The new Les Naturels De Chanel collection repurposes two previously released Rouge Allure lipstick colors ($30 each), and I’m tickled pink!
Curious (a creamy brown) and Naive (a shimmery pink) first appeared last year as part of Chanel Summer 2008.
I can see why they brought these two babies back. Both shades may be basic neutrals, but they’re good staples to have around for conservative lip looks to offset more dramatic eyes.
The two colors are consistent with the neutral vibe of Les Naturels De Chanel.
Like other Rouge Allure lipsticks, I think both of these shades have a consistency like MAC’s Lustre lipsticks — lighter than a matte or cream and slick on the lips.
Two coats of Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Curious
Curious is the warmer of the two, a toasted almond brown with a hint of golden shimmer, and I think it would look great beneath Unity Glossimer or any other shimmery golden brown lipgloss. If you like your lips to look natural and wear warm colors well, you might give Curious a try. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Naive
Naive reminds me of something Angelina Jolie would wear down the red carpet with killer cat eyeliner. It’s a cool pink with subtle golden shimmer, and methinks it’ll look fantabulous with something sheer like Waterlily Glossimer. If you’re into natural-ish pink lips or wear lots of looks with smokey eyes, take a gander at Naive. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Yeah, I don’t think either of these colors revolutionizes the lipstick world as we know it, but they are what they are — basic, elegant, neutral shades that most women could wear every day.
Birthday steal of a deal!
Yesterday afternoon I quit work early and headed to the mall to do some damage with my birthday gift certificate from El Hub.
I ended up coming home with this yellow polka dotted dress by Calvin Klein.
Nordie’s had it marked down to $49 from $118!
I plan to give it a good home. 🙂
Thank you very much for your birthday wishes yesterday. You guys made my day.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
