Chanel Ming Rouge Allure Laque

Chanel Ming Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00) is the fourth to drool over in our seven days of Chanel Rouge Allure Laque feature.

Ming is a soft, medium pink that runs just a little warm, but overall, I’d consider neutral. It’s just this perfect girly pink that’s feminine, soft, and very, very wearable. This is a shade you could wear anywhere, anytime, and for any occasion. I could easily see this being a go-to for a quick slip of everyday color that looks gorgeous and lasts for hours. I found Ming has the least staying power, but I still was able to get through a light meal with minimal fading (mostly just the glossiness fades). It’s not as opaque as deeper shades like Coromandel and Dragon, but it’s still quite pigmented on my lips and covers up most of my natural lip color. What I like is that even though it’s very light, my natural lip color doesn’t seem to drag the color down at all–it looks very much as it does in the tube as it does on my lips.

Since I don’t want to just re-write what I say about the formula (since it is the same–if there are any variations, you can be sure I’ll call them out), here’s a quick bullet-point summary.


  • Satiny, creamy lip color that hydrates
  • Opaque color in one layer–very pigmented
  • Lasts for hours and even through eating/drinking
  • Glossy sheen
  • Looks like a lipstick AND a gloss
  • Easy to travel with
  • Sleek packaging


  • Pricey at $32 each

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 5/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

Recommendation: If you’re all about the pink lip, check this one out!

Yes, it’s definitely pricey. I tell myself it’s a lipstick + gloss combo, so it’s not THAT insane. Plus, it’s Chanel, and a glossimer is what, $27? SO it’s not that outlandish (as far as Chanel goes!).

i’d like to try it but right now i am not in the market. i have way too much stuff to use before i buy again. maybe i should go on a 100 pan.

That’s such a beautiful colour.. But is it just me, or did it settle into the lips in a strange way? It doesn’t look as clean or smooth as the others you’ve swatched.

Oh well, maybe it’s just me.

Btw, do you think that many of these colours will work for most skin tones? I sometimes have a problem finding bright colours that don’t look clownish on my light, yellow/olive/neutral skin tone that is prone to facial redness from getting flushed all the time.

Hey Ashley,

I think this is the lightest shade, so since my natural lip color shows through a bit more, I wonder if that’s why it looks like it’s settled into lines more!

I do think that these colors are, overall, universal. Chanel did a good job making shades that aren’t strictly for warm/cool tones!

This is my favorite pink/nude lip item! And I just lost it! I have no idea where it went and I used it like half hour ago…this is driving me crazy…you know the feeling of losing your favorite lipstick! Sorry for being a crying baby over a lipstick, but this one is my #1 at the moment. I need to buy a replacement ASAP. 🙂

i just bought #76 ming today! it’s amazing! completely worth the $32 pricer tag!
it covers super pigmented lips VERY well! 🙂
i’m going to pick up phoenix tomorrow!


Just wanted everyone to know that I found these on Ebay for $19.99 plus $2.50 shipping…the seller is ach12. This person is right in NYC so I got mine in one day! Saved $14 since Chanel charges $32 plus tax…I bought Santal, Dynastie and probably going to get the rest for this price…
