Chanel Rouge Noir (Vamp) Lip Liner and Rouge Allure Lipstick are items that allow you to celebrate your inner Goth… elegantly. The rich brown-red color is perfect for the Autumn/Winter season.
One note about the Rouge Noir pencil… it might not say it’s waterproof, but it is. I tried to wipe it off my arm after the swatch and it would not budge. Here’s what happened when I scrubbed the area with regular hand soap and water and a cotton ball:
I finally had to get the rest off with makeup remover and a fresh cotton ball.
I love both of these items. You can find out more about Chanel Rouge Noir Lip Products HERE.
The Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in ‘Fabulous’ is… well… Fabulous. But this post comes with a disclaimer: I have no idea why the color pulled ‘pink’ in the photos. It’s not. It’s more of a mauve-toned golden color. I was quite taken with it the minute I swatched it. Take a look:
I like the color because it wears soft, and I can use it on myself and a wide range of other skin tones (I’ve already experimented on a fair skinned model). I found the application a ‘little’ heavy, and had to blot. I think that’s because I’m so used to wearing glosses and stains. The lipstick wears creamy and comfortable. Love it.
Remember when I was fussing about ‘Impatiently Waiting’ for my Chanel Byzantine Collection items? At the time, I had NOT purchased the lipstick in the collection, called Byzantin. Well, just talking about it made me want to try it, so I ordered it separately.
It has already arrived.
I have to say, I’m SO GLAD I bought it! It’s a gorgeous shimmering red… and a throwback to classic Chanel colors.
The packaging is similar to the regular Rouge Allure lipsticks, with a push bottom container. The formula is smooth, but not that moisturizing. I tried to put it on completely dry lips and it skipped a bit. So I moisturized first, re-applied, and the lipstick went on beautifully…
Love it! I’m so glad I got it. Now the collection will be complete! The other pieces are set to arrive tomorrow. When they get here, I’ll post pictures and swatches. Ciao for now!
