Hey beauties! I know I haven't posted in eternity it seems like. I have been going through some rough personal period and I have not fully recovered. I am better every day though....there was a time last week that I thought maybe I will sleep and not wake up ever again. Compared to that tough time I'm MUCH better, I even decided to start blogging again. Please send me some good vibes, I can definitely use them now.
So what better way to re-start posting than showing some Chanel swatches? Chanel Rouge Allure Laques to be precise. I recall telling you that these were only being discontinued in the US and not Canada (as I was told by my Chanel SA). But apparently I had been misinformed and they are actually being discontinued here too :( I currently have five of these babies and I will get the rest ASAP. You guys need to check out this amazing formula before it's too late....there are ABSOLUTELY NO better lipsticks than these!
Check out my babies all lined up. These are all part of the perm line with the exception of 707 (Empire) which was holiday 2012 edition:
75 (Dragon) - perfect blue red, hands down my fave red ever. This comes from a red lip addict!
72 (Coromandel) - gorgeous orange red, I adore this for making an impact in the winter
707 (Empire) - light warm pink, one of those colours that look good on everyone and go with everything
78 (Phoenix) - medium strawberry pink, this is THE perfect pink, has equal balance of cool and warm tones
73 (Imperial) - I would describe this as a dusty dark rose, surprisingly flattering on my light medium skintone.
Aaaaaand my swatches for your viewing pleasure - left to right Imperial, Coromandel, Dragon, Phoenix, Empire.
Do you guys own any of the Chanel Rouge Allure Laques? Which one is your fave?
