The question is: Are the new Holiday 2019 Collection Lipsticks worth buying? Why is the price higher: $45 (without tax) instead of $38?
Chanel Holiday 2019 Collection Lipsticks belong to the classical Rouge Allure category which is famous for its intense and long-lasting color. Having a Rouge Allure lipstick is a real luxury: fancy one-click packaging, unique lipstick shape which provides a comfortable application directly from the tube, very special product texture and sophisticated colors! Let’s see if Holiday 2019 Collection Rouge Allure Lipsticks keep up with those high-quality expectations?
There are six shades in Holiday 2019 Collection: 807 Rouge Delicieux, 817 Rouge Splendide, 827 Rouge Magnifique, 837 Rouge Spectaculaire, 847 Rouge Majestueux and 857 Rouge Noble. Let’s start from the first one – Chanel Rouge Allure 807 Rouge Delicieux.
When I ordered Chanel Rouge Allure 807 Rouge Delicieux it looked like dark rose or soft plum shade at Nordstrom website. But when I tested it, 807 Rouge Delicieux turned out to be much warmer than I expected.
Chanel Rouge Allure 807 Rouge Delicieux swatched on hand looks like a beige rose color without shimmer. Compared with Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick 186 Sensible, 807 Rouge Delicieux is cooler, darker and more buildable color.
Compared with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick 87 Rose Afrique, 807 Rouge Delicieux looks like a dusty rose color. Compared with Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick 90 Jour, 807 Rouge Delicieux looks almost mauve. But on my lips, 807 Rouge Delicieux doesn’t show any mauve. Its a color-chameleon which is changing depending on the light: coral-brown inside and pink-brown outside!
I usually pick lipsticks that somehow flatter my teeth: make it whiter, better looking. Red, coral, orange-red and plum lipsticks do the job! Also, I learned from Neiman Markus sales associate that cool-toned lipsticks make the teeth whiter. So I expected a soft-plum shade like Chanel Rouge Allure 807 Rouge Delicieux to brighten up my smile. But it didn’t happen. Similar shades like Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick 186 Sensible, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick 87 Rose Afrique, Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick 90 Jour do the job very well.
