CHANEL ROUGE COCO Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour 'Cecile' Review ❤

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick Cecile
Hi Lovelies!
Hope you are all doing really well? Despite being under the weather right now, I had the most dreamy spa day last Friday with one of my friends Floss. I honestly can't wait to write that post up and tell you all about our day! I'm still a little unsatisfied with my picture situation and blogger is still messing around with my colours and resolution, so please forgive me if I'm not on top of my picture game right now. I just couldn't go any longer without posting another lipstick review, so I thought I would review one of my more recent Chanel purchases, which is the Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in the shade 'Cecile' I've also reviewed the shade 'Adrienne' which can be found here. Chanel lipsticks are my guilty pleasure and I've been SO impressed with their new reformulated Rouge Coco Lipsticks, so I'm definitely going to be picking up a few more shades in the next few weeks! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. I always reply to comments and it really does make my day hearing that you've enjoyed reading my post.. so don't be shy :) You can also get in contact via my social media icons just to the right hand side if you would like a quicker response.

When looking for a new lipstick my eyes are usually drawn to what I like to call 'Cocktail Shades' which are usually bright and super pretty looking. However, through trial and error and a lot of money later I've found that quite a lot of those shade's don't really suit my skin tone! I wanted to find a Pink that actually suited me and made me feel more confident about my overall look. I was lucky to have a super lovely sales assistant who showed me the shade 'Cecile' at the Chanel counter and explained to me that it was a beautiful rose wood toned shade, which would bring out my green eyes. It's actually the lipstick I'm wearing in my blog profile picture too! I must admit I probably wouldn't have picked it up by myself, but after she applied it to me I was sold. I couldn't believe how much this lipstick brought out the colour in my eyes! All of a sudden I felt a lot better about myself, as I had been feeling a little meh that day. I ended up making the purchase and Cecile has become one of my most loved lipsticks!

If you read my review on 'Adrienne' you might have seen that the new re-invented Rouge Coco's were named after Coco Chanel's loved ones, friends, muses and her favourite artists. I love to know the real meaning and history behind a brand, so I thought that was actually a really nice touch for the re-invention of the new lipsticks. The formula is also a dream and I feel like it's much improved on the previous formula. I have some of the older Rouge Coco's and find that they are not consistent in their textures and I found some of the old shades to be a little grainy and uncomfortable. However, that is not something you need to worry about with the 2015 formula and I can honestly say that even my dry/chapped lips can happily pull off the new formula without a lip balm! In terms of 'Cecile' as a shade, it's best described as a soft rose-wood pink with warm undertones. Cecile also has a soft frosted sheen, but don't be put off by that, as I've found that it actually makes my lips look fuller and not so flat looking! It's a perfect shade to wear on a daily basis, but I love that it does add a little something to your lips, plus if you have 
greeny/blue eyes it will really make them pop! I don't think that restricts this lipstick though, as I'm sure with it's soft/warm tones that it will suit loads of skin tones and eye colours. I thought I would add a picture below of me wearing it, so you can see how it looks on my natural skin tone. Excuse the 'au natural selfie' and puffy eyes though, I've been pretty unwell the past week and sleep hasn't been my friend Ha!

Overall
I adore 'Cecile' and it's currently my most worn lipstick along with the shade 'Adrienne' They are pretty pricey at £26 a pop, but I do feel that the formula has been improved so much! If I had to recommend you just one shade I would probably say 'Adrienne' Purely as it's the most wearable nude I have ever come across and it's super hard to find a flattering nude in my opinion! I love both though and would totally recommend both shades if your in the market for a cheeky lipstick splurge!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this lipstick, Is it a shade you would like to try?

Lot's of Love

  11. Beautiful lipstick, I have so many nudes that I almost never wear because I love pops of color in the spring/summer. But the formula sounds incredible!

  18. I have never tried Chanel lipsticks but I absolutely loved the story behind this launch too. I would do a similar thing if I was ever to name makeup shades as I really love things that have a deeper meaning in this way. Really lovely review!
