My favorite lipglosses – Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

August 17, 2011

Ever since I started blogging, I plan my weekends based on the availability of sunshine. Last weekend was a sunny day so I took the opportunity to swatch the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss which are my all time favorite lip glosses. Trust me, I am not biased just because they are by Chanel. I have had a fair share of lip glosses and these glosses are by far the best I have tried. They come in the most flattering shades and I have collected  all the pink shades from the line.

The packaging reflects the high price tag for a lip gloss. Different to their lipsticks, these glosses come in a weighty black lacquered glass tube. As I have said earlier, I feel my money is justified if a product is packaged beautifully and carries some weight, as opposed to the cheaper drugstore makeup. All of the ones I own contain no shimmers and are semi opaque. The colors are rich enough to show up on the lips whilst still showing a hint of your natural lip tone – which is exactly what I am after from a lip gloss. The finish is a cross between luminous and jelly like. They also felt extremely hydrating to the lips – as soon as they are applied on my usual dry lips, they look instantly more plumped and the appearance of lines and chapped skin is gone.

Let’s start with Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in 57 Insolence - a bright yet wearable pink

Bottom line: All shades are extremely wearable and would work well with any skin coloring. Highly recommend if you prefer lipglosses that provide just the right amount of color to your lips with a high gloss shine that is not shimmery nor frosty. They are non sticky and wear for about 3 to 4 hours. Of course they can be layered with lipsticks for a more dramatic look.

The colors are extremely flattering on you. I love “Confidence” out of the bunch. “Insolence” pops out from the swatches but not sure if it will compliment me though.

Reply

Reika August 19, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Although Insolence is a cool pink it is flattering on yellow based complexion. You should give it a try :)

Hi! all of the shades look so pretty on you. I passed up on these a while a go because i found them sheer, but now you made me want to revisit them at the counter! I like Imaginaire too :)

the 1st two look the same on and the 2nd two look like one another on, so looks like only one or two would actually be needed. they are pretty. I LOVE your eye makeup, you look great

Reply

Reika August 19, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Thanks Vonnie. For the eye makeup I used chanel quad in spice in case you are curious :)

I just got Insolence a few weeks ago (due to reading Liz’s recommendation that it is her favorite gloss on Cafe Makeup), and I already love it although I haven’t had a chance to wear it too much.

I love how all the colors above look on you though, and they are extremely helpful for me because we are similar in coloring. Have you tried any of the more intense colors? I’m intrigued to see how it would look in a red or other intense shade.

Reply

Reika August 19, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Insolence is gorgeous on Liz! But it works well with yellow skintone as well.

I am going to try emoi, which is a rich red shade!

Sapphire August 18, 2011 at 9:16 pm

I already have 56 Imaginaire and I love it! So cute and easy-to-wear.. But I think I’ll probably buy 55 Confidence in the future too. :)

Reika August 19, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Good picks! I have a backup of Imaginaire :)

Jade August 19, 2011 at 1:56 am

Imaginaire and Liberte are gorgeous. I would love to add them to my stash, despite not being a gloss person. The broken fanned out image of the wands against the upright black tubes in your first picture is so creative. Love your photography!

Reply

Reika August 19, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Thanks Dovey. Your photography is lovely too!!

Jess August 25, 2011 at 1:05 am

I agree that these lip glosses are among the best! I have two of these too! ;)
The pink color looks amazingly cute on you! <3

Hi Reika,

I really love your make up at the last picture. Which products (foundation, eye make up..) did you use for this look?

Grretings from Germany ;-)

Reika September 19, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Hello Coquette apologies for the late reply, I overlooked your comment as it was on a quite old post!
I had chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation on and the chancel spice eyeshadow quad on my eyes.

Coquette September 19, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Thanks a lot! I will try it ;-)
