With pink, coral brights and a mauve added to the mix, the Chanel lip offerings for this years Spring collection were not within my normal "safe" colours, however I had a "moment" and decided that yes perhaps I too could be one of those sporting a bright lip this Spring.
From the 6 shades on offer I went for the Rouge Coco in Triomphe #60
(£24) and the Rouge Allure in Melodieuse #136 (£25).
Triomphe is a
coral with a touch of pink. I find the Rouge Coco formula hit and
miss with some being drying and not applying as evenly as I would like,
unfortunately I found this the case with Triomphe, its a shame as I
really do like this brightening colour.
When I picked up Melodieuse, my head was saying don't be silly that's
far too bright put it down, but alas the heart (which is often bedazzled
by all things pretty, with memories of when I was young and could wear any colour I liked) won out.
I still stand by
Melodieuse being a really pretty colour, but can I wear it full on, well
lets just say when I applied two layers of this my husband said it
looked radio active! However, I do love this bright coral/red
with one coat and blotted down. Its has a satin
finish with a light texture, smooth application and even, full
Overall I think these are both fun brights to wake up the complexion,
but my pick would be Melodieuse for its superior texture/application.
I bought these from Boots
