My First Chanel!


Rouge Coco Shine in 55 Romance to be exact!

I have wanted one of these lipsticks for quite some time now! Every time I have walked passed them I have stopped to look but ultimately walked away without one after convincing myself it would be a totally unnecessary purchase. After all...I don't think I can say honestly that I need a Chanel lipstick!

Last week I was walking through John Lewis on my way home and I stopped to have a look. This time I finally did it! I bought one :) After looking at the all the colours I like I decided on Romance. It is such a pretty pink. It is bright but not garish so is perfect for day time if your not someone who would normally choose a bright lip.

The packaging reads "Hydrating Sheer Lipshine, Water-light Feel" but I was still a little surprised but the texture of this lipstick. It is a much thinner consistency than I was expecting. I thought it would be creamy like most lipsticks but it wasn't and I agree with the description that it has a water like feel. This is what gives it its lovely shine, almost gloss like when you have put it on. It is also very hydrating as it states. I have worn it with and without lip balm and my lips haven't felt as dry as the sometimes can with normal lipsticks.

The staying power is quite good for a thinner textured lip product. When not eating or drinking I have had it on for around two hours before having to reapply. When I am eating and drinking however I find that it doesn't last too long.

Overall I am really happy with the lipstick. It is lovely to wear and the fact that it is hydrating is great for this time of year, anything to help with dry lips is good to me :)

Thank you for reading, hope you are all having a happy Monday
