To buy or not to buy: Chanel Rouge Allure Satin in 40 La Sensuelle

I recently tried the Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick.
ROUGE ALLURE VELVET - CHANEL Universe

The shade is red with a tinge of berry. I really liked the way it looked on me.

Here's a photo, pardon the clueless look hhaha


I also blogged about it.

I haven't purchased it yet. I don't usually wear lipstick, nor do I really wear make up on a regular basis.

But I have actually tried it on twice now, and is still thinking about it.

So help me decide.

Buy or not buy??

LOL, I think it's pretty obvious if you're still thinking about it that you need to buy!! That's a great color on you Is the color La Sensuelle? Anyways, if it's the price that's making you hesitant, you can try out cheaper lines at the drugstore.. like Revlon's Colorburst ones. They have a good range of red lipsticks that are also matte like the chanel rouge allure velvet ones.. and have no taste to them! (I can't stand lipsticks that taste terrible)

Hahaah, thanks Carolicious.

Yup, the colour is La Sensuelle. Good eye.

Yeah the Chanel is definitely an investment. That is probably part of the reason why I am hesitating.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will check them out. How's the staying power of the Revlon Colorburst?

Lipsticks are one of those things I hesitate before splurging on too b/c I don't like wearing things on my lips unless I have to I used to buy high end lipsticks for the taste.. they tasted fruity or like roses or something rather than that nasty chemical taste that cheaper lipsticks tend to have. However the drugstore lines have been doing a better job of coming out w/ lipsticks that don't taste as bad (or have no taste).. although there are still a lot that taste terrible. The darker colors of the Revlon Colorbursts, like the reds, have pretty good staying power. I don't see much of a difference between the staying power of my high end ones vs. the Revlon one.

That color is great on you! I have a pink matte Revlon Colorburst and I LOVE it. Staying power is pretty good(for me that is saying a lot, as nothing ever stays on my lips - I constantly lick, press and nibble.) I've been trying to find a really great berry red but haven't succeeded yet.

Oh totally, I won't be wearing it daily, only going to be for special occasions.
Def going to check out Revlon.

I know what you mean by the taste. Some bad ones makes me feel sick.

Thanks BabyJ. Glad to hear that. Another vote Revlon.
Yeah, the right shade is also important too. If it weren't for the make up artist at Chanel, I would have never been able to pick out this shade.
