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.

Wow, I really do not care for this one at all. I was tempted by this interesting ‘tangerine’ colour, but it looks so mediocre on and the coverage is less than impressive for me. I prefer full coverage.

I was very excited and hopeful concerning the formula after reading your review of Coromandel, but it seems like it’s quite hit or miss. I was hoping Chanel would release an all-round stellar range after all that buzz, but alas, my excitment has decreased a lot. At this price point, what a shame!

Not my color, but it looks great on you! I have yet to find one of these where the color really appeals to me. I suppose that’s good for my wallet, but I’m kind of disappointed.

SO Pretty! I really like this kind of color! Sad that I am from Brazil… it will be a long time till it sells here, and when it does, will be very expensive… =/

If I´m not mistaken this is one of the lightest colors in the collection I believe. It´s beautiful like everything Chanel but I feel it´s not impressive enough for the price, unless you like nudes (I don´t). However there are other colors that are amazing like Exaltee(the only one I have until now), also la Seduisante(very pretty everyday pink) and Enjouee which I think is the one that is worn in the promotional picture, is it not Christine? The mirror mirror cool one with Inguna Butane? 😀

I LOVE THIS! Not very often would I justify splurging for a Chanel lipstick, but every once in awhile, like now, I neeeeed it. lol Maybe this will be my xmas gift to myself this year.
