Chanel Rouge Allure Laque lipstick: A quick review

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque lipstick: A quick review

What it is: A recent lipstick launch from the French beauty brand Chanel that promises to deliver long-wear colour with a satiny-shine finish.

Beauty bonus: The shine on these liquid lipsticks is superb.

Beauty bummer: Honestly? None.

Overall: This recent release sees 20 eye-catching lipstick shades given a seriously shiny finish. Plus, the formula promises to remain comfortable on lips — and wear for up to eight hours. 

That's, admittedly, a lot of promises for one liquid lipstick formula to make. But, in our experience, this one delivers on them all. 

The product applies well, though we noticed more than one coat was required in order to achieve a true patent-like finish. Despite the layering, the liquid lipstick dried down nicely and stayed very comfortable on lips. We love that this shiny option doesn't come with the stickiness or slick of most other high-shine formulations. 

Plus, the selection of shades is divine!

Would recommend? Yes.

Price: $52
