Zombie Preparedness 101: In Case of Emergency, Grab Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipsticks From the Printemps Precieux de Chanel Spring 2013 Collection

Chanel Rouge Allure Fantasque 112

Wearing Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Fantasque ($34), one of six lipsticks from the Chanel Printemps Precieux de Chanel Spring 2013 Collection

After much thought and deliberation about the inevitable zombie apocalypse — because we all know it’s only a matter of time — I’ve come to the realization that when the sh*t goes down, my zombie transformation will probably come sooner than later.

So, instead of wasting time honing skills like wilderness survival and close-quarters combat, and instead of squirreling away baseball bats and brain-slashing instruments under my bed, I’m going to stuff my “In Case of Zombie Emergency” kit, not with canned foods and medicine, but with Chanel.


Lots and lots of Chanel. 🙂

First thing to add? The four Rouge Allure lipsticks ($34 each) and two Rouge Allure Velvets ($34) from the Printemps Precieux de Chanel Spring 2013 collection.

    Captivante looks great on you, I will have to try it as well as Envoutante.

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Alice Ann. I hope you give a few of the colors a try. The texture and pigment on all of ’em are great.

      Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?

      • Alice Ann says:

        Sadly, I will go to work tomorrow after missing most of this week because of this terrible flu. On Sunday I may go to a flea market in Santa Cruz, though, that should be fun. Have a good weekend!

  4. God I love Chanel lipsticks! 🙂

    I think Captivante will look best when mixed with brains. 🙂

    Happy Friday!

    • Karen says:

      Oh, most definitely. Don’t forget to add a side of gooey zombie blood… DELISH!

      Happy Friday to you too. Whatcha got going on this weekend? I’m keeping it low key and hanging out at home. Hopefully I’ll find the energy to put the Christmas tree away, LOL! It’s still up and in the living room.

  6. Richa says:

    I will agree…Captivante looks great on you!

    Karen, which eyeliner are you wearing? It really makes your eyes pop and your complexion glow!

  8. Ruchita says:

    All the colors are pretty, but Captivante is my fave! Happy Friday! Hopefully Tabs lets you cut of work early today. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to some warmer temps this weekend to melt all the snow on the ground. I did take Mingy out on a quick walk the other day and he was thrilled after being cooped up inside for a while.

  9. Ellen says:

    Why must you do this to me?? Hahaha 🙂 I’m thinking either Envoutante or Captivante – I’m neutral-cool, NC15. Which do you think? Envoutante is something I would go for, but Captivante is, well, captivating!

  10. Rachel says:

    I love the color of La Favorite. 🙂 I need to try one of Chanel lip products when I get off no/low lip product buy.

    I’ve never used much Chanel makeup (even if I’ve heard great things about it) but those lipsticks have me tempted. I hope they’re ongoing and not limited edition. La Favorite looks so pretty.

  13. gio says:

    They are all gorgeous! My favourite is La Favorite.

    I don’t think these Rouges Allure are unforgettable, I much prefer the Rouges Coco for some collections ( spring and fall ), last year they were so beautiful ( Charme, Paradis, Destinée etc.. ) but this year I’ll skip. I love the regular Rouges Allure Collection though ( I have Passion, Pirate and Inimitable ).

  15. It’s dangerous for me to come here when you post about Chanel. Now I also need Envoutante and Captivante.

    i loooove lipsticks!!! Just a shame a very high quality one cant suit my student budget:( x

  25. Tori says:

    The lippies are nice but I think that your eye makeup is gorgeous and makes you look so feminine and pretty (not that you don’t always look good). Would you mind sharing what you put on your eyes?

  26. nawi says:

    I am missing fantasique on your lips is that correct?
