Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet - matte finish reinvented!

Your lips and nails are going matte this fall thanks to a new lipstick from Chanel - Rouge Allure Velvet as well as a velvet top coat for nails.

The lipstick has an innovative formula that combines the mattifying and smoothing power of silicone microbeads with the luminosity of ultra-thin mother-of-pearl particles for shine-free lips with rich and radiant colour. This isn't your mother's cakey, dry matte lipstick though, Rouge Allure Velvet contains a jojoba oil derivative to make it emollient, weightless and moisturizing.

La Distinguée - beige with peach accents
La Raffinée - fresh bright rosewood
L'Exubérante - intense, luminous pink

  2. I am very curious to see how the lip colours will translate IRL, they sound pretty on paper.

  3. Stay tuned for swatches and you can be the judge of that! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie
