This is my most expensive and probably most loved lipstick that have. I decided to treat myself on my through the airport back in the summer. I chose the colour Fougueuse which is a gorgeous cool toned bright pink.
The packaging is so pretty and sleek. The casing of the lipstick is a glossy black with a gold top, which is the base of the lipstick. To release the lipstick from the casing simply press the gold at the top and it pops up. This part of the casing is completely gold and just looks perfect. The word Chanel is carved into the lipstick itself which is a touch I really like as it seems that only higher end lipstick make an effort to make the actual lipstick look pretty.
I find that Fouguese glides on easily although I find that you need to make sure that you have scrubbed your lips before applying as is has a tendency to highlight any dry areas. It can be applied lightly just to create a sheen or built up to be quite opaque. I find that this lipstick lasts around 4-5 hours before needing to be re-applied. If your eating or drinking then it may need to be touched up a little sooner.
I really think that this colour is perfect for anytime of year, it’ll look gorgeous in the Spring and Summer but I also featured it in my Top 5 Winter Lipsticks post as I think it really helps to brighten up darker outfits, and I think a bright lip looks great in Winter.
This was my first Chanel lipstick but I think I can promise you that it will not be my last, I currently have my eye on the Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lipsticks, although I think it might take me while to settle on which shade to buy. All of the Chanel lipsticks just look amazing and I really wish that I could just buy them all!
Have you tried any Chanel lipsticks? If you have which do you like the best and would you recommend any in particular?
