Rouge Allure

For all you Chanel lovers out there Chanel launched the new Rouge Allure Lipgloss and three new Rouge Allure shades to get you Spring/Summer ready. I got my hands on the candy pink shades for both you can either wear on the own or apply the gloss over the lipstick to get that intense shine that is so bang on trend.

Now I am a big fan of the Chanel lipsticks so am always happy to add to my collection. The latest colours have something for most skin tones the pink being better for the paler skin tone and then there is a chocolate and a deep blackcurrant shade for the darker skin tones. They launched in stores yesterday and as you know Chanel isn’t cheap by any means retailing at R495 so either you think of it as an investment or bribe your man to get you one.

The glosses come in 11 shades ranging from the nude, all shades of pink, orange, plum, red, chocolate and blackcurrant. I do love Chanel packaging and with this gloss you click the bottom and out the gloss pops so its pretty fancy. The shade I have on its own is not an intense colour because I have a tan at the moment, but if you apply over the pink lipstick then it will give you some lucious looking lips. These glosses retail at R505 so if you buying both its a big investment. You may just want to go for a darker shade like the Pirate Red which will be a more intense colour on the lips without the lipstick but if you going to pay that amount of money for a gloss you really have to be a Chanel fan.

The gloss does have an intense shine due to its combination of film-forming polymer and glass microbeads which creates that lacquered effect, while enhancing the lips and giving them a plumper appearance. Ingredients such as Sappan Wood, Matcha Green Butter and a Vitamin E derivitive to keep lips smooth, antioxidants to protect the lips and emolliant oils to maintain the hydration in the lips.

Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Powder Review

So a while back I posted about the new Chanel Healthy Glow Powder. Well after much searching as it sold out in lots of places I managed to get 4 shades 20,30,40 and 50. The lighter shades for the face and the darker for bronzing or contouring. So I tried them out properly today I love them!!!!! They are expensive so definitely a treat or great as a present. The powder can be worn straigth onto your skin after moisturising or on top of foundation and then the darker shades to create a healthy glow. Normally I only use translucent powder but really love this new technology of powder.

I opted with foundation first as I have a little pigmentation and wanted more coverage. The great thing aboputbthis powder is that its matt but your skin glows and it looks natural. I moisturised and then added my Estee Lauder Illuminating Serum in the areas I needed most. I buffed in a small amount of liquid foundation as I wanted to keep it really light. As I have a tan I used no 30 with my Mac buffing brush all over and then contoured using the fan brush that comes with the powder to create that sun kissed tan with no 40. Then finished with mascara.

Not the best picture but you get the idea!

Hope you enjoy the post. x
