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 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.


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


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 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.
And I like it.

The packaging


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 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 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.


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


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!

Review Lancome Color Design - All Done Up

review Lsncome Color Design All Done Up

Hello, beautiful people.

Back to my review and this time I have one of my mom's and my favorite lipsticks from Lancôme Paris. I bet you have heard of this brand before, right? Very well known for its skin care products, Lancôme has been launching many series of lipsticks, including the last three collections I reviewed on my YouTube channel and here.

Let me start with All Done Up from Lancôme Paris Color Design. 
Lancôme Paris Color Design comes in 42 shades and different finish, including cream, matte, shimmer, 

The packaging

Lancôme has long been known for its premium products and you can easily recognise that from their packaging. This lipstick is wrapped in beautiful, sturdy box in shiny silver, with embossed brand's name and Lancôme signature rose on top of the box. It's very pretty indeed. 

here's the packaging
The swatch

Here is the swatch for you to see.
The shade of this one is more like shady pink, so it's not too bold yet it's beautifully freshen your look.

the lips swatch for All Done Up is the pink one on the left side :)

The texture

This lipstick is creamy, very moisturising and has a bit glossy effect.
It says it has sensational effects, a lip color with smooth hold.

It claims to "deliver long-lasting color and wearability", as well as providing full coverage and lasting shine with one application. Moreover, you don't have to worry about dry lips, as it has non-drying formula that makes your lips comfortable all day long. 
I have to say I do agree with that. It is comfortable and full coverage only in one application. Yet, it doesn't stay too long which is fine by me.

I guess it will be perfect for your daily use, as the shade is pretty much neutral and likeable, plus it's not too heavy as it's not matte or long-stay.  it is also transferable.

Very moisturizing
The ingredients

As for the ingredients, here's what I pasted from the box and the website:

Polybutene, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, octyldodecyl neopentanoate, isostearyl isostearate, triisostearin, cera microcristallina / microcrystalline wax / cire microcristalline, peg-45/dodecyl glycol copolymer, polyethylene, disteardimonium hectorite, tin oxide, calcium aluminum borosilicate, calcium sodium borosilicate, silica, alumina, synthetic fluorphlogopite, polyethylene terephthalate, acrylates copolymer, octyldodecyl/ppg-3 myristyl ether dimer dilinoleate, bht, [+/- may contain / peut contenir, ci 15850 / red 6, ci 15850 / red 7, ci 15850 / red 7 lake, ci 15985 / yellow 6 lake, ci 19140 / yellow 5 lake, ci 42090 / blue 1 lake, ci 45380 / red 22 lake, ci 45410 / red 28 lake, ci 75470 / carmine, ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499 / iron oxides, ci 77891 / titanium dioxide, mica.

The price

I bought this one for USD 25 before taxes, so around USD 28 after the taxes.
I would love to repurchase but perhaps I can try other shades in matte finish.

So, do you think you will like this lipstick as well?
How do you like the shade?
Will you buy it?

Review Lipstick YSL Rouge Pur Couture Pink Rhapsody

Disclaimer: this review is purely made from the heart, without any sponsors whatsoever, as I love the product. All opinion expressed are genuine and kindly note that the result on color and durability of the product may vary. 

Review Lipstick YSL Rouge Pur Couture 
Pink Rhapsody no. 57

Hello, beautiful people!
It's been ages that I haven't submitted my review on my favorite lipstick!
So, here comes the question again....What's the color of your lipstick today?

As I have mentioned in so many postings before, for me lipstick IS NOT just a piece of cosmetics you keep in your bag or pouch with you all the time.
And I really mean it when I say all the time.
Lipstick is INDEED a statement.
So for me, my lipstick is A BOLD statement of who I am and how comfortable I am to be myself.

Then from the stack of boxes filled with my favorite beauty products, I would like to introduce you to Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Rouge Pur Couture Pink Rhapsody no 57.
Yes, this time it is pink.
Not purple :).

Some of you might wonder why not purple, as my previous parade of favorite lipstick of mine. Oh ya, feel free to read my previous review like Huda Beauty in Famous, Kat Von D in Wolvesmouth (dan warna ini sepertinya udah discontinued, hiks), Kylie in Kourt K and Chanel in La Rafinee. So I guess, with so many purple shades I have, I want to have something different and pink sounds like a great idea! Besides, I can always mix it with other colors.

