Chanel Confidentielle Rouge Allure 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.

The Summer Season: Chanel Libertine Lipstick

Chanel Libertine Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softened shade of coral-pink with a white shimmer and subtle sheen. This is a very wearable shade of coral, because it gives semi-opaque color coverage, so it’s never overwhelming, bright, or bold. It’s soft and pretty and doesn’t lean too orange, so it’s one of the better shades for those with stronger cool undertones.

The Summer Season: Chanel Exotic Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Exotic Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant shade of orange with only the slightest hint of coral tones.  It’s mostly orange, but you can tell it’s not your typical true orange, too.   It has a fine dusting of gold shimmer that’s hardly noticeable when worn, but it helps give lips that glossy, full look.  The pigmentation is excellent and the color gives me full coverage.

Chanel Darling Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Darling (#30) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, squishy, kind-of-jelly-ish pink.  It adds some color, but it’s still on the sheerer side (particularly for a Rouge Allure).  It has a very glossy finish and feel–almost like a Hydrabase lipstick, actually–so it feels moisturizing and has more of a lip balm feel, though it does give my lips noticeable pinkness.  It’s a very muted, toned down pink that’s easily wearable by both cool and warmer skin tones, because it will take on many of the characteristics of your natural lip color.  When my Chanel artist showed me the sheet of products for Summer, I saw Darling on the list so I asked her to set it aside (along with Genial) for me, but it just doesn’t seem to fit with the launch.  It fits even less so when set against the brightness and vibrancy of Genial and Super.

Chanel Genial Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Genial Rouge Allure Lipstick ($29.00) is a brightened pinky-coral with a slightly glossy sheen. It’s a creamy, nearly opaque lipstick that offers lips in full-color coverage without a hint of shimmer. It’s creamy without being slippery and despite the bold color, lip lines aren’t emphasized. It’s a fun pop of color with the lovely texture of a Rouge Allure lipstick. It’s new and limited edition as part of Chanel’s summer collection, which debuted online this week.
