This is my very first Chanel Lipstick - I've had the shade 'Boy' on my wish list for ages so on my way back from Tenerife in October, i decided that the time had finally come to treat myself and get it. However, when i swatched 'Boy' i was super disappointed, it's a lovely nude shade but i found it barely transferred any colour and i just felt that it wasn't worth the money, so after swatching the rest of the range i decided on the shade Boheme and i can safely say I'm pretty happy with my choice.

Boheme is a coral/orange shade which as a slight red undertone - it's a really gorgeous shade, it's definitely a perfect spring/summer lip colour and i know i will be wearing it a heck of a lot during those seasons - I have actually still been wearing it now though. It's such a gorgeous colour and it's one of those lipstick that i enjoy wearing day to day because even though it's a brighter colour, it's very wearable.

The formula of this lipstick is my absolute favourite, it's has a similar formula to a lip butter - it's creamy, moisturising and hydrating and feels amazing on the lips. It does apply quite sheer but it's very buildable so you can either go for a light hint of colour or build it up from something more intense.

Please just take a moment to admire this packaging, it's just stunning and the classic black and gold colours give it that really luxurious feel and look to it, i almost want to frame it in a glass box. Due to it's sheer application, it doesn't have the longest staying power and does need to be reapplied but i reapply my lip products anyway and i really like this lipstick so i can look past that.

Chanel lipsticks definitely aren't on the cheap side; they retail for around £25.00 but if you are thinking about treating yourself to one, i would definitely recommend it. They are amazing quality and have a massive range of shades and formulas too.

Do you own any Chanel Lipsticks?

  1. I love Chanel lipsticks! I only have the one myself but I tend to 'borrow' my mums too. They are really good quality and the packaging is so nice. Really worth the money. You'v made me want to go out and buy another!

    1. I only own this one, but i'd love to get one of their red shades!
