Chanel Enjouee Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Enjouee Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is pink-coral with a soft, almost frosted sheen. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is lighter, not as vibrant. Make Up For Ever Folk is softer, sheerer. Guerlani Gracy is darker, deeper. MAC Watch Me Simmer is a bit lighter and brighter. Guerlain Chamade is redder. MAC Ultra Darling is less coral, more subdued. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hot Paris Pink is redder in tone.
I noticed that it looked darker and warmer in the tube, but when applied, it’s more muted (at least, compared to the color of the tube itself!). Enjouee delivered full color coverage, which applied evenly, but I did notice that it had a more noticeable sheen–almost looking a bit frosty. The texture seemed a little drier compared to Coromandel, which was the first shade I tested of the newly reformulated Rouge Allures. I wore this shade for six hours, and my lips felt slightly dehydrated. Not chapped or cracked but the lipstick could have been more hydrating with its longer-lasting formula. So while it hits it out of the park for having rich color payoff and long-wear, as promised, it misses on the hydration.
