Mini Make-up Haul: Chanel and Essence

I have been a bit naughty today: I spend my lunch break procuring a lovely new Chanel lipstick. In a strange effort to restore the balance, I also bought to budget Essence eyeliners.

Chanel has done it again. Not only does the new series of Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colors have an amazing variety of beautiful shades, but there is a lovely story behind the names which are all inspired by Coco’s close friends.

I chose Arthur (440), named after her lover Arthur “Boy” Capel. A pretty red with strong orange tones, a little outside of my normal comfort zone but it just looked like an amazing color for spring. There are so many pretty colors in this range it was difficult to choose.

I also picked up two new Essence eyeliners, the Eyeliner Pen Waterproof in black and the Superfine Eyeliner Pen. Essence makes my favorite liner, so I am curious to see how I get on with these.

Ik ben vandaag een beetje stout geweest: ik heb tijdens mijn lunchpauze een geweldige nieuwe lipstick van Chanel gekocht. In een poging om de balans te herstellen heb ik ook nog twee budget eyeliners van Essence meegenomen.

Chanel heeft weer helemaal voor elkaar. De nieuwe serie Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colors heeft niet alleen heel veel mooie kleurtjes, maar ook nog een mooi verhaal achter alle namen: geinspireerd door de vrienden van Coco Chanel.

Ik koos voor Arthur (440), vernoemd naar haar geliefde Arthur “Boy” Capel. Een mooie rode kleur met oranje ondertoon. Deze kleur is voor mij wel wat anders dan normaal, maar het leek me zo’n gave kleur voor de lente. Er zijn zoveel geweldige kleuren in deze serie dat het moeilijk kiezen was.

Ik kocht ook twee nieuwe Essence eyeliners, de Eyeliner Pen Waterproof in zwart en de Superfine Eyeliner Pen. Essence maakt mijn favoriete liners, dus ik ben benieuwd of deze net zo goed zijn als normaal.

    I LOVE that Essence Waterproof liner. It’s a product I have repurchased over and over again. Their eyeliner pens stay put really well, particularly the waterproof one.
    That lipstick is beautiful! I think I might have to splurge on it at some point. πŸ˜‰ ❀

      I think Essence might do the best eyeliner pens ever. I have tried several budget and high end ones, but always go back to Essence πŸ™‚
      Yes, it is very pretty. Though I recently got the new Chanel lipstick that – unsurprisingly – is also amazing πŸ˜€
      Have a lovely weekend ❀

        I used to use a L’OrΓ©al one which I loved at the time but I have never repurchased it again after finding the Essence ones. They are about half the price of the L’OrΓ©al ones and they just work so well. It will take a lot for me to change liners. πŸ˜‰ What is the finish of the Chanel lipstick like? Is it slightly glossy or more of a satin finish or really creamy?

          Well, especially since they are so cheap! And I go trhough eyeliners like crazy, so that is a bonus!
          The lipstick is really hydrating, so I would say it has a glossy finish (even slightly opaque). Lasts for about 3-4 hours because it is so moisturising.

    Gorgeous colour! I am quite such that a red lipstick with orange undertones would look great with your complexion! I really like that colour (and how you chose to restore balance!! πŸ˜‰ )
