Chanel Super Nude & Super Coral Rouge Allure Glosses

Chanel Super Nude (137) Rouge Allure Gloss
Chanel Super Nude (137) Rouge Allure Gloss

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. Charlotte Tilbury Sweet Stiletto (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Vida Loca (LE, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar). Divergent Natural Virtue (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pure Delight (LE, $20.00) is cooler (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). Anastasia Maui (-, $16.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Peach Tease (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% 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.

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage” with a “silky texture” that adds “radiance to the cheeks.” The texture was silky and finely-milled, but it was also a little dusty and prone to sheering out. The pigmentation started off semi-sheer and was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, so it is buildable, but if you want really dramatic coverage, you might find it lacking. When I applied it to bare cheeks, I found the formula fairly blendable, but it did require some extra maneuvering and blending to really even out the coverage. The color wore well for eight hours before fading.

Chanel Evening Beige (340) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a dusting of gold shimmer.

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage” with a “silky texture” that adds “radiance to the cheeks.” It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, which was opaque in two to three layers (depends on your pressure and application method). The texture was smooth, silky, thin and a smidgen dusty, but it was blendable on the skin and sat well without emphasizing the natural texture of my skin. There was noticeable shimmer, but it is fine and only sprinkled throughout, so the resulting finish was lightly luminous but not metallic or shimmery. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
