Chanel Merveille Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss
Chanel Merveille Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Merveille Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “lilac rosewood.” It is a reddened plum with soft pink shimmer. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum is very similar, but it is a sheerer formula, so it looks lighter applied. MAC Lap of Luxury is a touchd arker and has less shimmer.

The Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (whew! that’s a mouthful) is supposed to be a color-rich, non-sticky, and high-shine. Merveille applies easily with opaque color–and lots of shimmer. The size of the shimmer is fine but noticeable, so it reflects and catches the light well, giving lips a very sparkling look.  It’s incredibly comfortable to wear–very hydrating–and lasts for five hours.  The tapered doe-foot applicator tapers on both ends, and it actually fits the natural curve of the lip well for application.  The consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, and it never gets tacky.

    Oh I LOVE the Rouge Allure Extrait de gloss range! And that one looks GREAT.

  2. Sara

    That is such a beautiful shade! It really looks great on you! I’m a big fan of the rosy plum colored glosses, not too crazy of a color but it looks classy and pretty.

  3. Ro

    Hi Christine, how does it compare to Troublant?

  4. Karyn

    YAY ITS NOT LIMITED EDITION! *cheer*

    Christine this whole look is beautiful on you.

    Chanel does these types of shades very very well. Spring 13 is fabulous for makeup this year

    Gorgeous!! I love my Naked Plum but I love this too! I’m suck a sucker for these colors, they are so beautiful.

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cat Cat G

    Also this whole look is radiant! I love all this makeup paired together!

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Laura Laura

    The colour really suits you Christine. Very pretty x

  9. Maddy

    I just bought MAC’s Syrup yesterday and this looks like a glossy match. Christine, would you agree?

  10. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Audrey Audrey

    That mascara really doesn’t look like it’s worth the money. It just seems like your lashes, but blacker. Do you think it’s worth the money?

  11. Looks stunning on you. I like the whole look you have going on there.

  12. It’s a gorgeous gloss on the close-up photo. but this is the first time ever that I don’t like the color on you, Christine. I am very surprised ;)

  13. Beautiful! I’m in love!

  14. helen

    I have to chime in and agree (with many) that wrote that this entire look (including the gloss) is absolutely gorge on you!

  15. Zainab

    The whole look in the last photo looks so warm and wintery, I am definitely looking for this at the duty free.

  16. Oh wow, that really is a pretty color!

  17. Liz

    That’s really pretty on you.

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Connie Connie

    Bought this and the other gloss as well and two of the lipsticks. Cannot wait to open the boxes – they got here today. Also bought one of the eyeliners.

  19. Nicky

    This looks beautiful on you!!

  20. Oh my gosh, that is absolutely gorgeous! Reminds me a bit of the old discontinued Summer Plum!

  21. Oh wow, I love this. It looks like what I wanted Troublant to be – which I like, but was too close to my natural lip color. Maybe I will splurge . . .

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of rebecca blueraccoon

    Oh, this is gorgeous. I think it needs to be mine.

  23. n.

    I have one of these glosses in another color and I love it. This color is beautiful. I must have!

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Barbara Barbara

    Beautiful on you! Lemming!

  25. Jules

    I have never been able to imagine myself spending over $20 for a lip product. This might be the thing that changes my mind…

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

    This is the sort of color I reach for on a daily basis, but because of that reason, I have way too many already,so I’ll pass on this. Besides, I can’t imagine spending $32 on a gloss that’s so dupeable. That said, it is beautiful, and I can see it working well on deeper skintones, as well as fair.

  27. Crystal

    So pretty on you!

  28. Reminds me of Chanel’s discontinued Aqualumiere Ironic Tonic. I loved that gloss. Anybody remember that gloss lovelies? Looks similar right? Ironic Tonic was not so opaque, but the gold flecks and the plummy tone seems to be along the same lines of Merveille.

  29. I LOVE these kinds of colors! This one is gorgeous. Sorta reminds me of Troublant–but darker and less pink. Gorgeous!

  30. I think this will be my first Extrait de Gloss. Looks like a gorgeous everywhere kind of colour. Glad to know it’s joining the permanent collection as well!

  31. how beautifullllllllllllllllll you are looking “C” :D :D so prettyyyyyyy am sure Shaun must have kissed you nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn number of times ?

    to me it looks like glossier version of MAC Sweetie lipstick :D i mean they are in same color family na ?
    and you still love it .. dont you ??
    I cant thank you enough for suggesting me sweetie and nymphette :D :D

    Hello Christine! I love the gloss – it looks great on you! However, there’s something I’d like to ask. I’m always afraid of plum shades making my teeth look yellow. Do you think I’m better off passing this shade? It’s so pretty but I’m worried I wouldn’t be able to wear it…

  33. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Phoebe Phoebe

    5 hours for a gloss? Wow, I’m really impressed!

  34. VickyM

    I have many Chanel lipsticks, but I have never pushed myself to buy the different gloss formulas. Up until now I have only bought one glossimer to layer on top of lipsticks. But this seems to be opaque enough to be worn alone. It is beautiful, and the kind of color I generally prefer using, easy to wear, beautiful color, far from being nude, but it doesn´t scream either. I think it is now on my list of presents for Christmas :D it suits you very well Christine :) .

  35. CiCi Beck

    this is totally random, but I absolutely love your earrings – so cool

  36. This is a pretty color and the formula sounds great, but it also isn’t really an especially unique shade, at least to me. I guess the idea is you’re paying for the formula and staying power though

  37. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cheryl dakotacheryl

    This is a MUST buy for me…thanks so much for the review!!

  38. Nicole

    Please review the raffinement quad! Looks gorgeous on you and I’m lusting after it.

  39. This looks like it may be similar to MAC Viva Glam VI lipglass, which is described as “Warm plum with pearl.” Can anyone weigh in? It’s one of my favourite lipglasses, I’ve used one tube already and am working away at a second tube!

    oooooooo mmmmmmmm gggggggg this is amazing!

  41. This is so expensive in Germany… at least after I bought nearly the complete look ;-) these are just my colours and quite uncommon in my stash right now.
