Chanel Camélia Lipsticks Collection

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 617 Camélia Grenat

The Camellia flower is an iconic symbol of the Chanel House. Coco Chanel was given her first bouquet of camellias by Boy Capel, the only man she loved but never married because he died in the accident.

Camellia flower is widely used in Chanel jewelry and clothes design. Creating a Lipsticks Collection with Camellia flower embossed on the packaging is a great idea! From now on, all Chanel lipsticks should have a Camellia flower!

There was so much drama to buy these lipsticks! I noticed them at Nordstrom Chanel counter right after Christmas 2019, but I didn’t have time to check it out. When I came back few days later, two most natural-looking shades (327 Camélia Blanc and 337 Camélia Rose ) were already sold out! I understand that it’s a limited edition collection, but I find this situation extreme! Here are the shades that I was able to buy: Rouge Allure Velvet 347 Camélia Fuchsia and Rouge Allure Velvet 617 Camélia Grenat.

The luxury products companies often use marketing scare techniques like ‘limited edition’ and ‘sold out’ signs to make customers buy it faster without giving them time to think and choose. The problem is that unhappy customers go to unofficial websites and buy counterfeit products.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 347 Camélia Fuchsia is a color-chameleon which is changing depending on the light. On the sun, it looks like neon fuchsia-red (without shimmer), but in the shade or interior environment 347 Camélia Fuchsia looks like cool-toned dark red. This is a very bright, young color which made my teeth look whiter. But I don’t really know where to wear such a bright color. Maybe at the red carpet event?

The camera setup was very light on those pictures. In-person, the shade is much brighter.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 617 Camélia Grenat is a dark plum color without shimmer. When applied with a brush, it produced a sophisticated matte effect on me, which looked very natural. When applied straight from the bullet, 617 Camélia Grenat turned into dark evening shade. I’m not a fan of velvet lipstick, because of its drying texture. When it comes to plum lipsticks, my favorite shade is Chanel Rouge Coco Flash lipstick 96 Phenomene.
