The Sultry Season: Chanel Imperial (73) Rouge Allure Laque
Chanel Imperial (73) Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a rich shade of rusted red with just a touch of berry. Rusted berry sounds weird, but perhaps that’s a more apt description than rusted red! It has subtle pink and gold micro-shimmer. It’s completely opaque, and it makes lips look lush — it has the color payoff of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss. Rouge Allure Laques are one of my favorite products, and I’m reminded of that every time I put one on. I get around four to five hours of wear with shade in particular–plus a residual stain.
Is this the right berry for you? Would you wear it?
