I have a weakness for Chanel lip products and every once in a while indulge in a couple of them. They're obviously pricier than most brands out there so it's definitely not an everyday indulgence. I love Chanel's Rouge Coco, Rouge Allure and Rouge Allure Lacques and their Glossimers are also a favourite of mine. In fact glossimers first started my love for Chanel a couple of years ago.

I had a facial appointment at my local Chanel counter and picked up two lip products after:

The first one is Rouge Allure in Vertige. I would call Vertige a true red coral but not too coral to be orangey in tone. It's brighter and bolder than Orchidee RC. On my pigmented red lips, this still shows up very true to the colour of the tube. Rouge Allure lipsticks apply smoothly and are very comfortable on the lips. I get 5-6 hours of wear out of them and I also absolutely love the packaging. Vertige is my 4th RA l/s! Here's a couple of pics:

I also wanted to get a new glossimer to go with Vertige. My MA picked Meteore which I probably wouldn't looked at if she wasn't there. But I loooooved it once I swatched it on my hand and then on my lips on top of Vertige RA. Meteore is a difficult shade to describe, I would call it a multi-tonal rose but somehow it also brings out the coral in Vertige. Glossimers are generally very sparkly and are best paired with lipsticks. They also photograph amazingly well.

Here are some swatches on hand for you guys. First the two lippies separate and then layered:

Hauled any Chanel (or any makeup) lately? Please share in comments. Do you have any of these two products?
