Chanel La Petillante (49) Rouge Allure Velvet

Chanel La Petillante (49) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “coral red.” It’s a brightened, pink-red that has a very slight warmth to it and a satin-matte finish. It was nearly opaque applied to lips with a lightweight, velvety texture that was fairly thin but was comfortable to wear and applied well. It lasted for six hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is redder. Lipstick Queen Have Paris (P, $50.00) is warmer. MAC La Vie En Rouge (LE, $16.00) is more matte. Bobbi Brown Watermelon (P, $26.00) is lighter. NARS Grace (P, $32.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Bachelorette (P, $21.00) is more matte, pinker. Givenchy Rouge Egerie (305) (P, $36.00) is warmer, lighter. Chanel La Malicieuse (46) (P, $34.00) is pinker, lighter. MAC All Fired Up (P, $16.00) is more matte, pinker.

Chanel La Romanesque (50) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “magenta.” It’s a muted, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly full color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for six hours and left a stain behind. It was very slightly drying towards the end for me. Tom Ford Beauty Cooper (LE, $32.00) is darker. MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is cooler-toned. Lipstick Queen Play It (P, $50.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Framboise (P, $24.00) is a smidgen lighter. MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Catharina (P, $23.00) is darker. Illamasqua Glissade (P, $26.00) is glossier. MAC Good Taste (P, $22.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Voila! (120) (P, $30.00) is darker, redder. Marc Jacobs Beauty Roll the Dice (118) (P, $30.00) is similar.

La Romanesque has been on my wishlist since the collection launched and your review and swatches just confirmed what I knew- I have to get it, it’s gorgeous!

La Romanesque. I’ve been eying it and the collection and this one both interested me most and is the one I really love. It’s also not a color I would normally pick (fewer dupes in my stash) so I just might get it.
The past week has been so busy with family and holidays etc…much else has slipped by. But now I have time! Can’t believe how much you were able to post over the holidays!

I’m already feeling the summer vibe! Lovely on you, Christine. I think that i’ll invest in Romanesque as a pick-me-up during the dull months of winter.
And let me just say what a busy-bee you are! Posting yesterday and today, we readers are most grateful for all of your hard work. Wishing you and your family a very happy New Year!
PS. I’ve been searching for the EL Rose Gold eyeliner and i can’t seem to locate it. Was it a LE? Any suggestions on where to find it or a dupe? Thanks so much.

OH MY! These are mattes I can get behind. Both colors are fabulous! Both shades are so summery without being too bright. Trés chic.
