Rouge Impulsif (247)

Chanel Rouge Impulsif (247) Rouge Allure Velvet ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange-coral with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was lightweight, thinner but not clingy, and more like a velvet-cream hybrid, so it had a bit of slip and creaminess but still felt a touch velvety.

The product applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip texture noticeably, but it wasn’t as flattering as I know this formula has been (which can be more smoothing). It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.12 oz. - $316.67 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.

Rouge Triomphal (257)

Chanel Rouge Triomphal (257) Rouge Allure Velvet ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark red with cooler, bluer undertones and a satin finish. It was just shy of full coverage in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage.

The lipstick applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging, and the product didn’t gather in my lip lines; I felt like my texture and lip lines seemed slightly smoother. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and not too slippery but had enough glide to apply easily. It wore nicely for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt lightly moisturizing.

Both are gorgeous looking shades that I would so wear; because I already do! Thank goodness for the Dupe List saving me money. Otherwise, I might have bought Impulsif without realizing that UD Tilt and CP Cozy are damn close to it.
