When I was traveling in Paris, I was practically staying 5 minutes walk from Sephora. Being in Paris, I knew I had to pick up something from Chanel even though most of the collection in Sephora didn’t exactly pique my fancy. As I am a fan of non-glossy lipsticks, I picked up Rouge Allure Velvet aka Chanel Luminous Matte Lip Colour.
It’s matte but non-drying and the colour pigment is impressive (not OTT bold). Definitely one of the best ‘matte’ lipstick I have tried because it doesn’t crack, dry out or peel on my drying lips. Packaging wise it’s classic Chanel, oozing understated elegance.

Swatch with one swipe on the back of my hand.
The perfect pink/red shade that is not quite pink or red. Love it!
