3 Playfully Pink Chanel Rouge Allures From the Permanent Collection

Chanel. Pink. Permanent!

Thou speaketh magic words to mine ears! Or, should I say “magic words to my lips”? Hmm!

I’ve been wearing lipstick very infrequently over the past few months (sunscreen, however, is a totally different story!), so when I started downsizing my collection in May, I promised myself that the only legacy lipsticks I would keep going forward are ones I absolutely adore.

I’ve gotten rid of most of the dead weight by now and am finally at the point where I actually have to try stuff on to determine if I want to keep keeping it, and these three Chanel lippies are the next ones on deck.

Raspberry reddish pink Rouge Allure Ink in 170 Euphorie ($40) is a lightweight matte liquid lipstick that, for some reason, looks more red in these pics! — but less so in person.

Rouge Allure Velvet in 42 Eclatante ($40) is a bright and summery coral pink with a soft matte finish and like Euphorie it feels light on my lips. It also looks fantastic with black cat eye liner!

Rouge Allure in 91 Seduisante ($40) is a warm pink with a creamy finish, and I can see it being a lovely everyday color.

The rest of the makeup in this look

Lately, I’ve been trying to find ways to wear makeup that work for me… By that I mean that I don’t want to feel overwhelmed by the thought of blending, or, like I’m wearing a sh*t-ton of stuff on my skin. I just want to feel pretty in makeup again, ya know?

I think I’ve finally found a philosophy that works for me (at least for now). I just wear a little bit of eye makeup, coupled with keeping my skin as simple as possible. Then, I incorporate a fun lipstick in a joyful color.

In this look, I’m wearing a lot of Chanel!

For the skin, I started by applying a new tinted mineral sunscreen by Avene called Solaire UV Mineral Multi-Defense Tinted Sunscreen Fluid. It’s fragrance- and oil-free, and the tan tint actually works on my NC42 skin tone. I’ve yet to test it out on a very sunny day, but so far, I’m into it!

Then, I blended a few drops of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Sunscreen Makeup on my cheeks, my nose and my upper lip; added a few drops of Hourglass Veil Retouching Fluid in Sand under my eyes; and dabbed a golden tan cream blush (Chanel Les Beiges in No 20) on my cheeks.

For my eyes, I started by lining my upper lash line with Hyperblack, Chanel’s long-wearing cream liner in a pot. Next, I swept the golden brown from the Chanel Road Movie quad to give some depth to my lids, and smudged the edges of the liner with the matte navy shade from Road Movie. To finish, I filled in my brows with Chanel Boy Brow in Black and coated my lashes with Laura Mercier Caviar Mascara.

Done! ?

    Congratulations on your progress! This has to be incredibly hard because EVERY lipstick looks good on you!! 🙂 And black liner is still totally working for you. It’s been too harsh for me for many years, but that’s not the case for you. Looks great!!

      Aww, thanks lady! This particular black gel is SO GOOD, so if you should ever decide to come back to black, it should definitely be in your collection.

        I’ll now be singing Amy Winehouse (Back to Black) all afternoon, which is a bonus because I just love that song. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    What a great look. Fresh and cheery!
    Last weeks heatwave just wrecked me and I couldn’t bother to put on anything except skincare and sunscreen. Today I started going through all the foundations I own (to try and downsize) and put on Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation and NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Dolce Vita with the Afterglow lip balm in Dolce Vita on top.
    I love how Seduisante is a muted sort of pink on you. In contrast with my fair skin it’s much brighter and shouts PINK!!!! when I wear it.
    I love three of the four colors in Road Movie. But since I don’t own it, I’m not going to run out and buy it. Pretty sure I can find a lovely dupe for the brown/tan colors.

      I wish Seduisante screamed pink on me! You are lucky!

      What are you using for sunscreen these days? I just started testing the new Avene Mineral one and IT’S GOOD!

    I really like Seduisante on you. It is a nice, wearable pink. I have always been intrigued with the Chanel Road Movie quad, however, the blue tones scared me away. I think they’d be nice as liners with my medium brown, deepest eyes. U fortunately, I have been having issues with Chanel makeup. The fragrance has gotten too strong, so no more lip colors. I still love the eye quads.
    Be well!

    I wear similar looks – easy, slightly smoked out eyes (but liner, always liner!), a light base and then a statement lipstick to pull everything together.
