Chanel Sensuel (11) Rouge Allure Gloss
Chanel Sensuel (11) Rouge Allure Gloss

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to have the “color intensity of a lipstick with the lacquered shine of a lip gloss” while having a hydrating, long-wearing formula. The color goes on fairly evenly and smoothly, though I get a little settling with these lighter shades, and have semi-opaque to more opaque color coverage. There is a noticeable glossiness that’s more than the shine you might get with a more luminous lipstick. These have a floral scent, though I didn’t notice any taste, and they are lightly tacky. The texture is lightweight without being thick or goopy, so it is comfortable to wear. For me, they’re only slightly hydrating over time with slightly longer-than-average wear (for lighter shades like these).

Chanel Sensuel (11) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a peachy brown with a very fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage and applied evenly overall, but there was slight settling into lip lines. I don’t think it’s noticeable except magnified/up-close. This shade lasted for four hours on me. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is a touch lighter. MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Join the Party (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Ready or Not (P, $19.50) is lighter. MAC Illicit (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC 2N (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery. Burberry Cameo (P, $29.00) is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Exotique (12) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, tangerine orange with faint golden orange micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied to the lips, and there was some light settling into lip lines. This one wore well for four hours on me. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is lighter. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is similar. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is pinker. Maybelline Glistening Amber (055) (P, $8.99) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Sensible (15) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with warm undertones and very faint micro-shimmer. It looks more coral on the applicator than applied, where it seemed to look pinker. This color didn’t apply as evenly as the other two, and it did have very faint settling in places. It had semi-opaque color payoff and lasted for four hours. MAC Artful (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Bijou (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Dior Tiny Pink (269) (P, $35.00) is brighter. NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is lighter. NARS Belize (P, $26.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Nectar (LE, $24.00) is similar. Chanel Pink Pivoine (88) (LE, $27.00) is sheerer. Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is darker. Chanel Murmure (179) (P, $29.50) is similar. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is similar. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is lighter.

Hey Christine, I have three brighter/more intense shades (Affriolant, Seduction, and Supreme), and I think those definitely outperform the lighter shades you reviewed here! Would love to see how the other shades fare on you ๐Ÿ™‚

Props to Chanel for no milky base and lipline settling in these lighter colours! ๐Ÿ˜€ sensible is probably my favourite of this particular selection, although my local Chanel counter sems to have sold out, rather, of all the darker/brighter pinks and reds!

I can’t get over the packaging on these – love it! Probably because I love the packaging on the Rouge Allures so much. Although Sensible performed a little worse than the other two shades, I think it actually looks the most flattering on you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mmmm, not impressed. Not sure how they can have the “color intensity of a lipstick” when these are so sheer and patchy looking. Some of the new Revlon HD Lipglosses look like they have 5x-10x more pigmentation at 1/4 the price. The HE brands are going to have to step up their game in order to justify $ 34 for a lipgloss.

I don’t think they’re sheer, but they aren’t totally opaque for sure! I think it will depend on what someone is looking for in the formula overall ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think they’re that sheer either, you’d be able to see the pigment better with the darker shades. I have a bright pink one and I can wear it as a lipstick with no feathering! Also what’s great about these is the green tea butter. It really nourishes your lips while you wear it, I definitely notice a difference. You’ll find that they’re not as stick as a gloss and they last a long time. Definitely worth the money IMO, and I usually hate wearing lipgloss ๐Ÿ˜›

Here in Europe we don’t seem to have Sensuel (11). Also, these look so glossy and nice. I have Sรฉduction (18) and it definitely looks heavier/gloopier than any of these. I have to check Sensible again. It looked super pale when I swatched it in store.

Thanks for these, as always I was looking forward to your review. ๐Ÿ™‚

I do like Sรฉduction. It’s bolder than I’m used to and, for someone who can’t stand anything on her lips, it feels very comfortable not just at time of applying but throughout the wear. They also made my lips look plumper, I guess you could say.

*Jaw dropped* These look beautiful on you! I’ve no clue how they would do on my pigmented lips but damn, your lips look perfect! Very nice. I like this review! Perhaps I’ll look into this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you! These might not be the best picks (or at the very least, your natural lip color will show through to some degree, affecting the overall color result), but some of the darker/more pigmented ones might work!

Hmmmโ€ฆrather than making me want the Chanel glosses, this is reminding me how much I love my NYX Butter glosses. Cherry Cheesecake here I come.

These shades don’t look like anything special, but I saw the glosses in person and I do agree with Sunny, I think the bolder shades are more interesting!

Maybe it’s because I’m a die-hard red lipstick fanatic, but all these pinky nudes seem, like, insufficiently differentiable to justify making so many of them!

I picked this up last week in the dark plum shade “Distinction”. It’s more vampy than I usually go, but I truly love it. I’ve never, ever spent that much on a lipgloss, but it truly lasted about 4 hours on me, too and left my lips feeling moist.

These look like medium coverage glosses rather lipsticks to me. Not sure they’re really bringing anything new to the makeup table…

I heard they are replacing the Rouge Allure Extrait glosses, and in that case, then it’s just an update/slightly improved formula, I’d say.

How are these compare to Dior Addict Fluid Stick in your opinion Christine?
I love the packaging for these btw โ™ก
Forever a sucker for Chanel’s packaging lol
