Autumn is fast becoming my favourite season of the year. I think it’s the romantic thought of cosy knits, faux fur and nights snuggled on the sofa watching The X Factor with
hot chocolate a glass of wine. Oh my, I really am getting old.
Today I teamed a red lip with a floppy hat and faux fur collar. Because red lips really do brighten up a pretty standard day.
The lipstick is from Chanel’s Rouge Allure range but the actual shade is now discontinued (which doesn’t surprise me considering I found this in an old makeup bag), so I won’t go on about this too much. What I will say is that it is the perfect shade of red to wear during the day. Classy and bold but not too bright. The only negative is that it doesn’t stay on too long and the shine disappears after a while.
I think the closest match from Chanel’s current collection would be the Rouge Allure Pirate – particularly as it’s a blue red.
However, my next Chanel lipstick will be La Fascinante (No 38) from the Rouge Allure Velvet collection as it’s a matte texture which I much prefer for the staying power and the colour looks absolutely gorgeous for Autumn/Winter!
As much as I love Chanel makeup, my bank account does not. So I would only buy from the brand for red lipstick/varnish – classic colours that require something a little bit more luxurious with a good finish and long-lasting wear.
