The Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss formula is my favourite, non-staining, lip gloss formula followed closely by their Glossimers. When I saw there were two new shades being released as part of the Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux de Chanel Makeup Collection I knew I needed both. I adore how densely pigmented these glosses are. Attirance is a little more sheer than most of the glosses in the line but no less beautiful.
Attirance is accurately described by Chanel as a coppery beige. It has a bit more transparency than most Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss glosses but it is still packed with enough pigment to be worn solo. There is no grittiness and the gloss is ultra smooth and comfortable. It last several hours and leaves only a hint of of the ultra fine shimmer behind when it wears off. I love that this is warm copper as opposed to the peaches we usually see for spring. It is a very unique shade to my collection.
Merveille is described as a lilac rosewood. It is even more purple than I was expecting and I LOVE it. It has full dense pigment that rivals a liquid lipstick. It has lovely, ultra fine, delicate, dimensional shimmer. Like Attirance it lasts for hours and leaves only a hint of shimmer behind after it evenly wears away.
Swatches in natural lighting:
When I first saw Merveille I thought it looked pretty close to Troublant from Fall 2012 (another HUGE love of mine) but they are quite different as shown below. Merveille is decidedly more purple while Troublant is more of a brown plum.
I purchased the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss glosses ($32 US/$40 CAD) at Macy’s when I was in Buffalo, NY. They are available at Holt Renfrew and select The Bay in Canada. They are available online at Nordstrom.
