Crazy For Chanel

Friday, 7 March 2014


I popped into Boots for some hair grips and before I knew it I was standing in front of the Chanel counter. How did that happen? Oh Who am I kidding? I could find that counter blindfolded! After ooh-ing and ahh-ing and swatching up a storm I finally settled on the Rouge Coco Shine in "Suspense". A beautiful fuchsia red with shimmer. I am a berry lip kinda girl but this bright fuchsia shade was calling my name. It suits my skin tone beautifully too. Not only is the colour fabulous but the formula of this lippy is ahh-mazing- a soft, creamy offering that is light-weight and feels hydrating on the lips. Winner! Who doesn't love a bit of Chanel eh?

Suspense was released for the Spring 2013 Avant -Premiere de Chanel Collection and was made permanent in the Rouge Coco Shine line which is lucky for me because I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it otherwise. I would describe Suspense as being semi-sheer but build able. This shade lasts a couple of hours on me so not the best staying power however I don't mind whipping out this gorgeous lipstick to reapply makes me feel glamorous, you know? ......Well a girl can dream, right?

I can imagine myself wearing this shade a lot in the warmer months with just tinted moisturizer, a dab of cream blusher and lashings of mascara. Boom. Spring/Summer makeup done.

I love the uber luxe black and gold packaging with the famous logo that will make any girl's heart beat faster. Chanel packaging can't be beat!

Retailing at £24, pricey right? I know, but what can I say? I love me some Chanel! Do I want another one? Hell yes! "Fiction", I'm coming for you.....
