Meet my new love: Chanel’s Arthur

Familiar with the phrase ‘Blogger made me buy it’? I really should do a tag with that title soon, as I have been rather inspired by several beauty bloggers lately. My latest muse? Arthur (inspired by several lovely Instagram shots from Annie’s Beauty).

Chanel’s Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Arthur (440) is a beautiful bright red with an orange undertone. This new Rouge Coco series of lipsticks has been reformulated to be hydrating and has been named after important people in Coco Chanel’s life. I do love a good story behind the name of a product, Arthur was in fact Coco’s lover who died young in a tragic accident.

The lipstick has the luxurious packaging you would expect from Chanel: beautiful black and gold with a white logo on the top. Nothing quite like the click on a Chanel lipstick.

The lipstick itself is hydrating for your lips and glides on with ease. I love the bright color: perfect for spring. It lasts quite well on the lips for such a hydrating formula, about 3 to 4 hours before I feel the need to re-apply. Of course, reapplying is not exactly a chore with the lovely packaging.

I loved this lipstick so much, I have even gone out and bought a second Rouge Coco in Dimitri: a lovely pinkish-red. Expect to see a mini-review on Dimitri popping up here soon as well and I am sure you will be seeing a lot more from both of these on the blog!

Bekend met de uitdrukking ‘Blogger made me buy it’? Ik moet echt binnenkort een post doen met die titel, want ik ben de laatste tijd erg geïnspireerd door een aantal geweldige beauty bloggers. Mijn laatste liefde? Arthur (geïnspireerd door een aantal mooie Instagram shots van Annie’s Beauty).

Chanel’s Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Arthur (440) is een mooie fel rode kleur met een oranje ondertoon. De nieuwe Rouge Coco lipstick serie heeft een nieuwe hydraterende formule en is genoemd naar belangrijke mensen in het leven van Coco Chanel. Ik ben dol op een goed verhaal achter product-namen en Arthur was Coco’s minnaar die op jonge leeftijd om het leven kwam in een tragisch ongeval.

De lippenstift heeft de luxe verpakking die je verwacht van Chanel: mooi zwart met goud en een wit logo op de dop. Die klik van een Chanel lipstick blijft toch helemaal geweldig.

De lipstick zelf is heel hydraterend voor je lippen en makkelijk aan te brengen. Ik ben dol op de felle kleur: perfect voor de lente. Ondanks de hydraterende formule blijft de lipstick goed zitten: zo’n drie tot vier uur voordat ik moet bijwerken. Natuurlijk is dat ook niet echt een vervelend klusje met die geweldige verpakking.

Ik was zo dol op deze lippenstift, dat ik meteen een tweede gekocht heb: de rood-roze Rouge Coco Dimitri. Naast een mini review van Dimitri, zul je deze lippenstiften de komende tijd wel vaker voorbij zien komen op mijn blog!

    Yes! Please do a post on Dimitri as well. Arthur is *perfect*. Oh no, I feel that familiar tug in my middle…. Will Arthur soon find his way into my hands?? You’re right about it being a lighter feeling red that is gorgeous for spring.
    Lots of hugs

      Thanks! It is rather bright, there were some darker (or less bright) reds as well, but I love it 😀
