I wish these Chanel Rouge Allure Inks came with a calligraphy pen…because once upon a time (seventh grade), I took a calligraphy class, and I kicked B+ butt in it!
Don’t mess with my swash capital letters, homie!
These two $37 shades are from the fall Chanel Travel Diary collection. Lost is a pink beige that also lives in the permanent collection, and Highway is an LE mid-toned coral. Both of them are two of the quieter, mellower lip colors in the collection (if you want bright, go with Daylight).
The Rouge Allure Inks are Chanel’s line of matte liquid lipsticks, and girl, they are cute — like, collectible cute! They come in fancy little frosted glass tubes, so they look like sample bottles of colorful Chanel perfume.
They’re unflavored and unscented, which is unusual for Chanel, and feel like a whisper across my lips… They’re also luxuriously lightweight and silky, with a thin, liquid-like consistency, as opposed to a mousse-like feel, which is popular in liquid lipstick land nowadays. If you’re a fan of thin liquid lippies like the NARS Powermatte Pigments, you’ll probably like how light they feel.
If you like sheer shades, you’re also in luck, because these are sheer. Shockingly sheer to me, especially compared to other liquid lipsticks.
When I wear Pinkish beige Lost, I can still see the freckle on my bottom lip peeking through, and same goes for coral Highway, which has a little more kick. That one’s maybe a pinky fingernail tip away from medium coverage.
Very limited wear time
I was surprised the first time I wore these because, with matte liquid lipsticks, I assume they’ll be full-coverage. I expected much more oomph and longer wear time, because Chanel calls these long-lasting, but they’re gone, baby, gone after a few sips from my fave mug.

Comfy with cute packaging
But they’re sheer, pricey, and they don’t last long. My dry, fickle lips will stick with the NARS Powermattes for now.
I broke my blender 🙁
You guys, I’m so bummed! I was making a smoothie the other day, and, well, if you must know, it was Persian cucumber smoothie with spinach, frozen cherries, frozen pineapple, a white peach and Zico coconut water…
Anyway, I broke the blender. I was washing the glass part in my sink and it dropped. Now I don’t know if should get a replacement blender jar (it’s only $10), or if I should use it as an excuse to buy a whole new blender.
The one I have/had is an Osterizer classic, which I’ve had for years, but I every time I walk by the Nutri blender at Target, my eyes get HUGE.
It looks cool, but I dunno… Do you have one? I’m strangely intrigued.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
