Chanel lipstick review

“Pour yourself and a drink, 

put on some lipstick 

and pull yourself together.”

-Elizabeth Taylor

This week I stopped by the Chanel counter at Harvey Nichols to see my good friend Niki who happens to be the manager. I have known Niki for years and she has is an amazing make up artist a long with being one of the funniest people I have ever met!

Niki never lets me leave her empty-handed so I was lucky to get an amazing haul of lipstick samples, skin care and perfumes!

I will go through some of the other products in a later blog but for now I will discuss 4 shades of the Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks.

129 Surprenante 

This is a soft, peony pink lipstick. It is not a bold colour, it is a subtle pink shade.



131 Etonnante 

This is a gorgeous soft coral-pink colour. It has a frosty shine finish to it.



124 Ambigue

This is a muted beige/ brown lip color. I like this colour for winter as an alternative to a nude lip.



135 Enigmatique 

A warm red lip, slightly matte finish. A lot of the red lipsticks I wear are bright and bold so this lipstick is a good alternative for a red lip that is not as dramatic.



I love all of the colours that I tried and know I will be investing in one or two in the near future.  Have you tried any of the Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks?

Thank you for reading
