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.
