Ruby Tuesday



I thought you'd like to see a very special gift given to me by my sister-in-law, Grace. It's a new Chanel Sheer Colour Lipshine called "Panerea." Panarea is one of the Aeolian Islands that sits in the Mediterranean Sea of the coast of Sicily. Today it has become a premier vacation spot for the glitterati.

My sister-in-law was born there some years ago. She left Panarea with her Mom, Dad, 2 sisters and a brother back in the 1950s and has lived in the United States ever since.

Chanel makes some pretty colors! Noting is more fun than a lipstick. I alwyas feel special when I'm sporting new lips...

Robin said...

How glamorous to have a luscious lipstick shade named after your home town!

Annie said...

Wow, talk about stretching the limits of red. Beautiful shots. The angles you have chosen are as dramatic as the color itself.

Auntie E said...

Oh I love it..I really should wear more lipstick. Hubby love the red ones.

Felisol said...

How cool is that, to have a lipstick with the name of one's hometown.
I like that deep shade of red.
Darling daughter brought me a Chanel lipstick from London. by the name of Rouge Allure.
It's so soft and creamy.
Matching perfectly to my garden red hands!

Can't beat this, Mary! What a gorgeous shade of red and just the name *Panerea* sounds so romantic to this Italian girl's ear. Many thanks for sharing :O)

Manang Kim said...

RRT~Garbage can

Greyscale Territory said...

Those lipstick colours have an exotic tone to them! Must unusual with a hint of hushed mystery!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Panarea -- I am leaving now to look it up (the Island, not the lipstick -- I think I'm too pale and wimpy to get away with wearing that dramatic color.) But I learned something today - having never heard of Panarea before.

You ARE a good teacher !!

Hootin' Anni said...

I love that rich, deep purple shade [at least it looks purple through my monitor!]

I wish I was part of the glitterati!! I need to be on an island, rich in culture and beaches galore. Fine food, fine dining, and a bit of nighttime entertainment with glitz & glamour. Awwww, to dream.

My Ruby Tuesday will be up at Midnight Central Daylight time. Or maybe earlier, if I get it finished. LOL

Lindz said...

classic, very sweet

Mimi said...

They sure look good in the case, but I don't think I'd wear the purple- look better on a teen!

Ruby said...

visiting here before i sign-off! thanks for sharing these images! cool lipstick!

Pagan Sphinx said...

The lipcolor sounds expensive and I'll bet it's luscious! I also love, love, love your header photo of the field of poppies.

My post is photos taken by my fiance during a business trip to Zurich last week.

Take care and thanks for your faithful hosting of RT!

Jan said...

Bet you look great in this color.

EG Wow said...

How thoughtful of Grace! So are you going to show us what it looks like on your lips? :)

The Cunning Runt said...

That's pretty classy! How do these colors work for you? I know some women glow with certain colors and others, not so much.

At any rate, thanks for these photos and their back-story!

Lipstick can be great fun, if the color is right! I had to enter this - my Mom and daughter's name is Ruby!

napaboaniya said...

Now apply some on your lips have and head out for a night downtown! :)

Miss. Clippy said...

Rich, dramatic colors! Takes a bold woman like you to wear such bold colors! :D And Chanel, how luxurious!

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

EastCoastLife said...

You should apply the lipstick, take a picture of your lips and put it up for Ruby Tuesday. :P

How lovely to have a lipstick named after one's hometown. I would love that too.

♥ Kathy said...

Those are pretty Mary :) Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Ann said...

All the people in Panarea should claim some patent money from CC.

Gattina said...

Wow, what a lipstick ! looks rather brown then red to me. I never wear lipsticks, it just doesn't suit me.
Panarea must have been very poor in the 50th, no wonder that so many Sicilians left their country. Lots of them imigrated to Belgium too, to work in the coal mines.

Terry said...

Hi, Mary! Just found your meme-- I knew about bookish memes but didn't know there were photo memes-- I'm a bit of a newbie. Why there must be millions of memes for every category of blog-- the mind boggles!

I've linked up my first photo! How exciting!

:o)
