Chanel has been in the fashion business since 1909, and they are credited with inventing some of the most iconic beauty products ever. Many of these products were launched in the 1980s, when supermodel-turned-designer, Coco Chanel, was at the helm of the company, and her red lipstick was reportedly all she wore. From that point on, it seemed every woman who wanted to look chic had to have one of those red lipsticks from Chanel’s 5 most iconic lipsticks ever!
Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in Rouge Imprévu
“I love to use this product as a full coverage lip colour, but I also sometimes apply it with a soft domed brush as a soft lip stain. It’s a lightweight matte formula that imparts amazing pigment and stays put without feeling dry,” adds Lee. All the colours are beautiful, but this one is right now my fave. This colour is practically luminous when applied with a finger then blotted. I recently wore this to a wedding because I adore a vibrant, stained mouth for fall when it’s matched with radiant skin and a dramatic brow.
Rouge Allure Laque Liquid Lip Colour in Beige Confidentiel
Lee always uses this lipstick because of its fantastic formula. She claims that because of the pigment’s intense punch and unparalleled staying power, the bright colours are her favourites. She also happens to enjoy the shade Invincible as well. “This particular shade is a wonderful peachy nude, which is a nice break from the greyish, mauve nudes [we usually see],” she said.
Rouge Coco Bloom Lip Colour in Radiant
“I enjoy the plumping effect, gloss, and hydration, and it’s all you need for the office or zoom meetings coupled with a veil of Chanel Les Beiges Foundation ($60) and a coat of Chanel Inimitable Mascara ($32),” says Farolfi.
Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate
“This is the ultimate red,” adds Farolfi, adding that it is “very flexible and looks excellent on every skin tone.” On thin lips or for longer lasting results, I pair it with Chanel Le Crayon Lèvres Rouge Intense. Apply a second coat of Pirate with lip brush No. 300 after dabbing lips with a Kleenex.
Chanel artist Kate Lee agrees that this colour is a must-have. “With a satin finish and a lengthy wear time, this limited edition holiday hue will be the gift I give to all my friends this year!”
Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in Low-Key
Makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi applied this eye-catching colour to Emma Raducanu for her Met Gala debut. “It’s ideal for adding a delicate and appealing matte colour to a moist lip,” she explains. “It looks best with beautiful skin, manicured brows, eyeliner, and blush. Also, a little secret: it’s the same colour and texture that I like to use as creamy blush!”
