Chanel's new line, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, has been really hyped. Being a lover of Chanel is one thing, but I am not really into makeup. However, when I saw that the names of many of the colors in this new line were named after several facets of Ms. Coco's life, I became intrigued. Then my friend saw it: a shade called "Boy." #54, Boy, is pink and named after Coco's one great love, Arthur "Boy" Capel, and Englishman who died tragically in a car accident. Coco never married, but I also believe she never forgot about her lost Boy. With such an affinity for black, it seems like Chanel forever mourns him.
That's why I like that this color is so pink, so full of life, so happy. It reminds me of being in love; it reminds me of the first time I kissed a boy. I had to buy this lipstick. If you're like me and don't wear a lot of makeup, all you really need is lipstick anyway. These shades are a bit of a splurge, but the quality and the feeling of having a boy pressed up against your lips is worth it. If you're going to splurge on lipstick, it might as well be Chanel.
