Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick 257 Rouge Triomphal is a new red lipstick from the 2021 Le Lion de Chanel collection. For your convenience (when you pick the lipstick from your collection), the lion’s head is embossed on the packaging.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 257 Rouge Triomphal can be described as bright classic red with a hint of orange. No shimmer, of course. The color is almost neon red!
Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks are my favorite from the wide range of Chanel lip products. They are highly pigmented, easy to apply and to wear. On the other hand, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks tend to be more drying and harder to apply. I was surprised how soft and easy was new Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick 257 Rouge Triomphal.
For this look, I used YSL Couture Color Clutch Eyeshadow Palette #1 Paris: fine shimmer pink on my lids, matte rose in crease, shimmery silver from Dior eyeshadows palette 724 under eyebrows, shimmery violet as eyeliner. For mascara, I used Chanel mascara base on top lashes and YSL Vinyl Couture mascara 2 I’m the Unpredictable all over.
My verdict is: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick 257 Rouge Triomphal is a young bold red with a perfect texture. 257 Rouge Triomphal didn’t leak or went on my teeth. Also, this shade didn’t dry out my lips after wearing it for a couple of hours.
