Lipstick of the day #12 - Chanel Rouge Allure in Hyde Park


Chanel Rouge Allure in Hyde Park is a Harrods exclusive as part of their Chanel World promotion.  There are three Rouge Allures in this Knightsbridge collection - Hyde Park, Kensington (fuchsia pink, almost Barbie-ish) and Belgravia (just pink).

The Rouge Allure packaging is my favourite out of Chanel's lineup.  The lipstick case is probably the most innovative bar Guerlain's Rouge G - you click the gold base and out comes the lipstick from the sleek black case.  Genius.

Hyde Park is a coral based pink.  Like the rest of the Rouge Allure range, when applied, it has a sheen to the finish but is not overly glossy.

When swatched the colour looks quite light but it may or may not appear darker when applied, depending on the natural pigmentation of your lips.  My lips are quite pink so it appears much brighter and darker on me.

Hyde Park is a spring/summery colour so it is a little disappointing that they are releasing it now.  But it is a beautiful colour.  If you're a fan of Rouge Allures and coral pinks, you'll definitely have to pick this up.

I have also reviewed the Brompton Road Poudre Tissée blush from this collection.
