As much as I love all the sheer glossy lipstick/gloss hybrids that are coming through collection after collection, it’s refreshing and exciting to see Chanel create a beautiful matte lipstick.

I really love La Ravissante for it’s versatility, it’s feather-light silky texture, and the fact that it’s like summer in lipstick form (which is coming in useful since we’re not really getting Summer in weather form this year).

Colour:

Matte grapefruit coral. Looks amazing worn bold, or patted onto the lips for a soft kissable coral stain.

Texture:

It’s not a moisturising lipstick by any means, but for a matte lipstick I don’t find it drying on my lips. Glides on silky and evenly.

Performance:

The wear time of Chanel La Ravissante Rouge Allure Velvet is outstanding. At the 4hr mark it’s still visible as a soft stain, which is impressive for such a light colour.

 

 

Don’t miss the FOTD- keep reading after the jump!

FOTD makeup breakdown:

Eyes:

- Two Faced Shadow Insurance all over lids to prime

- MAC Embark eyeshadow blended on mobile lid to crease, and smudged under lower lashline.

- Fyrinnae Sacred loose eyeshadow on inner 1/3rd of bottom lashline, and lightly applied on the centre of top lid.

Cheeks:

- MAC Posie Blushcreme (discontinued, sorry folks) on apples of cheeks.

- MAC ‘Golden’ powder bronzer to contour.

Lips:

I hardly wear bronzer normally, but I think that with coral lipsticks bronzer it is a must. It’s just one of those magic combinations- like rocket + parmesan, gin + tonic, movies + popcorn.
