The sunny days are becoming few and far between and the ever darker mornings signal the approach of Autumn. I love the colours of typical Autumnal collections but often they don't work for my colouring. Chanel's Les Automnales, however, seems to have incorporated a good array of colours, so whilst there is the expected earthy, rusty and khaki elements we also have some more neutrals and reds in the mix.
hands immediately made a grab for the two Coco Shines (both £25 each), the shades are
quite interesting, they almost look metallic in the tube. Melancolie #99
is a rusty bronze beige with gold shimmer/micro glitter
Téméraire #112 is a
deep ruby red with subtle golden shimmer (this is one of the "colour"
lipshines, as opposed to the "sheer" lipshines so it's more pigmented).
The lipsticks feel lightweight and comfortable to wear, Melancolie has
more slip to it and has a shorter wear (around 2 hours on me) whereas
Téméraire leaves a stain and wears for around 4 hours.
One thing I would mention
is that after amassing a lot of Coco Shines I found that they turned
after about a year, I therefore limit how many I buy now but these two
shades are interesting enough that I am happy to have bought them,
Melancolie is great for that soft warm lip and Téméraire is a
striking vampy shade.
I bought these from Boots.
