Get Pouty : Chanel’s Coco Rouge in Liaison

June 9, 2013

Being part of my May favorites, it wouldn’t be fair for the Chanel lipstick to not have an individual post. As you may have read in my previous post or seen on Instagram, my lovely sister came back to Dubai with a little surprise for me: an extremely classy black and gold lipstick bullet in the shade Liaison.

Lets discuss packaging. I’m sure we can all agree that Chanel is one of those brand with the most chic packaging. Who doesn’t love a good Chanel product? The black and gold tube along with the engraved “Chanel” on the lipstick, both, immediately make me feel like the queen of Sheba.

The product glides on smoothly and evenly onto the lips, leaving a satin sheen finish and a divine creamy, hydrating texture. It actually feels quite light on the lips. Liaison is a warm soft mid-toned pink, great for spring and summer (and all year round, really). It’s definitely a pinky “my lips but better” type of shade. It tends to go on a bit sheer compared to other Chanel lipsticks that I have tried in the past. This is one of the main reasons why I fell in love with it in the first place, I guess. If it were really opaque, my lips would look like Nicky Minaj’s, whereas they look more like Audrey Hepburn‘s lips in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

I love this lipstick even more because:

a) the actual lipstick has a bit of a fragrance to it, the one that every Chanel product has. And…
b) it makes my eyes look greener. I’m sold!

As I am extremely daring when it comes to lipstick colors *caugh*sarcastic much?*caugh*, Liaison works puuurfectly for me. I’m sure this lippy will find a very comfortable spot in my handbag throughout this summer.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
