I have taken pictures of pages from the latest magazines featuring interviews with Peter Philips, the global creative director of Chanel Makeup. Along the way, I will type out key points so that you can read without straining your eyes.
Credit line: Many thanks to HerWorld April 2010. Do checkout their revamped website @ HerWorld.com. And to Female April 2010, my current favourite mag.
So here is the colour orgasm, enjoy!
An interview with Peter Philips reveals that Rougue de Coco, a lipstick line fronted by Vanessa Paradis, wife of Johnny Depp, was created for young women. A attempt to bring back a generation of lip gloss-eaters (that's me!) onto lipsticks.
In contrast with Chanel's existing Rougue Allure range with more sophisticated and darker extreme colours, Rougue Coco is a creamy lippy that keeps lips moisturized for 8 hours.
In 30 shades, each is linked to the brands founder, Gabrielle Coco Chanel. Think names like Camelia and Mademoiselle.
Looking at the colours on the mag, I think I like Orchidee.
For browns, I think Sycamore looks good because of the shimmer.
It says Gabrielle looks best against yellow-toned skin. LOL. Looks like my type outs are more like notes for myself. :PPP
Next, I am quite amazed that there is beige tone range.
Forgot how to wear lipstick? Here are some quick tips from Peter Philips.
- Try to test on your lips if possible.
- For yellow skin, don't be afraid to try blues, they make your teeth look whiter.
- Use the lipstick to apply for true effect, rather than a brush.
- Use lip liners - match the colour to make lipstick colour last, use darker one for fuller lips, and a lighter liner on top, darker one below for balance.

Last but not least, presenting to you a mini survey on men's opinion about lipstick or lip gloss.
Wow! What a long post. That's all. =)
