Last week, I showed you some pieces from the Chanel Collection Libre Holiday 2017 collection. I told you then, that while some of the items there were noteworthy, the true stars of the collection were the lipsticks. They were so noteworthy, I felt they deserved their very own post!
The full name of the Chanel Holiday 2017 collection is Collection Libre Numéros Rouges. The stars, that are thrust to the forefront and centre, are a selection of Chanel’s popular Rouge Allure lipsticks, in a festive, limited edition red lacquered case. They usually come in black, as you will see here, but the red is beautiful! Rouge Allure lipsticks are the ones that you have to depress, and the tube will pop up for you to pull out, as I’ve demonstrated above. It is a very sleek packaging, as there are no protruding bits at all.
This Christmas, Chanel aims to help you find your perfect red lip, by presenting you with 4 shades in 2 textures, from which to pick. I however, unfortunately only have 3 to show you. But I did stop by the Chanel boutique, before I received these, and had a little play, so I’ll share some swatches of all 4 below. In many ways, this focus on red for the lips reminds me of Lucia Pica’s first Chanel collection, Le Rouge. I’m guessing red is her favourite colour to work with then 😀
