Chanel’s Rouge Noir is a tres famous colour, brought to light by Uma Thurman in (one of my favourite film’s) Pulp fiction.
Sadly the polish does not give one the ability to bust a move like Mia Wallace, as shown below.
Alas, I digress.
The polish is what I’d call a classic, timeless colour – vampy red that just screams cool.
Here it is in all its glory. Two coats of pure-awesomeness.
I think it’s a ‘mature’ colour, I love it. This bottle is actually Mama Laurzrah’s because I used my bottle all up, and never got round to replacing it – I found a cheaper alternative.
Now, I slightly tricked you, because on my index finger I am in fact wearing an entirely different polish – can you tell the difference? I can’t.
The polish is Max Factor’s Ruby Fruit, a snip at £5.99 compared to Chanel’s price tag of £17.50.
There are quite a few Rouge Noir dupes floating around, but this is the best I’ve seen – if anything it’s shinier and better than Chanel. It also doesn’t chip as quickly… Chanel polishes do chip sooner than I’d like.
Ruby Fruit is available here for £5.99 – link!
What do you guys think? Any Rouge Noir (or Pulp fiction) fans?
