The Rouge Allure and the Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks by Chanel are my absolute favorites when it comes to lip products. Where a lot of other brands always tend to either bleed or sink into my lip lines, Chanel doesn’t do any of these things. These lipsticks apply like a dream, don’t dry out and have amazing pigmentation. I’ve collected a few different shades by now and I will probably do a post on them soon. For now, I’d like to focus on the very popular, very dramatic but also timeless classic, Rouge Noir.
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick and Precision Lip Definer in Rouge Noir
Rouge Noir has been around since 1998 and there’s a range of products you can find in this color, including a nail polish, a lip liner, and through the years there have been several different formulas of lipsticks in this color as well (previously under the name Vamp). Rouge Noir is a very deep, blackened burgundy, almost an opaque black but not just quite.
I purchased the Rouge Allure Lipstick in number 109, and the Precision Lip Definer in number 09. On its own, the lipstick is quite tricky to apply. It’s a bit of a hassle to get it applied evenly. I highly recommend getting the lip liner in combination with the lipstick, as this makes application easier and makes the color look deeper and more beautiful. Other than that, these products are the usual high quality you can expect from Chanel. Very long lasting, and a gorgeous shade for those who don’t shy away from a dark vampy lip.
