Introducing Chanel La Diva Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick, From the New Chanel Notes de Printemps Spring Collection

Published in: Daily Beauty

Chanel La Diva

I like to think that Chanel named this particular Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick after one of my all-time favorite divas — the multitalented Tabs.

He and Karl (Mr. Lagerfeld) are pretty tight, after all, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Tabs featured into Karl’s thought process. Perhaps he was Karl’s muse.

It makes sense, really, if you think about it. After all, like Tabs, this cool pink lipstick looks good with black cat liner. :)

La Diva, with its velvety finish, is part of the new Notes de Printemps spring collection. Officially, it arrives on Chanel counters in January, but you can find it now at Nordstrom stores and online at nordstrom.com.

BOTANY FUN FACT: even though eggplant hangs out with the vegetables in the supermarket, it’s actually a fruit.

Why am I telling you this?

Well, I wouldn’t want you to be unprepared for Final Jeopardy, obvs. :) Also, the new purple polish by Chanel, Charivari, just might be the most perfect eggplant I’ve ever seen.

It’s from the new Notes de Printemps (notes of spring) collection, which comes out next month. If you live near a Nordstrom, check and see if it’s already on counter. I caught a brief glimpse of it when I whizzed through the beauty department earlier this week. Unfortunately, I was running errands and didn’t have time to play. :(

From a quick glance, though — beautiful! There are lots of bright, intense pinks, corals and deep purples, along with some gray, ivory, peach and red.

So, Charivari, le eggplant. It seems kind of moody and melodic…like a Cure song in color.

I’m wearing two coats in this swatch, purely out of habit, but a single layer would have been fine.

The Two New Chanel Nuit Magique Le Vernis Nail Colours Will Cast Their Cosmic Magic Online Soon

My last magical night was the final night of my trip to Kauai with El Hub last August. After dinner, we walked down to the beach by our hotel on Kalapaki Bay and took a long, leisurely stroll on the sand under the moonlight.

The moon was so full and round that night. I felt like it was just above my head, like I could reach right out grab it. We walked and talked from one end of the beach to the other while listening to a band playing somewhere in the distance. The music mixed with the sound of the waves gently lapping at our feet.

We talked about all kinds of things as we walked and watched the moonlight reflect on the water — the fun things we did on our trip, the other places we still hoped to travel, and where we saw our little family in the next few years.

It was a magical night, and I wished it would never end. I remember looking down at my feet at one point and watching the water wash over my toes…

Incidentally, I was wearing Chanel Taboo! :)

I love Taboo… It’s one of my all-time Chanel faves (right up there with Jade), but if I’m ever lucky enough to have a another magical night like that one, I hope I’m wearing one of the two Chanel nail polishes in the Nuit Magique collection (magical night, en Français) — ya know, to go with the whole magical theme of the night.

Chanel Magic and Cosmic

The two-piece limited edition collection of dark and moody colors goes on sale December 2, exclusive to chanel.com.

Both of them seem like perfect colors for a big night out. Or a big day (if you’re into deeper shades like I am).

Chanel Collection Nuit Infinie De Chanel: Cheeks and Lips

  • Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in La Precieuse ($43): A vivid red matte that leans slightly blue; similar to MAC Ruby Woo, but with a thinner texture and less severe matte finish
  • Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in La Desiree ($43): An extremely pigmented burgundy red matte with smooth texture; can’t skip the lip liner with this one
