Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque

Chanel Rouge Allure Laques ($32.00) are one of my new favorite lip products. I loved the formula so much I had to own every single shade–luckily, there are only eight at the moment–because they’re that amazing. The formula is long-wearing without being drying, provides rich, opaque color in one easy swipe, and the shades are full of dimension and easy to wear.

Dragon is still my favorite. None of the other shades quite captured my heart like Dragon did, but all of the other shades are wearable and flattering on my skin tone. I’d say Coromandel was my least favorite, if only because I don’t like orange-based reds on me, so I don’t think it looks as good on me, but I think Coromandel is stunning on others–so it’s still a great pick if you’re a fan of orange-based reds.

If I had to rank them, I’d put them in an order like this: Dragon, Santal, Dynastie, Ming, Imperial, Phoenix, Mandarin, Coromandel. But in reality? Dragon is first, Coromandel is last (but only for me), and the rest are all great, wearable shades. I think the quality is consistent from each shade to the next, so it’s really a matter of what shade(s) you’re drawn to and feel are flattering on you.

Rouge Allure Laques

Which of the eight is your favorite?  Top three?  Will you (did you!) purchase any of these?

Temptalia Asks You

Do you buy backups of beauty products? Why/why not? What have you bought?

Temptalia's Answer.

I do on occasion, but very rarely. I have several backups of MAC Mari-Sheeno lipstick, one of MAC Gold Dusk pigment, and two MAC Rye eyeshadows.
