Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #40 La Sensuelle- My One London Heathrow Duty Free Purchase

If you’ve ever flown through London Heathrow then you know what a MECCA of Duty Free Beauty Shopping it entails. I have never seen anything like it before in my life. It’s pretty much like walking through a high end department store! It was simply amazing.

I had to get something. So, I started to linger by the Chanel section of course. What better place to linger at when it’s duty free, right?

 And, I got a lipstick.  Meet Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #40 La Sensuelle. The name got me. But so did the colour!

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #40 La Sensuelle is described as an intense violet plum. Bingo!

outside, true to colour!

If you love the look of a matte lipstick, but hate how drying they are then Chanel Rouge Allure Velvets are something you should take a peek at. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvets have silicone microbeads and mother of pearl in the lipstick.That combination somehow gives a matte but smooth, yet radiant look. Oh, and there’s some jojoba oil in there to keep your lips feeling moisturized. Nice!

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #40 La Sensuelle feels oh so good on my lips. Here in Alberta, there just isn’t a lot of humidity, so my lips are always dry. I love matte lipsticks, but they are so hard to wear out here. But Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #40 La Sensuelle feels and looks like velvet and glides on my lips leaving them smooth and feeling good. I get a good 4 hours of wear which is great for me! And this colour just says autumn to me! I love it!

I like this Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet so much and it’s one of my new autumn loves! I Highly recommend trying one out if you can.
