Over the weekend as I headed to the Chanel counter, I had no intention of buying a lipstick. I knew what I wanted, and was hoping to get in and out as cheaply as possible. (Hilarious. I know... don't judge me). Seeing things in person is such a good and bad idea. Good, because you know if you'll like it or not... but BAD when you like EVERYTHING.
I ended up coming home with one lipstick - Caractere Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color. It's pretty much Fall perfection.
What the Nordstrom website has to say about Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color:
CHANEL introduces a modern interpretation of classic creme lip color as an homage to the rich life and legacy of Coco Chanel. New lightweight lip color glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips—even boosting their ability to hold in moisture—for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.
Caractere is the lipstick version of Troublant. A plummy rose cream with very little shimmer and a great amount of pigment. It's so creamy yet moisturizing. A very elegant and natural shade.
If you're iffy about vampy shades for Fall, this particular shade is a fabulous alternative.
