When I asked at the Chanel counter for a long lasting, pigmented lipstick. The sales assistant suggested the Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks.
Rouge Allure Velvet is a matte lipstick. Unlike other matte lipsticks though, these are very comfortable to wear. They aren't overly drying and actually feel quite creamy on the lips.
As always with Chanel products the lipstick is in gorgeous packaging. Sleek black and gold. The case is a click release, which means no lipstick being destroyed when in your handbag.

I instantly fell in love with the shade 37 L'Exuberante (translates to 'the exuberant one'). It is a gorgeous bright pink that completely perks up your look.
The sales assistant also suggested with these lipsticks it is best to use a lip liner. I don't normally wear lip liners. Not because I don't want to but because I can never find one that matches my lipstick. Luckily the Precision Lip Definer in 26 Pretty Pink matches L'Exuberante perfectly.
I was impressed by the wear time of this lip combination. I would say I get a good 6 hours of solid colour. I wore this lipstick and liner to my cousins wedding and I only touched up my lips once and I was eating and drinking. I think that is pretty awesome wear!

When wearing this lipstick I apply the lip liner first and fill in my lips to give the lipstick longer lasting power. I then apply the lipstick on the top directly from the bullet. Only one layer is needed, that is how highly it is pigmented.
The lipstick cost $50.00 and the lip liner cost $44.00 available from Chanel counters.
Have you tried these lipsticks? Do you like matte lipsticks?
