Readers, this makeup news item almost escaped me (but better late than never, I hope). When Chanel introduced its Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, they very discreetly gave Saks an exclusive — and absolutely gorgeous — shade: Liberte.
And then — oh, the humanity — Chanel withdrew the color. It was probably meant to be limited edition all along, but since I was late to discover it existed, I was horrified to learn it was also being taken away.
Liberte is a warm pink, halfway between Imaginaire and Genie. Like all Rouge Allure Extrait de Glosses, it is $32 — and if you find one still for sale, don’t hesitate to scoop it up.
