Chanel Precieuse Rouge Allure from the Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux de Chanel Collection ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review




The second piece I picked up from the Chanel Spring 2013 collection is the Rouge Allure in Precieuse. I had seen swatches of the lipsticks but just kind of carried on and went meh. Leave it to me to actually finally make it to a counter and get sucked in by the SA. OK that’s not fair. She was actually amazing but she swatched it on my hand and I couldn’t help myself. Thank goodness I kept her from swatching anymore of the lipsticks for me! Online (as will happen when you read my review) you miss this subtle pink glow that eminates from this nude peach lipstick. Try as I might I couldn’t get my picks to not look pure peach. Even in the tube the lipstick looks more of a peachy rose nude. Not as golden as it looks here. The very fine shimmer in the lipsticks gives off a pink glow that almost gives this delicate peach shade a soft duochromatic effect.


 Here you can see the gorgeous delicate shimmer.


The true nature of this lipstick is better reflected in these skin and lip swatches.


I purchased the Chanel Precieuse Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34 US/$40 CAD) at Macy’s when I was in Buffalo, NY. It is available at Holt Renfrew and select The Bay in Canada. It is available online at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus in the US.

    This is very pretty and complements your skin tone well. When were you in NY? Was it a pleasure or a work trip?

    Oh, I love this color! It looks perfect on you. I think I may need to add this color to my collection even though I probably have more than 20 in this color family.

      It is super pretty Adriana. There is just something about the subtle nuances in Chanel lipsticks that makes them special.
