Hope your feeling good as spring is now approaching. Speaking of which; I just made a number of purchases from The Printemps Precieux de Chanel collection 2013. I love what i bought and review, photo’s and swatches are on my website http://www.mandymcmulli7.wix.com/mirifique-beauty. Check them out.
Now, everyone who has ever read my posts and also know me, will say WHAT! Reason being, I adore Chanel lipsticks and still maintain that they are the best out there; however, on this occasion, i was quite disappointed with the shades. Captivante was quite lovely (for Fall), Envoûtante was too dark for my skin tone, Précieuse is too pale, as is Fantasque. The two Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks, La Favorite and L’Eclatante were just far too bright, neon in fact. Not impressed!
Anyway, I had seen Anne Hathaway at the Golden Globe Awards looking really great. The lipstick she was wearing was beautiful on her, very natural and classy looking while still lighting up her face. I tweeted her Makeup Artist @Chanel and told her how great she had made Anne look. (She was chuffed haha).
The makeup Anne was wearing on that evening was Chanel and i thought i would try out the lipstick she was wearing, which was no 91 Séduisante in the Rouge Allure Luminous Intense range released last October in UK.
Why hadn’t i spotted this one before? It is so lovely on me and a lot more fitting a shade for spring than the ones Chanel have just released; that’s my opinion anyway. A warm soft pink, it is quite opaque without any golden sparkles but still shiny and soft on the lips.It is also very moisturising. Séduisante is a must have for the spring/summer season for any one who suits pink lipstick. Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks are 3.5gm/£25.00 and have the beautiful, classy packaging with the spring action pop top.
One last thing; congratulations to Anne on winning best supporting actress for Les Misérables at the BAFTAS and at The Oscars.
There you have it. What colour lipsticks are your favourites for spring and summer?
Have a great week everyone and will be seeing you all very soon 😉
