Whoo Hoo! It's great... right? Dead on for my skin... NO oxidation. I love it.

I told myself I was going to stick to one to start, but I ended up unable to choose between La Sensuelle and La Fascinante. I was surprised at how different they both look on me... Oh dear. Wallet angry. Lips happy.

The reds are really beautiful, I think!

Yes, my lips are about as pigmented as Saran Wrap  LOL

I can't wait to try mine on Friday . . . do you use a liner or a brush when you apply the velvets??

 

post #2315 of 3661

Thanks for the link, Michelle! It is very very tempting! I'll be trying really hard to exercise will power for now, because I have spent about 550 bucks on makeup and beauty stuff in the past 3 weeks or so.th_devil.gif

post #2316 of 3661

Winthrop44...what is your favorite velvet so far? Thanks for the swatches!!

post #2317 of 3661

My favorite so far is La Raffinee, but I really love La Fascinante and L'Exuberante too. What I don't love is how my lips feel after trying them all on & taking them off repeatedly in 1 afternoon. lol.gif

 

Michelle, I have not been using a liner or a brush, I'm too lazy, but with the more intense/darker ones I tap the lipstick on and smoosh it around with my finger to wear it as more of a stain rather than full-on.

Those are my favorite 3 too greengrin.gif

 

My bottom lip was actually bleeding in one spot after trying so many ls & glosses on.

post #2319 of 3661

Oh that's awful! I think my top lip is not far from that. I put on some balm before and it really stung.

post #2320 of 3661

Hope your lips heal soon, winthrop and elegant! Sounds painful! I have dry lips and if I forget to apply something moisturising for a few hours, they will hurt and the lower lip will split in the middle and bleed a bit. I'm really torn as to whether I should buy more velvets. I love the finish and the colours, but they aren't moisturising enough.

 

Michelle - Yay for getting the velvets tomorrow!

 

Shontay and Ingenue, great that you found the right shade for perfection lumiere! It's so hard to find a foundation with the shade and finish we like.

post #2321 of 3661

Okay, so I know I said I wasn't interested in the colors when the Rouge Allure Velvet Matte first came out here... but now, as usual when you ladies are talking about it... *tempted* girlhaha.gif

 

Shontay, you look lovely (as always), and your skin looks so luminous. Pretty heart.gif. I was wondering on how it would look like on someone with medium to darker complexion, I couldn't find it anywhere before, thanks for posting your look :).

Here's a swatch I made the other day... I'm so clueless with trying out new lipsticks b/c I don't want to test them out on my lips, but I still can't figure out how it would look b/c of my pigmented lips. I love the look of #39 La Somptueuse (wants something red-ish) and #34 La Raffinee (thanks to Shontay). Any advice? Do you think I'm on the right track?

post #2322 of 3661

I love all the swatches - thanks ladies!!  Mine are supposed to be here tomorrow.....can't wait!!  cheerleader.gif

 

MissQQ, so glad you found your Gardenia!!  I know how frustrating that can be - and like the *ahem* mature ladies here, when I lose something, it is typically in front of me as well cooldude.gif.

 

Shontay, fabulous look!!

 

Sounds like we're forming a train to makeup addict hell.......party.gif

 

Michelle, you and I can be the founding members of the saran wrap lips club........friends.gif  drinkup.gif

 

Power came back on night before last - I had a crazy day yesterday catching up on all the things I couldn't do without it and hot water....laundry, dishwashing, work stuff.....I'm just grateful it's back on.  Only about 70% of my town even has power, so I'm counting my blessings!!!

post #2323 of 3661

More swatches hot off the presses...err memory card:

Elegant and Gail -- I can't believe your lips are so sore from trying on so many colors!  Ouch.  The price we pay for beauty!!  Thank you both for sharing all of your info and swatches!

 

MissQQ -- thanks -- I'm excited about getting my Velvets tomorrow.  It has been a very stressful week, and I need a little treat!

