I bought this one, Empreinte, last summer - it's an elegant nude with a subtle gold shimmer. The shade is very versatile and while the colour is delicate and understated, there's a slight peachy undertone that, along with the golden flecks, serves to lift and warm my complexion. Like all the lipsticks in this line, it's semi-transparent and very soft and shiny, so it glides effortlessly onto the lips.
Because it's so soft, you do need to regularly reapply - but with it's sleek packaging and trademark Chanel glamour, pulling this baby out of your bag is no hardship at all. Slick it on straight from the tube - the soft and balm-like texture is easy to apply on the go, and feels nice and hydrating to wear.
Empreinte was a limited edition but there are some similarly elegant shades in the core range. And the new shades, launching on April 5th, will include nudes, corals, pinks and reds so there's bound to be one that will capture your heart. From the pictures I've seen, I know there are a couple that have already captured mine.
These will be €30.50 - think you'll be investing, or do you already own anything from the line?
