Rouge Allure in Emotive has been with me for a while now, but it wasn't until this morning that I decided to take it out and wear this bold shade. After remembering why this lipstick is so dear to me I was inspired to do a post on it.
What it is: "An instant icon, this luxurious lipstick formula combines lustrous color, sensational comfort and fabulous wear". -Chanel
Packaging: Chanel represents luxury and therefore their packaging is sophisticated and luxurious. Rouge Allure Lipsticks are incased in a black, slim tube. Unlike the typical packaging of a lipstick such as the Rouge Coco's, these will have you doing something new when opening the tube. You must click-open the elegant golden logo for the lipstick tube to pop out. Interesting experience for someone who loves how products are packaged.

My Verdict: Emotive is definitely one of the bolder lipsticks included in my collection. It is lightweight, creamy and long-wearing. This shade glides onto my lips effortlessly and wears comfortably. My lips are on the normal side of hydration but can get dry if a product reacts to them or if it simply is not moisturizing and dry. I do not find this Rouge Allure to be the most moisturizing lip stick out there but it is one of the most comfortable and weightless lip colors I have tried. The opaque pigmentation allows the lipstick to wear longer than the average lipstick. I can get around 4 to 5 hours of wear, the color appearing more as stain by the 4th hour. I appreciate that the lip color wears off evenly, not leaving noticeable patches on some parts of my lips. Because the color is lightweight, adding a lip gloss really enhances the color without making it look goopey. However, emotive is beautiful on it's own which is how I prefer to wear it.
Emotive is a raspberry pink with a slight fuchsia sheen- gorgeous for that fun pop of color
Available at Chanel, Nordstrom, and Macy's
