[Dior] Calypso (#158)

Calypso. I’ve neglected this for years and don’t know why. Maybe the mention of “Gloss” scared me away because I expected a jelly which would need at least four coats … The colour is red.

It’s indeed a bit sheer (but dries quickly). This ist three thin coats.

[Chanel] Pirate (#08), 2016 formula

Just uploaded new pictures and thought, why not posting Pirate? It’s one of my favourite reds and I love the crelly formula as well as its colour. Here is the new formulated Pirate.

Wheather is crazy by the way. It’s noon now and we’ve already had a super dark sky with thunderstorms, while the sun is shining at the moment, with temperatures expecting to rise up to 30 degrees celsius. 😎 We’ll see, I’m going out later.

[Chanel] Emblématique (#572)

Dark cherry red or more blood red? In any case, Emblématique is a beautiful colour and my current favourite red.

Two coats shown below (this is artifial light); the formula is on the jelly side (“crelly” actually, hence a jelly/crème hybrid) but gets opaque easily.

[Essence] Miss Frost

Yes … that’s wa winter release. I got this for Christmas from my daughter, and since I am into reds, Miss Frost is a beautiful addition to my stash. The red contains a tad of raspberry and also a visible shimmer – but overall the finish is matte!

Two coats shown below. No top coat of course. 😉
