The new Rouge Allure collection features 4 Rouge Allures (2 regular, 2 velvets), 3 Rouge Allure glosses and some nail polishes and lip liners. Some of the items are from the permanent line making it a rather concise collection.
I wasn't planning on buying anything but when I spotted the
display it occurred to me that I might not have tried the Rouge Allure
Velvet lip formula. Completely aghast with this realisation I corrected
the wrong doing and bought the limited edition Rouge Allure Velvet in La
When I came back home the bitter sweetness of having a blog
became apparent when I saw that I did in fact buy a Rouge Allure Velvet
way back in 2011 and my review was a bit sub-par, well what a dampener
on my new shiny purchase.....
The lipstick has a velvety feel and applies really smooth, however it
does feel clingy and sinks into lip lines a bit, its not uncomfortably
drying but lacks the level of hydration I prefer. On the plus side its
richly pigmented, wear time is really good and the colour is just lush,
its a medium to deep rose, the base is matte but there is a subtle gold
sheen to it which helps it not look flat.
Swatched three times
Applied with one light layer
Whilst the formula is not my favourite, I really am enjoying this
saturated colour that brightens up the complexion, which I really need
at the moment, as I am rocking a tired, drab look courtesy of my
teething sleepless baby.
Overall I think this collection is worth a peruse and it serves to wet
the appetite for the upcoming Vamp Attitude Holiday collection.
I bought this from Boots
