Chanel Melodieuse (136) Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Melodieuse (136) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Melodieuse (136) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright coral red.” It’s a brightened, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a soft, luminous shine. It had full color coverage applied to lips, and the consistency was lightly creamy so the lipstick glided across lips without pulling or tugging during application. The color distributed evenly and left lips looking smoother. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating during that time. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is lighter. Givenchy Magnolia Organza (301) (P, $36.00) is slightly pinker/darker. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is similar. Maybelline Shocking Coral (P, $7.49) is darker, brighter, redder. MAC Elegant Accent (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $16.00) is a bit lighter, warmer. MAC Heart to Heart (LE, $16.00) is very similar. Guerlain Giulette (P, $49.50) has a faint gold shimmer. Chanel Genial (LE, $34.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

Fougueuse (138) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with very, very subtle cool undertones and a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage–though not quite full coverage–that applied evenly and smoothly across lips without dragging or skipping. The color wore well for four hours, about average, and was lightly hydrating when worn. L’Oreal Pink Flamingo (180) (P, $8.95) is similar. Givenchy Croisiere Fuchsia (309) (LE, $36.00) is darker, purpler. Urban Decay Turn On (P, $22.00) is deeper. Revlon Fuchsia Shock (P, $7.99) is shimmery. NARS Yu (P, $25.00) is brighter, darker, more matte. Milani Hot Pink Rage (P, $5.49) is more matte, brighter. Chanel Insolente (P, $34.00) is less luminous, less blue-based. See comparison swatches.

The Rouge Allure formula is supposed to be long-wearing and hydrating with “intense color with full coverage and a satin finish.” Both shades wore more along the lines of average wear (four hours), so I wouldn’t call them particularly long-wearing. They have mostly opaque to nearly opaque color coverage, though.

  5. Wow, these are great! Melodieuse looks exactly like what I wanted this other lipstick I bought to be (but wasn’t). Very tempted right now (wallet crying in background) :-P

  7. They look great on you Christine! On me though, not so much. The first one is a beautiful coral-y pink. I think I like that one the most!

    I bought Melodieuse but returned it shortly after. Although a pretty color, as the day wore on, it turned into a hideous neon pink stain on my lips. I was hoping it would stay true to color that you see in the tube. *sigh*

    Hi Christine! I quite like the colours; do you think they would show up well on pigmented lips?
    I know that some people find the RAs dry, but you said these are lightly hydrating so is the dryness or patchiness not so much a factor with them?

    • I didn’t find these to be dry, personally! Some of the RAs are neither drying/hydrating on me, and a couple can be a little drying.

      They should show up, but they’re not so opaque that they’ll hide your natural lip color – you might see come through.

  10. Something tells me I will end up getting Melodieuse *my wallet is worried now*
