A Chanel Treat

  


I feel I have come to an important milestone in my beauty blogging days, I have bought my first Chanel lipstick. On my way back from Majorca I stopped at the Chanel counter at Palma airport and found this most beautiful orange toned red lipstick. It is called Incandescente and is from the Rouge Allure collection. For me, Chanel is the one of the most luxury lipsticks you can own, the packaging is just so sleek and beautiful, and I feel so stylish even carrying it. The sleek black tube and 'pop' opening is just so luxe and I am in love with it.
  

As for the pigmentation and the formula, I found that the lipstick was fairly pigmented, however it was definitely buildable, and the picture below shows it on my lips with just one layer. The colour is amazingly vibrant and would suit any skin tone. The formula is very satin in finish, its far from matte but it is definitely not a 'glossy' finish. It reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple which is one of my all time favourite lipsticks, and perhaps the only lipstick I have ever finished. I wore this to work and at the end of my four hour shift I still have a true colour left on my lips, despite having several drinks.


 Overall I would definitely recommend splashing out on this lipstick as it was possibly the most comfortable lipstick to wear, and it's so versatile and buildable. I feel like I will never get bored of Chanel packaging either, it will just never go out of style. These retail for £26, but I paid around €26, which is equivalent to just over £18, so it was an absolute bargain! Duty Free is my love.

Are you a fan of Chanel Lipsticks? Please tell me I am not the only one obsessed with Chanel packaging?!
