Candy Pink Chanel.

Saturday, 22 March 2014
I have a special place in my heart for Chanel. Anything Chanel. I don't know if it's the beautiful packaging, the classiness I feel when I wear it, or the pure fashion name of it all. I just love it. I bought my first Chanel lipstick on my birthday and have to admit I was slightly disappointed - I think I went for the wrong colour. So this time I picked up another colour I was more likely to wear frequently at duty free prices at the airport.

I chose from the Rouge Allure Velvet range, because I liked the consistency more. It looks matte, but feels more moisturising. Less sleek and slippery than Mac's Velvet range, but definitely not matte enough to be called Matte, if this makes sense.

The colour I chose was a hot pink, La Diva 44. Hot pink is my thing. It's always my go-to, everyday colour. Favourites at the moment are Pink Noveau and Lickable by Mac, and Fushia Flash by Maybelline. Reds are for classier outfits, or special occasions. Nude's are for never IMO. I have no time for boring lips.

The packaging is perfection, you press the button at the bottom in and then the lipstick pops out. It looks classy as anything. If Audrey Hepburn was a lipstick package, this would be it. My only qualm is the actual lipstick amount is about half of what you get in a Mac lippie, but it costs £25 a pop. I'd rather spend the £15 on a Mac one and get double the product if I'm honest. But for a one-off, luxury purchase for those days when you need a little pick-me-up, this is a good option. Just pick you colour wisely!

What's your everyday lip colour?
