg to differ. All three champion artifice.
