3 Summery, Bold and Bright Red Lipsticks From the Chanel Permanent Collection

I’ve been affectionately calling summery shades like these my “popsicle lipsticks” because they’re juicy, shiny and absolutely delicious…in the figurative sense, of course! You probably won’t find me nibbling these tubes when I’m feeling peckish, haha!

Side note: I think I may have just invented something!

Are you ready for it? Here goes: ice cream that looks like lipstick. ?? Boom. Wouldn’t that be cool? I’d be all over it. MAKE IT HAPPEN, TRADER JOE’S.

Anywho, I’m revisiting my Chanel lipsticks, and these three are in Chanel’s permanent collection. I think they’re all perfect brights for summer.

Rouge Allure Velvet in 43 La Favorite ($40), a reddish coral with a matte finish that has a touch of luminosity, represents something I think Chanel does extremely well: finish. This lippie has je ne sais quoi, and you can build it up or sheer it out. Of course, both ways are super pretty.

Rouge Coco in 472 Experimental ($40) is a warm red with a touch of orange, and it reminds me that I’m a big fan of the Rouge Coco line because of how moisturizing the lippies are. My dry lips greatly appreciate that.

Rouge Allure in 172 Rouge Rebelle ($40) is a bright neutral red with a satin finish, and it works particularly well with warm brown eyeshadow!

It’s a Cruel Summer.

No, I’m not talking about the Bananarama song… ?

Is it just me, or can these girls only barely sing?

I just started watching this young adult-ish mystery show called Cruel Summer, and I blame it for my lack of sleep last night!

It’s about two girls whose lives become intertwined after one gets kidnapped.

The episodes bounce back and forth between 1993, 1994 and 1995, and I’m having all sorts of nostalgia for my ’90s-era wardrobe. I wish I hung on to my oversized overalls, striped knit shirts, baggy Levis and floral dresses, le sigh!

Also, the suspense is keeping me up at night. Note to self: GO TO SLEEP EARLY THIS EVENING. Don’t say I didn’t warn you if you start marathoning it on Hulu (that’s where I found it).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I admit that if I had to chose a red lipstick, it would definitely be Chanel Rouge Coco. It is my favorite Chanel formula and to me, Chanel says Red lipstick. I’d probably go for one that is more neutral as my natural lip color is more berry-toned.
    I have yet to buy a red lip color, but I think I am ready!

    Be well.

      You ARE ready! I think you should go for it as Chanel does amazing reds!

    Please let us know when T Joes gets this icecream, my list already has the body wash and lotion from your previous posts! 😀
    La Favorite looks like something I’d wear in a heartbeat! I actually picked up Eclosion after reading one of your posts – LOVE it!

    My favorite red from Chanel is a LE Rouge Allure. It comes in a red case and it was called No. 5. My favorite Rouge Coco is 430 – Marie.
    Stopped in Nordie’s to pick up some Chanel eye makeup remover and the Chanel counter manager said that they are reformulating their Stylo Yeux liners and they are arriving the first week in July. If you have a favorite, try to find it and stock up. Reformulations always leave me a little wanting.

    I need to wear red lips more for meetings on camera! These are all gorgeous choices.

    Of these three, I like Experimental and Rouge Rebelle.

    No, it’s not just you – Bananarama can’t sing and never could…

    Is there a way to use highlighter that doesn’t show every crease and wrinkle? *asking for a friend*

    OMGosh, you’re killing me with the Chanel! Warm, cozy browns and sheer, pink polish. It’s just too much. 🙂 Thanks for topping it off with the 90s nostalgia, because you know I’m right there with you on that. HAHA! I’m now intrigued by Cruel Summer. I’ll try to check it out if I can get the Hubs to stop watching Letterkenny on a loop.

    Bananarama like Debbie Gibson and Tiffany could not sing. They were the precursors to the late 90’s/early 2000’s pop explosion of the likes of Brittany Spears and Jessica Simpson. All hugely successful but vocal prowress poor.