Sudah ada yang pernah coba lipstick yang satu ini?
YSL beauty memang sudah mengeluarkan banyak seri lipstick dan hamper semuanya Aku suka pakai. Mamaku juga suka soalnya.
Kalau sudah, mungkin dengan warna lain, kalian suka ngga dengan lipstik ini?
If you ask me, my answer is aku sukaaaaa :). 
Hampir semua lipstick yang aku review di blog adalah lipstick favoritku.
I know it might be a bit confusing as I keep mentioning so many brands and mostly I love them all! Tapi rasanya sah-sah aja kan kalau kita suka dengan beraneka merk dan warna lipstick, soalnya aku juga punya lipstick banyak aja karena pakainya pun bergantian. Tergantung mood, baju yang dipakai, dan occasion.
Betul ngga sih? 
Temen-temen juga sama kan #mencariteman?

So, ready to hear more lipstick review from me?

Here's my take on  YSL Rouge Pur Couture Pink Rhapsody


This lipstick contains of 1 (one) pure colour satiny radiance Lipstick (approximately 3.8 ml or 3.8 g or 0.13 fl. oz) as mentioned in the box. It is made in France and we can use it up to 24 months after we open it.

Let's try YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Pink Rhapsody

The price for this lipstick is USD 38 (langsung dikalikan sendiri ajaaa ya dengan Rupiah), before taxes and shipping.

I buy it in my favorite shop, Sephora, and of course you can also get in many leading department stores. You can always check it on YSL website. Aku sendiri suka juga beli di duty free shops yang ada di berbagai airport. Harganya sedikit lebih murah karena bebas bea dan pajak.


YSL has long been known as a leading fashion brand and beauty products which dominates the world's runway. With their long standing reputation, no wonder if this collection comes in 23 different shades. From brilliant red, fuschia and purple, to gradation of soft pink and nude colors.

As for the lipstick department, YSL has launched several series, such as YSL Tatouage Couture; Rouge pur Couture (the best seller); Rouge pur Couture the Slim; Rough Volupte Shine; Rouge Volupte and Rouge Tint-in Balm.

The Rouge pur Couture serie


Here's how Pink Rhapsody looks on my complexion.

And this is how it looks when I put it on my lips

I don't really feel the need to use any lip liner, because the color is already bold and it has satiny finish. But if you want to have a more dramatic and bolder look, using lip liner will definitely give a better, bolder contour. 


I love it because of it's fresh color and it's super comfortable on my lips.
I have to confess that I have been using too many matte liquid lipstick so having this satiny finish is a good change. And I love how it looks on me.

the carving of YSL initials is one of the signatures

Most of the time, we are tempted by its wonderful shades and long-lasting nature, but never forget that your lips will pay the price for it.

The shape of the lipstick helps us apply the lipstick steadily and neatly on our lips.
Once you try it you will agree with me, I suppose.

As I can read in the box,- although it took a long time for me to do so because the letters are super small,- the lipstick is made of mixture of, among others, propylene glycol dibenzoate, octyldodecanol, stearyl/PPG-3 Myristye, Ether dimer dilinoleate, neopentyl glycol diheptanoate, Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxana, calcium carbonate, magnesium silicate, calcium magnesium borosilicate and more :).

The lipstick is made in France.

Can you actually read these ingredients? :)


I do have sort of a list of the No-No.

First, it's quite expensive. 
With so many choices  of lipsticks out there ranging from USD 20 - 30, the price of this one is higher than that. But again, people, it' YSL. And Yves Saint Laurent stands for quality and top-notch products. So, I think it is still worth it.
Moreover, it doesn't stay more than 4 hours.
I mean, it is not a long wear or matte finish, so it is easily wiped out.
Of course you can apply it again but that means you have to bring it everywhere.

Then, the packaging is beautifully made of shiny metal. It's beautiful indeed but it becomes dirty easily. I usually have my finger prints and skin oil on it :). So make sure you clean it up after holding it.

And that's it. 
So all in all, I still love it and I give Lipstick YSL Rouge Pur Couture Pink Rhapsody the score 8 out of 10.Aku tetap suka dengan lipstick ini dan aku pasti akan beli lagi, walaupun mungkin dengan warna lain.
Do you like this lipstick as well?
Which one is your favorite so far?
Ditunggu postingan lipstik-lipstik tercinta berikutnya ya.
Tons of kisses and muuuaaah muaaah from me.
