Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipstick- Pirate #99

Pirate is the last of the three Rouge Allure Luminous shades that I got recently. I showed you Exaltee #93 & Palpitante #102 in a recent post but I saved this beautiful red for last. I love blue based reds. They really pop against my skin and look amazing if I do say so myself!

















I am going to stop at three shades even though I know if I go back and look I will fall in love with more shades. I am in love with the lipstick formula. The color payoff is fantastic and you know how much I hate dry lipstick by now right? Well this is not drying at all and even wears off well. The color lasts a good number of hours and I have to say I like this a little more than my favorite red Gabrielle from Chanel. Pirate is a much deeper red. My favorite red mattes La Fascinante #38 and YSL’s Rouge Rock #203 have some serious competition this Fall. I thought I was going to be all about matte shades but maybe not!

With almost twenty shades available there is something for everyone. Check these out at the counter. I picked mine up at Nordstrom so get to your favorite counter and swatch these and see if there is one that works for you.

    Okay, I too, am getting obsessed with ALL the lipsticks you’re showing! Yup, it does look good on you. It should be “naughty” Pirate! Haha!

    Hello Crystalis,

    You got me into the Chanel lipsticks! I purchased three of them already. I purchased #40 La Sensuelle, #93 Exaltee, and I also purchased taffeta rose. I see why women love their lipsticks and glosses. All shades you have chosen look beautiful on you. Keep up the good work with the product reviews. God bless you :)

    Hi! Thank you so much for your review. I read your review for Nyx Chaos as well. I have Nyx Chaos and read somewhere that it’s an exact dupe for Chanel 99 Pirate. I am in love with chaos and looking for a high-end version. Your skin tone is similar to mine. What is your opinion? Are they dupes?
