No. 01

Chanel No. 01 Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink-red with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though you can see my lip freckle peeking through indicating it was not full coverage (as described). The texture was smooth with slight slip but not enough to feel slippery or enable the color to move around on the lips. It wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

No. 02

Chanel No. 02 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium red with neutral undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips, but it did require a second layer for full coverage. The lipstick was lightly creamy without being thick or overly emollient, so it applied without tugging but sat nicely on the lips and didn’t feather over time. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Allure Velvet formula is supposed to be a "non-drying matte lipstick" with "intensely rich, long-wearing colour" and has a "velvet matte finish." Over time, I felt like the formula has improved and is actually non-drying (the original launch did not wear well on me) to lightly drying (seen more in shades that have lasted six to eight hours). The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but is usually semi-opaque to opaque with a semi-matte to satin finish. The texture had a velvety, glide-on feel that doesn't feel particularly creamy or wet, yet the lipstick is comfortable to wear over the four to six hours it typically lasts for. Like most Chanel lip products, they have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

No. 03

Chanel No. 03 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted red with cool, pink undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage–plenty of pigmentation that it covered the lips with even coverage but my lip freckle was still visible. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and comfortable to apply and to wear as the lipstick glided on but didn’t move around over time. The lipstick wore well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
