My choice of shade surprised me though. I'd thought I wanted a classi chanel red. Gabrielle or Rue de Cambon perhaps. Or why not the famous chameleon nude shade Mademoiselle that looks different on all who use it? But in the end, with Beetrice's help, I bought a perfect shade of pink. The pink I love wearing most days and so will really USE. Creamy, but not frosty, cool but not quite berry, I opted for Legende.
I rather like highly pigmented lippies as you can calibrate the shade precisely. Lightly and blended out for a sheer wash of colour, or full on coverage.
This long lasting formula also smells faintly of roses. Don't worry you won't feel like you have slapped perfume on your lips, it's just enough to be scented like a bouquet of fresh roses across the room. A hint of glamour.
As promised by Chanel, the tube is metallic, weighty and shuts with a satisfyling click. It always feels cool to the touch and makes the experience of applying your lippy nicely luxurious.
I love this lippy and use it regularly. At SGD$44 or RM95 it's not cheap but really, not as expensive as highend lippes can be. I still want that iconic red Chanel lipstick though, I just need an excuse. ;)
