While masks are a must-have whenever you’re out and about, you can’t deny that a lipstick is still a makeup staple that can boost your mood with just a swipe. Take vibrant new shades coupled with an exclusive design and heart rates will still spike, just as yours will with Chanel’s latest Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion 2021 collection.
At first glance, you’ll spot the lipstick’s signature golden cap stamped with the familiar silhouette of the house’s beloved lion icon. The lion was Gabrielle Chanel’s lucky charm (she was also a Leo), and she would adorn her creations with it.
Gorgeous packaging aside, the line-up offers 8 new moisturising matte shades, each representing a trait of the lion’s character: passion, audacity, instinct and boldness. Think reds, oranges and beiges for every mood that will bring elegance or a majestic presence. Some favourites include Beige Ardent, a light brown hue that’s the perfect my-lips-but-better shade, Rouge Fauve in a brick red that you can rely on to brighten your look, and Rouge Vie for a deep rosebud if you’re inspired to try something richer.
If you’re heading out with a mask, a tip to minimise transfer would be to powder to set your lipstick. And if you’re staying in, there’s no reason why you can’t wear some colour around the house to spice things up a little.
Priced at SGD56, the limited-edition Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion 2021 lipsticks are now available at Chanel’s Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques in Singapore.
