Coral crush - Bobbi Brown & Chanel

Two of my newest makeup purchases include the lovely Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Nectar and Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Exotic 21. I love the peachy coral tones and have been wearing these together with a little nude cream eyeshadow and lashings of my black Buxom mascara.

The shimmer brick can be used as single colours or sweep a brush through them all for a beautiful coral/golden shimmer. I have also been favouring using the champagne shade (second from top) as a highlighter above my cheek bones.

Same swatches in sunlight, I love the golden shimmer through them

Nothing makes me feel more glamorous than wearing Chanel and this lipstick is no exception. I have been looking for a coral colour and Exotic has the perfect amount of peach and orange for me. It has a gorgeous satin finish and wears well on the lips, perfect for day or night.