 

Cheryl -- so you have Saran Wrap lips, too?  LOL  We'll be getting our lippies on the same day!  So glad you have power back -- what a relief!

 

Astrid -- all of those swatches look pretty!  I keep wanting more . . .

Wow! Talk about suffering for beauty! I wore La Sensuelle last night and it felt really lovely. The one thing I would say is that, for a matte formula, I don't find these particularly long-lasting. Lipsticks don't tend to last that long on me anyway and my lips were a bit dry, which probably didn't help, but I found that the elements that make the formula comfortable to wear also tended to make it fade fairly quickly. I don't really care, since wear time on lipstick is never a factor for me... I'm in love with these...

post #2326 of 3661

Finally saw the Chanel Velvets in person...

 

Ravissante is a big fat no for me. Way too yellowy pink... not good. But the other colors that I ordered are going to be really flattering. I got all the reds and Raffinee.

 

I went home with L'Exuberante. Very good fuchsia pink... and more fuchsia than Carthage... so I'm happy.

post #2327 of 3661

Not the greatest picture, because I'd been wearing it for a few hours here and the light was crappy in my office, but this is La Sensuelle on me again. I should be able to post more swatches tomorrow. Today it's so dark and grey that I don't think you could see anything.

It's deeper/ more intense when freshly applied.

post #2328 of 3661

again a beautiful look katred!

 

I am slowly advancing on a red velvet.. I got all the pinks and beiges.. lol

 

enjoy!

 

ingenue.. enjoy darlin.. they are luscious.

post #2329 of 3661

Katred - THAT is such a beautiful pic of you!!!!! Very elegant eyelove.gif & soft looking.

post #2330 of 3661
Ok. I just got La Ravissante and just as I predicted, I LOVE it! It's so flattering and just lovely. I can't decide which velvet I love more now. I would post a pic but I don't have my face on. lol.gif That's scary because hello no eyebrows! Maybe tomorrow. I've just decided that I love these things so much that I probably will haul more anyway. Yes, even the red that I clearly don't need. I love how these things glide on and give full color. No need to go around and around your lips for coverage and it's so soft. love.gif
post #2331 of 3661

Wow Katred you look gorgeous! I love that picture of you... very elegant.

 

I can't wait for my goodies to get here... I got a shipping notice from Chanel. In the meantime, I'll stay happy with L'Exuberante.

 

Shontay I HAVE to see Ravissante on you. It looked downright awful on me.

post #2332 of 3661

Agree Shontay.. the formulation for these ls is amazing.

 

I am going to succumb to the reds too.

post #2333 of 3661

Beautiful, Kate - what a gorgeous picture.  And a fabulous color for you!!

 

Can't wait to see your photo, Shontay!!  I laughed at no eyebrows.  Now *I* have no eyebrows........

Hey, you might hate it on me, too. Sometimes it's just a matter of preference. I'll try to get a pic up, though.
post #2335 of 3661

You look gorgeous katred!  Such a perfect shade for you!

post #2336 of 3661

Gorgeous picture Katred -- love that lip color on you heart.gif

post #2337 of 3661

Does anyone know of any free shipping codes going on right now with Chanel?  I really should have ordered that lip bag . . .  I can't get myself to pay $10 for shipping . . . 

post #2338 of 3661

It's all free Michelle. No code required. Just remember to check off the box for the gift box & card.  Although I think they said it's not available for "gifts"...I think that would include the bag??? Can you order a second item also?  Maybe call and ask them what the deal is....

post #2339 of 3661

Thanks Gail -- I'll have to give them a call (that is always an adventure trying to get the low down from Chanel.com LOL!)

 

 

post #2340 of 3661

Got my Ravissante. I really like it on! On my lips its a soft slight pink slight burnt coral. I have some menswear sienna colored  plaid pencil skirt & cropped trousers that I think this might look great with. Or, my black pajamas lol.gif

I'm loving these!!! They cover my lips nicely.
