La Maliceuse

It’s a phrase that we all love to hate, but a look we’re continually seeking to perfect. For those days when you’re not feeling a bright pop of colour, but still need that extra something on your lips before you’re ready to brave the day.  The quest for the perfect shade can be a long and can be expensive. I also wanted something with colour. I am just so used to wearing nude that it get boring, so I swatched many a lipstick which presented the perfect red/pink ratio which I liked but they didn’t have that edge to win me over.

After days of searching I eventually decided to stay away from the high-street, where budget prices tempted me in.

Chanel rouge allure velvet, Luminous Matte Lip Colour in the colour La Maliceuse has to be one of my high end buys but I love it. I bought it after weeks of thorough research, I’m pretty sure I read every review, watched every tutorial, and compared every swatch that the Internet had to offer.  For me I just think Chanel has to be one of my favourites. I love this lipstick, its a gorgeous shade, no blue tint. I can honestly so I didn’t have a gripe about this lip product.

Does Packages influence your beauty purchases?

 

I think so I mean after all first impressions are everything, which I think is important to get the customers in your store. An initial appearance, whether that of a person, place or thing, determines how others perceive someone or something – orderly, messy, cheap, expensive, and so on.

Women have strong ideas about what they want in packaging today.  Women like myself know exactly what appeals to them. If packaging does not meet their requirements, their buying decision is clearly influenced.

Packaging design for women goes far beyond simply making your product a shade of pink. To me the package has to be Elegant not messy. I also think Text is important as well when capturing the eye of a woman again for me it has to be elegant.

However looks can be deceiving, if your going to order online do your research about the product your buying.
