About a Boy


Valentine’s Day gift?

This new shade of Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Boy is most definitely a must-have for my makeup bag. Most notably, it is named after Arthur “Boy” Capel, Chanel’s long-time lover and friend who died tragically and left her heartbroken (for more on Gabrielle Chanel’s notorious train-wreck of a love life, see my previous post here). The shade is soft, subtle, and utterly romantic – in other words, effortlessly sexy. French beauty Vanessa Paradis wears it beautifully in the above photo. Now I just need to get my hands on some!

Though the new collection of shining, shimmering lip colors doesn’t hit stores until April, this token shade will be available through February 13 via Chanel boutiques and their website, chanel.com. Oh, if only I had a Valentine to plead for these petit luxuries…
