Hi lovely readers! In an attempt to constantly revamp my blog, BeautySpot, I decided to add a bi-weekly new series. I will call this series "Tried and True" and it will feature a product that I purchased more than 6 months ago (that is a life time for a beauty addict!) that based on great experience I see myself loving for the long haul. I'm aiming to feature a variety of high and low end as well as beauty and hair products. What do you guys think?

The first product I wanted to feature is Chanel's Rouge Coco lipstick in shade Cambon. I purchased this lipstick when the Rouge Coco's first launched mid February. I love the Rouge Coco formula as it's hydrating on my lips yet it lasts 5-6 hours without fading. The smell of roses is also very faint compared to Rouge Allure formula which is a good thing in my book. Cambon is a favourite of mine coz it's a red but a "young girl" kinda red. It has definite pink tones to it and just brightens my face (for reference, I wear MAC studio fix in NW25 and MUFE HD in shade 118). You can also wear this shade of red during the day without it being too much. For my full initial review, please see here.

Here are some pics:

Do you guys have this shade? What's your take on Chanel's Rouge Coco formula?

    I think everyone needs this sort of raspberry red shade, totally day/work appropriate without being over the top.

    I've never tried Chanel lipsticks..but it's always tempting. :]
