On Chanel: I would buy anything with the words 'Laque' or 'Lacquered' on them. Referring to the Chanel Rouge Allure Laque (Collection Noirs Obscurs), this jojoba oil rich glossy lacquer for lips promised color punch and endurance. Line the lips with The Body Shop's Lip Line Fixer to prevent color migration.
On MAC: Mac's all black collection, Style Black brings wearing black to another level by letting us wear is without fear of looking too goth. The sheerness in the selection of items in the collection mean greater freedom in layer intensity from a sheer wash to a glossy opaque finish. Glimmerglass (gel formula) lipgloss in Bling Black and Black Fire, and Mineralized Eyeshadows in Young Punk and Gilt by Association are particularly standouts.
