It was on a recent jaunt to a Chanel counter that I realised my tastes had changed away from the brights and bold that MAC and Illamasqua are more famed for and that I had been stocking up on lots of neutrals and ‘sensible’ colours.
With this, I bought myself my first Chanel lipstick – Rouge Coco in 04 Cashmere. I did actually ask the S.A in Boots whether I’d get a Chanel bag or a poxy boots one (yes, shallow I know!!)
Cashmere is a goldy brown neutral with slight pink undertones to it. It borders between Satin and a mild frost finish in my opinion but I think that’s from the colour being shot through with a fine gold sparkle.
The lipstick lasts an age without losing that nice moisturing feeling. Minimal transfer from the lips too.
I guess they are right… you get what you pay for… and I’ve already bought a 2nd and got some mascara! Ooops!
