Today I am going to review the gorgeous Chanel, Rouge Allure Velvet No'42 L'Eclatante.. Gorgeous YES! It's absolutely devine. I love this colour recently, just because it's a spring|summer colour!
L’éclatante is a matte finish with a lovely bright pink, it's girly with a bit of cheekiness! It isn't limited edition but is part of the spring collection, so you can relax now, you can buy it at any Chanel counter! This colour is just perfection. It is gorgeous, it's striking but not too in your face. Even though it is a matte colour with a slight sheen, the texture is smooth and soft and is very comfortable on the lips and does not dry them out. Beware though if you have chapped lips, the matte finish could accentuate them.
This colour is very wearable, I think anyone and any skin tone can wear this colour. It doesn't stay on very long on me personally anyway, it fades quite easily but don't let that stop you because overall the colour and the formula is lush!
This rouge allure velvet lipstick is build-able, one layer will do the trick but if you wanted to, have several layers to make the pink more intense. If your not really into bright lips but you like this lipstick then you can make it less bright by putting a lip balm on your lips first then the lipstick and this will stop the colour from being so tense.
What do you think?
