Chanel Spring 2011: Coquette

Chanel Coquette (85) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softened pinky-coral with cool-toned, fuchsia iridescence. It is almost opaque, but a hint of my lip freckle still peeks through, but this is a very creamy, moisturizing shade within the Rouge Allure formula. The color glides on effortlessly and wears for a solid five hours.

Rouge Allures have a slight rose scent, but I’ve found that the scent is usually subtle though occasionally a tube will have a more concentrated rose scent. (I’m not personally bothered by the scent, but those with more sensitive noses may want to check it out in person.) I get between four to six hours of wear, as Rouge Allures tend to wear longer than average on me.

The closest dupe I could come up with was Korres #18, which is pinker with gold shimmer. MAC Crosswires is more orange-based and a touch darker. NARS Niagara is closest in the pink color (though a little cooler) but doesn’t have the shimmer.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: It’s yet another shade that will be flattering on a wide range of skin tones, and it is natural enough to be worn often but still has enough color to add brightness to the face.  What makes the shade more unique is the integration of fuchsia shimmer in the color base, as most variations in this color family opt for gold.

  3. Lolo

  4. alisson

  5. Valerie Brower

    Such a pretty color!! I’d wear this everyday since it’s very subtle looking.

  6. Valerie Brower

    At first it kind of reminded me of NARS Manhunt but not on the lips.

  7. Diana

    i love this!!

  8. Jen

    This is such a pretty shade… I haven’t bought any Chanel lipsticks yet but this may be my first… I’m scared of the price though.

  9. Melissa

    Whoa! In the tube and on your hand = not a color for me at all. On your lips it’s gorgeous! Out of my price range, otherwise I’d head to the store to check it out in person. :)

    i have being eyeing NARS Niagara for a long time and this looks fairly close :D

  11. Jasmin

    I’m officially obsessed with Chanel’s new spring lippies!  Do you by any chance
    have Guerlain’s Berry Rouge G Brilliant as a comparison?

    Thanks Christine!!

    Is this the shade Vanessa Paradis wears on the ads? I saw them at almost every us stop in France, and I love the color she was wearing!

  14. Huong

    One word: Gorgeous!

  15. Stef

    I would LOVE to purchase a lipstick for 30 dollars some day :(

    hello, I love your site, I was thinking about getting Coquette, but #18 by Korres is much cheaper so which one do you think I should buy to wear with my espiegle blush and perles shadows??? how do their formulations compare?

  17. Vivian

    hey Cristine,

    I’ve always been intrigued about how different your arm swatch for Coquette was from your own lips and from everyvoby else’s. Today, searching for other Rouge Allure shades on Temptalia, I noticed it is exactly the same picture as the one in Flamboyante — and it makes a lot more sense for that shade.

    Would you mind checking it and maybe re-swatching, if possible?

    Thank you! :)

    • Hi Vivian,

      These are correct. I reviewed both, and I always take pictures of the bottom of the lipstick so I can ensure which photos go with what.

  18. cheryl

    i feel like running out to buy this right now :S too bad it’s currently 2am!

  19. sophi

    Would this go well with NARS Orgasm?
