CHANEL Rouge Allure #99 ‚Pirate‘ + Dupe

If I would have to name 2 must-have lipsticks, it would be ‚Creme’d Nude‘ by Mac and ‚Pirate‘ by Chanel. Both are pretty pricey though.

Today’s post is all about the Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in #99 Pirate. It’s gorgeous but pretty pricey (it costs about 33€). So if you don’t want to spend that much on a lipstick, I have a good dupe for you.

On the Chanel website it says

One red. One style.
 A woman's allure is defined.
 With its line of rich and luminous shades, 
 more intense than ever. 
 ROUGE ALLURE offers a radiant and satiny makeup 
 result with optimal hold, in an ultra-smooth, 
 meltaway texture. Nestled in its sleek black case, 
 ROUGE ALLURE revealsits full colour intensity 
 and feminity in one simple click.

The Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick comes in the famous ‚click click‘ packaging. Pirate is a wonderful blue based red. It is very pigmented: one swipe is all it takes to give you a excellent color payoff. This is not for the shy.

Among many pigmented creamy lipsticks, this one is surprisingly easy to apply. You don’t necessarily need a lip brush. What’s great about Pirate is, that the deep blue-red makes the skin, as well as the teeth, instantly look brighter. It’s my Holy Grail red lipstick.

A good dupe for the Rouge Allure Pirate, that you can get at any German drugstore (for around 3€), is the Manhattan XTreme Last & Shine in #45G Intense Red.

The Manhattan Lipstick is clearly not as creamy and pigmented as the Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick, but the color – as it appears on the lips – is nearly exactly the same.
