Chanel Confidentielle Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Confidentielle Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Confidentielle Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a petal pink with a frost finish.  It has very subtle micro-shimmer of gold and pink with a frost-gloss sheen.  It’s nearly opaque, and it wears well, being part of the Rouge Allure family.  It’s a new shade introduced alongside the new Extrait de Gloss line-up.  It has a nice yellow undertone, making it a warmer pink, and more suitable for warmer complexions.  It doesn’t lean too yellow, though, and will help brighten cooler complexions as well.

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 wore this shade alone for five hours and a coffee, so it holds up with the rest of the Rouge Allure family in respect to wear.

I really thought I was going to find a plethora of dupes for this one, but warmer pinks are certainly a shade range that could use more options.  I figured to find at least a few in the Spring Season, but nothing matched quite right to me.  Between the medium-pink color and the yellow undertone, it was difficult to dupe.
