    Chanel Lipstick

    Editor's Note

    The idea that you can have a lipstick for life is a fairly new concept, but this unique design is one of true beauty. Rouge Beige is my personal favourite - the slightly pink pearly beige is inspired by the beige satin evening dresses created by Gabrielle CHANEL, a colour borrowed from the day to illuminate the night. The glide-on formula goes on like a dream, and thanks to the Gardenia oil, it's nourishing for the lips too! If you need any more convincing, this lipstick was spotted everywhere during award season.  

    Your mum will love this - talk about a gift that's basically an heirloom! CHANEL has launched the refillable lipstick of dreams - and the first to feature glass packaging, Four years in the making to turn the seemingly fragile case into a sturdy one, it's the ultimate chic gift. There are 12 shades to choose from, and you literally cannot make a wrong choice.
