Cat That Got The (Chanel) Cream!

Admittedly the title of this post gives the impression that I've won the lottery and have gone on a massive shopping spree in Chanel- I'll tell you now that (unfortunately!) I haven't. I have, on the other hand, invested in a decent quality lipstick. I recently got my staff discount which means that I get discount in a certain large department store, including on the makeup counters!
I realised once I got on the bus that if the students from the secondary school near my house were walking home as I walked to my house, I would be wearing my school uniform (somehow my school has a reputation for being very posh and religious, so many schools dislike us haha) and carrying a Chanel shopping bag, so I would be a bit of a target! Luckily, I didn't see anyone.
The lady behind the counter was really nice and helped me to decide on a shade, and packaged it nicely as well in this Chanel tissue paper. I wanted a lipstick which was neutral enough that I can wear it everyday, but still colourful enough so that you can tell it's there, and I think I've found it with this shade. I was a little worried when I first got it home that it was too neutral, and so wouldn't even be noticeable, but dad could tell that I had it on so i'm convinced, haha!

Excuse the shiny-ness of my face and weird greenish tint (?!), but I hope you can get a sense of the lipstick colour here. It really isn't much different from my natural lip colour to be honest, but just enough so that you can see it's there.
