A Little Chanel Obsession

Ah I am so excited to write this post! Purely because I am Chanel obsessed. I've been fascinated with the brand Chanel since I was young and I witnessed my mum receive a gorgeous Chanel compact mirror and Chanel No 5. Since then my obsession grew with a fascination around the history of Coco Chanel, her miliriary inspired famous suit and of course, the 2.55 Chanel handbag! It's on my bucket list to one day own one of those babies (when I win the lottery or become CEO of the universe of course)! I was treated to a gorgeous coffee table book for Christmas called 'Coco Chanel' by Megan Hess on the history of Chanel. I definitely recommend it, it has the most beautiful illustrations on each page (Yes I am fan girling over Chanel once more).

Thanks to the incredible concept of Boots Advantage Card points I managed to treat myself to my first Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick 'Antigone'. A very gorgeous vibrant blush colour. Naturally I never shut up about my obsessions (handbags, cake, chanel lipsticks etc) so much so the boyf for our 1 year anniversary treated me to another simply stunning Rouge Coco Shine lipstick 'Temeraire'. Lucky me!

I've found these lipsticks to be as brilliant as to be expected. They're vibrant, long lasting (apologies for sounding like a L'Oreal advert) and super moisturizing. I can find some lipsticks to be a bit drying, particularly in the winter, but not these beauties! Plus, they don't make me look like I've had a run in with the joker...a natural fear of mine whenever I apply new lipsticks. 

My aim this year is to build up a massive luxury lipstick collection and Chanel is definitely the best place to start (naturally). Yeah so some of you may have beach body goals and new years resolutions but me? I'm all about the lipstick hoarding! .... I joke of course....I think. 

Do you have a favourite lipstick? I'm on the hunt for more for my collection so any recommendations I highly welcome! Let's lipstick hoard together.
