Chanel Notes De Printemps – Rouge Allure Fougueuse and Rouge Coco Triomphe Review and Swatches

January 2, 2014

Chanel Rouge Allure 138 Fougueuse and Rouge Coco 60 Triomphe are my picks for the lipsticks from the Chanel Notes De Printemps Spring Collection. I always gravitate towards fresh and pretty lip colors that goes well with my everyday makeup so naturally I picked up these two stunners.


In general, Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Color has a semi-opaque finish with a satin sheen. The texture is moderately hydrating, silky smooth and not as slippery as those super “buttery lipsticks”, so they are easier to apply if you are on the go (without a mirror) and it has decent staying power. It doesn’t feel moisturizing enough on the lips compared to the ones with an emollient texture. However, rest assured that it won’t enhance any dry lines and flakes on the lips.


Rouge Coco 60 Triomphe is a beautiful pink with coral undertone. As it is semi-opaque I applied several coats to show the true color in the swatch below.


In general, Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color is more opaque than Rouge Coco, and the color is also more intense and brighter. It also has a very smooth and rich texture with a satin sheen. It has amazing lasting power with up to 5-6 hours of wear, and the trade-off is that it feels slightly dry on the lips after wearing it for a while (as with most long lasting lipsticks).


Rouge Allure 138 Fougueuse is a cool bright pink with blue undertone – a great color to complement any pink blushes in spring!

hi!! i bought many items from this collection including both lip colours that you wonderfully reviewed. could you please suggest specific eye colors to go with these lipsticks. i’m very pale and am thinking these colours are way too bright for me. did the eyeshadows from this collection interest you? i’m also thinking too pink for me. maybe chanel’s raffinement eyequad from last spring? please let me know then what you would use in place including blush. thankyou very much!! xo.

Hi wendy no I didn’t purchase the e/s quad from this collection as it looked quite similar to raffinement! Yes I would probably pair RA fougueuse with raffinement and Chanel tweed pink as the blush. I will be doing a FOTD in my next post 🙂

Both look lovely on you. I’ll have to check them out!

Triomphe looks beautiful on you.
May I ask what are your favorite Chanel lipstick formulas? All of them seem to dry out my lips especially Rouge Coco.


Reika January 5, 2014 at 12:24 pm

Hi Rena my fav Chanel lipstick formula has to be Chanel coco shine as I find them quite hydrating. Have you tried it?


Melissa January 3, 2014 at 1:56 am

These colors are gorgeous do you apply a lip balm or gloss or are they naturally glossy looking?
Thank You


Reika January 5, 2014 at 12:29 pm

Hi Melissa no I didn’t use lip balm or gloss. Both lipsticks have a satin finish, and I applied several coats in the swatch.

I want the new RA! How does it compare to the discontinued Chanel RA Insolente?


Reika January 5, 2014 at 12:44 pm

Hi Chel sorry I don’t have Insolente, so I can’t compare…

OMG!!! These lippies are both so pretty. I super like their colors and they seem perfect for everyday wear. I will def check on these.

Definitely like the “Rouge Coco 60 Triomphe” the best. It looks great on your fair skin, too!
