Rouge Allure 104 Passion by Chanel

Hello lovelies!

I think every girl needs at least one gorgeous red shade lipstick in their life. It doesn't have to be one from a highstreet brand but it must be one you enjoy wearing and it definitely makes you feel beautiful. 

I feel lucky to have one of the most beautiful red lipsticks I've ever seen in my life and I was also lucky because this was a present. If you have read my post about January Favourites, then you'll probably know about this wonderful lipstick.




The story behind this lipstick is both funny and sweet. Last year, I was using a red lipgloss from the brand Manhattan and even though the red was perfect, the bad thing about it is that it wouldn't come off when I took my make up off. One of my brothers would constantly make fun of me about that because one night I had come home late from a party so I quickly took off my make up — even the lipgloss! — but when I woke up my lips would still look red. 
My birthday is on January 9th and during New Years Eve, my brother appeared with a small bag and placed it next to me. He said, "There you go: an early birthday present so you don't go to places with that permanent lipgloss!" When I opened the small box and I saw that lipstick I was in awe, sort of shocked. I remember my mum looking at him saying, "how did that cost?!" completely horrified. My brother shrugged, "A lot for a lipstick but I'd rather buy her something of good quality than some a random cheap lipstick that who knows what will make her lips look like!" Haha! Cute story, right?


It was my first lipstick — I always used my mum's / we would buy a shade we liked so we could share it — and it was (pardon in advance for my language) bloody Chanel. I still have no idea who helped him out to get that brand / that lipstick in particular but I have never loved a lipstick as much as I love that one!

What I love the most about this lipstick is that I don't really need to reapply it often. Probably after 3-4 hours when I've gone for dinner + party or something but if you're not going to eat nor drink much, the colour remains for a long time. It leaves my lips soft and also I'd say kind of moisturised, which is good. They never get chapped nor I feel them dry! 
I also like that the red isn't very intense yet it's still a really wonderful red shade!

Crappy quality, sorry! 

I love red lipsticks although I don't have a bunch of them. I really want to try more (like the famous Russian Red by MAC) but this time from a drugstore brand so I'll probably try one by Rimmel from the Kate Moss collection — they seem lovely!

What's your favourite red lipstick? Do you own any Chanel lipstick?

I hope you all have a lovely Monday!

  1. I don't own any of my own Chanel products. Once, however, my mom spent about 2 hours talking to a clerk at the Chanel counter in a department store and left with about $700 worth of stuff! My favorite red lipstick is by Tarte in the shade "Fiery".
