Review: Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Pirate

Chanel sent me a most delightful holiday gift this year - a mini lipstick!  I am assuming they did this for all regular customers.  I've shockingly never tried the Rouge Allure formula.  It is marketed as longwearing and full coverage.  This shade, Pirate, is a pink-based red.  Not a color I would normally reach for, but certainly appropriate for the holiday season.  Unfortunately, the swatch says it all.  It applies unevenly and is definitely not full coverage.  It does dry nicely into a stain, so I can vouch for the longwearing feature, but the fuss to get a non-streaky application is not really worth it.
