Hope you're all having a nice weekend so far? I kind of wish the sun was still out though, as it's been lovely all week in work. I've had a pretty up and down week and I was hoping to get a post up a little sooner, but I'm sure you lovelies will understand! I always do my very best to keep a positive mind set whatever is going on and I know my little old blog will always give me something to smile about, especially when I get to interact with my amazing readers. I'm going to be talking about my favourite topic today.. can any of you guess? It's no secret that I'm a little obsessed by lipsticks, particularly the ones embossed with a beautiful double 'C' logo. So I thought I would go ahead and review one of the beautiful new shades 'Adrienne' which has also been requested by quite a few of my readers. I hope you enjoy this review lovelies and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. If you're looking for a more direct response then you can also use my social media icons just to the right hand side of my blog :)
The Chanel 'Rouge Coco' range is one of the brand's best selling formulations, which has recently been reformulated with 29 new shades. I have a few lipsticks with the old formulation, so I was pretty excited to try out the new 'Ultra Hydrating' formula from Chanel. The shade Adrienne is part of 'Understated Nude' section of the new line and it's safe to say it's a real beauty. All of the 29 new shades are named after Coco's Muses, family members, friends and also artists that she loved. I really like it when brands go that mile by putting real history into their branding and products, especially as Coco Chanel is SO iconic. Adrienne would best be described as a 'Apricot nude' and it's genuinely one of the nicest nudes I've had in my collection since my beloved Rouge Coco Shine in the shade 'Evasion'. Damn.. I wish that shade hadn't been discontinued :(. Adrienne has a hint of pink with warm apricot undertones, which make it a very flattering nude for a lot of skin tones. It's finish is spectacular and I love the way it gives a gentle luminosity to the lips, which also helps to make them look a little fuller too. The consistency is light and creamy and kind of reminds me of the Rouge Coco Shine formula, which of course is also super hydrating! From what I've heard this is one of the shades from the new formulation that everyone is talking about and I can totally see why. In comparison to the older formula these new lipsticks are definitely far more hydrating and to be honest I don't even bother thinking about a lip balm, which is extremely unusual for me. I suffer with dry, cracked and quite painful lips a lot of the year, but these lipsticks seem to do everything! I actually think this may become my all time favourite formulation, but I've got my eye on a few new hippies before I make my decision. I also have 'Cecile' which is another new addition, so I will be sure to review that shade within the next two weeks ( Spoiler Alert: It's another beauty )
So far I've tried two shades from the 2015 Rouge Coco's and both of them are fabulous. Chanel have done a great job at improving the formula, as the previous line had a few 'hit/miss' shades in terms of pay off and consistency. The only negatives I can think of in terms of recommending this lipstick is the fact that it is super creamy (not a bad thing) but the tendency with such hydrating formula's is that you use them up quicker and they don't tend to hang around as long on your lips. The price point is of course pretty high too at £26, but I would say it's worth it if your looking for a beautiful new lipstick. However, if you asked me to recommend you a high end lipstick, I honestly think the new 2015 Rouge Coco's are the place to start! The formulation, shade range, colour payoff and of course the luxe packaging make this lipstick really special in my opinion.
I Hope you have enjoyed this post lovelies and I would really love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Do you think Adrienne is for you, or is there another shade you would like to try from the new 2015 formulation? I'm currently lusting after the shade 'Arthur'
