These Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks are the workhorses in my collection: they work hard for little recognition. I can run out the door, grab one of these ‘my lips but better’ lipsticks, and they will look great with a range of different looks. They have a similar consistency to YSL’s Rouge Pur line, in that they are beautifully moisturising, come in a great range of colours, provides full coverage, and have fabulous packaging, but the Chanel Rouge Allures stay on for much longer without drying your lips out at all. As an added bonus, the ‘click-click’ ninja packaging is great fun to use.
Admirable (LE) is the lighest of the three, and is great to pair with a dramatic smokey eye or to wear when you’re having a fairly relaxed day. It’s a soft light pink colour which gives your lips natural colour without overdoing it. Available from bevhasitall64 for USD $34.99 including shipping to Australia.
Flash Quartz (LE) is a pinky-peachy-brown (slightly darker than Admirable) and is my favourite of all of them. It is a lipstick that you can wear day or night, and is a versatile, middle-of-the-road colour. It’s not nearly as shimmery as it appears in the packaging,so don’t be too worried about sparkles. Available from one of my favourite sellers, kakale, for USD $21.99 including shipping to Australia.
Silhouette is the darkest, and is a pinky-brown-mauve colour that looks gorgeous in winter with a neutral eye. Great for work or for dressing up an outfit. Only available from your local Chanel counter for now, because no-one is selling them online. I’ll let you know when one pops up again.
