playing lip service

I'm over winter. Non-stop flurries since Sunday and while this might not be the polar vortex that is coursing through the United States right now, I'm over it. I want spring to come. Badly. But, since it's not happening as soon as I want it to be, I'm indulging in some bright, vibrant colours for the lips.

From the drugstore (top to bottom):
Maybelline Colorsensational Elixir in Breathtaking Apricot 005, L'Oreal Extraordinaire by Colour Riche in Orange Tempo, and Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm in 300 Viva Violet. Peaches, oranges and a bright pink purple to boost the mood when the weather is so grey out.
These are the first Chanel lipsticks I've ever bought and I couldn't be happier with the colours that I've chosen. On the left is Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in 54 Le Baiser, which is described as a deep pink with gold shimmer, but the shimmer isn't obnoxious or over the top. On the lips, the colour is more of a coral than a deep pink because of the gold shimmer, which makes the lips look fuller and glossy. 

The Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in 145 Rayonnante is a deep fuchsia with mauve shimmer. Again, the shimmer isn't too intense either, but it does provide another dimension to the lip colour. 

I'm ready for spring, so hurry up and get here!
