7-Day Lipstick Challenge: Coral.

We've finally come to the last day of the 7-Day Lipstick Challenge and I can't say I'm not thrilled. I really did enjoy rediscovering some of my less-loved lipsticks and experimenting with a few colors that are a bit out of my comfort zone, but it started to feel like a chore to have to take photos of my face everyday by a certain time (to utilize natural light), especially since I'm not used to doing FOTD pictures everyday.

The last color in the challenge is coral. I chose one of my all-time favorite coral lipsticks, Chanel Rouge Allure in Genial, a limited edition shade from the Summer 2010 collection.

Genial is a bright coral that goes on smoothly and feels light on the lips. It's actually much brighter than it appears in these photos, and it's a color best saved for Spring and Summer.

Challenge Complete!

Again, I want to thank Nicola from Magic's in the Makeup for allowing me to borrow her "Lipstick Week" idea. If you haven't already checked out her blog, I strongly encourage you to do so now. Also, if any of you lovely ladies would like to attempt this challenge as well, I urge you to credit Nicola for this fun idea and not me :)


  1. Love this on you!
    Congrats on finishing!


  2. This is extremely flattering on you:)
    I know how you feel, I did a foundation challenge (for myself mostly) and after 4 FOTD I couldn't do any pictures, I was so fed up with it!

    Well done though- you did well x

  3. I love the eyeshadow you have on in this photo- what is it?

    I just adore Rouge Allures, and have been wanting to get Genial after seeing it on models at Chanel Couture fall 2010

  4. I love the colour. I remember trying to find this lipstick but every Chanel counter was sold out.
    I still want to do this challenge but will have to wait til i can get out of bed otherwise it would be a little boring...no makeup and just lipstick.

  5. GOOD JOB! I would die if I tried to do FOTDs 7 days in a row (but I blog like once a month lately, so perhaps that explains it ;))! You look beautiful in every single pic! I have to say, I think my faves may be this one and the pink, although I love the nude too! You just look good in any color :) The eyeshadow with this particular lipstick is stunning!

  6. @Savannah: Thank you so much :)

    @Cheeky Beauty: I felt the same way. It was fun for the first 3 or 4 days and then after that, I didn't want to do it anymore, lol. I'm happy I didn't quit though!

    @Jen W: Thank you! The eyeshadow is Gold Ribbon from the Sleek Sparkle palette :)

    @FunnyFaceBeauty: Yes, please do it too! And feel better soon!

    @ellamarie84: Lol ;) Thank you and surprisingly, I think my personal favorite was the plum/wine shade even though I'd be afraid to actually wear it out in public :)

    @Charming Vanity: Thanks so much :)

  7. this is such pretty color on you :)

  8. This is such a gorgeous colour! I know I just said this to you on twitter but you really do suit all colours! Where as there were two days that were complete fails when I did this! And do you not feel now that you would quite happily not do any FOTDs for a looong time? :D xx

  9. What a lovely color <3. I have to buy a similiar this one. Any ideas? :)

  10. so pretty! what color eyeshadow are you wearing? xo

  11. @Nicola: Yes, that's exactly how I feel! :D

    @sunbeam: YSL Rouge Volupte #27 Rose Paris is very similar :)

    @Heatherette: It's Gold Ribbon from the Sleek Sparkle palette :)
