Two Rouge Allure lipsticks arrived at Neiman Marcus with Chanel's Holiday 2011 Collection - one pink and one red. Naturally, I sprang for the pink one. Called Enivrée (#197), it's a gorgeous pink that shimmers with gold sparkles. This Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color ($32) earns its luminous description.
The word "enivrée" means intoxicated. What a great name! I'm intoxicated by the pretty color.
I took a few swatch photos today so that I could show you that it's a gorgeous pink - a must-have pink for pink lipstick lovers. All of my Enivrée photos were taken in full mid-day sun.
I think this shimmering pink is absolutely gorgeous - a great shade for the holidays, but also a great shade for any time of year. It's a neutral, medium-intensity pink - not too warm, not too cool. Even though I took my photos in full sun, I tried to turn the glowing lip color slightly away from the sun so that I could show you its beautiful gleam.
There is a red shade, Famous, that also came with the collection. Kathy Shoreman's iPhone photo showing both new Rouge Allure shades is below. She said the red is gorgeous, a shade she might wear out to dinner with her husband. I can appreciate that many will love the red, but it's not my color. I'm a pink gal.
There's more to come here from Chanel Holiday 2011. Come on back tomorrow. I'm getting swatch photos as quickly as I can.
Chanel's colors for the holidays will be available at Chanel counters nationwide and at Chanel's Web site. I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus.
