This Rouge Coco lipstick in Chintz lurked around my wishlist for a long time, but I made it mine last time I passed through airport duty free. Five years ago if you told me I'd one day fork out over £20 on a lipstick you would have been met with hysterical laughter, but such is the lure of Chanel and the madness of a beauty blogger.
Being so pale I struggle with nude toned lipsticks - MAC Creme d'Nude looks comical, and totally freaky on me. Chintz is a peachy rose nude with a hint of golden shimmer (hello plumping effect!) which is the ideal choice to pair with dark smoky eyes or bright cheeks - I'm loving statement cheeks at the moment. On darker skin tones it would show up a bit more of a pale nude pink, so I think it's one of those great all-round lipsticks. If you're looking to make your first Chanel lippy purchase this is a great option. I chose it over Boy which for me seemed a little too dark.
The texture is smooth and creamy and the wear time is a couple of hours, but it doesn't do very well if you eat or drink during that time.
I picked mine up for just over £20 at the airport, but you can get it at Boots or most department stores for £24.
