Coo-ee! Hiya! 😀
Hope you’re all keeping well during my enforced break and discovering, or in my case, rediscovering some beauty goodies. One of the things I rediscovered was just how much I like the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks. It’s quite something for me, because in general, I haven’t had a lot of luck with Chanel lipsticks (I find them a bit drying for me) and matte lipsticks in general (too drying and makes my lips look too lined).
But for some reason, these work for me.
I find it quite fascinating, because I wouldn’t personally pick a matte lipstick at any time of day. My choices always gravitate towards those that offer shine and a touch of gloss. The texture of the Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks are, like their names imply, like velvet. The lipstick in tube has a satiny velvety look, with a touch of shine to it. What that means also, is that when applied, I don’t find it to be fully matte. Like velvet, there is a general matte finish, but with a bit of a sheen that I find flattering. Chanel calls it a “luminous matte” and while it sounds rather oxymoronic, I tend to agree.
