I have too many matte liquid lipsticks! – said No One. 🙂 Well, that is so true, indeed. Matte liquid lipsticks are everywhere! Seems like every brands are making their very own version of matte liquid lipsticks. Hmm, what do you know, Chanel didn’t wanna get left behind, so, enter my current matte liquid lipstick favorite, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour. I’m so excited to review this because I’m so curious to find out whether a high end matte liquid lipstick would outshine the current and popular mid-brands of matte liquid lipsticks, or not.
Much to my surprise, when I was picking up the shades, I was having a bit of a hard time because most of the shades don’t seem to match well with my skin tone. I have an NC3-35 skin tone and a Beige 30 in most Chanel foundations for the record. Most of the shades in this Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colours are on the bright reds, which I’m not really a fan of because my skin tends to complement with the vampy or dark muted hues.
Eventually, I settled with these two colors, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte in 150 Luxuriant and 154 Experimente. These are almost the darkest shades of all the Rouge Allure Ink Matte Lip Colour. With respect to their formulations, they’re definitely matte in texture and they dry fast like most matte liquid lipsticks. They almost don’t have any discerning scent and they are extremely pigmented. I get about a good 5 to 6 hours of wear on these, and they also leave a slight stain on my outer lips thereafter. The brush applicator feels strong and robust, though the overall packaging is quite small compared to most matte liquid lipsticks. I like that it’s made of thick hard glass, but not heavy. Overall, the packaging is nice, simple yet luxurious.
150 Luxuriant: A slightly bright and deep fuchsia with bluish undertone. It’s extremely pigmented and super creamy. The formula takes about a full minute to dry and is very staining, but can be easily cleaned.
154 Experimente: The darkest of all the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte shades, and my most favorite as well. It’s a dark vampy red which dries immediately upon application and is also crazily pigmented and has a creamy texture. It tends to get clumpy if you apply too much, so go easy on this. It’s a beautiful shade for medium to dark skin tones.
As you can see in the photo above, the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour’s packaging is quite tiny. For its price, I wish it came with a bigger tube which means more product. However, these lippies would fit very well in your purse, and they look really luxurious. Compared to most matte liquid lipsticks that are so popular out there, I think these ones are a good contender. They are true to what they are supposed to be, a matte liquid lipstick, but they’re not drying like most matte liquid lipsticks, and at the same time, they’re well pigmented and long lasting.

Thanks for your time guys, until next time…
