So I went back for Sourire... Sourire (£23) along with Culte (£23) are part of a small collection of new lip shades that Chanel released at the start of April (my previous post is here).Whilst these are a European release at the moment, my understanding is that they are rolling out the collection in America around Summer.
Whilst Sourire #70 was described as a peachy pink it actually goes on as a petal pink
on me, the colour is sheer and there is subtle golden micro glitter
It is very pretty but I'll have to pretend to myself that I
don't already have similar shades. I think if you like the look of a
gloss but not the feel then the Coco shines are a good alternative.
My mother picked up Culte #42 but let me try it for this post. Its a
very cool toned plummy/brown burgundy.
Whilst I really like the colour
swatched, applied the purple tone pulls too strong and it doesn't work
for me, I don't think its the easiest shade to wear but I think this one
is going to vary quite a bit depending on your natural lip pigment. I
find the formula of the Rouge Coco's to vary, the majority I have tried
are a bit drying (such as Culte) but there are a few that are more
moisturising/have more slip. Nonetheless Culte does last extremely well.
We bought these from Debenhams.
