Chanel Rouge Byzantin Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Rouge Byzantin Rouge Allure Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “an iridescent ruby red with a hint of sapphire, for a rich, jewel-toned lip look.” On me, it’s a rich, pinked red with ruby micro-shimmer. It delivers nearly opaque color and even coverage. There is subtle iridescent sheen–looks almost fuchsia to me–that pops at a distance. It’s a very holiday-esque red to me. It’s bright and joyous, but the depth of the color gives it a luxurious richness.

Guerlain Bal de Mai (160) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

The formula is creamy without being thick or heavy, and it is actually a moisturizing formula.   It’s soft and feels like silk when applied.  I find these comparable to the Rouge G lipstick, though not as thick or as opaque, but still similar enough.  They’re $11 cheaper than the Rouge Gs, but the colors still have the same depth and nuanced shade range that makes Guerlain lipstick always standout to me.  To see more photos of the packaging, check out this post.  I did find that the slider on this particular tube was stiffer than others, which reduced the functionality/utility.

Chanel Plumetis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Plumetis Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft pinked apricot that applies semi-sheer. It ends up looking rather peach on my lips, and it tends to mute my natural lip color and add warmth. It’s a softer version of Chanel Liberte. Rouge Cocos are described as hydrating, though I find them only somewhat moisturizing overall.

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a hint of plum. When worn, it is dark without being overwhelmingly so; it’s a softened dark, if that makes any sense! There is a hint of shine, and the lip color really seems to melt into the natural lip and ends up looking rather natural. It’s a very fitting shade for fall, and I think it is incredibly easy to wear, particularly for thsoe who tend to stay away from darker lip colors. This is dark without being dominating.
