Is Stunning… Stunning?

Chanel Stunning Rouge Coco Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pearly peach-beige with subtle champagne shimmer and a rather glossy sheen.   It applied smoothly and pretty evenly, and it felt more moisturizing than other Rouge Cocos I’ve tried in the past.  It’s comfortable to wear, and this lighter shade lasted beautifully  under a glossimer (over seven hours). It’s a very lovely barely-there shade, and I think it will flatter all skin tones.  Though it’s soft in color and a little sheer, it is versatile; it can be worn on its own for an everyday look or layered underneath a more pigmented gloss to add some oomph.

I think the name sort of gave me high hopes, but the color itself was a bit of a let down. I think with a name like “Stunning,” a bolder, really show-stopping kind of shade was in order.   Instead, it’s much more of a my-lips-but-better hue. I’m not sold on it, even though it looks nice on, just because it’s not my cup of tea.  I can see why this sold out, though!

I would say it’s similar to Chanel Chintz (pinker), Chanel Mythic (a bit lighter), Guerlain Gabrielle (pinker), Urban Decay Peroxide (frostier, pinker), and Smashbox Charming (peachier).

RECOMMENDATION: Well, if you’re able to track it down and you like subtle shades that are similar to your lip color, you may enjoy Stunning. If you’re more into opaque lip colors, I would skip.

Chanel SoHo Story: Stunt

First, I must warn you: I LOVE ROUGE ALLURE LAQUES. I received a few to review when they first came onto the market, and I literally ran out the next day and bought four more. (I’ve reviewed all shades to date here.) I get four to six hours of wear with the formula, which I find rich in color, lightweight, and comfortable to wear; they’re moisturizing enough to keep my lips in good shape whenever I wear ’em.

Chanel Stunt Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00 for .20 oz.) is a pink-kissed plum with a very creamy look, slight glossiness, and rich, opaque color. LOVE! This is a flattering shade on both cooler and warmer skin tone. It is also such a needed shade to the Rouge Allure Laque range, which makes it a real shame that it’s a limited edition color. Stunt is such a wearable shade of pink/plum that’s not too light or dark, nor is it bright pink like Phoenix.  So happy I bought it–now, if only Chanel would add about eight more shades to the range and make those all permanent…

The Sultry Season: MAC Cyber Lipstick

MAC Cyber Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, dark, reddened purple with a satin finish. If that description sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same one I used to describe MAC Smoked Purple, which is virtually the same, except it is a bit more pigmented and not as glossy in its sheen–but color-wise, they are the same. If you have drier lips, Cyber will be a better bet for you–it’s not as clingy or as dry as Smoked Purple, which has a more matte finish.

Is this the right purple for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.
