ROUGE ALLURE VELVET: LA FASCINANTE

ROUGE ALLURE VELVET IN SHADE: LA FASCINANTE


According to Chanel:

ROUGE ALLURE invents ROUGE ALLURE VELVET: luminous matte lip colour.

ROUGE ALLURE VELVET creates another way to wear lipstick. An alternative to shine.

Velvety soft and more comfortable than any matte lipstick before, it adorns lips with deep colours and an intensely luminous matte finish.
As moisturising as a satiny lipstick, it feels as weightless as a second skin.

One click releases it from its black lacquered case.








Review:

This range of lipsticks come in 8 different shades. Today the one I am reviewing is LA FASCINANTE, shade #38.

The packaging of this lipstick is very chic, and that’s what attracted me to this lipstick at first when I saw it at a chanel counter. Sleek black tube with golden magnetic click bullet, with interlocking Cs you click that and an amazing red colour lipstick comes out. To be honest, this lipstick is love at first sight.

The colour is a classic matte red with pink undertones, perfect for a night out, it can also be worn during the day if you apply it with a light hand.
I sometimes wear it during the day if I am going out somewhere, and always at night, it is my everyday lipstick, more like every night out lipstick, because of it being matte and non drying at the same time. Plus the colour ends up being so gorgeous on my lips, it does not make my teeth look yellow. In the tube it looks more like dark deep brick red, but it shows on my lips as a very beautiful everyday red.

The staying power of this lipstick is amazing too, lasts me hours before I have to reapply, that too only if I have eaten anything, and then when it is half on and half removed it still shows up as a very pretty deep pinkish colour.

The texture of this lipstick is very unique which I haven’t found in any of the M.A.C lipsticks either that I have used. It is matte and not drying at the same time, and glides on lips like a dream. Feels very creamy, and gives a matte look. It actually feels like velvet just as the name say.

There are so many ways in which this lipstick can be worn, wear it as a full red color at night with winged liner or just black liner. Wear it lightly at day time, dab it with a tissue for a more subtle look, or wear with a gloss for a totally different colour.





P.S All swatch pictures are in daylight. 


Points in Favour:


  1. Amazing color pay-off.
  2. Non drying formula. Keeps the lips hydrated.
  3. Beautiful and travel friendly packaging.
  4. Click opening, so will not open by mistake in handbag.

Points not in favour:

Its expensive, but you are putting it on your lips so you would make sure its good quality.

Availability: Can be bought online from Facebook pages. I got mine from duty free chanel counter.
