A French woman knows that a lipstick wardrobe is not complete without RED – as a little girl I idolized Diana Vreeland, the Duchess of Windsor and Coco Chanel. They were not only stylish and fashionable, they wore red lipstick. I wore the same shade of red lipstick during my twenties – True Red by Estee Lauder, until it was discontinued.
I had yet to find a red I’m loyal to – until now, This February Chanel unveiled a hydrating creme lip colour, and it’s available in 30 shades. Trying on the different shades of red lipstick I felt like a kid in a candy store, so many beautiful colours.
Speaking with Melissa the Chanel Rep I learned there were 5 popular colours of red lipstick, and a shade for every skin tone.
Paris – Blue red
Cambon – Bright red
Vendome – Orange red
Rivoli- Berry red
Gabrielle – True red
I fell in love with Gabrielle, and paired it with lip pencil #24 - My lips stayed hydrated and the colour lasted through out lunch time.
Some Key Facts about Rouge Coco:
Plant based – delivers long-lasting color and shine
Provides full coverage – available in matte or pearl to soft shimmer
Creamy light weight texture – softens and conditions lips – creating plumper, smoother and a healthier appearance.
I kept looking in the mirror, pleased with the effect of radiance a good red can deliver.
Rouge Coco gets a TEN!
