Chanel Chestnut (122) Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was velvety, lightweight, and smooth without being emollient--felt more like a silicone-heavy primer as it glided over my lips. It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
