Chanel Camelia Grenat & Camelia Carmin Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches

Camelia Grenat (617)

Chanel Camelia Grenat (617) Rouge Allure Velvet ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly over my lips without dragging. The lipstick felt lightweight with a thinner, velvety texture that didn’t have a lot of slip or feel traditionally creamy, though it was comfortable to apply and to wear. It stayed on nicely for almost six hours and felt a smidgen moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.12 oz. – $333.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Allure Velvet formula is supposed to be a “non-drying matte lipstick” with “intensely rich, long-wearing colour” and has a “velvet matte finish.” Over time, I felt like the formula has improved and is actually non-drying (the original launch did not wear well on me) to lightly drying (seen more in shades that have lasted six to eight hours). The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but is usually semi-opaque to opaque with a semi-matte to satin finish. The texture had a velvety, glide-on feel that doesn’t feel particularly creamy or wet, yet the lipstick is comfortable to wear over the four to six hours it typically lasts for. Like most Chanel lip products, they have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

Camelia Carmin (627)

Chanel Camelia Carmin (627) Rouge Allure Velvet ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deeper red with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had a bit more slip to it than others in this formula, and it resulted in a more noticeable sheen, too. Otherwise, the texture was still very lightweight, thin but not clingy, and easy to work with as the color applied with opaque coverage in a single, fluid stroke. It wore well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt hydrating over time.
