I’m slowly working my way through Chanel’s Holiday 2011 collection, you’ll have to forgive me as I’ve been pretty slack with going through a bunch of holiday 2011 related products, which means January may be filled with them. Which may not be such a bad thing, as most of the holiday collections are now slowly going on sale to make way for Spring 2012 😀 So if I review something you like, you might be able to grab it for a lower price! *am wishing the same could have been said for me….*
I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this particular lipstick, for one I really love the colour. It’s very wearable and it’s convinced me that I need to invest in more similar colours, as I tend to always go for nude beige shades (Estee Lauder’s Nude Almond is my current go to lipstick), but now I’m thinking I may need to switch to more Rosey Pink shades.
But aside from the colour (which actually contains tiny red / hot pink micro shimmers), I think the lipstick itself is pretty average. It isn’t terribly moisturising nor creamy (which are two big personal musts for me). However because of it’s stickier / drier nature it did last on the lips longer than most of my other lipsticks. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a drying lipstick at all, it’s just not as moisturising as say the Coco Shine lipsticks… but I would recommend using a lip balm before applying this lipstick if you want to ensure your lips don’t dry out.
The package is kinda cute, it has this push down / pop up feature. It doesn’t improve usability, nor does it make it any more difficult. It’s just a nice twist to the usual 🙂 I purchased this lipstick for $32US from Neimus Marcus via a mail forwarding service 🙂
