Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet - L'Exubérante and La Sensuelle swatches!

If you found the news of the new Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet intriguing then you have probably been waiting to see some swatches -  here they are on my very own cute little lips (or as my husband would say - my never-silent piehole)!
L'Exubérante is a bright pink
La Sensuelle is a violet plum

I actually wasn't convinced that I was going to like them - I've found matte lipsticks in the past to be dry feeling and looking - but this one is neither - it feels very moist and comfortable, I do find it a little shinier than I would expect a matte lipstick to be!

It's been brought to my attention that some people don't like the swatches - sorry to hear that, this is what it looks like on my lips - maybe some sites like to photoshop their swatches to perfection which makes them look nice but doesn't necessarily give you an accurate representation of what the product will look like on your lips. So love it or leave it, this is how I prefer to do it!

  1. Those look luscious! Not flat at all! How/where did you get your hands on them?

  2. I fly to Paris, sneak into the Paris late at night and nick it - I know it sounds like a lot to go through but come on, it's Chanel! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. Hello, this weekend I want to theBay in Montreal and purchase la Fascinante go at your local the Bay Chanel contour i'm sure you will found them. :)

  4. Wow, that pink is gorgeous. Thank you for not Photoshopping anything. I love your natural photos.

  5. Thank you for not photoshopping!!!! It's pretty irritating when people tweak their photos, and the colours look nothing like the real thing..am still undecided on which one to pick, and the Nordstrom counter hadn't got the lipsticks the last time I went there.
