The new Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Colour and Shine Lipgloss in One Click have been released in Australia recently. I picked up the color 13 Affriolant and 16 Extase. They are the latest lip gloss line from Chanel that wear like a lipstick with intense pigmentation and lacquered shine. I absolutely love Chanel lip glosses in general and the Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss are my holy grail lip glosses (reviewed in this post), so I was eager to see how this new line performed.
Let’s kick off the review with its ultra modern and unique packaging. Chanel packaging never ceases to impress me, and I greatly appreciate their packaging evolving throughout time for a modern take whilst maintaining a classic Chanel look. These new lipglosses are housed in a sleek black lacquered tubes, and to use the gloss you just click the base to push out the product itself which comes with a gold base. I think the design has a very interesting innovation to it and makes it convenient to use with just one click.
The new Chanel Rouge Allure Colour and Shine Lip Gloss delivers the color of a lipstick and the lacquered shine of a lip gloss. The texture is smooth, rich and creamy as it adheres to the lips rather than being runny. The beveled double-sided, flocked applicator allows for ultra-precise definition. It has a lacquered cream shine that makes your lips fuller and more plumped. They are not sticky, but it doesn’t feel weightless on the lips which is my only gripe. Compared to my HG Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, this new line obviously has much better color payoff for a more intense and sophisticated glossy finish, and you never need to wear a lipstick underneath this gloss. Whereas the Extrait de Gloss is more sheer and luminous with a jelly-like gloss finish, they are more young and great for people who don’t like to wear too much color on the lips.

13 Affriolant is a coral pink. When it comes to picking lip colors I tend to stay in my comfort zone and Affriolant is just the right color that I would reach for everyday so I get the most value out it!16 Extase is a bright rosey pink that is neither too cool nor too warm. Again this is a fool proof color that would complement any makeup look and makes my complexion more brightened and alive.
