Chanel Eblouissante (165) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium peony pink with warm undertones and fine, gold shimmer.

These are both truly beautiful shades, and very easily wearable! I really love the subtle shimmer, nothing OTT. Inspiree is very much in keeping with the 90’s brown lipstick revival, so of course, that makes it a win. However, it’s Eblouissante that is winning me over, shade wise, but there are higher quality dupes for that amount of $’s.

Inspiree looks really pretty and easy to wear, don’t think I have anything like it in my stash, will need to swatch at counter. Sometimes peachy browns can look bad on me, but I think this has enough red/coral/gold in it to work
