Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipstick " La Sensuelle 40"

Hello Everyone!
I recently discovered the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipsticks. I purchased this color for a wedding I attended and I must say I was very impressed with the finish, the comfort, and the longevity of this lipstick.

This is my first Chanel lipstick I have owned. I chose this color because it was super flattering on my fair skin. It is a berry color that has a little bit of red and a little bit of pink!

I LOVE the packaging of Chanel lipsticks. They are slightly weighted and the combination of black and gold feel very luxurious.

 I think this is the perfect color for the fall and for the holidays! I wear this color a ton and I find that it lasts for at least 6 hours. When this color fades, it seems to fade very evenly giving the lips a stained effect. I know this is advertised as a "matte" lipstick but this does seem to have a bit of a sheen on the lips. I feel like it is more of a semi matte finish.

This lipstick is $34.00 and can be purchased at any Chanel counter or online. 

I know this lipstick is very pricey but I definitely do not regret purchasing it! Would I go out and buy a bunch more colors right now? No,  I would only spend this much money on lipstick for a special occasion but I am so glad that I have it and I am so excited to wear it to holiday party's   :)

If you are on the hunt for a new every day lipstick, I would definitely check out this line of velvet matte lipsticks. They are super comfortable on the lips and if you are wearing it every day then it would definitely be worth the price!

I hope this was helpful!



  1. I`ve got this shade! It looks gorgeous on you. I find Chanel Rouge Allure Velvets a bit drying, they dry out my lips a bit more than MAC mats.

    1. Thank you so much! Hmm thats interesting. I do love MAC lipsticks as well! :)

  2. It is just my kind of red. I hope my laptop monitor is accurate.

    1. Yeah I would describe it more as a berry but with definite red undertones. You should definitely try it! Thanks for reading :)
