Chanel: Rouge Coco 19 Gabrielle

I want to pay tribute to my first ever Chanel lipstick. How fitting it would be that I got the Chanel #19 Gabrielle Rouge Coco lipstick, named after the famous Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel herself and as for the number, she was born on August 19, 1883. I got this a year ago at Kuala Lumpur Airport. I don't use it much, I only use it on special occasions or fancy dinner dates. It's a bit expensive so I'm kinda like saving it. lol

Chanel Description : CHANEL presents a modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of 'Coco' Chanel. New lightweight lip colour 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.

What color is it : True red color, neither warm or cool.

Price : I got it for RM 95. About P1274. I think Rustan's sell them at P1600+

What I think about it : I love that it is very creamy. No need to put lip balm before apply. No need to put gloss on top of it. The only negative thing that I can think of is it's so creamy it tends to stick on my teeth. There were a couple of times I smiled in public with red Chanel lipstick stain on my teeth. (@_@). But I found a solution to that! After apply a thick layer of it , put your finger inside your mouth. The excess lipstick on your inner lips with go to your finger. This lipstick is ABSOLUTELY elegant.

Have A Lovely Day!
