HI HI, This entry will feature the new CHANEL ROUGEL ALLURE INK – these are available 1 September 2016, SG$49 each.
After the Fall 2016 collection, Lucia Pucia and the Makeup Creation Studio continues to pay homage to the colour red by reintepreting its role in an original way.
ROUGE ALLURE INK is a matte liquid lip colour, which is a new style in CHANEL lipsticks – it has an extremely comfortable velvet soft texture, intense and luminous finish. Like an ink, it instantly and weightlessly fuses with the lips to leave a lasting imprint.
The packaging is sleek, and compact, with the frosted glass case which allows you to see the actual colour of the product. The applicator is soft and velvety, and makes for an effortless application.
I have here 5 shades with me
140 Amoureux – a beige nude which is almost just like my lip colour
144 Vivant – a red with coral undertones
148 Libere – a warm red with orangey undertone
152 Choquant – a true red with slightly blue undertone
154 Experimente – a deep red
My thoughts and comparisons:
I have been wearing these lip colours for a few weeks, and they remind me the most of the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro – though I must say the GA ones are thicker and more intense. But they both have that velvety matte smooth lip colour and smooth formulation in common, with the Chanel ones being more lightweight. If compared to the NARS Velvet Lip Glide (which I reviewed here) – the Chanel ones dry and set to a more matte finish. One thing for sure, among these three high end brands I have mentioned, they are easy to apply, and reapply – they are not the most long lasting especially compared to the new generation of matte liquid lipsticks (like the Kat Von D ones – my review here, or the MAC Retro Matte liquid lip colours, or all the other matte liquid lipsticks out there). BUT this lack of longevity is not a bad thing. For one thing, the Chanel ones are way way more comfy to wear. The other day I was wearing one of the ABH liquid lipsticks, and found it so dry I had to wipe them away before I even reach my destination. But these Chanel ones, or the NARS ones, I can wear them for the whole day, and it is okay. They won’t stain your lips, and they are easy to clean up and touch up. I would say the Chanel lip colours will last a few hours, and they are easy to build up.
In terms of application, these can be a tad streaky, so go slowly and apply smooth even layers for a more uniformed finish.
I have enjoyed wearing these, and if you have been wanting to jump on the liquid lipsticks wagon, but put off by the crazy dry matte ones out on the market, you should definitely try out the new Chanel ones.
Chanel has released a range of safe classic colours – not surprisingly and with the exception of a nude, the rest are various shades of red which will suit every skintone.

As you can see here, the swatches took a few minutes to dry down and appear matte.
