Chanel Ultraberry & Ultrarose Rouge Allure Lip Colours

Chanel Ultraberry Rouge Allure Lip Colour
Chanel Ultraberry Rouge Allure Lip Colour

Chanel Ultraberry Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with subtle warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which applied evenly and smoothly, so it appeared almost like a stain as the translucency was even but there. The formula was lightly creamy without being heavy, emollient without sliding around easily. It lasted for five hours on me, left behind a slight stain, and was hydrating over time. MAC Party Line (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). MAC Spice It Up! (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Chanel Rouge Vie (58) (P, $36.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Bruise (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Plum (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Ultrarose Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and like Ultraberry, the translucency it had gave it a stained effect overall. The color was comfortable to wear, and it lasted for just over five hours on me. The formula was lightly hydrating as well. Chanel Rouge Rebelle (172) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Shiseido Liaison (RD306) (P, $28.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Cockney (P, $17.00) is brighter, glossier (95% similar). MAC Brave Red (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Lady Bug (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Red Bowtie (022) (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Guerlain Rouge Sensuel (LE, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Sweet Sakura (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Vivant (144) (P, $37.00) is cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Amant (DC, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). Smashbox LA Sunset (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Poppy Cap (020) (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel La Bouleversante (51) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Jungle Red (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Je t'aime (238) (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Steam Heat (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Siren in Scarlet (P, $7.99) is warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Rouge Troublant, Rouge Rebelle, Rouge Angelique Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colours

Chanel Rouge Troublant Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour
Chanel Rouge Troublant Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour

Chanel Rouge Troublant Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky-coral with warm undertones and a very subtle pearl that gave it more of a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly, but some of the color sat in lip lines and emphasized them. The consistency was thinner and clung more noticeably, so I don’t think it was the most flattering finish overall. This shade lasted for five and a half hours and was lightly drying over time.

Chanel Rouge Rebelle Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. The consistency was thin, lightweight, comfortable to wear, and felt lightly hdyrating. This shade wore for five hours on me and left behind a subtle stain.

Chanel Rouge Angelique Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was nearly opaque in pigmentation, but the consistency was heavier and a touch thicker than most of the Rouge Allure range–you can even see how it had less sheen and luminosity in its finish. There was some color that pulled into lip lines, but the color was close enough to my natural lip color that it wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Chanel Luxuriant & Experimente Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colours

Chanel Luxuriant (150) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour
Chanel Luxuriant (150) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “long-lasting” liquid lipstick that “glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish” and is hydrating. In my experience, they had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, while the wear time was between four and six hours (about the same as similarly hued-lipsticks) but was comfortable to wear and definitely non-drying. What I liked most about the product was actually the applicator, which was very smooth and easy to work with on the lips, as it had enough flex to maneuver naturally across the lips and made it easy to get crisp lines on the edges with it.

These are not for someone who likes a truly matte, flat finish that wears all day long, doesn’t budge or transfer, because these never quite dry down. They take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes to “set” to a velvety finish–a light sheen but not glossy–and aren’t transfer-proof; I get closer to transfer-proof wear after several sips of coffee or blotting it down (which is true with the majority of lip products) but will not make it through a meal fully intact. They do reapply well, and they wear down evenly, so for someone who likes a semi-matte finish, longer wearing lip products, and finds traditional matte, liquid lipstick formulas too drying, these might be worth checking out. They are housed in a frosted glass tube with a glossy black cap and are lightly scented with rose (I’ll say it is subtler than usual for Chanel). All swatches were taken 30 minutes after initial application.

Chanel Luxuriant (150) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, pinky-red with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly. It was one of the better-applying shades I tried. The texture was lightweight, water-like initially but dried down to a comfortable, thin, and smooth consistency that didn’t slide around but didn’t feel tacky or clingy either. The color wore just over six and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Lyin' King (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Psycho (P, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty #012 (LE, $36.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boy Gorgeous (222) (P, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Dazed (LE, $5.00) is more muted (90% similar). Dior Marilyn (LE, $38.00) is brighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Beetroot (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop London Fog (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Claretcast (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Experimente (154) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a dark red with warm, brick undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that spread easily across the lips and covered evenly. The texture felt thin and more water-like initially, but it dried down after thirty minutes to a semi-matte finish that was comfortable to wear. It wore for six hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Avenue (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Viva Glam I (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Red Velvet (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Infatuated Red (LE, $25.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Vivant (144) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium coral-pink with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly, though I had a touch of streaking in some places. The texture felt thin, almost watery initially, but it dried and set to a satin-to-matte finish with faint pearl, which was flattering on the lips. This shade wore for just over five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Kat Von D Bachelorette (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Je t'aime (238) (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Seduisant (146) (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar).

Chanel Seduisant (146) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones, fine pearl, and satin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, though some areas seemed slightly semi-opaque but was hard to tell at a normal viewing distance due to the bright, richer color overall. The texture was smooth, comfortable to wear, and didn’t cling to lips. This shade took almost 45 minutes to really “dry” to its more velvety, semi-matte finish. It wore well for six hours on me and was just a touch hydrating. MAC La Vie En Rouge (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% similar).

Chanel Super Nude (137) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, peachy-coral with warm undertones and very fine gold pearl. It had almost opaque color coverage, which applied smoothly without streaking, but some of the color welled up into my lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The consistency was thin but spreadable, lightweight, and just a touch tacky after a half hour of wear but never heavy or truly sticky. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Divergent Natural Virtue (LE) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Vida Loca (LE, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Chanel Super Coral (157) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a slightly bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It was semi-opaque with even coverage, but the slightly thinner consistency made it less smoothing and plumping on so some of the color emphasized lip lines. The formula was hydrating over the five hours it lasted on my lips. Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Formula Overview

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to have the “colour intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” paired with hydrating, “long-wearing coverage.” It’s a solid gloss formula for someone who likes semi-opaque to opaque coverage and doesn’t mind a bit of tackiness (I find it develops within an hour or so of wear, but it is never heavy or super sticky). I tend to get wear between four and six hours, and the formula is hydrating and comfortable over time.
