Chanel Lip Play

I don't usually wear lip stick. Always been a C.O.Bigelow kind of girl.

Lip gloss and 5 coats of mascara is all I am accustomed to.

Chanel rouge allure velvet lip colour

This is the new lip colour line for fall. It dresses the lip up in deep, matte and luminous colour; an alternative to shine.

It claims to be velvety and soft, as well as moisturizing.

I was in an adventurous spirit and decided to try it on when I was at The Bay.

The make-up artist applied the lipstick expertly. Part of the reason why I never ventured into lipstick land is my fear of failure. Don't want to end up looking like a clown.

Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick

The packaging is sleek and classic. Made me reminisce about playing with my mother's make up.

She chose the following shade for me.

40 La Sensuelle

It went on smooth and amazing. It did not feel dry at all. No false advertisement here after all.

For the rest of the day, I pranced around with bold red berry lips and simple clean eyes.

The lipstick has really great staying power as well. I did not have re-apply even once. It even lasted eating, drinking and kissing.

Still contemplating on buying it though. will I wear it often enough to make it worth it?

Buying lipstick, why does it all of a sudden feel like such a grown up decision?

  1. I totally have a girl crush on you, Jasmine! I never really wear lipstick either because my lips are always dry. Did you put on lip balm before the lippy?

  2. Oh Vonnie, *blush* I <3 you.

    I apply my typical lip gloss pretty liberally. If I don't then my lips totally dry up. But I did not apply anything before the lipstick.

    That thing is amazing. My lips didn't dry out and the colour stayed on all day!

    But it is a bit of a splurge at $40.00 a pop. hence why I have not purchased it yet.

  3. you look amazing with that color! i can never pull off red as it looks horrible on me hahhaha, but ure pretty with it!

  4. Thanks Stella. You looks awesome with soft pink and nude colours though. I don't think I can pull those off haah
