I treated myself to Pirate the other day because I’d seen it used and thought it looked beautiful and I needed a true blue based red lipstick that was wearable and not to “extreme” looking. I’d read good reviews for this shade and was so excited to “treat myself”, especially since everything else I tried to purchase that day was sold out! I have to say that I’m really disappointed in this lipstick and I’m not sure if it’s just this particular shade or the formulation of the whole line (since this is my only Rouge Allure) but while this is a very attractive colour, it simply does not last on my lips. At this price point, I believe wear should be long than an hour or so. MAC lipsticks that cost 1/3 the price of this last better on me. I’m still willing to try a few more of these lipsticks (or perhaps some of Chanel’s other formulas) – heck, it’s Chanel! But overall, I was expecting better!
