Hey lovelies! Hubby surprised me after my surgery with one of my most wished for items, Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in Coromandel. He hid it in the basement and got me to find it as a test to how good my eyes were now. I did find it in 10 minutes, even though we live in a bungalow so our basement is huge! Isn't this the most gorgeous warm red you've ever seen? I love it, if possible, even more than Chanel Dragon *gasps*

    I bought this one over Dragon because I love the more orangey red and was surprised that not many people loved it as much as Dragon! :O I heart this lipstick and I am so glad you like it too! The colour looks stunning on you.

    P.S What a great hubby <3

    Ricquetta - Thanks my dear :) I tend to stick to blue reds but was so surprised on how wearable and great this shade was.
