As the holiday collections start to hit shelves in department stores, I find myself always drawn to the Chanel counter. This time I picked up the liquid lipstick Rouge Allure Laque in Empire, a medium pink with peach undertones and flecks of gold shimmer. The formula is exactly what it says it is- a liquid lipstick. The packaging comes in the form of what appears to be a mini lipgloss, but once applied you can see how little of this product you need for opaqueness. You can also immediately feel the difference between this and a regular gloss, as a gloss would go on much thicker. There is no shine to this formula, but the added gold shimmer of Empire gives the lips a good and subtle sheen. Chanel's Empire retails at $32 and is (unfortunately) limited edition. I get a long weartime with this formula since it's more a lipstick than a gloss. The color is also universally flattering to all skintones. Bottom line? Pick this up or add it to your wish list for Christmas as it won't be back on shelves after 2011. Pictured below is my FOTD using Chanel's Rouge Allure Laque in Empire. Are you putting this on your Christmas list? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
