I love the look of the new Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick line, but a new lipstick – no matter how beautiful – is really not what my makeup collection needs right now. Thus, I’ve been ‘shopping my stash’ a bit of late, and this is my latest find.
Allure in ‘Sexy’ is a great option if you want to experiment with a red lipstick, but prefer the safety of a red-berry rather than a Hollywood Siren red like Rouge Allure ‘Audace’ or ‘Ming’ in Rouge Allure Laque. It’s also good if you feel like wearing a red but can’t be bothered with a lipliner, or you just want a red-stained lip. Also, if you are fair, this isn’t going to scream ‘look at my red lipstick’ – it’s not too garish at all. On me, this is a ‘my-lips-but-better’ look, so it’s very easy to throw on during summer or winter. It does have a little shimmer, as you can see in the photograph above, but in true Chanel fashion it’s only enough to make you look healthy rather than over the top.
The forumla is non drying and very pigmented, and the novelty ‘click-click’ packaging doesn’t hurt either.
Rouge Allure ‘Sexy’ is available from BeautyEncounter.com* for USD $28 plus $25.95 shipping to Australia. If you live outside the US and you want to save on shipping, try a package forwarding service like MyUS.com.
*Incidently, if you’ve been trying to track down any discontinued cosmetics or skincare from high-end brands and Ebay has been a dead end, BeautyEncounter.com may be a good place to try.
