Clinique is delighted to partner for the twelfth year running with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity for the KISS IT BETTER appeal – raising money to fund research into the causes and treatment of childhood cancer.

KISS IT BETTER is the brainchild of Carmel Allen whose daughter Josephine was treated at the hospital for neuroblastoma – a type of cancer. After many months spent at the hospital, and struggling to reconcile life as a Beauty Editor, Carmel decided that she wanted to help and devised the KISS IT BETTER appeal.

“Kiss it Better is something every parent says and does when their child is sick or injured. I wanted to turn Josephine’s experience into something positive and to help make a difference to the lives of children with cancer everywhere. Jojo is an inspiration to me, she feels as passionately about helping other children as I do. The survival rates have improved even during the 12 years of Kiss it Better and I know they can improve even more” says Carmel.

Clinique will be launching a limited edition LONG LAST SOFT MATTE LIPSTICK in the best-selling shades Matte Magenta and Matte Petal to raise money for the appeal throughout February. Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick is matte yet moist, comfortable, non-drying and stain-free making it the perfect date night lipstick.

The lipstick will be housed in a beautifully designed barrel with 100% of the RRP being donated to the Kiss it Better appeal, and when you purchase two lip products you will receive a beautiful makeup bag with the matching unique design*. .

In addition, this year £2 from every lip product sold throughout the month of February will be donated to the Kiss It Better appeal,

Available throughout the month of February exclusively in House of Fraser stores nationwide and online at and for just £15!
