Always a sucker for a pretty red, particularly when it’s a Chanel red, I had to pick up the two red lip products from Summer 2015 Collection Mediterranee – Chanel 440 Arthur Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Color ($34.00 // Nordstrom) and Chanel 457 Allegria Levres Scintillantes Glossimer ($30.00 // Nordstrom).
Chanel 440 Arthur Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Color ($34.00 // Nordstrom) is described as “luminous red” but when I wear it it’s got a pinkish orange hit to it. It’s not quite a coral-red, but lighter. Nicely pigmented and glossy while still wearing comfortably. This wore around 3-4 hours on me before I needed to reapply. Arthur is in the permanent line but is featured with Summer 2015.
Chanel 457 Allegria Levres Scintillantes Glossimer ($30.00 // Nordstrom) is described as “rose” but I find it to be a true red cream. The formula was creamy and completely opaque when worn. It only lasted about 2 hours on me before I felt like it needed touched up. This product is limited edition and a must-have.
