Chanel Coquette (85) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Coquette Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Coquette (85) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softened pinky-coral with cool-toned, fuchsia iridescence. It is almost opaque, but a hint of my lip freckle still peeks through, but this is a very creamy, moisturizing shade within the Rouge Allure formula. The color glides on effortlessly and wears for a solid five hours.

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.

The closest dupe I could come up with was Korres #18, which is pinker with gold shimmer. MAC Crosswires is more orange-based and a touch darker. NARS Niagara is closest in the pink color (though a little cooler) but doesn’t have the shimmer.
