If I’m going to have a stranger stick me with a sharp object, you better believe I’ll be wearing a little Chanel, because Chanel makes everything better (even flu shots).
At least that’s what I told myself when I applied the new Rouge Allure Gloss in 15 Sensible (one of 10 shades, $34 each, available now at Chanel counters and online) before I went to get my flu shot today.
Every year when I walk into the flu shot clinic and catch that first glimpse of the needle, the panic sets in… I start mumbling and sweating profusely, and my eyes expand to double their normal size.
I had hoped that 15 Sensible would make me look less, I dunno, frightened? Rabid? Ready to rumble? I’d always reckoned that full-coverage lip glosses like the Rouge Allures tended to convey the appearance of serenity and properly aligned chakras.
But that could just be the crazy beauty logic talking. 🙂
Today, as I bared my left shoulder, concentrated on kittens, and waited for the nurse to jam the needle into my arm (“This won’t hurt at all,” she said. “Just a little pinch.”), I set my mouth into a stylishly glossy Chanel smile, even though I really wanted to scream, “THAT SH*T STINGS, MA!”
So, yeah. If you anticipate a huge horse needle plunging into your person, consider wearing one of the new Chanel Rouge Allure Glosses.
It may not fully relieve the searing, white hot pain (Just kidding! It’s not that bad.), but at least you’ll look fly…and your lips will feel great, since the non-sticky formula is also super moisturizing.
“The colour intensity of a lipstick. The lacquered shine of a lipgloss. With one seductive click, the sculpted applicator delivers high-precision, long-wearing coverage. The advanced formula, rich in Vitamin E, Sappan Wood and Green Tea Butter, instantly hydrates and comforts lips.”
And, as an added bonus, you won’t even have to touch up after you get home and inhale all of those Fun Size Snickers (stress eating, yo!), because the Rouge Allures last about four hours, even through snacks. #glasshalffull 🙂
