I’ve been trying to pull off some sort of a proper red lip look for at least a couple of years now.
I tested several lipsticks, so many of them, all in different shades of reds. To be honest, it never worked. I felt like a clown or at least I felt like the whole world is looking at my mouth. It never made me feel comfortable so I always gave it up and went back to my lip glosses. After a while, I try again and again, and always break.
And then a small miracle happened (let’s keep proportions balanced – it’s just a lipstick) and I discovered Chanel lipsticks. Textures and packaging are two major advantages here, but the strongest advantage to me is the accuracy in colors.
This requires a short explanation: I’m a royal pain when it comes to colors. When I look for red, I mean red only. No touches of pink, orange or anything “interesting”. No! Just red please. And when you pick up a color from Chanel you can count on it – it’s exactly the color you meant to find.
For now, I’m in love with #31. It’s called Cambon and it’s definitely my favorite right now. Here it is:
I hope you’ll find your one too!
P.S. a moment of gratefulness – thank you dear iPad for allowing me to blog with you. Never underestimate your devices. x
