Julie Hewett Coco Noir applied
You need a lipbrush with this lipstick; it's extremely pigmented, and absolutely not a slap it on from the tube kind of red (if you're looking for one of those, Chanel's new Rouge Cocos are a good bet.) Although it is very pigmented, I don't find it drying on my lips, and the colour stays where I put it.
Coco Noir is a deep brick red. My lips are pale and mauve, so it reads as a dark blood red on me; if your lips are less anaemic and have more flesh/warm tones you'll most likely see more of the brick tones. Coco Noir is a striking red, but the brick tones make it quite wearable in my opinion. You can see my post picturing all the Noir lipsticks I own and swatches on my arm here.
