Maybe it was the name - rue de Rivoli is one of the grand boulevards in Paris, pierced through the heart of the city by Napolean Bonaparte, destroying a great swath of the medieval city that was in its way while at the same time creating in its place a beautiful, modern street that I fell in love with so many years ago. Maybe it was just the deep cranberry shade. But whatever it was, when I saw my friend Sheryl wearing Chanel's Rivoli lipstick over brunch a few weeks ago, I fell in love. I bought my own tube the same afternoon - I already had this outfit on my mind as I took my receipt from the salesgirl at the Chanel counter. It sounds a bit silly now that I'm writing it all out, but I am still so head over heels in love with this lipcolour that I've worn it practically every day since. Sometimes, when it's meant to be, you just know.
