Chanel 99 "Pirate" Lipstick Swatch + Review (Rouge Allure)


I am in love. Let me just start off by saying that. 

I have owned Chanel products before, and liked them, but found that my skin didn't work too well with them. When browsing through the Cosme-De website I stumbled across the Chanel section and decided to take a peak through the lipsticks, and was really drawn to "Pirate". After endless hours of googling swatches and reading reviews I took the plunge and decided Pirate would be mine.

First of all, the packaging. The packaging, oh my. *Be still my beating heart*. The lipstick comes in a bullet, to eject the lipstick you have to press the gold chanel button on the top and it pops up.

Next up, the smell, I adore the smell of lipsticks, especially MAC and dior, but had never smelt a Chanel one. I was extremely pleased and was left sniffing it all evening, revealing the crazy make-up crazed teen side to me.

I didn't use a lipliner with the lipstick but the shape of the top created such a defined, and polished, look which took less than a minute- Chanel, can you please share your secrets with every lipstick manufacturer in the world? It would make my life so much easier.

The texture is really silky, leaving a slight glisten but not a shine. The colour stayed on for 4-5 hours without re-application but did disappear upon eating, naturally.

I'm obsessed with this lipstick, although it doesn't come cheap at £26, but I think it's completely worth it. HOWEVER, that being said, Cosme-de have very kindly given me a discount code for 10% for ALL of my readers- just use "TALISA10" at the checkout and with this you will also get a free sample of the O'slee "Honey Sugar Mask" AND there is free shipping with my code. Ain't they kind! Buy Pirate here for £23.40.
