Chanel Affriolant (13) Rouge Allure Gloss
Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new formula that’s supposed to be pigmented like a lipstick with the glossiness you’d expect from gloss, while hydrating lips. I reviewed three shades yesterday, and I definitely think these shades performed better. They were more pigmented, applied more smoothly, and lasted a little longer. The formula is semi-opaque to mostly opaque, wears four to six hours, is lightly hydrating, and slightly tacky. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste to me.
Chanel Affriolant (13) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, pink-coral with warm undertones and very fine, cooler-toned pink shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage and applied evenly with very slight settling, which wasn’t noticeable except very close-up and magnified. This shade wore well for five hours on me. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is warmer. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is brighter, pinker. NARS Stella (P, $26.00) is more muted. YSL Grenade Pepite (No. 15) (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Fever Isle (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Chanel Extase (16) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and very subtle micro-shimmer (it’s quite sparse). It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on somewhat evenly, but the sheerer nature of this made it look less perfect applied compared to Affriolant. It wore well for four and a half hours on me. Illamasqua Follow (DC, $22.00) is darker, brighter. Paul and Joe Beaute Carnaval (06) (P, $29.00) is lighter. Maybelline Captivating Carnation (080) (P, $8.99) is cooler-toned.

Chanel Supreme (17) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and very fine white micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on fairly smoothly. This shade wore for almost six hours, which made it one of the longer-wearing shades that I have from the range. MAC Hopelessly Devoted (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Burberry Pink Sweet Pea (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery.
