While we live in money-conscious times, we all deserve a spoil now and again. And which brand says “spoil” and “luxury” more than the iconic CHANEL?
I definitely don’t own as much CHANEL as I would like to 😉 But these are the top three lipsticks in my collection that I think would be great options to consider if you were looking to treat yourself. I have based this post on the shades that I think are most flattering across a broad range of skin tones, as well as the wearability and longevity of the lipstick.
CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Blush in 420 Burning Berry – R545
I have only had this liquid lipstick in the Summer months and I am DYING for Autumn and Winter so I can rock this baby properly! This range was launched in early-2018 as CHANEL’s latest innovation; a lip AND cheek gel with a slight plumping effect.
The range comes in six delectable shades and as mentioned above, 420 Burning Berry is a divine chocolate berry with unique dual applicator. However, I don’t use this as a cheek tint as I cannot perfectly pull off purple cheeks just yet. And lastly, the scent of the lipstick is GORGEOUS.
CHANEL Rogue Hydrabase Creme Lipstick – R610
Now this is a ‘Rayne’ colour if I ever saw one. This is a super wearable shade that I am happy to carry around in my handbag in every season of the year. It is a lovely middle-ground finish between creamy and matte which feels super comfortable on the lips. The lipstick lasts for a couple of hours, significantly longer than my usual “drugstore” picks, and this is what makes the splurge on the product worthwhile!
CHANEL Rouge Allure Ink in 152 Choquant – R615
Choquant. Choquant. I just adore the shade name of this lippy! Okay, I am probably mispronouncing it but let’s ignore that. You can see from the images that this is just a luxury sample size but I couldn’t NOT include it in this list. I absolutely LOVE it.
These Allure Ink’s are incredibly pigmented. Incredibly so, and my next luxury beauty purchase will be either Amoureux or Vibrante from the same line. The formula is weightless and you barley know you have product on your lips. There is also no need to spend fifteen minutes furiously exfoliating your lips prior to application like you would with other liquid lipsticks!
What did you think of my top 3 round-up? Do you have any CHANEL recommendations that I need to add to my lust-have list?
