I couldn’t wait. I had to dig right into my Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick today and although detractors might say that red lipsticks should be kept for the night, I say bring it on whatever the time of day!
Yesterday’s swatches were a little dark so I took it out into natural light today (and its still a little dark :P ) and I give you a lip swatch of Chanel Rouge Coco Paris (I know you’re looking out for this one Yani!).
The lip swatch was done with just 1 swipe of Rouge Coco Paris straight from the tube. Yes its crazy pigmented and I love it! Its blue-based and to my rather discerning eye, not fuchsia at all. On me, its a straight red. It also lasts and does not slip around plus it feels weightless on my lips, does not dry out my lips, does not bleed and feather and has no scent. Everything one can look for in a lipstick :D I want more and I know I will get more once it gets here.
I actually wore this to work with a simple Parisian inspired FOTD as you see below :)
Well, ok the only thing “Parisian” about it is the beret and the fact I’m all in black and no, I did not wear the beret out – it was a prop hehe…
With the Rouge Coco lipstick so strong on my lips, I went simple on the rest of my face. If you are interested, here’s what I used.
Cheeks: MAC Porcelain Pink MSF
Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco Paris No. 22
Spritz on some Dior Miss Dior Cherie perfume and I was good to go!
I’m glad I wore Paris on my lips today. I came into the office a little late and since this morning, its just all gone downhill from here. Sigh…
Nothing better than a brilliant red lippie to boost up the flagging spirit!
Viva la Paris!
