Chanel Rouge Allure Fall 2009: Clandestine and Amusing


It's nearly impossible to go wrong with a Chanel lipstick. My choice from the six new shades for the season were Clandestine and Amusing. Neither one goes with Murano, the the eye quad palette (though braver souls without an 80s trauma might be willing to try Amusing with this strong eye look) , which calls for a more muted color, but they both go with me.

Amusing (left) is a brown based rose. It's dark enough to make a statement but still office-appropriate.

Clandestine (right) is a much warmer color- it's brick red but doesn't cross the line towards orange. It calls to mind a fall day and lights up the face. Please remember to exfoliate and use a liner, as Clandestine is quite red.

Both are creamy, comfortable and give excellent coverage. Amusing has a superb staying power that even resists a cup of tea.

Bottom line: Love.

Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks ($30 each) are available from the nicer department stores and Chanel.com. I bought them at Neiman Marcus.

  1. The Clandestine is a beautiful color that goes well with the name. And yes, who could go wrong with a Chanel lipstick?
