CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet No.39

I recently bought a lipstick, Rouge Allure Velvet, No.39 from Chanel. This is a beautiful dark red colour which is named 'La Somptueuse', meaning extravagant and splendid. It is a matte finish and like the name, has a velvety texture easy to apply on lips. Chanel cosmetics offers subtle shades of red lipstick which give a great start to rouge beginners. I also love the pop-up style packaging!

CÉLINE Tote bag

I now have my new everyday bag from Céline. Beautiful quality lamb skin and gold Céline stamp is as simple and discreet as can be. I had a hard time deciding between bottle green and black. I chose the black at the end.
