Monday... Rue Cambon and red lipstick

I LOVE this address: 31 Rue Cambon.  When I visited Chanel's boutique in Paris for the first time,  it was Sunday, and as I captured on my picture above, it was closed.  Yes, in Paris most of the stores closed on Sunday and now I know it.  Oh, well, I came back on Monday and had FUN $$$ shopping there.  One of the items I bought was their limited addition red lipstick that has some gold sparkles in it - Byzantin.  It's bright cherry red color with blue undertone that makes your teeth look whiter.  What can I say,  it is beautiful.  I have to mention though, even with Chanel quality lipsticks, I still have to use lip base product to insure lipstick stays on my lips without "sinking in" and loosing true color.  I use Guerlain KissKiss Lip Lift primer and it solves this problem.  Is it my lips or other people has the same issues with red lipsticks?

  1. I love the street sign, how there is a history with it. Looks like it might have been moved once.
