I usually get disappointed by Chanel lip formulations although I still get sucked into buying them because of the beautiful packagings and the colors. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I even like this lip gloss formula. This is a big yay for me since I cannot force myself to wear lippies with unsatisfying formulas any more. (Maybe I will suffer the formula for a shade like MAC Ruby Woo, but that's about it.)
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss
I love the packaging designs of Chanel Rouge Allure line.
The slick black tube with golden top is simply gorgeous.
The tube is made of weighty ceramic, which feels even more luxurious.
Émoi is a berry red with fine gold shimmer.
The applicator feels flexible enough and suits the lip gloss formula very well.
Both sides of the tip are flat, which helps the color to adhere better on the lips.
Émoi is another complex red that has multi-undertones.
It is blue-based but still manages to look warm and blushed thanks to the micro shimmer that only adds dimension and warmth.
This lip swatch is made with a few swipes.
For a lip gloss, it is quite pigmented and the color goes on evenly.
The formula comes with a slightly tacky feel. If you cannot stand any sticky lip gloss, you probably won't like it. However, the tackiness is just about right maybe due to its gel-like consistency, if that makes any sense.
It stays on me for about 3 hours and fades evenly down to a light stain. It does not peel my lips nor form those icky white lines, so reapplication is a breeze.
There is the faint smell same as the Rouge Allure Lipsticks. I do not particularly care for it but I'm not bothered by it, either.
An overall look with Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss Émoi
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss gets a solid A from me. And the color Émoi has totally won my heart. It is such a lady-like red that still looks youthful.
You can still find Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss but it will be replaced by the new Rouge Allure Gloss. It seems soon I will be forking over a few more dollars for the new click-y tube.
