Chanel Caprice Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicate pink.” It’s a warm, yellow-toned light-medium peach-tinted pink with soft pink and gold micro-shimmer–surprisingly warm, actually. Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet is pinker, darker. Chanel Confidence is much pinker and cooler-toned.

It’s new for fall but limited edition. It comes in a black lacquered square tube that has heft and feels luxurious when held. The applicator is a flocked sponge with an indentation on both sides. Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss is supposed to be non-sticky, shiny, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear with “bold color.” The gloss has a faint floral scent but no detectable taste.  The texture is gel-like, so it’s not thin but it’s not thick or goopy; it slides and moves around easily but doesn’t bleed or feather (though the majority of the shades are fairly light!).

Caprice has full color coverage–entirely hiding my lip freckle–and despite its lightness in color, it doesn’t really settle noticeably into lip lines and applies evenly. The texture is more non-sticky than not, but there is just a hint of tackiness that develops over time. While it no doubt wears well and wears away evenly, it only lasts four and a half hours on me–above average but not by much (average for gloss is three to four hours).  The biggest area this product lost points on was its wear; it’s just not a long-wearing gloss. Good wear and incredibly comfortable on with opaque color, and it even has a little more gloss than a lot of glosses on the market–worth a look-see as long as the wear isn’t a deal-breaker for you.

God, I love this color. I was JUST about to get this, but decided that I was going to start stepping out of my comfort zone and play with color more–so I got Troublant instead. I LOVED it–so much so, that I’m considering getting Caprice as well 😛

Your entire look is really lovely and fresh, but your skin in particular is absolutely amazing – what skincare/primer, foundation, setting powder and/or highlighter are you using here?!

I bet when you were younger, you never thought, “someday my lip freckle will be PERFECT for determining the opacity of lip products!”  Very convenient ; )

This sounds lovely, Christine! Exactly what I’d expect (or, perhaps just hope) to see from a high-end gloss — coverage without streaking or migration. 
 
I’ve yet to make a foray into the world of Chanel, but the Extrait de Gloss formula sounds like it would make a good starting point 😉 

Just coincidentally bought this. It’s beautiful as are all their glosses, but yes, not long wearing. Just discovered this site and really liking it!
