The Chanel Rouge Allure range of lip products are known for being intense, bold yet luminous. Thanks to its high concentration of finely ground pigments, the shades are radiant and strong, and can be found in velvet, satiny or pearlescent finishes. We break down how to choose the perfect Rouge Allure product for you, ahead of its Nov 13 launch:
Chic and timeless
Women who love classic lipsticks will adore Chanel’s Rouge Allure ($48 each). Hydrating with a subtle sheen, it leaves your puckers feeling and looking soft, with a satiny wash of colour that’s feminine and sophisticated.
Eblouissante: the dazzling distinction of a red with bluish accents Inspiree: the striking elegance of a brown softened with pink (limited edition) Pensive: a delicate and sophisticated rosy beige
Bold and modern
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet ($48 each) has the perfect mix of luminosity with a matte finish. Its strong colour intensity packs a punch, while its creamy texture leaves lips feeling hydrated and comfortable.
L’Indomptable: the vivacity of an audacious electric pink La Mysterieuse: the subtlety of a rosewood with coppery accents (limited edition) La Fascinante: an intense bluish red
Fun and easy
If you prefer something with no fuss or muss, then a gloss is always a good way to go. The Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($46 each) goes one step further. It combines the easy application and shine of a gloss with the colour intensity of a lipstick.
Expressive: the precision of an intense pink warmed with bronze (limited edition) Ideale: the poetry of a graceful pink with golden and silver shimmers (limited edition) Supreme: a vibrant bluish pink
For the pros
Every lipstick junkie knows a lip pencil is a must-have in her beauty arsenal. It not only adds definition and shape to your puckers, but also prevents colour from bleeding and prolongs wear. The soft, supple glide-on tip of Chanel’s Le Crayon Levres ($32) traces the contours of your lips with a clean, satiny matte line to match with the lipsticks and glosses of the collection.
