Today I’m excited to share with you the swatch of this Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme in Chestnut and my review on this lipstick. Comes almost without saying that as usual, this Chanel lipstick packaging is delicious and elegant as Chanel can be.
The colour of this lipstick, Chestnut, is really nice, especially for a brown/medium skin tone. The finish on the lips is a soft matt, not drying at all and decently long-lasting.
The real problem is, the lipstick doesn’t apply easily on the lips. The way I use it is to pat it on my lips rather than “swipe’ it on. I sort of want to try another lipstick shade from the line just to see how it would perform as I read other great reviews about this lipsticks.
This lipstick is not the only one I used from Chanel and I know that the brand can deliver.
The overall score for me is a 6/10.
As I said i love Chanel as a brand, the Vitalumière aqua foundation by Chanel is my forever favourite.
Have a look at the video for the application and the swatches.
- Chanel Rouge Allure in Libre – I used to use also the shade number 108, same formula, and I so was desperate when Chanel decided to take it off the main collection.

- Rouge Coco in shade Jeanne – 408
- Rouge allure Velvet in N5 – a limited edition – I’ve used it with the Chanel precision lip definer 57 (last swatch)
