Over the past few weeks this has been my absolute go to lipstick!
Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Long-Wear Lip Colour in 148 Foudroyante - £26
I love Chanel lipsticks. Well let's be honest I love anything Chanel!
I picked this lipstick up a few weeks ago when I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping. I was instantly drawn to the shade and then when I saw the packaging it was a done deal!
The lipstick comes in a compact but sturdy bullet in Chanels standard black and gold design. The lipstick has a sort of "push to open" top - you press down the gold top and out pops the lipstick bullet. I just love the Chanel packaging <3
"Rouge Allure offers a radiant and satiny makeup result with optimum hold, in an ultra-smooth, melt away texture".
The shade I have is #148 Foudroyante which is a deep brown/mauve - think Kylie Jenner but darker. The colour is just beautiful and I feel it would compliment any skin tone. I used Mac Whirl lip liner to line my lips before applying this which goes perfectly.
The texture of this lipstick is exactly as the description says - ultra-smooth - it applies to the lips literally like silk and feels super creamy/non-drying on the lips. The colour pay off is pretty good too - I like two swipes for a real deepened colour.
Without flash(excuse the dodgy tan):
The only downside of this lipstick I felt was its staying power. I wore this on a shopping trip to Bristol and I needed to re-apply every hour as the colour just seemed to totally disappear off my lips. I'm usually used to wearing matte lipsticks such as Mac's Velvet Teddy and Rimmel Kate Moss #107, which practically stain your lips so I may just not be used to the buttery/creamy wear of a satin lipstick. To be honest though as I love the colour so much I didn't mind having to keep re-applying.
The Rouge Allure range come in a total of 24 shades and are available from Debenhams or Boots. I will definitely be trying out a couple of their brighter shades as we head into Spring/Summer!
