Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous finish with a very fine pearl sheen. It had good color coverage, though the natural lip color will still peek through (so it’s not the full coverage promised). The color went on evenly but had a tendency to pull into some of my lip lines over time. The texture was thin, creamy, and comfortable to wear over a three hour period. Hourglass Believer (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alistair (LE, $36.00) is less shimmery, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Cle de Peau Silk Scroll (P, $65.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $18.50) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Café (DC, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alexander (2016) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Highlights (P, $18.50) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $18.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pure Pout (P, $25.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Katherine (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty London Suede (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Sazan Nude (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $18.50) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Nothing to Wear (LE, $18.50) is brighter, cooler (80% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). Guerlain #02 (P, $33.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar).

Chanel Rouge Tentation (169) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen from fine pearl. It was just shy of having opaque color payoff, which distributed smoothly and evenly. The lipstick felt lightly creamy going on, but it wasn’t heavy or too thin, which made my lips appear smoother, and it was comfortable to wear. I liked that it adhered well so that I didn’t have any issues with the color migrating outside my lips. On me, the color was still going strong after six hours of wear and was nicely hydrating while worn. Shiseido Ruby Copper (RD501) (DC, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). Guerlain #26 (P, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Runaway Red (LE, $18.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Dior Ultra Shock (851) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Dominic (P, $36.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Splendor (950) (LE, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Miami Vice (P, $21.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). NARS Rouge Improbable (LE, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC MAC Red (P, $18.50) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Perfect Score (LE, $18.50) is cooler (95% similar). Smashbox Unzipped (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Virgo (LE, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Nyma Tang (LE, $18.50) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Samsara (DC, $37.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Mind Control (LE, $18.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Boldface (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). NARS Delphine (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Gwen (DC, $58.00) is lighter (90% similar). Pat McGrath Sedition (P, $38.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

Well, Chanel’s known for red lipsticks, and they didn’t disappoint! This Fall collection is gorgeous -I like how the red theme runs thru the shadows, blushes, and lipsticks. Wow, UD wasn’t kidding when they said that All Night Foundation was full coverage! It does look like it could last all night and maybe into the next day !

These are from the Le Rouge No. 1 collection, right? As much as I want Ingenue I may have to skip it. I have at least seven colors almost identical. That eyeshadow quad they released, however, is calling my name. I’ve yet to try one of their quads and this new one is everything I want in a quad.

Noooooooooooooooo! I had Rouge Tentation in my Saks bag this morning with a 20% off code and changed my mind. I used the code for another item and now I can’t use it again! Welp, I guess I’ll hope it stays in stock and I get another good code. Looks amazing on you!

That red is perfection. It’s absolutely so. I’ve had UD Vice lipstick in Gash way at the top of my wishlist, but this Rouge Tentation is that, and so much more. I cannot quite put my finger on *what* it is that makes this one have such a KAPOW factor and make me feel that I need it?!?

The Rouge formula is thinner than UD’s, but not in a bad way. It has more of a sheeny, balmy look, instead of a full-on cream lipstick.

Love the red lipstick! The wear time is really decent for a none matte formula. It seems to smooth the lips a beautiful way. If I have the opportunity I will go to a Chanel counter to try how it looks on me!

I have a Chanel Rouge that I bought six or seven years ago, it was my first luxury lipstick. It was called Lover 09, I loved it. And of course they discontinued it! Tentation looks exactly like it.

I love ingenue. It reads more neutral on you.. looks warmer on the bullet. Your smoky eyeshadow look paired with this lipstick totally kicks a$$.

I really like the Rouge Ingenue lipstick. It’s one of the few nudes that has appealed to me. It looks great on you Christine!
Also, I love your eye look here and can’t wait to read your review!

Very pretty eye look, Christine! It’s a great example of a classy way to wear red & burgundy shadows this fall. ? I was torn between ordering Rouge Vie & Tentation. Ended up ordering Rouge Vie because it seemed to be a bit more unique. Sure hope I’m not sorry.

I didn’t think I would want another red lipstick but now I do !
LOVE the makeup you did with the collection, Christine.

I’ve always really liked the Rouge Allure formula and Rouge Tentation looks gorgeous! I’m still trying to find a good dupe for the Rouge Allure in Darling. Rouge Ingenue looks too warm I think. I keep forgetting to check the dupes section so I’m going to do that now before I forget!
