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.
- Powder your lips lightly before applying your lipstick
- Apply a light coat of lipstick and blot
- Dust with a little more powder and blot again
- Apply a second coat of lipstick
Your lipstick will seriously stay in place even as you drink, dance, laugh and enjoy the party!
