If you were lucky enough to be friends with Coco Chanel and part of her inner circle, you may just have had a lipstick shade named after you!
On the 20th March (which also happens to be my birthday), Chanel ROUGE COCO lipstick launches with 24 new shades (29 total).
These will be available in six colour palettes, each one named after Mademoiselle Chanel’s closest companions, her friends, her loves and her muses…
ROUGE COCO is multifaceted lipstick that embodies sensuality, joy and radiance. And let’s be honest, when you whip out a Chanel lipstick with its chic black metal case, you instantly look more glamorous.
The texture of these lippies, that can be worn day or night, is gentle, creamy and melts on the lips, giving them a satiny finish. It also gives the lips a boost of hydration.
The shade selection of ROUGE COCO includes mischievous reds, delicate pinks, nude beige’s, intense plums and fresh oranges, so you can have your pick or take them all!
I got to sample two of my favourite shades from this collection. ROUSSY (426); a tender and vibrant pink and INA (450); a soft yet striking plum.
They are both absolutely gorgeous and love how soft and supple they leave my lips feeling.
