Lipstick - Chanel Rouge Coco in Destinee

Before I became a make up artist, I would had never worn lipstick. To me, lipsticks are one of those cosmetic items that older (or rather, more mature) women always seem to have in their handbag. And it's always on they wore when they were about 20! My mum genuinely has one that she's probably had since before I was born! 

However, the more I got into make up, the more I loved lipsticks. Now, I could quite happily spend hours swatching lipsticks. I've been known to be in MAC for a good couple of hours, swatching lots and lots of lipsticks on my hand. The end result is quite hilarious and I look a bit mental. But, I always leave with a lipstick I know both I and my clients are going to love. 

The first lipstick I ever bought was a very, very red lipstick from Avon. I loved it! It took me a while to feel brave enough to wear it out on the town and I've never looked back since.

So, I wanted to do a review on my current favourite lipstick, Chanel Rouge Coco in Destinee....

Now, it does look very dark in the above photo but the colour that transfers onto your lip is completely different! Which is why it's always so important to never trust the actual colour of the lipstick but always swatch it on your hand. One of my relatives works for Chanel so I spent some time with her going through Chanel's spring 2012 collection. I'm still debating on whether to purchase the new Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation but I couldn't leave the counter without buying this lipstick in Destinee. Luckily, there was only one of these left which shows just how popular this colour is.

It's a plummish, red colour and I find it a very grown up colour to wear.

It retails at about £22 and is definitely worth the money. It is long lasting and can easily be worn day or night! Overall, I was very impressed and will definitely be re-purchasing this lipstick!
