Chanel Farouche 122 Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Farouche (122) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34) is one of three new limited edition shades of lipstick that launched with the Chanel Nuit Infinie de Chanel Holiday 2013 Collection.

Chanel Farouche Rouge Allure Lipstick is one of those shades you might pass up on it because it contains a bit too much brown but…don’t let it fool you! It’s a rather stunning little shade.

Take a look!

Chanel Farouche (122) Rouge Allure Lipstick is a warmer chocolatey brown at a glance but underneath all that brown you’ll find a slight hint of plum. The plum livens the shade up and makes it more wearable for me! The color is fully opaque and has a creamy satin finish that’s very pleasant to apply and wear.

This is a shade I wouldn’t typically reach out for but the one thing I love about Musings of a Muse is I get to experiment and discover colors that are a little outside my comfort zone. This adds a lovely touch of warmth to lips and makes a beautiful pairing with a smoky eye look.

Don’t miss it.

It looks a little intimidating in the tube but applied it’s a wonderfully sultry shade of plummy chocolate!

P.S. Is anyone else as excited about this as I am? They went off the reservation with the story but I sure am loving what they are doing so far!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    That shade is beautiful and it looks stunning on you. Also, what are you wearing on your eyes? It looks super pretty.

    I love this color! Especially on you it looks great with your eyes! I might have to get this, even though I said I would never again buy another one of their lipsticks. I’m a sucker for these natural lip tone shades and I love a natural look. I just got a call from my Chanel counter yesterday saying if you spend $75 you get 3 samples and a free brush set, not Chanel of course! But yeah…I said last week I wasn’t going to buy anymore makeup for a whole year to try and use up what I got, we’ll see how long that lasts! As I kind of want this shade like right now!

    THIS IS FANTASTIC! It does look a little meh in the tube but on your lips = FABU!

      it looks awful in the tube I’ll be the first to say it but applied it’s another story 😀

    Okay, you look amazing with the lip & eye combo. This lipstick would suit my pigmented lips very nicely.
    I can’t wait to see The Desolation of Smaug. Although I wonder what storyline will carry the third movie. The War of 5 Armies was maybe a few pages in the book. Between these and the GOT seasons, I feel like I’m always waiting! Dany needs to get to Westeros and smackdown Cersei!
