Chanel L’Impatiente Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick

Chanel L’Impatiente Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep red-black.” It’s a darkened berry-red with semi-opaque color coverage. There seemed to be a very faint shimmer in it, too.  It’s definitely a lot lighter than what it looks like in the tube. MAC Approaching Storm is browner, less berry. MAC Hang Up is similar, just glossier. MAC What Joy is redder. MAC Endless Drama is darker. Guerlain Gigolo is redder. MAC Musky Amethyst is more subdued. NYX Violet Ray is redder.

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer shimmering pink.” It’s new and limited edition from Chanel’s holiday collection, which will debut this October. It’s a pale, light-medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and a dusting of warm white shimmer. If you have more pigmented lips, this will lighten it, as there is some color in it, it’s just a light one at that–you can see how it softens and covers up my lip freckle somewhat. Because it’s pale and sheer, it’s more dupeable than not. Here are a few I came up with: NARS International Velvet is less warm-toned, Chanel Caprice is more opaque, MAC Fresh Air is pinker, and Bobbi Brown Pastel has pink shimmer.
