Last Friday night I was in a rush trying to make it to my book party at Assouline. Hair – done! Outfit – chosen! Make up – not quite right. I knew I wanted a red lip, but I didn’t have the right red AND it was Fashion’s Night Out mayhem in midtown.
I ran into Saks thinking Nars would save me but the lady at the counter was incredibly unhelpful and handed me something orange. ORANGE? I said red, honey. So I went where I should have in the first place – Chanel.
Francisco Rosales, the counter manager, took one look at me, shoved me in the chair and applied Rougue Allure Laque #75 (Dragon). Thanks to him I actually showed up early to the event.
It’s a true, real, blue red that’s not for the shy. But with a lip like this you need no other makeup. Buy it here. Not cheap but super long lasting and worth every penny.
