Ohhhh I'm a bag blogger. Seriously though.. nothing really struck my fancy lately to be worthy of blogging. I've had no new purchases (GASP)... I'm just not excited.
My last post was about construction... so anti-beauty. I decided to swatch and review one of my absolute favorite products.
Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer. Ain't that a mouthful. The Laque's come in a multitude of colors.. some perm, some LE.. all expensive. At $32 a pop I only have 2 of them. I bought one last year (for a summer shade) and one this year (for a fall/winter shade). Chanel has fabulous products but they're SO pricey. Even a bit more than Dior, which is just about as high as I'll go. TBH I probably buy more from Dior because of their Diva VIP Program.
They apply with a doe foot applicator and go on extremely smoothly and opaque. The wear isn't very long, however it does leave a nice stain on the lips so you're not totally without.
The berry color on top is Dynastie (74), the peach masterpiece on the bottom is Santal (77)
I hope to swatch more of these in the future. I have a few on my WANTS list.
The Chanel Rouge Allure Laque retail for $32 plus tax at fine retailers (Macy's, Nordstrom, Saks...) If you buy from a counter KNOW your numbers. The testers only have numbers on the bottom. So, for example, if you go in looking for Santal... know that you're also looking for #77.
