What a day I’ve had. Had a pretty good week but Friday has crushed me in terms of general stressful happenings. You know when you head hurts, your hands are a little shaky and you have odd bowel movements. Oh, that’s just me.
I needed a treat. Just something to perk up an otherwise diabolic day.
Yeah right, I wish.
No, some Chanel silly! Went to have a look at lunch time. They had a nice little display up with some of their new Rouge Allure’s matching polish, lip liners and Laque glosses – which are supposed to last 8 hours. The glosses came quite a few shades ranging from bright deep reds to a pale pink. I didn’t have time to swatch them all and because my net at home if OFF, I won’t be able to post pics of the ones I bought for a day or so.
“It’s not a lip gloss, its a lip lacker” the SA told me.
“A lacker?” I said? “Nice”
Anyway, it didn’t stop be getting two shades, Ming a pale pink and Mandarin, a glossy orangey-red with gold flecks, a day and evening selection. I don’t like the name Ming for a lip gloss – it reminds me of ‘Minging’ or ‘Minger’.
‘Rowena, you lipstick is minging’
‘Er – thanks? I think?’.
They also had a red, called Dragon (I think) which was just so beautiful but let’s face it – for £22.50 (ARGH) I wanted something that could cross over day and evening looks.
Products pictures to follow. But there you have it. You don’t need inner peace! You just need a new Chanel lipgloss!
p.s. when I review properly I will put it up to test against some peri-peri chicken, yay!
