Oh look – another Chanel lipstick post (shock horror!). Today’s spotlight is on L’Exeuberance (*swoon*). I first stumbled upon this shade months ago but at the time resisted the urge to splurge as I was being a tad spendy. Fast forward a couple months and I now have this beauty in my hot little hands – BIG thanks to my dear sister who kindly gifted it to me.
L’Exuberance sits perfectly between a dark rose and bright fuchsia pink. It’s the perfect pick-me-up shade especially on those days I’m feeling a little ‘meh’. It manages to lift the sallowness out of my face making me look more
alive chipper. I find these sorts of shades really suit my olive complexion, especially when I haven’t seen the sun days on end.
I’ve probably mentioned in my other posts that Rouge Allure Velvets yield rich colour. If you’ve seen bits of my lipstick collection (check out my lipstick tag post) you’ll see that I have a go bold or go home attitude about lipsticks – needless to say, L’Exeuberance doesn’t disappoint. If you’re after some serious wow factor, amp it up straight from the bullet or if you’re a little timid wear it as a sheer wash (or mixed with a balm underneath).
As I’ve said in many a post, the Rouge Allure Velvet line is extremely comfortable to wear and the most moisturising matte I’ve ever tried. I find the formula isn’t overly drying and actually feels quite creamy on my lips.
What’s your favourite pick-me-up shade when you’re feeling a little ‘meh’?
