Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Allure Moiré
Shade: Farouche 122
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Rouge Allure Moiré is Chanel’s newest addition to their signature lipstick range, featuring a refined mother-of-pearl effect for a sophisticated luminous lustre on lips.
  • Available in 6 permanent shades – Farouche, Ambigue, Indécise, Suprenante, Etonnante, Énigmatique, and 2 limited edition shades – Impulsive and Audacieuse.
  • Farouche is a chocolate brown with a subtle pearl sheen that’s just enough to add luminosity without going as far as frosty.   It’s so pigmented that you get full coverage in just few sweeps.
  • Rouge Allure’s are one of my all time favourite lipstick formulas as they’re plush and comfortable, apply smoothly both with and without lip balm, don’t slip around and once the creaminess sets it becomes a soft satin finish.
  • Verdict: Farouche will appeal to those with dark skin tones that need rich warm tones in their MLBB shade.  If you’re someone that’s self-conscious about the fullness of your lips, the plush pearl sheen will give them a soft focus effect that’s less intrusive than a glossy finish or less aging than a matte finish.

  • Rouge Allure Moiré is Chanel’s newest addition to their signature lipstick range, featuring a refined mother-of-pearl effect for a sophisticated luminous lustre on lips.
  • Available in 6 permanent shades – Farouche, Ambigue, Indécise, Suprenante, Etonnante, Énigmatique, and 2 limited edition shades – Impulsive and Audacieuse.
  • Indécise is a sheer pearl nude that’s simply exquisite.  It somehow manages to deliver an ultra-nude effect thanks to the way the pearl finish glimmers in light, and yet it has a translucence that blends seamlessly with your own lip tone without it looking like a “mask” on your lips, nor a single streak in sight.
  • Rouge Allure’s are one of my all time favourite lipstick formulas as they’re plush and comfortable, apply smoothly both with and without lip balm,  don’t slip around and once the creaminess sets it becomes a soft satin finish.
  • Verdict: Indécise is the ultimate sophisticated pearl nude.  The pearl finish is so stunning that I can’t stop tilting my head in all sorts of angles in awe of how amazing it looks on my lips in all angles of lighting.

The packaging is the same as the signature Rouge Allure range, where you open/close it with a single click so that it stays in place in your bag.

The pearl finish is the most subtle when you look straight ahead, possibly due to my lip shape.
For me it really comes to life once you look sideways, or tilt your head at that “selfie” angle.

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Brightening Lip Gloss
Shade: Lilac Pearl
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Launched as part of the Brightening Nudes Collection, the collection is inspired by glowing skin, sparkling eyes and lush lips to make you look like you’re lit from within.
  • There are 3 soft shades in the Brightening Lip Glosses in the collection – Lilac Pearl (featured), Pink Opal and Pink Lilac.
  • Unlike other sheer shimmery lipsticks out there,  Lilac Pearl gives lips a pearlescent lilac sheen that’s high in shine & reflects light amazingly well.  Lip swatches don’t do it justice.
  • As with all Bobbi Brown lip gloss formulas, it’s moderately sticky and sculpts lips to create the illusion of a fuller pout.
  • For those that like to layer glittery gloss over lipstick, there is also a Crystal Glitter Lip Gloss (in tube packaging) in the collection.
  • Verdict: Highly recommended for those who love their shimmers super-fine & want their lips catching the light without looking like a disco ball. The lilac tones in this gloss would look gorgeous on top  of mauve lipstick, or for those who want a lilac twist to their pink lip.

The photos don’t do it justice.  Swatch it yourself to see just how light reflecting and pearlescent it really is.

RRP: $42 AUD

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Secret Lover (MAC Me Over Collection – LE)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Secret Lover is described as a “pale pink with yellow frost” with a lustre finish, used in MAC Me Over Transformation for Rachel & Ian.
  • Surprisingly wearable, this leaves a pale pearl glisten on lips.  On my arm it looks almost invisible except for a sheen.
  • Verdict: On its own it instantly transforms your natural lip tone into pale lips. But I find this works better when layered over lipsticks for added dimension.
