A Little Lipstick & A Skincare Complaint

This is from the Chanel Rouge Coco line that came out last year. As you can see the shade is slightly coral and has a bit of shimmer. It looks good on the lips (in my opinion) although I usually just bring it over for spring/summer!

In the third picture down you can see how natural looking the colour is. Sort of a better version of my lips. I actually like this more than MAC's Hue because the hint of coral adds some warmth to my pale complexion.

Other bonuses include...
It doesn't dry out my lips, packaging is très chic, smells nice :)

Downsides...
The staying power is just mediocre. 




Now for an all-out rant!
These Neutrogena All-In-One wipes are the biggest let down ever! They broke out my skin in areas where I never usually get acne. 


If I pay $6 for 7 wipes they better work well. But there was nothing redeeming about these. The Ponds brand is actually just as effective at removing makeup and at half the price. Maybe my expectations were just too high, but I won't be buying these again. Sorry Neutrogena :/


What cleansing wipes would you recommend (if I dare to purchase another after this ordeal)?




I know this post was pretty random but I hope you enjoyed reading it! Please feel free to leave questions/comments I love receiving them and will respond to every one :)

  3. Really gorgeous lipstick! True what you said, it seems like one of those 'your lips, but better' colors, with just a hint more color. So pretty!
