Chanel Nightfall Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very subtle pearl--the kind that yielded more of a noticeable sheen than a true frost or shimmery finish. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and velvety so it never tugged on the lips and was comfortable to apply and to wear. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, and the color applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. This shade lasted for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on my lips.
