Chanel Surprenante (129) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, peony pink with soft, warm yellow undertones and a slightly frosted finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and though the lipstick glided on without tugging on the lips, that light frost finish wasn’t as flattering on lips as the regular Rouge Allures are–it just made lips seem a little dry. This shade lasted four and a half hours on me, and it was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is less frosted. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is less frosted. MAC Grande Dame (P, $22.00) is warmer. Burberry Rose Pink (307) (P, $30.00) is darker, bolder. See comparison swatches.

Etonnante (131) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-orange with a frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage, but the frost finish made lips look a little dry–almost like it exaggerated the natural texture of the lips. Normally, Rouge Allures leave lips looking smoother and healthier, but that was definitely not the case with this newer finish for me. This shade wore well for four and a half hours, and it was a smidgen on the drying side for me. Guerlain Pamplelune (P, $35.00) is less frosted. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete (P, $35.00) is similar. Chanel Teheran (P, $34.00) is a touch brighter. See comparison swatches.

The second color makes your skin looks much warmer! I still haven’t figure out colors on myself. These are great colors, but there have been more flattering textures for your lips.

I agree – I just go, “Why do my lips look so… dry?” It’s not like these are super matte or the 20th lipstick I wore of the day!

The base color of Etonnante is one I’m fond of, but I don’t like how it even looks dry!

Christine, today I was in Sephora and the women there told me there would be a VIB sale this year and she seemed sure it likely be the same day as last year -November 7th. But I see it’s not being confirmed anywhere so I wonder if she was just speculating?

Hey Cat,

Sephora usually won’t confirm (not even on the DL) until it’s really about to happen – as soon as I have official info, I will post, but I won’t even post about rumors or possibilities as not everyone reads the “unofficial” or “rumor” portion and it just spreads like fact, lol!

Yeah, that makes sense. That’s why I was so surprised she even gave me an answer! I mean, I always give it a go and ask, but usually I just get the reply everyone gets -that they can’t speak of upcoming promotions 🙂 I’ll definitely be tuned in for when the official info is posted though! I am hoping for November 7th since I have the day off and can head over to my store right away haha!
