Chanel Ultraberry Rouge Allure Lip Colour
Chanel Ultraberry Rouge Allure Lip Colour

Chanel Ultraberry Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with subtle warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which applied evenly and smoothly, so it appeared almost like a stain as the translucency was even but there. The formula was lightly creamy without being heavy, emollient without sliding around easily. It lasted for five hours on me, left behind a slight stain, and was hydrating over time. MAC Party Line (P, $19.50) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty #084 (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NARS Dressed to Kill (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Hourglass I Can't Live Without (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Chanel Ultrarose Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and like Ultraberry, the translucency it had gave it a stained effect overall. The color was comfortable to wear, and it lasted for just over five hours on me. The formula was lightly hydrating as well. Shiseido Liaison (RD306) (DC, $28.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Guerlain Red Bowtie (022) (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Smashbox LA Sunset (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Poppy Cap (020) (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Moot Point (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Rouge Sensuel (DC, $58.00) is warmer (90% similar). Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Amant (DC, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel La Bouleversante (51) (P, $37.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Vivant (144) (P, $37.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Rouge Rebelle (172) (P, $38.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Jungle Red (DC, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

I really like both of them, but I’ve achieved the same effect Ultraberry gives by just dabbing a dark red on my lips. Ultrarose though, don’t have anything like it in my collection, but MAC Ladybug is already on my list to try. So, I’ll try out the cheaper dupe first.

Ultrarose is gorgeous. I think these softer, sheerer reds are lovely and perfect for a less gussied up, more casual way to wear red. That said, I will *likely* go for a $17-28 dupe, instead.

Generally I stay away from sheer lipsticks, but Ultraberry is gorgeous.
I think I’ll have to Get over to a Chanel counter to see it in real life. I just hope they have it.
Ultrarose is also very pretty.

Christine, I’m curious as to what is your favorite color of lipstick and how many red lippies you have. These colors are both beautiful.

Hi Tosin,

This blog is for reviews on the product’s quality and is not focused on whether a shade looks good (or not) in terms of color. Ultimately, many choices about what colors look “good” are in the eye of the beholder. I have seen darker skin tones wear both of these types of colors, so I don’t see why either would not work on a darker skin tone.
