Rouge Excessif (868)

Chanel Rouge Excessif (868) Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lip Colour ($55.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep red-copper with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had a slightly denser, less emollient consistency compared to most shades in the range, though it had enough slip to glide comfortably across my lips and deposited full coverage in one stroke. The formula was smoothing and easy to wear. It wore well for six hours and felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.07 oz. - $785.71 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "satin" finish with eight-hour wear (and 12 hours of hydration) and an "ultra-high concentration of pigments" and a "deeply moisturizing complex." The range was quite pigmented with most shades delivering fully opaque coverage in a single layer, though there were a few exceptions.

The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lightly emollient without too much slip, so it stayed in place without feathering on me, but it was a "thicker" and denser formula compared to most Chanel lip color formulas I have tried; this wasn't a good or bad thing, but it was a departure worth noting for those familiar with prior lipstick releases from the brand. I felt this thicker formula did help to soften my lip lines and yield a very flattering look on my lips, though.

Most shades lasted at least four hours with some shades lasting closer to six hours but eight hours of decent wear would have been a stretch. Eight hours with some remnants of color? Possibly with some of the bolder hues (e.g. a red). The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear, and I definitely felt no need to hasten to get lip balm after one wore off.

The lipstick had a subtle, floral scent (I didn't notice it after I applied it, mostly in the tube) but no discernible taste.

Note: this is a refillable lipstick, so the price reflects the cost of the case and the lipstick shade (cases are not currently available on their own). Refills are $40 each at the time of publishing.

Rouge Ascendant (872)

Chanel Rouge Ascendant (872) Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lip Colour ($55.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deeper, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a moderately emollient texture that had more slip than most shades in the range, which resulted in product not wanting to adhere as well to the center of my lips. It lasted well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.

OMG – I just love both of these lipstick shades. Probably Rouge Excessif a tad more. Sad to say that Chanel’s lipsticks often retail here around the $90 mark (ouch!), so looking at the wonderful dupe list I am going to see if Shiseido’s Sleeping Dragon will surfice.

Too really pretty shades and shades that I gravitate to but for that reason, I am duped heavily so an easy pass for me. I had planned on placing another Chanel order to get the new foundation but decided to wait until I go to Seattle so that I can hopefully get a tester and color match. There are only 20 shades so I doubt I will be lucky enough to get both a light enough one with the right undertones. Anyway, maybe I will check out the lipsticks while I am there.
