So I was trying the lipstick thing again. This time I got some help from an excellent make up artist, Mercedes at the Chanel counter. It’s just my luck though that she’s a travelling regional rep and was just visiting my local store. I got her card, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed that if I need her again I can find her.
I’m a fan of Chanel nail polish but I hadn’t tried their lipsticks before. Everything above was on the recommendation of the rep Mercedes. I told her about my general comfort zone when it comes to lipstick colors and explained that it wasn’t something I wore often so I wanted an every day, natural looking color and then something a little bolder for the days I want to be noticed :).

The Rouge Coco in Lune Rousse is what she picked out for my bolder color. It felt really smooth and moisturizing on and it had a nice scent. In the store she layered it with a gloss that looked similar to the Laura Mercier Mauve Plum that I already had at home and I loved the look.
