Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Précieuse ($34) is a new Chanel velvet formula lipstick that applies as a rich strawberry red. A beautiful color to wear with grays and other rich fall colors, this is a pretty color that doesn’t seem to have a twin in my current collection.
As the name implies, Chanel’s Velvet formula is not a true matte, but still preserves some luster when applied. The formula feels like the typical Chanel Rouge Allure formulation–on Liz and I, it feels very moisturizing.
Here are some comparison swatches with Chanel La Précieuse compared with Chanel Rouge Coco Gabrielle, Chanel Rouge Allure Palpitante (reviewed here), Chanel Rouge Allure Flamboyante (reviewed here), and Chanel Rouge Allure Incandescente (reviewed here).
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Précieuse is a beautiful, rich color in a lovely satin-velvet formula. It’s newly released as part of Chanel’s Holiday Collection, and is definitely appropriate for either day wear or for evening. Lovely.
