Totes Bond-like packaging - you're either one click away from plush, kissable lips or unwittingly blowing up the likes of Nick Nack, Jaws or Oddjob. Whatever you do, duck if you should ever lock your gaze upon a flying hat.

Lippie lovers will experience a love/hate relationship with the sleek, black lacquered tube. It's fun, functional, but doesn't offer any clarity or a window into its soul. Want to know which colour you've plucked out of your bag? Flip that tube over and take a peek at the label. If you're looking for a transparent lover, Dior's Fluid Stick or Armani's Flash Lacquer might be safer bets, that's if you've got a hankering for luxe makeup.

What Chanel has here is a gloss cross lipstick. Highly pigmented, loads of shine, a hint of tackiness (me thinks for staying power), complete with a stained finish prior to expiring around hour four.

"A gloss for women who love lipstick.

Supreme 17 is a bottled version of Strawberry Shortcake. It's as if she was set loose in the factory and left to her own devices. A blue based berry glace, sans whipped cream.
