Well, the day has finally arrived. Today marks the last day of my 365 day lipstick challenge. I don’t know how I got here, some days were very tough that’s for sure. But, I persevered and am so happy and proud to have made it to the finish line. Whoop!
I promised you all a great lipstick for my last day, and this one certainly is great. I don’t want to say I saved the best till last because I’ve tried so many incredible lipsticks over the past year, I feel that might be slightly unfair. What I will say however, is that I adore this particular one.
I only wore one other Chanel lipstick over the course of my challenge, Insaisissable, from the luminous intense lip colour range. I loved it and it was one of my favourite lipsticks of the year so because of that, I decided to end on another Chanel.
Today’s lipstick is from the Rouge Allure Velvet collection so the finish is quite different to the last one I tried. It has more of a matte finish than sheer, but with a rich creamy texture that feels lovely on.
The shade is a gorgeous warm rose shade, and those of you who followed my challenge will know that I became a big fan of rose tones this year. It was probably one of the more surprising finds of the challenge because I’d never really worn a rose shade lippy before, but have now grown to love them.
Unfortunately I am smothering with the flu and quite honestly, the last thing I wanted to do today was put on a face of makeup. But, I had to go out on a high and this gorgeous lippy has helped me do that.
Of course I have had several days over the past year where I wasn’t in the mood, or wasn’t feeling well, particularly during the first few months of my pregnancy when I had some bad morning sickness. Nevertheless, I soldiered through and now I’ve made it!
This lippy is one of the most versatile shades that I’ve tried; the warm tone makes it very flattering to all skin types and the formula is very moisturising on the lips too. So it’s definitely one that I would recommend splurging on.
But now it’s time for me to bid farewell to my challenge and the exciting, crazy, whirlwind year that was 2017. I will be sharing a round up post of my Top Ten lipsticks of the year later in the week, but for now, I’ll bid you all a very Happy New Year and wonderful 2018 ahead.
Yours always in lipstick…
