No. 01

Chanel No. 01 Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink-red with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though you can see my lip freckle peeking through indicating it was not full coverage (as described). The texture was smooth with slight slip but not enough to feel slippery or enable the color to move around on the lips. It wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

No. 02

Chanel No. 02 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium red with neutral undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips, but it did require a second layer for full coverage. The lipstick was lightly creamy without being thick or overly emollient, so it applied without tugging but sat nicely on the lips and didn’t feather over time. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Allure Velvet formula is supposed to be a "non-drying matte lipstick" with "intensely rich, long-wearing colour" and has a "velvet matte finish." Over time, I felt like the formula has improved and is actually non-drying (the original launch did not wear well on me) to lightly drying (seen more in shades that have lasted six to eight hours). The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but is usually semi-opaque to opaque with a semi-matte to satin finish. The texture had a velvety, glide-on feel that doesn't feel particularly creamy or wet, yet the lipstick is comfortable to wear over the four to six hours it typically lasts for. Like most Chanel lip products, they have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

No. 03

Chanel No. 03 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted red with cool, pink undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage–plenty of pigmentation that it covered the lips with even coverage but my lip freckle was still visible. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and comfortable to apply and to wear as the lipstick glided on but didn’t move around over time. The lipstick wore well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Off topic: OFRA has increased prices on their site. LL was $17, now $20. The three tube sets increased from 35 to 50. ULTA had not increased the Ofra prices as of Wed night. So….if you still have the Ulta 20%, and any Ofra WL, now is the time. Assume Ulta will have to raise prices as well. Idk if all products rare increased: was only looking at LL.

Really appreciate your review, Christine, particularly the descriptions as it is hard to discern the shade and undertone differences just by looking at swatches. There is a fourth lipstick in the collection, which I’ll see at a counter. I can’t wait to get my hands on these festive red bullets. Chanel is among my HG for lipsticks.

Thanks so much for the swatch and brief description. No 4 will suit me perfectly; it’s the type of shade that most counters reach for when first recommending a shade. It looks wonderful on you, Christine. It’s beautifully brightening. Of the early swatches I saw, they we’re nearly all No 1 – 3. Above and beyond, and so very much appreciated.

None of these colors are really calling to me but phew, gotta love that packaging. If I go to the departments stores Christmas shopping, I can see grabbing one of these for the heck of it if they’re on display. I like the Allure formula.

These are GORGEOUS! And they look amazing on you, Christine.

I love the Rouge Allure Velvet formula and would love to have a Chanel red in my collection. This is soooooo enticing! How can I possibly stick to my “no-buy” plan with shades like these coming out? More important, how do I decide between 02 and 03?

What a perfect follow up to the “Temptalia Asks” question of the day! If I had to start over, I might just have to grab up #02. It has a nice balance between warm and cool tones, very smooth looking and just right pigmentation.

But , since I’m not starting over, I will be satisfied with the reds I already own!

I wonder whether there’s a mistake on Chanel website in respect of descriptions of these lipstick shades? I am not questioning 01 red red and 04 orange red. But 02 pink red and 03 warm red are transposed compared to the swatches we see here – the exact opposites. To me all four shades are gorgeous anyway.

These are beautiful reds. I see a (1) pink-red, (2) true red, (3) berry-red and (4) orange-red. That’s a great shade range for the holidays. I’m looking at (1) and that beautiful red and gold packaging. These will probably all sell out very fast.

Oh I want them all, these are so gorgeous. I love Chanel lip products. I know I have dupes upon dupes for red lipstick but I still want them all, lol. I really don’t need another red lipstick but boy oh boy do I want them all!!
