Well it's official - I have a bad reaction to Chanel Rouge Coco Shines :( r/o

Some of you might remember I bad reaction I had to a lip product a couple of months ago and I wasn't sure if it was the Chanel RCS (Boy), Barry M Lipliner, MAC Lady Danger or NARS Schiap. I was secretly hoping it was Barry M Lipliner which I would have happily thrown away as it didn't cost much.

So I wore no lip products until the reaction subsided (weird reaction like my lips were sunburnt) and slowly re-tried the suspects... Schiap and Lady Danger were in the clear... and last week I tried the RCS only on my bottom lip - and by evening my lips were not happy :(

*sigh* I really like the texture and colour too so I'm very sad. Good news is I'm not allergic to the regular Rouge Coco lipsticks. There must be some plumping ingredient in the RCS because I've reacted badly to plumping ingredients before.

Why, why couldn't it have been the Barry M lip liners!?
