WHAT WE'RE LOVING: Chanel Lipstick
In keeping with our theme for this past week, we are searching for hues that are perfect to make the summer to fall transition and what better place to look than Chanel? I love their products because they contain Jojoba oil and shea butter which leave your lips soft and supple while imparting a gorgeous color.
I actually picked up this color in the summer while looking for a bright color to wear with many of my summer outfits. It has made such an impression that I have wanted to keep it in my collection for any and every night out. While I normally tend toward nude lips, this color was too wonderful to pass up. I tend to also wear relatively natural make up so the color is also a great addition to my overall beauty routine.
As per usual, I always prime my lips with MAC Prep + Prime before applying any lip color. Of all of the lip primers I have found, this one is truly the best and at $17.50, it is a little bit on the more expensive side but trust me, worth every cent and lasts much longer than you think it would.
Once you have the primer on, apply a lip liner or pencil to your lips, especially if you are like me and tend to move your lips around a lot. It really helps to make sure that the color stays on longer and does not bleed over everything you drink.
Next, apply the lip color and voilà, you are ready to go! The pink really brightens up your face and keeps looking amazing all through the day! Chanel's lipsticks wear incredibly well. I often only apply it once before work and it is still there at lunch time and when I go home (I usually touch it up during lunch time just to be safe ... and because I am a prodigious coffee drinker and no lipstick can hold up to that).
