I have been waiting for months for Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet lip colour and was delighted to see it in store here in Berlin. In typical Miss Claret style I went for the most red shade, number 38 - La Fascinante. Not quite as matte as I thought it would be, but a lovely cherry red nonetheless.
I am currently in Berlin and have just discovered an amazing make up brand called Kiko : Make Up Milano. Kiko's products are very reasonably priced and the selection is good - something for everyone! I purchased a velvet mat lipstick in colour 605 (an orange red coral) and was very impressed. The lipstick is made in Italy, is a velvet matte formula, pigment rich and blends like a dream. Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, I found this this particular product to be very moisturising. Kiko have an excellent range of colours and having worn this product the last few days, I will be buying the other reds I saw. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this brand, I'd certainly recommend checking it out.
