The 7 Day Lipstick Challenge - Day 6

For the second last day of this challenge (day 6) it wouldn't be complete without a Chanel lipstick. I love Chanel as a brand, all together from beauty to fashion. Their lipsticks have always been one I gravitated towards and I really enjoy many of them. From the classic black and gold packaging to the beauty of the Chanel "CC" logo, it is a must have in every girls makeup collection.

The Rogue Coco & Rogue Coco Shine lipsticks are the main range I have within my collection and I love the simplicity to these. The Chanel Rogue Allure lipsticks haven't been one that have drawn my attention, mainly for a few reasons. I am not too fond of the packaging. The pop out click casing is amusing, however I find it doesn't appeal to me. Though, my favourite part of the packaging is the embossing of the Chanel logo (the Rogue Coco's have the same embossing). I like and prefer the traditional look to lipsticks. I've never enjoyed any bulky or pop/slide out casing for a lipstick (especially those Guerlain lipsticks with the mirror). I just find it gimmicky and unnecessary.

I was given this Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in the shade #58 Audace (RRP $52 AUD) from my Mother. We were going through our makeup stash one night and started swapping a few of our lipsticks. I remember swapping my YSL lipstick for this Chanel lipstick. I realised I actually didn't own any bold red lipsticks from Chanel and this was the perfect shade to use. Though, that be said, I have actually never wore it since Mum gave it to me, so this was the perfect time to bring out this beauty.

It is such a beautiful bold red, I love the exotic tones to it. Although it is bold, it still has a slight brightness to it with an orange undertone, which I find makes it quite unique. These types of red lipsticks flatter my skin tone nicely. It wears nicely throughout the day and seems to sink into the lips and have a lock in type of formula. I love that it is hydrating but doesn't slip around your lips. Applying the lipstick with a lip brush will help with achieving a crisp and neat look, also blot between each application helps with longevity. I love pairing this lipstick with minimal makeup and a black winged eyeliner. Keeping it simple, but very classic at the same time.
