Chanel Extatique Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Extatique Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Extatique Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is bright fuchsia pink with iridescent fuchsia-pink shimmer. It’s almost as bright applied to lips as it appears in the tube. The finish is fairly frosty. Le Metier de Beaute Paris is darker, more magenta. MAC Pink Pigeon is much cooler-toned and doesn’t have shimmer. NYX Pink Lyric is similar but doesn’t have shimmer. MAC Show Orchid is more intense, slightly darker. Illamasqua Welt is pinker.

Of the new Rouge Allures that I’ve reviewed so far, I liked Extatique the least, as far as the formula went. There’s something about this shade that yielded a drier consistency, and with the frosted finish, I felt it looked dry on my lips, too. It wasn’t hydrating when I wore it, though it lasted six hours, and I wouldn’t say it dried my lips out.  The texture could be creamier, and for a formula described as hydrating, this falls short.  It did deliver mostly opaque color payoff (and it seemed sheer when swatched, so I was happy to see it was as pigmented as Chanel describes).

Extatique

B+
The color is fun and bright, but it lacks hydration, and the consistency of the formula could be creamier, which would give it a better appearance when applied.

    I’m sorry to say but it looks cheap. Not impressed

    Hahah what a coincidence! I swatched this on my hand just briefly at the Chanel counter just today, it looks far better on a pair of lips! It’s a very pretty pink, not too red either, it’s quite a blue pink huh? Which I like, I’m kind of sick of red-pinks. Thank you Christine for changing my mind about it! It’s another Chanel on the list… =D

  3. The color at least seems to tone down the frostiness a bit, but still–eeps! I don’t do frosted lips so this one is a no-go for me :/ I do really want to try this formula though so I’ll be checking out a few of the other colors

  4. Aw, man! This is the only Rouge Allure I bought! Should I go back for another shade to get the true Rouge Allure experience?

  5. I picked up MAC show orchid off eBay after reading it on a number of MAC top ten lists. I think it is actually far prettier than this one.

  6. Great color, too bad about the texture :-(

    I think but am not entirely certain this is similar to Dior Addict Extreme in #476, Plaza. Anyone else have a thought on that?

    I´m really impatient for the new rouge allure to arrive in my area. I was deciding between Exaltee which I have planed on purchasing for some time now and this other lipstick Extatique. But now I honestly think I´m just going to buy Exaltee, this one is a bit to blue based for my taste, but it still looks lovely in you Christine :D it suits you.

  9. Hey Christine, I was wondering if you have tried to the Chanel Rouge Allure in Rouge Noir #109 and how it compares to Chanel L’Impatiente Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick from the winter collection.

    Thanks!

  10. Nice color, too bad about the texture and dryness. i wouldn’t normally go to Chanel for a pink though

    Oh, I just swatched this yesterday, and I loved it! It’s a shame about the formula being drying. Oh well, I guess that’s money saved in my pocket book. :P

    I swatched this at the Chanel counter and I LOVE it! It is a dupe for one of my favorite discontinued Chanel lipsticks, Coco Pink.

    It doesn’t look all that great in the tube, but it looks beautiful on you!
