I’m on a nice luxurious lipstick kick lately. I’ve been thinking of adding Chanel lippies to my lipstick collection the moment I tried Chanel Dragon. I’m not a total fan of reds, but Dragon is just pure awesomeness! Rouge Allure Velvet is Chanel’s take on matte lippies.
I prefer matte lippies that can stand the test of eating and drinking as I am quite lazy to retouch. Heehee.
La Malicieuse is a coral red in velvety matte finish. It’s nearly translucent, I must say. The formula is lightweight, a bit creamy and hydrating during the time of wear. A bit unforgiving on the lips.
Pigmentation is somewhat semi-opaque. Ohhh, this is rather disappointing. I had hoped La Malicieuse would look the way on lips as it did in the tube but nope. The finish looks somewhere between a matte and a satin to me. :/ Not a formula I reach for either! But I do have to note that it is not terribly drying on me. And I love the name, very cheeky lol.
You have to push the bottom of the tube to open it. :)

Some people love the formula, so it could just be me!
I don’t generally like to fuss with lip liner — trying to get the right color to go with your lips or the color of the lipstick seems too much of a hassle. I love Urban Decay eyeliners so I thought it would be a safe bet to try their lip liners.
Ozone is clear, not thick or sticky in texture, and can be used outside the lip line and to fill (works best for both). It prevents feathering into the fine lines and creases around the mouth. Thus, a fantastic base for lipstick. Only con is frequent sharpening. Daily use might last you a month.

Ozone is a nice lip liner to have, especially for those not big on lip liners.
