Chanel Rouge Allure 98 Coromandel

Ever since I got my first high end lipstick, which was a YSL Rouge Volupte, take a look (here) if you wish to see that one, I had been after another. I am obsessed with Chanel cosmetics and when I seen the Rouge Allure lipsticks I knew I had to have one! I did my research for a good few weeks before deciding I definitely wanted the Coromandel shade, but at £25 I kept telling myself I didn't need it. Until a trip to Frasers when I came out with this in hand! 
There is just something about the sleek monochrome and gold boxes Chanel products come in that makes me swoon! The packaging of the lipstick itself is so glossy and chic and its black case which houses the gold bullet of the lipstick. I love the click open and close feature of it as well. I think Chanel products are just so classic yet girly at the same time and that is one of the many reasons I love them!
Onto the actual shade of the lipstick, the lovely lady on the Chanel counter told me it was a more Orange/coral red than a true red, which being a fair skinned girl I was looking for. It has a slight golden shimmer to it than it is only noticeable in the bullet as it just seems to melt into the lips. I thought the colour was amazing as soon as it was applied to my lips I knew I had to have it!

It looks very orange close up and with only one layer applied to the lips but applied in a couple of layers it is much more red and I feel its a kind of statement colour without being too in your face like other reds I have tried. Definitely the perfect red for any pale skinned girls. My only downside to this is that because my lips can already get rather dry I found after a few hours of wear this had dried them out, but I did mange to overcome this by priming with a good application of chapstick before I put it on.

Chanel Rouge Allure are £25 and availible from Fraser's and Debenhams
