I’m a huge fan of Chanel’s new Rouge Coco range. The colours (named after Coco Chanel’s inspirational friends, lovers, and artists) are much more versatile and the formulation is very lip-friendly as each tube is enriched with mimosa, jojoba and sunflower plant butters. There’s also a hydraboost complex which gives it a sort of plumping effect.
I’ve been wearing Antoinette for quite a few months now and it’s become one of my favourite lippies of all time – dare I say it shares the top spot with Stila Beso for its wearability.
Antoinette: A warm, coppery halfway tone between brown and red which I adore. Speckled with teeny bits of shimmery stuff which makes your lips look glossier than usual. Colour starts sheer but it’s easily buildable, so you can go darker as you wish.
Finish: Satiny with a bit of gloss
Application: Creamy and very easy to glide.
Retouch: 1-2 times: two strokes in the morning, two extra strokes after afternoon tea. Two extra strokes if you’re going out, too.
