All About Lips #14

Chanel Rouge Coco 19  -  Gabrielle

You may have seen Bob and I swatching various red lipsticks in our combined post - Bob's Red Lipsticks
 I have swatched it on the back of my hand.

There were a few lipsticks from Bob which I fell in love after swatching and I have a list of purchases but this was my first Bob enabled lipstick purchase.

I picked it up at Heathrow recently (read it HERE) and have been using it more as a stain than as a proper lipstick because my father thinks bright colours accentuate my huge lips and mouth (a bad thing in his opinion) but it inspired me to show you the different ways to wear this lipstick and the effect it provides

First, a picture with no lip products as comparison

Here I have dabbed in on (hence the splotches) and then smudge it out with my finger for a stained effect

Here it is with a deeper stain

Here is the lipstick swiped directly from the bullet, in full opacity

Here it is in its full glory

  2. That lip colour looks amazing on you Christabel!

    I didn't realise you were from Malaysia. Malaysia is one my fav places in the world. I travelled around it a bit a couple of years ago, one of my best holidays ever. :)
