Chanel Belgravia Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Belgravia Rouge Allure Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “lustrous and vibrant rose.” It’s a limited edition shade from the Knightsbridge collection, which is an exclusive to chanel.com. Chanel says the color “pays tribute to a region of London, rich with history and classic architecture.” It’s a brightened strawberry pink with lighter pink shimmer. The color coverage is mostly opaque, though my lip freckle is still visible.  Chanel’s Rouge Allure formula is one of my favorites, and it’s my favorite lipstick formula by Chanel.  The formula is long-wearing (this shade wore for five hours), comfortable to wear, and moisturizing.  It’s a little less color coverage than I would expect from a Rouge Allure, but it’s not sheer.

I think these types of pinks can be so flattering across skin tones, because it’s warm without being orange or coral, bright without being neon, and the soft shimmer gives lips a lush look.  I couldn’t find an exact dupe of this shade, but there were a few shades that were similar.  Laura Mercier Evening Pink reminded me of a much more intense version of this shade. Bobbi Brown Mod Pink is similar but has no shimmer. Dolce & Gabbana Splendid is slightly more coral. Dolce & Gabbana Fuchsia is similar but a touch redder.

If you had to choose between Belgravia and Kensington, which would you choose? One of them will be my first Chanel lipstick. I want to make it count! xP

NC25, yellow undertones, black hair, dark brown eyes, medium pigmented lips 🙂

What happened to the “love it” or “leave it” buttons!? I miss them! ;(
I would totally “love it” if I could, and it’s such a pretty color on you 😀

I kinda like that its not opaque.. only because ‘lipsticks’ arent really my thing.. they smudge and go everywhere etc etc.. this is the kind of lippy I have been looking for 🙂

Is there any way I could get this if I’m living in germany? I really really want this I’m obsessed wih London it would be so disappointing if I couldn’t get this….

Oh wow, what a beautiful shade! Surprising though that it wears so much more pink than what it looks like in the tube as it totally looks coral! Gorgeous though and it looks great on you, Christine.

It’s not unreasonable that I should be lusting after this color so much because of the BBC’s Sherlock episode entitled “A Scandal in Belgravia.” Is it? 😛

This is a very pretty color and that is has a bit of sheerness to it. Too bad I can’t swatch it at a counter, though!
