“I want to have the red lipstick that Chanel has chosen for me,” said Lucia Pica

You'll be putting your best pout forward with the new Chanel Collection Libre and its curated lineup of Numéro Rouges that makes red the only lipcolour you'll want to wear this season. Literally translated to 'number lipstick', the classic scarlet hue has been reinterpreted into shades 1, 2, 3, and 4 — and each numeral is tailor-made with a unique undertone to suit every woman. Not to mention, the typical black casing has also been given a new, flaming paintjob to match the lipstick inside (hello, collector's alert). Inspired by Mademoiselle Gabrielle who was never without her red pout, Numéro Rouges is the notion that a red lipstick is a personal beauty signature, iconic and indispensable.

A timeless mainstay, the four-piece edit delivers intense pigment that goes on effortlessly, playing up the allure of being bold yet simple, and glamourous yet elegant. In crafting the ultimate red lippies, Pica also envisioned an exclusive makeup collection around them with eye, cheek and nail goodies acting as a sort of 'supporting cast' to your crimson pout. You have a palette of five shadows that go from a soft beige-pink to deep aubergine and emerald green to create classic eye looks, be it natural or smoked out. The same colour codes extend to the blush and nail polishes; with a vivid orange-red that really pops on the cheeks for the former, and the latter in buttery-smooth crème lacquers of black, forest green and flashy coral. And if it's some makeup inspo you're wanting, just scroll back up and make like Lily-Rose Depp rocking a flawless glamour wearing the Collection Libre Numéro Rogues look.
