Chanel Santal Rouge Allure Laque

The Spring Season: Chanel Santal Rouge Allure Laque

Chanel Santal Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00) is a glossy, shimmering shade of champagne-peach. This is one of two ultra-wearable shades of Rouge Allure Laque (the other being Ming). This is probably the one I reach for the most, because it’s particularly flattering on my warm skin tone. I love that it stays on for a good five or six hours, with the glossiness fading after two or three, but the color still lingering. I will say that it’s not quite as long-lasting as the majority of the Rouge Allure Laques, though. I’m so glad they’re permanent, though, because this is the shade I’m most likely to finish!

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