Chanel Surprenante (129) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Surprenante Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Surprenante Rouge Allure Lipstick ($35) is a vibrant, medium watermelon pink. It has a little bit of a frost and shimmer to it, but it's pretty subtle, and actually looks matte on my lips in low lighting. I'm not really a fan of frost, but it's subtle enough where it's not a deal breaker for me. It's very pretty and I think a color that is well suited for the Spring.

The coverage is mostly opaque with one coat and applies smoothly to the lips with a satiny feel. I originally thought that the formula would be drying, but it actually feels pretty good on my lips despite the fact that it's not a moisturizing formula. It makes my lips look soft and pillowy when I wear it alone, but I like jazzing it up with a layer of glossimer over top to really make the color glisten. Unfortunately, if you apply it over dry or chapped lips, the dryness will be accentuated. This lipstick lasts a bit longer on my lips compared to some of my other lipsticks - maybe around 4 hours or so.

Overall, I really like the color of the lipstick, and the formula isn't bad, but I don't think it's a must-have. I prefer a more moisturizing/glossy formula.

The Round-Up

Pros:
  • Soft floral fragrance (which you might like or hate) 
  • Doesn't have a gritty texture despite the shimmer
  • Feels somewhat soft and velvety on the lips
  • It's not drying - but it's also not moisturizing, which can be a con. 
  • Makes my lips appear slightly fuller
  • Good lasting power (4+ hours)
  • Beautiful, glossy black and gold sleek packaging
Cons:
  • Because of the slightly frosty finish the color can look a bit dated, nevertheless it's a beautiful shade of pink and great for the Spring/Summer months. If you don't like the finish, you can always add gloss on top, which is usually how I wear it!
  • If your lips are dry/cracked, this lipstick can accentuate the dryness (not to the extreme) but still a little noticeable.
Price: $35.
