Chanel La Precieuse1

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 Luminous Intense lipstick in Palpitante ($34 /#102) is a raspberry red, an intensely pigmented red with strong fuchsia tones.

Another:

 As you can see, Palpitante has a strong blue-pink medium tone. The color is very pigmented–one gets a very strong color with a very thin layer. As with the others in the line, the formula is luxurious and moisturizing. On Liz:

Chanel Rouge Allure Palpatine creates glamour. The color, and overall texture, is rich. It’s a strong, modern color that can add a feminine touch to any outfit–whether a formal look or jeans.

As with the other Rouge Allure Intense colors, this color is not true to the tube, and may vary based on your coloring and skin. Liz and I found it to be a strong, pink-based raspberry. The formula is glowing and rich. Very Chanel.
