Chanel Santal and Ming Rouge Allure Laque
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Discover the pure indulgence of liquid lip lacquer, a colour innovation that could only come from CHANEL. Intensely rich colour and shine last for hours — and the temptingly creamy formula conditions as it hydrates lips. All this, with full coverage, in eight stunning shades.
Like mentioned, there are only eight shades available: Coromandel, Imperial, Dynastie, Dragon, Ming, Santal, Phoenix and Mandarin. The two most wearable shades are Santal and Ming, which is why I chose both!
**NOTE** I purchased product TESTERS. So the packaging will differ when purchased at a counter. Click HERE to view more details on the Chanel website.

I originally became really interested in these lip lacquers from Christine of Temptalia. She mentioned on a few occasions that one of her favorite products of all time is Chanel’s Lip Laque in the shade Dragon. After reading a little more information on the lip products, they sounded amazing. After digging out swatches of each of the shades, and seeing how creamy and opaque they look, I had to give a couple a try.

Santal is a warm, rosy peach with a very subtle golden shimmer. On my natural lips, the color appears a little more orange, but when I calm my lips down with a little concealer or MAC Lip Erase, the color looks more rosy. I think it’s a fabulous every day shade for just about every skintone.
Ming is a medium neutral pink with fine shimmer. I find it difficult to wear certain undertones of pink without looking too unnatural, but this pink works well with my skintone. With one swipe, it gives a “My lips but better” natural pink flush.
I absolutely love the formula of the lip glosses. They are completely opaque with a few swipes, aren’t thick or sticky, are moisturizing, have a shiny finish and has pretty average lasting power on the lips. The biggest set back is the price at $32. It’s completely up to you if you think it’s worth it or not, but I do think they are fantastic and worth testing out at your local counter.
