I decided to treat myself a tad by buying a high end lipstick I’d typically be afraid to pick up. But boyyyy, am I happy I did! Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipstick in shade no. 59 gives me so much life. I’ve always been a fan of the bold lipsticks, so naturally I decided to go with this piece. It is really appropriate for the fall and winters months. Retailing at $37 USD, I’m glad this isn’t a product that will easily go to waste.
With one easy swipe, it swatches true to the color in the bullet. The pigmentation is lovely; it is effortless to get an even finish on the lips. With a light, perfumed scent, it is reminiscent of the Rouge Coco lipstick line by Chanel. If you’re worried about strong aromas, you don’t need to worry about this one; the scent is pleasant and faint.
I used to have a lipstick by Wet ‘n Wild from the megalast matte line that this lipstick somewhat reminds me of. When I come across the one I’m thinking of, I can go ahead with a beloved dupe post! But overall, I’d highly recommend this lippie if you’re looking to splurge.
