LC #1 - Chanel's Rouge Coco in Cambon


To kick start my lipstick I thought I'd go with one of my favourites. I'm a big red lipstick lover. I can wear red everyday and never get sick of it. It's classic, it's chic and no matter how I'm feeling it always manages to brighten up my face and make me look just that little bit more lively. The majority of my reds; however, are darker, deeper and all together more sultry. I personally love shades like that for their versatility. They look great used at full strength but can be sheered out if you're not feeling quite as bold that day. Cambon is not one of those shades. It's paler and brighter than most of my reds and it definitely has a hint of pink to it. I especially love this shade for the Summer time (of which I am currently and quite unfortunately stuck within).

I'm also a fan of the Rouge Coco formula. While not my favourite type of lipstick from Chanel, they are comfortable and hydrating to wear. They also have a slight sheen which can be nice but more often than not I'll blot that away with a tissue in favor of a slightly longer wear time. 

In all I don't think it will be much of an effort to stick to this beautiful little tube of confidence for the next week. In fact, it may even be hard to say goodbye.
