Colour Crush: Tangerine Lips


  1. A small citrus fruit with a loose skin, esp. one of a variety with deep orange-red skin.
  2. A deep orange-red colour.

I am not really one for bright lips but I knew it was time to mix up the nude lips I have been sporting lately and after I found a fabulous coral/tangerine and turquoise necklace I knew it was time... I spent almost a good hour strolling through the isles of Priceline and covered most of the back side of my hand in stripes of different shades and textures without much luck...and where I did found a lippy that was almost right, I couldn't find the lip liner to match. If there is ever a time to wear lip-iner its with bright or strong coloured lips because that is the time your lips are most defined.

I knew what colour I was after and wanted a strong matte shade... My journey continued to Gloss where my eyes went straight to the Chi Chi range of bright matte lipsticks...and hooray for the matte lip liners!

I picked up the lipstick called "you had me a hello" and the "stay on lip liner" in "status"... It claimed to be long-wearing, stayproof and smudgeproof and it really lived up to all those things, even after a few glasses of red wine...   

Paraben free and made in Germany - (it has got to be good if it is made in Germany-right?) it was a winner with me. The pink and black lipstick packaging was also totally cute!

P.S.: I applied the lipstick first with the lipliner on top to get the most seamless colour match (why they don't just sell the matching liner I'll never know!). Enjoy xx
