Chanel Rouge a Levre creme lipstick: Escapade Desert Rose


This might be from the 1990's or the 2000's - either way, it has gone rancid!  This appears to be the only lipstick to escape the great purge of 2009, probably because the case is in such excellent condition - I thought it was a lot newer than it is.  It's a gorgeous color, so much so that I tried to wear it despite its age, but the smell and taste were too much even for me.  All photos were taken indoors next to a window for natural light.

Can you see why it breaks my heart to have to throw it out?  Beautiful, creamy texture, good wear time, and a gorgeous color.  Sigh.
