chanel lipsticks rouge allure collection 2015

The Chanel Rouge Allure range of lip products are known for being intense, bold yet luminous. Thanks to its high concentration of finely ground pigments, the shades are radiant and strong, and can be found in velvet, satiny or pearlescent finishes. We break down how to choose the perfect Rouge Allure product for you, ahead of its Nov 13 launch:

Chic and timeless

Women who love classic lipsticks will adore Chanel’s Rouge Allure ($48 each). Hydrating with a subtle sheen, it leaves your puckers feeling and looking soft, with a satiny wash of colour that’s feminine and sophisticated.

Bold and modern

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet ($48 each) has the perfect mix of luminosity with a matte finish. Its strong colour intensity packs a punch, while its creamy texture leaves lips feeling hydrated and comfortable.

Fun and easy

If you prefer something with no fuss or muss, then a gloss is always a good way to go. The Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($46 each) goes one step further. It combines the easy application and shine of a gloss with the colour intensity of a lipstick.

For the pros

Every lipstick junkie knows a lip pencil is a must-have in her beauty arsenal. It not only adds definition and shape to your puckers, but also prevents colour from bleeding and prolongs wear. The soft, supple glide-on tip of Chanel’s Le Crayon Levres ($32) traces the contours of your lips with a clean, satiny matte line to match with the lipsticks and glosses of the collection.
