Chanel Pimpante Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Pimpante Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Pimpante Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened tangerine orange. It has a very faint tint of pink along with a golden peach shimmer-sheen. When applied, if you have any natural pink tones in your lips, it tends to look more coral (as it does on me). Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker and less shimmery. MAC Jazzed is lighter, peachier. Chanel Chalys is darker, redder, less shimmery. Chanel Ruban Rose is lighter, more frosted.

It’s mostly opaque, but there’s a bit of sheerness there that allows the natural lip color to come through enough to alter the color (and in my case, add more pink to it).   I can see Pimpante working well on neutral to warmer complexions. It may be a little orange on cooler complexions, but the translucency will tone it down.  It wore for four hours on me, and when I wore it back-to-back, it was slightly drying.  The frosted finish without a creamier formula left my lips looking less-than-stellar.

As a fiend for all things coral, I loved the color, but the formula was less impressive and could use improvement, particularly in regards to hydration.

  1. Great color indeed, but too bad about the formula :-(

  2. Looks great and pretty!!!

  3. Wow, I really do not care for this one at all. I was tempted by this interesting ‘tangerine’ colour, but it looks so mediocre on and the coverage is less than impressive for me. I prefer full coverage.

  4. I guess I am just not a big fan of orange shades of lipstick.

    I was very excited and hopeful concerning the formula after reading your review of Coromandel, but it seems like it’s quite hit or miss. I was hoping Chanel would release an all-round stellar range after all that buzz, but alas, my excitment has decreased a lot. At this price point, what a shame!

    Pretty! I need it!!!

    I do ❤ Chanel lipsticks, this has a gorgeous Nude lip vibe to it. This might be on my Christmas wishlist!! Fab review!!

    Not my color, but it looks great on you! I have yet to find one of these where the color really appeals to me. I suppose that’s good for my wallet, but I’m kind of disappointed.

    SO Pretty! I really like this kind of color! Sad that I am from Brazil… it will be a long time till it sells here, and when it does, will be very expensive… =/

  10. I actually like the opacity but I wish it were a touch less frosted!

  11. freshpinklips

    It looks alot like what MAC cremesheen formula (Shy Girl in particular) does to my lips. I love love love the color though!

    If I´m not mistaken this is one of the lightest colors in the collection I believe. It´s beautiful like everything Chanel but I feel it´s not impressive enough for the price, unless you like nudes (I don´t). However there are other colors that are amazing like Exaltee(the only one I have until now), also la Seduisante(very pretty everyday pink) and Enjouee which I think is the one that is worn in the promotional picture, is it not Christine? The mirror mirror cool one with Inguna Butane? :D

    I like it, on screen it seems very similar to the #76 shade Sari Dore in the Chanel Rouge Coco collections, nice shade for spring (thats when I got it).

  14. Kate A @persistentfantasy

    Is it anything like MAC Cut-a-Caper? I know Jazzed is meant to be quite similar to that as well…

    I LOVE THIS! Not very often would I justify splurging for a Chanel lipstick, but every once in awhile, like now, I neeeeed it. lol Maybe this will be my xmas gift to myself this year.

    Sucks about the lack of hydration, but the color is so adorable!
