Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends


Hello, everyone!


March is marching out as April is waiting around the corner.

March has been fun and busy, filled with culinary experiences, car free day, and more.


Festival Jajanan Bango 2019
I have been venturing in Festival Jajanan Bango 2019, a 2-day event held by Bango, one of Indonesian leading brands for sweet soy sauce, where many famous and popular Indonesian street food vendors and restaurants were gathered together in one place. 
We went here with my brother and my sister-in-law.
Sate Padang!

It was packed indeed!

And many of the food sold here are people's favorite!
No wonder we had long lines here and there.


Car Free Day 2019

Before that, we enjoyed Car Free Day in Sudirman - Senayan Area and had fun walking and jogging around this place. My kids came along and after walking around for about 1 hour, they complained as the weather got hotter and hotter.

Well, that's our weekend in Jakarta.
How's your week?

For sure, I will now invite you to join our weekly link party, Wonderful Wednesday, with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and friends. Join us!

Beauty: Chanel Allure Velvet Lipstick no. 40 La Sensuelle


Review Chanel Allure Velvet Lipstick no. 40 La Sensuelle

Here come another favorite lipstick of mine!
Well, needless to say that lipsticks will always be part of my favorite collection!

Lipstik memang telah lama menjadi kloekst istimewa untukku.
Entah kenapa, oku yang semula tomboy dan ngga suka dandan, at certain point of time  jadi menikmati pemerah bibir yang beraneka warna dan jenis ini.
Jadi setiap ada perjalanan ke beberapa negara yang biasanya bagian dari pekerjaan aku (yang lumayan melelahkan itu), aku suka menghadiahi diri sendiri dengan 'jajan' lipstik favorit. And that, my friend, is a simple way to keep yourself happy.

To those who have been reading my blog before might remember my take on Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick no.34, La Rafinée. For me, Chanel lipstick is highly recommended because not only it looks good on your lips, but most importantly, it feels good as well.

This time, I have the similar seri of lipstick but in different shade.
Introducing Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick no.40, La Sensuelle.

Kalau sebelumnya saya mereview La Rafinée yang cenderung soft and nude, kali ini saya pakai yang lebih bold yaaa  

Now, let's start with the review. shall we?

THE LIPSTICK

The lipstick I have here is Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick no.40, La Sensuelle

Again, allow me to share what they say about this lipstick.
 "This non-drying matte lipstick glides on lips with intensely rich, long-wearing colour and a sumptuously soft, velvet matte finish". Directly quoted from the website, I have to say I do agree with it! 

It is non-drying matte.
It has bold color that sticks for hours.
Yet it feels comfortable on my lips.

Dan velvet matte finish itu asli cantik.
Cantik karena memang terlihat bold and matte tapi tidak membuat kering bibir kita tercinta,apalagi sampai terkleupas atau berdarah seperti beberapa lipstik matte merk lain.


La Sensuelle!


And the composition of this lipstick is "mother-of-pearl pigments deliver rich colour and a soft finish. Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter comfort and moisturize." Still from Chanel's website, that's more of the description about this beauty product.
That is why this lipstick feels wonderful,- nice and soft on your lips, yet looks beautifully matte with saturated color.

La Sensuelle means obviously, sensual, in French.
So I guess this color will make you feel sexy and sensual.
Ad psst, don't tell anyone, I do feel sexy wearing this lipstick LOL.





THE SWATCH


Here's how Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick no. 40 La Sensuelle looks on my complexion. 


cheers...


It looks slightly different when I put it on my lips and when I swatch it on my hand.



And this is how it looks when I put it on hand




THE PACKAGING

The packaging is, as you can guess, sleek and elegant. 
Black carton box with big gold font for its name and white ones for the information and the ingredients.
Not too fancy, I guess (I have seen more deluxe one) but it serves the purpose.

As for the lipstick itself, it is put in the metal tube where you need to press the bottom part to take the cap out. Roll the tube up to get the lipstick out as usual, and once you're done, roll it down then put the cap back on until it clicks.
Simple.
And I like it.


The packaging

THE INGREDIENTS

As I can read in the box, -finely printed of course, the lipstick is made of mixture of, among others, Isononyl isononanoate, dicaprylyl carbonate, synthetic wax, jojoba esters, shea butter,  and more :).  All those active ingredients contribute to the moisturising of our lips.

The lipstick is of course made in France.


The ingredients


THE PRICE

The price for this liquid matte is USD 37, before taxes and shipping.
It is equivalent to around Rp 530.000,- with USD 1 = Rp 14.300,-
And the most important part is it feels sooo good on my lips!
Yes, another 'comfortable'  lipstick I can put on and on again.
It gives you velvet finish and matte but not drying.
So, I guess that's the reason why it feels great.
It may not stay that long, compared to others

Depending on where you buy it, the percentage of the VAT you have to pay and/or shipping fee you have to pay will add to the final price.
You can pay slightly cheaper price if you buy it in the duty free shop or at the airport.

fFor this one, I  buy it in my favorite shop, Sephora, and you can definitely check it on www.chanel.com or any major department stores here in NYC, like Macy's, Saks 5th Avenue, Barney's, Bergdorf and Goodman and more. They also have it in Chanel boutique.


THE PERKS AND THE TESTIMONY

I love it because the color is so me!
Yup, so me, who loves bold colors.

And the most important part is it feels sooo GOOD on my lips!
Yes, another 'comfortable'  lipstick I can put on and on again.
It gives you velvet finish and matte but not drying at all.
I don't have to put lipgloss before or after putting this one on because my lips are fine.
So, I guess that's the reason why it feels great.
It may not stay that long, compared to others


THE NO-NO

Like it or not, Chanel Lipstick IS quite expensive.


That's the only problem I have here LOL!
Well, it's not the most expensive lipstick I have ever had, but loving it and using it most of the time means I have to buy more :).

That's the only no-no I have in mind.

So, finalement,  I give  Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick no. 40 La Sensuelle the score 9 out of 10.  Similar to the other color I have from Chanel as well.

Semoga reviewnya membantu dan you ladies ngga bosen ya dengan review lipstikku.
Don't forget, ditunggu postingan lipstik-lipstik tercinta berikutnya yang pastinya masih menanti berderet dengan damai untuk direview satu per satu.
Muuuaaah et amusez-vous bien!
