The Rouge Allure Velvets promise to be pigmented, lightweight, moisturising 'luminous matte' lipsticks. In the past the only formulas I've found to work for my chronically dry lips have been Lancome Colour Design Matte, Shiseido Glowing Matte and Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Matte and so far, these new Chanel Velvets measure up. :)
Chanel has chosen to release 8 shades in each country, out of a possible 11. In Hong Kong they consist of:
31 La Furtive
32 La Ravissante
33 La Distinguée
34 La Raffinée
36 La Câline
38 La Fascinante
(39 La Somptueuse, 40 La Sensuelle and 41 L'Exquise are missing.)
Alongside these, Chanel has released two new shades of Extrait de Gloss: 64 L'Exubérance and 65 Euphorique which I've also swatched. The beige gloss swatch is the old 51 Insouciance which was sneakily substituted for the limited-edition 517 Triomphal in the display; I'll attempt to swatch that another day.
Everything is one-swipe except for 31 La Furtive and 51 Insouciance which required two each.
