Chanel Haul | Lips & Nails | Shakespeare & Sparkle

If there’s one brand I’ve dreamed about owning ever since I was a little girl, it’s Chanel. I used to pass by their makeup counters and wistfully sigh over that classic logo adorned packaging. So when in Paris, I knew it was finally time for a little Chanel splurge. And since I feel like lipsticks and nail polishes are always the best way to start getting to know a luxury brand (since they usually won’t break the bank), that’s where I started my Chanel journey as well.

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink | 140 Amoureux

I already mentioned this lippie in my spring edit, but I’m so obsessed with it that I could happily dedicate an entire post to talking about it. First, let’s take a moment for that packaging. Frosted glass, black & gold cap and a cone-shaped doe foot applicator that makes applying just beautiful. Then there’s the fact that this is possibly the most comfortable matte lipstick I’ve ever tried. It has a smooth texture that glides on like a gloss. Then dries to a velvety matte that’s so lightweight it feels like you’re wearing nothing on your lips.

The shade Amoureux is a dusky pink nude that hits that sweet spot of being just the tiniest bit pinker than my natural lip shade. It’s an easy everyday nude that goes with everything, and makes me look more alive.

Chanel Rouge Coco | 402 Adrienne

When you think of Chanel, Rouge Coco lipsticks are often the first thing that comes to mind. I already owned one of the more sheer Rouge Coco shines, but had yet to try the originals. And since Anna (from The Anna Edit) is always going on about her love for Adrienne, I figured I’d give it a go. I love the classic packaging that not only looks, but also it feels really luxe and weighty. The lipstick itself is creamy, buttery and hydrating, while still offering a full coverage.

The shade Adrienne is an easy to wear peachy beige nude, with just a hint of satiny shine to it.

Chanel Le Vernis | 18 Rouge Noir

As a lover of pale pink polishes, I actually went in looking for a nude, but didn’t quite fall in love with any of the options. I was about to walk out empty handed when the sales lady suggested that I try something different. She told me Rouge Noir is her favourite shade, and when a chic French girl (working at Chanel no less!) tells you something is their favourite, you try it.

Rouge Noir is a deep red so dark it’s almost black. (Hence the name, Red Black). You could probably get by with just one coat, but to really deepen the colour you need two. It’s an incredibly chic shade that’s almost like the little black dress of nails. It goes with everything for every occasion.

Are you a Chanel addict?

    There is nothing quite like a chanel bag is there?
    I don’t really like chanel lip balm/lip tint because I find it to sticky!

      Definitely! I actually haven’t tried the Chanel lip balm, but I’ve mostly heard good things about it so it’s interesting to hear a differing opinion. xx

    I remember seeing Adrienne on Anna’s blog and thinking what a gorgeous shade it was! Rouge Noir is also an excellente choice, last year I wanted to buy it too and I went to five different beauty shops (including the big Sephora store at the Champs Elysées!) and it was sold out everywhere! I had to settle for a Dior shade that is an almost perfect dupe haha. This is a timeless, ladylike shade and looks amazing with a top coat to make it shine a little more 🙂

      They are both such gorgeous shades! I can definitely imagine Rouge Noir being sold out, it’s such an iconic beauty classic. xx
