My First Chanel Lip…

4 Comments


I was in Montréal for work and if you have never been there, you need to know that women there looks effortlessly styled and polished from head to toe. They really have that natural French fashion flare, and seem to be able to look more put together in a moment than if I decided to take all day to style myself. Feeling the glam of the city, I  was wearing a long lasting red liquid lipstick (which will remain unnamed ). That and the late November weather, my lips were feeling like the Sahara, cracked, and looking terrible in general. I just HAD to have red lips, being in Montreal , so I decided I should seek out a new, more moisturizing one. RougeCoco2015_collection

I chose to entertain buying Chanel because I was in a French city and that is just how my beauty logic works. I am a big supporter of lower priced lipstick, but I was feeling it was time to see what the hype is all about when it comes to luxury cosmetics. Don’t get me wrong, this was not my first luxury purchase, or even my first luxury lipstick… I had become a tad bit frugal in this arena as there are so many fabulous lower end lipsticks, and I had never experienced a luxury lipstick that I felt was worthy of the high price tag.

Approaching the counter at the new Pharmaprix galerieBEAUTÉ in the popular Saint Catherine Ouest 2015 - 1area, the Chanel advisor looked like she was a stand – in for a Chanel makeup photo shoot with her stylish rich brown hair, deep brown eyes and flawless, yet naturally glowing makeup.  I told her about my dry, parched lips and desire for something more forgiving in a stunning red. She steered me towards Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour  in 444 Gabrielle. She informed me that this is the shade Kiera Knightley is wearing in the ads. SOLD! (I am such an easy mark.)

The shade is absolutely gorgeous, and I would encourage ANYONE looking for a red lip to check this one out. It would look stunning on any skin tone, and is such a classic shade. The colour doesn’t appear quite the same on me as it does on Ms. Knightley, but I think it is just perfect.

It was my last day in Montréal when I bought this lipstick and I swear I am not lying when I say FIVE different people complimented me on it at the airport. This is a obviously a winner!

Foxes, what do you think of luxury beauty products? Are they worth the investment? I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
