Chanel Lipsticks, Recent Buys and a Few Favorites

Who doesn't like Chanel? I have an understated love their lipsticks. Always have. Although I own a very small collection, I have a vast love for lip colors and have an embarrassingly large collection (60+, little more, little less) of lipsticks! :p

Chanel Rouge Allure in Emotion is a gorgeous satin-y rose peach shade with a gold sheen. I feel wonderful whenever I wear Emotion, because of how the lip color  adds dimension to your face with its blend of three fabulously elegant colors - rose pink, peach and gold.

Chanel Rouge Allure in Ardent is a seamlessly beautiful sheer to medium rosy coral shade with gold flecks. This one is HG because of how wearable it is. This shade reminds me of the spring bloom, and all the gorgeous florals of the season in one lipstick tube :)

Rouge Coco Legende is a complex creamy mauve pink/fuchsia shade. I can't really describe it any other way without sounding crazy. I absolutely adore this lipstick because it truly livens up the face on a cold day. It's that's youthful pink shade that you achieve when sucking on a red lollipop :)

Overall, I adore Chanel lipsticks. They're hydrating enough (not extremely though), and have wonderful color payoff. It's a bit of an "investment" lipstick ($30) but for a lipstick junkie like myself, I'm willing to find them online for better prices or simply just own a few without going overboard. They make me feel so grown up when I have them in my makeup bag at work. I love them so much that I hardly reapply because I just love being in their presence. Yup, I'm fully aware of how insane that sounds.

Here are some recent lipstick purchases I made :)

YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion 

It's a very cool tone peachy, coral shade that is creamy and luxurious on the lips. The subtle mango scent is also really refreshing and reminds me of the warmer days.

I've only worn this a handful of times, mostly on the weekends. I know a ton of people love this lipstick because of how creamy it is, but isn't it too creamy? I feel like it practically falls off my lips! o_o Since the pigmentation of this lipstick is outrageously so, I just swipe very lightly on my bottom lip and use my ring finger to blend the color. I love the beautiful ripe peach color, and the intense coral, but the creaminess of the lip color always feels like I've over applied unless you use your fingers (which I prefer anyway) but it's easy to waste the lipstick with that kind of consistency. 

Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Reflect 417 Pink Liberty
I don't have any swatches yet, sorry! This is a beautiful pearly lip gloss with light reflecting shimmer that makes your lips really glossy. I own both this and the Lace Beige which is a dark nude and I will show you later :) The tube looks so luxurious by itself, doesn't it? I can tell you that it's a really pearly pink that is especially charming in the daytime.

I also went to Walgreens last night and saw that they had a clearance on all their Yes to Carrots body butters!

I picked up 3 of these! These body butters mean serious business. They are super hydrating and really effective toward dry skin. I own the Yes to Cucumbers one and I love the refreshing scent. These butters have no parabens or bad ingredients. And carrots naturally brighten your skin :) Yay! I have enough butters for the next few months.

Here are some of my favorites for Jan and Feb :)

Dior blush in Passion Fruit (find it here) :D I've been using this blush almost everyday! I absolutely love it! It comes in two shades - one that is a blush and one that acts like a highlighter. The two work together beautifully to create a really pretty glow. Both are peachy shades! I love it soooooo much. This is my first Dior blush and I'm curious to see how the others compare. Do you love it? Hate it? :)

Sonia Kashuk blush in Lilly :) I can't even emphasize how much I love this blush. It's so pigmented (at least for me) and so pretty. It's a flattering matte pink with a bit of mauve to keep it warm on the face. I used this a lot in Feb and love this as an everyday color. Really natural and healthy looking. I'm growing a love toward Sonia Kashuk cosmetics! I also love the magnetic closure of this blush too :) Yay! I love blushes. You can find these at Target stores or online :)

This post took me all day to do! LOL I stopped in the middle to run errands.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
