50 Shades of Red … Vol. 2

So here we are, and as promised for the last 30 days I donned Rouge Coco Shine “Dialogue,” with Framboise Precision Lip Definer, and Levres Scintillantes Glossimer 04, all compliments of Chanel. Yep, I never deviated!

Now, for the review. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give this trio a 6. Why, you ask? Let me start with the positive, my lips stayed completely moist, which is extremely important given the cold weather.

However, it didn’t seem too last long. Most days I filled in my entire lip with the Framboise Precision Lip Definer, using it as a base and then applied the Rouge Coco Shine “Dialogue” directly over the lip definer. Not so bad, but even with all of that coverage, I found myself reapplying both several times daily.

One day, hoping to glam it up, I followed the same routine, but added the Levres Scintillantes Glossimer 04.  Surprisngly, I really liked the look ~ I’m generally not a gloss girl ~ and kept it for the remainder of the 30 days.

Then why the somewhat average score of a 6? I think the real issue is that I could never fully commit to the color ~  just too much pink/magenta undertone. Would I purchase Chanel again? Mais Oui! One can never fully turn one’s back on Madame Chanel; but, would be much more discriminating with my color choice.

So here we are 50 Shades of Red … Vol. 2. This month I going “low.” Over the next 30 days I’ll be rocking L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in “Target” Red ~ ironically a quick purchase from said Target ~ with a MAC Lip Pencil in Brick.

Volume 2

I think that I am going to like this duo! We’ll see. I’ll be back on January 17th with the “deets.”

Until Then,
