Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


I Have a New Love and Her Name is Paris

I bought a Chanel lipstick. I BOUGHT A CHANEL LIPSTICK.

Now for some of you this might not be a big deal but for me it is. Firstly I'm scared of the people that work on make-up counters. Secondly I don't have £21.96 to spend on lipsticks regularly. So I am a very happy girly.

I got a red one, obviously.

Rouge Coco in the colour 22 - Paris.

I love it!

The woman working on the counter was lovely, she said she liked my shoes and that I had nice skin and eyes and that my hair colour suited me. Compliments go down well with me. She wasn't pushy at all and was happy to let me leave with just my lipstick. I asked her about the Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation and she colour matched me to the lightest shade but we thought it was still a bit dark so she gave me a sample to try at home, without me even asking! Overall it was a lovely experience and now I'm no longer scared of the Chanel ladies. This is probably a bad thing. Definitely a bad thing.

Oh well.

Will post swatches when there is some sunlight!

Hope you're all having good weekends?

    I recently splurged on a chanel lipstick and blusher. I'm scared to use them lol! I still have them in their boxes. This looks lovely :) I'm dying to try the rouge coco shine now!

  2. I think this lipstick will live in it's box too lol! I love it though and will try and get lots of use out of it! 

  3. I look forward to the swatches! I've wanted a chanel lippie :)

  4. This is lovely! I really would love to try Chanel but for now, I'm quite happy with my drugstore products! xx

  5. Wow looks like a lovely shade! I always get scared of those women, and had bad experiences with the Clinique counter women! x
