I tried out these two Chanel Holiday colors and I thought I’d show them to you. Here are some pictures and quick reviews of both items.
Famous lipstick was a bit of a surprise. I love reds and Chanel makes my favorite ones. This lipstick is way more sparkly than I thought it was going to be. It sparkles A LOT. I tried to capture a little of it in the pictures of the lipstick tube above but as soon as you put this on the first time you notice it. To be honest I never thought I’d say this but it’s a bit too much sparkle for me. Can you believe it? I also think it is the reason that this Rouge Allure is a little more drying on my lips than other colors I’ve had. The sparkle isn’t gritty thank goodness, it’s just not something I prefer. It’s a dazzling red already so the fuchsia/purple-ish glitter takes it all over the top for me.
This is a super thick consistency gloss. Triomphal caught my eye immediately because it’s so infused with glitter yet the base is a nice deep red. I was really curious how that all would work out. It works for me! I really love this. It’s such a thick formula that like almost all red lipsticks and glosses you need a mirror. But the time you put into it is worth it! I love the end result so the intense concentration and makeup wipe I had on hand to fix mistakes was worth it. And because its such a thick gloss it moisturizes my lips well. I took a low light picture (to the right above) so you can see some of the sparkle in this gloss a little better. This is a home run!
