Happy National Lipstick Day beauties!

Let’s answer the long time debate – is the kiss the “X” or the “O”? Because I think it’s the “O” like the shape of your lips. However! I use “xx” and in my mind I think it’s “kiss kiss” but really, if I signed off with “OO” that wouldn’t look as endearing!

Chanel sent over 3 shades for my skin tone (medium/olive) and they were shades I’d pick out for myself!


I thought I’d break it up into 3 different must have lipstick looks because while I have a huge obsession with lipsticks – I love accessorizing my lips, there are three categories you need for lipstick!

From now through July 30, Chanel is including a 4 shade lip sample in all orders – you have today and tomorrow! Also free shipping for orders over $50 at Chanel, always. Aside from their bags and beauty, I love their nail polish too!

1 / The everyday hydrating shade

We all have our every day go to shade that goes with nearly everything – it just compliments our skin tone. This shade is very hydrating, I like to use this color on the outer parts of my lips and leave the inside a bit lighter for dimension.

2 / The velvety pop of color

When you want to stand out just a bit or you don’t have time to do your eye makeup, swiping on a fun color will do the trick! I’m not wearing any eye makeup – just concealer on my lids and of course my eyelash extensions.

I love bold colors, I want to collect every color under the sun! The Rouge Allure lipsticks pop out of their cases which I love! It glides on with a velvet finish.


It’s the elegant details, oh Chanel.

3 / The Stay on all Day and Night Lip

Because eating, drinking, talking, long nights with your love or girl gang means lots of photos and you need to keep lips on! I swiped this on before one of my best girlfriend’s bachelorette dinner party and it stayed on all night – no color on my glass and even when I brushed my teeth my lips were still red!

Swipe the long-lasting color then add on the high-shine gloss for shine and superb hydration! This look is great if you love shiny lips.

    Love their Rouge Velvet line of lipsticks. I have La Favorite, too. They really are long-lasting. I sometimes have to use their make-up remover to clean it off when I get home. :)

    P.S. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here, but hi!

    • Diana Elizabeth

      Hiii Mailinh! I love that you have the same lipstick color :) You must be busy! Hope you’re having a good summer!

    X is kiss to me! O reminds me of arms hugging someone, arms encircling them!
