Owning a Luxurious Lipstick

I can’t be the only one who is filled with joy every time I purchase a new piece of makeup, especially something from a luxury brand. There is something so satisfying about finally visiting a counter, after lusting after a product for so long. You’re handed a branded bag, the best being Chanel, and you hurry to unbox the lipstick, the bullet pristine in its condition. It makes me so happy I might as well skip out of the shop.

To me, owning a luxury lipstick is an extension of how I want to be seen. It’s the moments, when you can pull out your designer lipstick in its glossy and chic packaging and show your friends. Or when you are asked at a bar, the colour and brand of your lipstick, and you can casually comment, ‘oh this, it's Chanel…’

Call me vain but I have expensive taste, and well, why wouldn’t you want to strive to own the best of the best? Owning higher end items gives you that self-satisfaction and I know I’m not the only one that feels this.
Chanel La Raffinee Lipstick Review
Makeup geeks like myself will pour over the little touches. This Chanel lipstick has engraved double C’s on the end of the casing, as well as Chanel imprinted on the bullet. Not only that, it has a push click bullet, so you push the gold end in and the black casing pops up.

I choose a very wearable shade named La Raffinee, so I can get a good ‘cost per wear’. It's a rose matte shade, which goes with any makeup look. It's similar to other lipsticks in my collection, which cost a fraction of the price but it’s a little luxurious treat. Something to savour and appreciate.

That was a large paragraph trying to justify my luxurious lipstick treat really, wasn’t it? How do you talk yourself around? What luxury purchase do you adore?



  1. Such a beautiful shade and I adore their packaging :)


  2. Fab post lovely, I have to agree there’s just something so satisfying about buying luxury makeup. This shade looks so gorgeous, I’m lusting after one of the new CT lipsticks so may just need to treat myself ;)

  3. I always feel so fancy when applying my Tom Ford or Burberry Lipsticks. You're right, there is something to be said for the experience. Plus I have never found a pigment to last better than my Burberry Velvet lipsticks.
