Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 50 La Romanesque


It is perfectly seasonable since we are still in April (besides today it is coat weather, again.), but I can't help but feel that I am terribly behind in writing about a piece from the Chanel Rêverie Parisienne collection (spring 2015). That is kind of insane, but we are already seeing the summer collections everywhere.

I am going through a matte lipstick phase right now (other than "the warm orange-y lipstick phase") and recently have bought a more than a few both from drugstores and higher-ends. Being equally fond of drugstore lipsticks in general, I secretly hoped that my affordable acquisitions would be as good as Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Romanesque. Sadly but justifiably, the Chanel turned out to be superior in this case.

Tatcha Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick

After a long wait, the most gorgeous red lipstick made its way home to me.
Tatcha Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick is rather imperial. It is perfect inside and out.
Since this is a limited edition and my understanding is that only a small number of them were produced, you might want to grab one before it's too late. It is still available online.

It is $55 a piece (a very heavy piece or art, by the way), but let me just say this is much nicer than any high-end lipstick I've ever experienced. I didn't even have to justify my purchase. This lipstick makes me happy.

Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour 416 Coco

So I bought a piece from the reformulated Chanel Rouge Coco range, and I went the other way this time : Orange.
I tend to go for a safe pinkish color when it comes to a higher-end lippie purchase, but this spring I am coveting all things coral and orange. Maybe it is the unbelievably long winter that still seems to be ongoing. I never thought I'd be talking about weather so much, but there isn't any sign of green or flowers although we're now well into April. I need some warmth!

Well, Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour Coco is warm, refined, and edgy.
I really like it and even reach for it quite often that I myself am happily surprised.

Lancome Baume In Love Urban Ballet


Remember when I was complaining that L'Oreal Balm Pop isn't balmy enough? So I went ahead and ordered a Lancôme Baume In Love hoping to fix the iffy situation. In a sane world, a tinted lip balm should be sheer, balmy, and tender on lips, don't you think?
Let's just say Lancôme Baume In Love has brought the balance back to my cosmetic world and to my lips, and I love it.
