I’ve been admiring this lipstick for months, ever since I saw this stunning ad in a magazine earlier this year:
It was a part of the Holiday 2010 collection and then I believe they must have rereleased it. I tried buying it in May when we went to Vegas but they didn’t have it in stores yet. For my birthday I decided to treat myself to this lipstick by ordering it from Neiman Marcus. I’ve tried the Glossimer lip glosses by Chanel before but I’ve never worn their lipsticks. I have to say, it was worth the money.
Magnolia is a medium pink with a subtle shimmer and a glossy finish. The formula is extremely light-weight. I almost forget I’m wearing lipstick when I have this on. After applying, the color feels like it melts and absorbs into lips and becomes a gorgeous, natural-looking pink. This shade is perfect for everyday wear and has earned a spot in my list of favorite daily lipsticks (my other daily faves are MAC Creme Cup, MAC Snob, CoverGirl Delish, NARS Chelsea Girls and Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake). I’ll post reviews and swatches of these other faves soon!
At $32.50 (plus the $9 shipping fees I paid!), this lipstick was a splurge for me but you definitely get what you pay for. This is a high-quality formula with beautiful color that’s extremely comfortable to wear.
What do you think of Magnolia? Have you tried Chanel Coco Rouge lipsticks?
