During my recent beauty clear-out i discovered that my obsession is getting a tad-bit out of control...unused pink lipsticks/glosses galore while other color options were limited to say the least. Being the diligent beauty collector i decided it was high time to build a wearable lipstick wardrobe that wont collect dust on the vanity and could inspire more versatility in my makeup looks! OK i needed an excuse to buy more lippies....See how easy it is for me to justify a purchase! Somehow I went from having too many lipsticks to needing new ones :-)
I own several Chanel Rouge Coco Shines (mostly pink or nude) so i knew experimenting with color within this range was doable since the lipsticks are so sheer, shiny, classy and usually a good investment (if you know what you are getting!). The low reviews all seem to revolve around pigmentation but i want to respectfully remind everyone that even Chanel describes these as sheer & glossy.
The texture reminds me more of a tinted balm then a lipstick - its moisturizing on its own, adds a touch of colour, shiny finish, all of which results in low staying power (3-4 hours on me).
Liberte was my first coral-like shade and even though the pink-lover in me resisted i ordered it sight-unseen and discovered a whole new side to me. Due to its sheerness this lipstick is so versatile that i find works with almost any look - daytime especially, office approved but can easily be used at night too, due to the gloss factor :)
As long as you know you are getting a very sheer lipstick then i say try it - especially if you are trying to expand your colour horizons like me!
