Chanel Triomphal Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Triomphal Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for oz.) is described as a “shimmering red,” and it’s a new–but limited edition–shade for the holidays. It’s a bright, blue-based pink-tinted red with pink and ruby red sparkly flakes. It applies evenly and yields mostly opaque color–there’s a slight translucency to it. MAC Driven by Love is redder, less pink. MAC Wicked Ways is brighter but closer in color.

The Extrait de Gloss formula is supposed to deliver rich color and intense shine with a gel texture that’s comfortable (and not sticky) and looks “luminous [and] full … for hours.” The English description of the name actually calls it out as a “Long Wear Lip Gloss.” I find the formula isn’t sticky at first, but it develops a slight tackiness over the first half hour that continues for the remainder of the time worn. It’s not overly tacky, just barely so. These wear three to four hours on me, which is about average, but nothing long-wear for me–Chanel’s Glossimers last three to four hours, so I would imagine these would have worn longer than that. Triomphal wore four hours well but looked faded by the fifth hour. The texture is smooth, gel-like, and it is comfortable to wear and not drying over time.

Triomphal

B+
It's a great holiday red with an underlying pink tint that makes it look less like a really bold, in-your-face red. It's also cooler-toned, so it will compliment cooler skin tones; but the pinkness will enable it to work well on warmer skin tones, too.

    Oh, so pretty!!It seems to be those reds that suits everyone, is it Christine? I’m a NC40, think I could pull this off?

  2. rowan

    this is the prettiest lipgloss ever!

    Beautiful. It looks lovely on you especially! I have never seen any brand do a red like Chanel does. Chanel reds are the absolute best red lippies there are—just my opinion.

  4. I plan on getting Driven by Love, so if Triomphal is similar enough I’m not sure I should get it. I’m kind of torn, trying to decide whether they’re different enough to justify getting both. >:

  5. Eli

    A beautiful Christmas shade :)

  6. That looks really pigmented for a lipgloss!

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Marian Marian

    Oh my….that’s gorgeous! I might cave and slip that into my Christmas bag!

  8. kelly

    it makes your teeth so white and your lips fuller.very nice colour.i might try it myself.

    I want to eat this color! It’s beautiful!
    It looks sweet, kind of like a fruit smoothie drink.

  10. Josiane

    Stunning, but I already bought Dragon for the holidays =)

  11. Eva

    This is exactly what I picture when I envision the perfect holiday lip. The sparkle is to die for!

  12. Now I am stuck! I am torn between this, and the holiday edition of Rouge Allure Laque. Prefer colour of this, and wear of the other!! Maybe getting both would be the best choice!!

  13. Kathrina

    It looks great on you, Christine! Could this also pass as a dupe for Cult of Cherry by MAC?

  14. This color is so unbelievably gorgeous.

  15. Yasmin

    What would be a similar version of this in lipstick? I love the color but I’m not much of a lipgloss person.

  16. Ra-jin

    Wow, I really like that color on you! :3 I might have to pick that up. I was also wondering, is it gritty at all?

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cathy Cathy Blanton

    Christine, I LOVE this lipgloss… The color is to die for! I even had to get a backup! You always do such a flawless job of applying lipgloss and lipstick! Thank you for everything you do for this blog! I always read up on what you have to say about Chanel!!! I’m an addict – that is for sure! – Cathy

  18. Triomphal is a great shade. I Shyed away from it for a while but when I tried it on at the counter, I wasn’t gonna leave without it.

  19. Natália

    You are so, so beutuful!!
    I love you!!
    But, Im am a brazilian crossdresser…

    You look gorgeous ,as usual, Christine! SOLD!

  21. Devangi

    What are you wearing on your cheeks? It looks gorgeous :)

  22. Brittany

    Hey everyone!!! I just bought this lip gloss at Macy’s and the saleswoman recommended layering another gloss called “Liaison” over Triumphal for some extra shimmer. AMAZING!!! It looks so beautiful! Liaison only comes in a holiday set now, which includes Liaison, Spark (another gloss which is a berry with golden shimmer, a nude liner, and a makeup bag. My point is, if this set is still available, GET IT! Liaison will look great over any lipstick if you want to add a little shimmer. :)

      Also, I tried Dragon, I’m cool toned and pretty pale so it was a little too “brick red” on me. If you’re like me, try this gloss instead. I love it!

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Veronica Veronica

        I’m cool-toned and pale too, so I found Dragon’s orange tones tended to stick out a bit on me, as well. It wasn’t so excessive to put me off from the product, but I do think it would require a bit more work to play down the warmth. I’m still likely to buy Dragon (I can’t help but love the color despite the issues), but this might be a great alternative if I change my mind.

    • Thank you for sharing your combo, Brittany!

  23. Melanie

    It’s pretty, but my heart is set on getting Chanel Dragon.I wonder which would suit my NC44/45 skin better, this or Chanel Dragon?

  24. Erica

    OMG, so pretty!!!

  25. Zozolina

    Colour is so gorgeous! Is the lipliner necessary?

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Katie Katie

    Hi, Christine! This gloss looks absolutely gorgeous on you. Also, I was wondering, what blush are you wearing in the picture? It looks really nice!

  27. Ashley D.

    I love it, this lip gloss looks perfect on you – almost as if you applied lipstick and then clear gloss over.

    I HAD to buy this as soon as I saw your pics! Phenomenal. Thanks for providing the affiliate link–I feel it’s only right since I would have never discovered this otherwise :D

    Hey Christine,

    you look so pretty! I was wondering what you are wearing on your face. I have already red that you are wearing Chanel Tweed blush in Brun (brun rose?). Would you please tell me what foundation and highlighter you are wearing? Thanks, greets from Germany

  31. Cynthia

    Wow, I really love it but Chanel is a bit too rich for my blood most of the time so I looked into MAC Driven by Love. Excited cause I really loved the color and seemed similar enough that I liked it, but the price comparison is ridiculous! $18.50 for .06 oz versus $32 for .28! Who knew Chanel would come out on top as a better value deal?! LOL

  32. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of celeste Celeste Cirinna

    I just tried on this gloss. I am fair with blue eyes a this color looks great on me. I didn’t buy because I would rather it be in the Rouge Allure Laque line. The SA told me Chanel will slowly phase out the Laques :-(, so I bought another Phoenix.

    Hey Christine,

    you look so pretty! I was wondering what you are wearing on your face. I have already read that you are wearing Chanel Tweed blush in Brun (brun rose?). Would you please tell me what foundation and highlighter you are wearing? Thanks, greets from Germany

    (I post my question the sedond time, because there was the “comment approval text” instead of an answer ;-)

  34. timmi

    this colour is not available in germany, isnt it?

  35. Ellejae

    Did you experience any bleeding from it?
    I purchased it and find it makes me look like I have clown makeup on after a few hours!
