Chanel Rouge Allure in Lover

Hey Dolls,

I'm worried I sound like a broken record when I say this, but Chanel's Rouge Allure lipsticks are my absolute favourite I have tried.  They are so smooth, pigmented and have such a beautiful sheen meaning they feel really moisturising to wear.  A new favourite of mine is 09 Lover and to match Glossimer 106 Myriade. 

Lover is absolutely beautiful - in the tube it looks quite an intimidating dark red, however on the lips, it's a little sheerer and on me shows up as more of a raspberry (a little like Revlon's Cherries in the Snow).  I think if reds intimidate you, Lover would be perfect.  As a lipstick it's extremely wearable as you can dab it on which gives it the appearance of a stain. 

I really love Chanel's Glossimers, they are so glossy without being heavy or sticky and last quite a long time on the lips.  Myriade is a red/pink gloss with quite prominent multitoned glitter that looks beautiful paired with Lover.  Why are all my favourite Glossimer's always limited editions?

I look like such a moody cow! What are your favourite red lipsticks?

Love Nicola


  1. I don't suit red lipstick, but maybe because I'm not buying the right shades for my skintone. I am determined to find the perfect one! I shall be checking out the Chanel counter next week :) xxx

  2. I havent tried any Chanel lippies, my fave red is MAC viva glam 1. Its a lovely matte deep red.

  3. Lover looks beautiful! I love Chanel lip products. :-)

  4. This is a really beautiful shade of red, very wearable! I usually like very dark lipsticks, i do not own many red shades. My favourite at the moment is MAC media.

  5. Looks gorgeous on you. :)

    I love NYX Raisin and Choas also MAC Ruby Woo.

  6. This combo looks great on your skin tone.:D
