Chanel No. 5 is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark red with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $45.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Chanel No. 5 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was incredibly lightweight and thin without feeling clingy. The color applied evenly across my lips and never dragged or tugged on them during application. It wore well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was hydrating over time.
