Why The Chanel Rouge Allure Ink’s Are My Number One

Why The Chanel Rouge Allure Ink’s Are My NO.1.

Prepare yourself for a lipstick love letter…


The Chanel Rouge Allure Ink’s were released back in September and I quickly fell head over heels in love with them, so I thought it about time they had their own spotlight on hello-october.com. Don’t you agree?

Let’s get one thing settled before we start this review. These are not the dry matte formula you associate with a liquid lipstick. In fact, these have entirely changed my preference when it comes to a liquid lipstick. I no longer reach for those with a matte finish, but those with a velvet feel, and my lips have well and truly thanked me for it.

Despite not being 100% matte, these lipsticks still fall in to the afore mentioned category as they do dry down to a matte looking finish. However the feel is anything but. They’re comfortable and don’t feel dry at all, and last for a good few hours without the need for a touch up. I say a good few hours because, let’s get real, I eat at least every four hours and drink frequently. So naturally most lip products on the market don’t get past this wear time with me. And then we have the colour range. Whilst there isn’t a vast selection of colours, the eight in the range are all gorgeous and there’s a little something for everybody. There are even a few reds which allows us a better chance at finding our perfect rouge tone in the collection. 

My personal favourite shades are the lightest and darkest of the collection, Amoureux (a nude, rosey pink) and Expérimenté (a gorgeous dark red). I wear both on a daily basis and will happily repurchase them once I’ve used both up. And if Chanel do decide to expand the shade range in the collection I will be first in line at my local counter to purchase. They’re that good.

SIDE NOTE: These are limited edition, but you can still get them online and I’ve seen them on a few counters so they’re worth giving a swatch if you spot them!
