Chanel Rouge Allure Delicieuse Lipstick

Hello 2011! 

I hope everyone had fun during the holidays:-) My clothes feel a little bit tighter now. Eeek! I think i gained 5 freaking pounds! Even my cheeks feels heavy, it's like i'm carrying two sandbags (one on each side of my face). I totally forgot my diet and binged during the holidays. It's so hard to resist food when there's a wide array of yummy dishes staring back at me. Time to D-I-E-T again! And i'm "seriously serious" Haha!

For this post i made it look classic vintage since it's
Oh well...Chanel
I had fun playing with the pictures (again) hehe:-)

A "delicious" lippie to own

This lipstick was part of my wishlist because i saw an acquaintance wear this shade at a party several months ago and since then it sort of got stuck in my head. Every time her name pops up its not the face i remember but her lipstick. So i made it my mission to get one too (jealous much haha)!


Classy packaging that pops open when you press the gold logo. 

The casing's black and gold combination looks so posh! And i like the clever way Chanel infused a spring mechanism on the cover to ensure that it securely latches on the tube. Extra points here since i hate loose caps that gets lost in my bag and smears lipstick stains all over. One of my biggest pet-peeves!


An elegant lady's must-have


For some reason the color makes me think of peach-mango nectar 

Shimmery swatch...

Sorry i just had to include Zoe's face on the perfume bottle
After all French and poodles go together haha! ;-)


This is almost the exact same shade irl

Delicieuse is a soft peachy nude lippie that can also look a bit coral on certain lip tones (darker). It applies quite sheerly but is buildable. It is not your typical creamy lipstick as there's a slight waxy feel to it. Same feeling i get when i wear my NARS Niagara. There's also a certain rose scent to it which i deem as the "scent of a luxurious lipstick". Haha! Some women might not like it all but i DO love it! 



How it looks like on my lips

It has fine gold shimmers that looks beautiful in any light. This shade makes my face look brighter and fresher. The color is perfect for everyday use. Looks so subtle and natural. Lasting power is also good. One observation though is that under soft yellow light (at night) it is not as noticeable. Also, it's quite drying after awhile so lipgloss is a must!

At 1750 pesos or around $30 dollars, the price is a bit steep. I could almost buy 2 MAC lipsticks with that! I just wished it wasn't as drying on me. But overall, i like it. I like it's pretty color. Great addition to any lipstick collection. Right now, i'm eyeing other shades from Chanel, Jersey Rose or Coquette from their Spring 2011 collection. Gosh! i don't want to start another obsession with these Chanel lippies, i'm really trying very very hard to kill that urge! 

P.S.
While i was writing this post i caught Zoe stealing the box and chewing it. Tsk..tsk..good thing she didn't choose the actual lipstick or else... Bad girl!

Here's the proof:


THANK YOU FOR VISITING PRETTY LADIES!
Have a fabulous year ahead! :-)

Je vous remercie pour votre visite! :-)

This shade is so nice to try, thanks for sharing:)

Katrina Demecillo said...

how was your new year minakichu? i was bummed coz i tried to wish you a happy new year on dec 31st, but it was soo rainy in our place, so the internet signal was no where to reach. i planned to blog hop the entire holiday season, to greet everyone on NYE. EPIC FAIL!!!

anyhoo, one time my coworker offered me a cheap chanel lipstick. i am pretty sure there was no CHANEL engraved in the stick itself. you know, just like what you have up there. i think that was a knock-off. do all chanel lipstick have that engraved thing? well i have no idea coz i don't visit their corner in the mall.

Rinny said...

So pricey, but I would buy it just because the color is so pretty and the packaging looks so luxe haha

Gem said...

@Katrina-belated happy new year! i hope all's well with you. My other Chanel lipstick doesnt have an engraving, i think it depends on the lipstick line like this one's under the rouge allure, you should try this:-)
@Rinny-the color is what made me buy it despite its price hehe:-)
@Gem-thanks so much for liking and following my blog i really appreciate it:-)
