Luscious Red Holiday Lips

Luscious Red Holiday Lips

A luscious red lip is a fantastic addition to any Holiday attire!  When I recently went on the hunt for the perfect color for my pout I immediately thought, Chanel will have what I am looking for, they have always been the icon for classic reds, and their lipsticks are long wearing and non-drying…the Rouge Allure Limited Edition “Holiday Reds” did not disappoint!

This Holiday Season they have introduced 4 new reds to the Rouge Allure Collection, housed in a festive limited edition red case. There are 2 different finishes, Satin which has a medium shine, and Velvet which is a non- drying matte. Of course, I had to try on all 4 since each one had a different undertone.

Undertone colors are

#1. Cherry, #2. Coral, #3. Berry, #4. Wine.  Colors 1 & 2 come only in the satin finish, while 3 &4 are the velvet or matte finish. I was impressed that within those 4 reds they had provided just the right color for every skin tone….it is important for a cosmetic brand to be inclusive.  The winner for me was #1 … a vibrant cherry red which matches my current state of mind. Let me know which one you choose, by leaving me a comment or sending a pic.

Red Lipstick Tip:

Don’t you just hate when you are “feeling yourself”, wearing that bold lip, engaging in deep conversation, and someone lets you know you have lipstick on your teeth?… I think we’ve all been there.  Here’s a tip I received from a make- up pro a long time ago… sure you can line your lips, but that really only helps to keep it from bleeding…this trick accomplishes both.

  1. Powder your lips lightly before applying your lipstick
  2. Apply a light coat of lipstick and blot
  3. Dust with a little more powder and blot again
  4. Apply a second coat of lipstick

Your lipstick will seriously stay in place even as you drink, dance, laugh and enjoy the party!

Available at all major dept. stores and Chanel stores.
