Chanel Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose brown.” It’s medium-dark rose with a hint of brown and some mauve, along with multi-colored shimmer–I detected copper, gold, and flecks of teal. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum is pinker, plummier. NARS Oasis is darker, more plum. MAC Spice is like a browner, creamy, opaque variation. MAC Over Indulgence is less pink.

As a new and limited edition shade for fall, it’s a very easy shade to wear. There’s just enough color to change-up your natural lip color (unless you have really pigmented lips, then I think this might lighten a wee bit but will most likely get lost) with noticeable yet not overwhelming shimmer. It’s wearable and everyday in its overall hue. This might translate as boring to some and dupeable to others, but it’s a shade I could see someone using and finishing, especially if they’re looking for work-friendly lip color.

Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss is designed as a non-sticky, long-wearing, comfortable to wear, and shiny formula with “bold color. The gloss has a faint floral scent but no taste, and it come in a black lacquered square-tube with a tapered doe-foot applicator.  It has a gel-like texture that’s neither thin nor thick, which easily slides around the lips but doesn’t bunch up on itself.  Though relatively non-sticky, it gets a little tacky after the first half hour or so (but not enough that I’d describe it as sticky). Troublant manages to wear for four hours, which is about average for me, though certainly short of what I’d describe as long-wearing. The color coverage is only semi-opaque, so it’s not exactly bold color.

I like the formula as it stands, and the only area it needs improvement is wear: it’s just not long-wearing, but it does wear well, evenly, and comes in at four-hour wear, which is more typical of most glosses (that aren’t designated as long-wearing).  If the wear isn’t a deal-breaker, then the texture might sway you.

This is such a pretty makeup look on you, Christine! I love Troublant, it’s just plummy enough for me for fall (I’m bold lip-scared). I also really love the texture of my Extrait de Glosses.

Ooh~! Wasn’t too crazy about it seeing the color on the applicator wand or swatch, but it looks super pretty on you Christine!

Christine, just a little constructive criticism – your new “cutesey” tag lines at the top of every post are distracting!  Part of the reason I’ve liked you better than a lot of other beauty bloggers is your no BS approach – please don’t change that.  These new punny tag lines are cheesy and distracting, please consider toning them down a little.

@Kate Hi Kate,We needed to change the title within the post, because it’s being read as the exact same text about 3 times in a row when you share the post, which has been a drawback for us! I’m sorry you do not like them!

I’m way more illamasqua then Bobbi Brown and even I can appreciate this looks lovely on you. Although they should have saved the name for a real *stinger* of a color! This one should have been Chanson or something soft…I’m very picky about names!

I *love* this gloss. I bought it when I got Rose Initiale and it’s just a lovely soft color for fall. I’m not quite ready to wear it yet but I think it’ll become my every day shade for gloss this fall season. Gloss never lasts on me so I don’t mind the wear time 🙂

Christine, I have to say that I LIKE the puns. My favorite form of “plebeian” humor combines very nicely with the thorough, well written review. ” She is serious, with flashes of silliness!” just like my teaching style. Just a counter point.

18thCenturyFox They’re totally cheesy, but it is the point, haha. I’m certainly guilty of being too serious (and I don’t really take it as an insult – I AM very serious, and I do take writing reviews seriously), so I thought maybe the interior titles (since Shaun told me I need to make them different) would be a short and sweet place to inject a little fun. Even if it is totally cheesy and predictable. :)As always, I will listen and consider all the feedback received before taking drastic action, so thank you for yours! 🙂

Christine (Temptalia) I agree with the fox above – I’m always amused to see what you’ve come up with this time. Yeah, it’s totally cheesy, but it’s fun.

OT:  Very pretty, dainty earrings, Christine!  Topic: I’m not a gloss girl, so perhaps I’m just ignorant, but that looks like a very unusually shaped applicator. So tapered and narrow at the end, no? Are they always like that? (For Chanel, I mean.)

Kafka Nope, not at all.  Chanel’s Glossimers and the Rouge Allure Laques both had different applicators – Glossimers having the more traditional doe-foot, and then Rouge Allure Laques had a take on the doe-foot that was a little more slanted. This applicator is definitely different from the usual doe-foot!Earrings are from: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BellaAnelaJewelry Really liked them because they were beachy and summery but didn’t feel TOO cheesy or over the top.

Christine (Temptalia) So, all you gloss aficionados, do you think this is the sort of applicator that would make it easier or harder to apply lipgloss? I do own a number of lipglosses, though I wear it maybe once every few months at best, and I can’t decide if that applicator would be a bit of a pain or not. You get precision on the edges, yes, but…. I don’t know.Anyway, onto something I really like: that Etsy store has a very cool, funky green pearl, curved, wire ring. Hmm…. And I like a number of the earrings on page 3. You evil temptress, you! 😉

Kafka It’s neutral for me – it neither helps nor hinders. I think if you had thinner lips, it might be slightly annoying, just because it’s a little longer (or appears that way).What I love about her store is FREE SHIPPING (in the U.S.). I hate paying shipping, and not that most Etsy sellers’ shipping rates aren’t reasonable, I just don’t like it. So if I see one pair that I love, I don’t have to wait until I see 2-3 so I can combine/save on shipping.

I thought I was the only “Not really a gloss kinda girl”! Everyone seems so taken, but they look really bad on me! Also I don’t like the feel, shine or generally sheerer color. I just end up looking at my drawer of pretty lipglass and then grab a matte lippie. I’m like a toddler in a tuxedo with gloss- wind me up and watch me squirm!

Although this shade looks really gorgeous on you, I tend to have trouble liking the colors that Chanel makes for lips. It’s like the colors aren’t very flattering to my skintone! I do love Bobbi Brown, YSL, and BECCA lipsticks though…they seem to be the best suited for my beige undertones!
