Vavavoom! This is one of the perfect red lipstick I've encountered!
I got this Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in 75 Dragon from Martha for Php1000, sweet deal!^.^
This retails for Php1895 in Rustan's
I often see reviews and photos about Rouge Allure Laque but I rarely see the top Chanel logo, I was surprised to see the logo when I opened the box!
Here's how it looks on the doe foot applicator. I love the black glass tube, it contributes to Dragon's vibrancy! The glass tube is really classy but you have to take good care of this one, you can't use this when you're in a hurry or else you might accidentally drop it. Also, try to wipe the tube off with a clean cloth after use because it's a fingerprint magnet =p
Here's my Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 75 Dragon swatch
On me, Dragon looks a bit darker than my Shu Uemura RD170 but it's a beautiful stunning solid shade of blood red. It makes my skin whiter with a healthy glow- not white ghostly pale.
I was surprised with the lightweight texture, it doesn't feel as heavy as it looks. It is one of the better lipstick formula out there in the market, it looks so pigmented and yet it's feather light to wear.
Although I really really love the color and the formula, sometimes I find the lipstick transferring to my teeth =/ I really have to be careful using this. It lasts a good time and when it fades, it leaves a nice red stain just like my Shu Uemura RD170.
After testing Chanel Rouge Allure Laque, I can say this is one of the best lip product I've tried and it really makes me want to purchase Mandarin (reddish coral) and Phoenix (pink)! ^.^
Oh wait, my cousin Shirley just purchased me a handful of lipstick from Sephora! Hmmm... Chanel would have to take a back seat for a while ^.^
