I have been a bit late with this post but i still want to review the latest lipstick from Chanel.
Rouge Allure Ink lip colours are the newest in the Chanel lipstick line up. They are matte and deeply pigmented and are following the latest trend of matte liquid lipsticks.
I wanted the deeper pink shade that is 150 Luxuriant. It is a lovely, deep pink with a slight Fucshia/red edge to it, without being over bearing for day wear. Great with a minimal eye look.
The lipstick comes in a frosted glass bottle. Very simple and classy, as you would expect from Chanel.
The applicator is tapered and very easy to use and control on the lips.
The lipstick is very silky to apply and packs an intense punch of colour that can be built up. When it ‘sets’ down, it leaves a matte slightly satin finish to the lips without looking very dry. Something Chanel does very well with all its matte lipsticks. It also doesn’t feel sticky or show any dry patches on my lips either.
How does it wear?
I loved the finish of the lipstick itself and it stays put for hours through drinking.
It never sets down completely, in some respects, this is a very good thing; however, i found this one didn’t work very well through eating. It just looked so patchy and not in a good way.
When you eat through an ordinary lipstick, the lipstick will wear off from the inside of the lip outwards. This gives a line around the lip of colour where the lipstick and pencil still remain. With the Ink liquid, i had patches of colour all over the lips and it also went a tiny bit over my lip line too, which didn’t look very appealing.
The other thing is; do not apply a lip plumper under this colour because it will never set at all. You need to apply on to dry lips. It doesn’t feel drying in any way on the lips though.
I love the application and the intensity of the lip colour. It feels great to apply and never leaves the lips feeling dry.
I just hate the way it wears off when eating food and i can’t see myself rushing out to buy another one unless, it comes in a fab colour i need.
The thing is; Chanel make a fantastic range of Rouge Allure Matte lipsticks. They wear beautifully and feels very velvety on the lips and wear off evenly.
The real saving grace of this lip colour is, the pigment is nothing short of fantastic. It is lovely and even in application and i don’t regret buying this very flattering shade at all.
Have you tried the Chanel Rouge Ink lip colour yet?
Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
