How many times have I said, “I’ve been going through a … phase”? A minimal makeup phase, a smoky eye phase (since forever), a cat eye phase, what have you.
I’ve been going through a red lips phase since, roughly, birth, give or take a few days, and $37 Chanel Dimitri is my latest red lipstick love.
Dimitri is a permanent color in Chanel’s hydrating Rouge Coco line. It’s a warm, semi-opaque red with a finish that begins as a smooth, luscious, low-level lip shine but starts to look more like a matte after 30 minutes or so, which is the coolest thing about it to me, because Chanel is sooo good at subtle shifts like that.
Chanel also loves little bells and whistles, and this beauty tastes and smells like pricey roses. If I’m lucky enough to still be around to meet Connor Claire’s little ones someday, I would love for them to remember me fondly whenever they catch a whiff of a rosy lipstick like this one.
Try it sometime with a shimmery taupe eyeshadow, ’cause the two look LOVELY together. Here I’m wearing a Chanel cream shadow called Talpa.
Your friendly beauty addict,
