Chanel Pivoine Noire (136) Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was denser, more velvety and felt very heavy on the silicones, though the actual feeling on my lips was lighter-weight but not as thin as I would have expected.
These types of formulas can be hit or miss on me, as they often emphasize my lip texture, but this particular shade applied evenly and smoothly across my lips and did not emphasize my lip lines or imperfections. It stayed on well for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and was non-drying.
