Chanel Ambigue (124) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, muted plum with subtly warm-toned, brown undertones. It has a soft, frosted finish that is somewhere between satin and frost. The color coverage was mostly opaque, though the color did not entirely cover my lip freckle. Ambigue lasted well for four hours, and it was neither hydrating nor drying on me (though it should have been hydrating). Urban Decay Strip (P, $22.00) is rosier. Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is pinker. MAC Viva Glam VI (P, $15.00) is similar–more frosted. MAC One of a Kind (LE, $15.00) is similar. Giorgio Armani #526 (P, $32.00) is darker. Benefit I Think I Love You (P, $18.00) is darker and more frosted. See comparison swatches.

Equivoque (126) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with soft, warm undertones and lightly frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage; for a Rouge Allure, it seemed rather under-pigmented. It wore for three hours, and it was a little drying on me. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is pinker. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is also pinker. Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is darker. NARS Tolede (P, $26.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever #4 (P, $19.00) is also warmer, darker. See comparison swatches.

With the newer shades of Rouge Allures, which are designed to have a more luminous (read: frosted) finish, I noticed they do not look as smooth on the lips as other Rouge Allure shades I’ve worn.  I don’t think the thinner consistency of the Rouge Allure formula works as well with the frost finish, because it doesn’t apply as smoothly.
