Lip Service: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Distinguee)

I was pretty skeptical about this color out the gate. La Distinguee is the latest Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick to become available in the United States (it was previously released in Asia, I believe). It’s hailed as a nude-peach (which can translate in to ashy pink) color. But I ordered it from Chanel anyway… and hoped for the best. I was happy to find out that it was a little darker in person, actually complimented my warm skin tone.

Like the other Rouge Allure Velvet lipsicks, this one goes on silky and sets to a beautiful semi-matte finish.

Now, it does pull pink on me (it’s not nude or peach on me by any stretch of the imagination), but it still wears soft and flattering. I like it. You can find out more about Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Distinguee HERE.

FOTD: MUFE Aqua Shadow (Grey)

For my first practical go with the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow Pencils, I chose the matte grey color. I layered it with a shimmer cream to see if there would be any break in the formula. There wasn’t. I applied this makeup at 8:00 in the morning, and didn’t take it off until 7:30 in the evening. It held all day with no creasing, no fading, and no need for touch ups.
