Antipodean Beauties - My Favourite Lipstick

Antipodean Beauties is a new make up challenge for Australian and NZ bloggers. Each week will have a different theme to create a post around. The idea is everyone posts each week and their is a link up at the bottom so you can check out the other posts from some amazing bloggers. 

My lip products collection. 

This weeks theme is "My Favourite Lipstick". OMG! My most dreaded question...

I have favourite lipsticks but there is a lot of favourites and most have a different reason for being a favourite. There is my favourite bright, nude, weekend casual, sheer, long lasting and then the work appropriate lipstick. I also had to remember as Chels pointed out that there is a difference between 'favourite' and 'most worn'. 

I thought about it all yesterday and last night and finally decided this morning and then wore it today just to make sure (I like to be thorough). 

My favourite lipstick is... drum roll please... 

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 54 Boy

It was a hard choice but I had to make it. Though I love my bright and bold colours, Boy is a lipstick I could wear everyday and still love

This lipstick is just a gorgeous easy to wear shade, I believe it would suit pretty much everyone. It is perfect for everyday wear whether it be for work, a night out or the weekend. I find this lipstick instantly makes me look polished and put together.

The formula is lovely. Creamy and moisturising but sheer enough to not need constant maintenance. The colour is a very pretty nudey pink that I just love. It is almost a my lips but better shade. 

Apologies for the less than stellar lip swatch above. My skin is really playing up at the moment and I have no idea why. My lips also look horrible - stupid winter drying them out.

So there is week one of the Antipodean Beauties Challenge. Feel free to join in! The Facebook page is located here: Antipodean Beauties. Hopefully I will be able to do each weeks challenge but knowing my lack of blogging lately I may not. I will try my best though!

  1. that's such a pretty colour.. the formulation of Chanel lippies is really so lovely..

  2. Hooray, gorgeous gorgeous Boy! I love this one and it definitely crossed my mind as one of the ultimate Faves ;-) got to love that Chanel Coco Rouge Shine formula too x

  3. Your collection looks impressive! My favourite lipstick is actually the same as yours! But Chanel Coco shine in Rivage is a very VERY close second :P

  4. Your lipstick collection is ridiculous! And I thought mine was bad, LOL! Now I don't feel so bad about how many lip products I own :)
    And great choice in Chanel Boy, such a classic shade, you can't go wrong!

  5. I have looked at this so many times and never got it because I suck at shelling out for nude colours. I need to change that :P
