Chanel Spring 2011: Flamboyante

Chanel Flamboyante (84) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a coral-tinged muted pinky-red with subtle white micro-shimmer and a slightly glossy finish. It’s nearly opaque, and it doesn’t require a lot of layering to achieve rich color.  It is slightly darker and more opaque than MAC Viva Glam Cyndi.  Oddly enough, it swatches and looks more pink-red in the tube, but it seems to pull a touch coral when I wear it.

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.

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

FINAL THOUGHTS: It is a pretty shade of coral-red with a little pinkness to it that will flatter both cool and warmer skin tones, because it doesn’t pull too orange.  With a more hydrating formula, this will also work better on those with drier lips, too.

    This looks great on you! I tried this today and on me, it is super bright. I did like the formula, very hydrating.

    I’m not so crazy about lipstick but Rouge Allure is the only one I will wear. So worth the $30!!! Any ladies that wear lipstick and haven’t tried Rouge Allure definitely need to go for the splurge at least once. They feel great and last a really long time.

    Wow, I just tried this on yesterday and it definitely didn’t pull coral at all on me, just a deep pink. More like the swatch on your hand than on your lips. It always amazes me how the same color looks different on different people. I didn’t buy it… yet. Thanks for reviewing these.

    What a stunning shade Christine! That’s exactly the color I was looking for! It looks quite similar to Guerlain Rouge Sensuel Rouge G Lipstick, doesn’t it? Which one do you recommend?

  11. This colour suits me for usual very well, very tempting! ALLURE are really the best lipsticks around.

  12. Anoon

    I just wanna check with you babes, chanel rouge coco or chanel rouge allure lipsticks r more lasTING & Pigmented?

  13. Jacqueline

    This looks pretty swatched, because it looks cool-toned. But it’s definitely warm on your lips, so I don’t think this is for me. :(
