Chanel Rouge Allure Rayonnante

DSCN9888

Desperately on the hunt for a bold lip shade that isn’t labelled as red, I stumbled upon Chanel Rouge Allure Rayonnante, a bright fuchsia shade with light dustings of purple, which made me dip my toe into new waters. A ravishing shade that fits about perfectly in this awkward seasonal transition to spring. Awkward because one day it would be surprisingly warm which results in overexcitement that’s naturally being translated into me replacing my winter coat for a lighter alternative only to be welcome outside with a cold, windy and probably rainy day. Welcome to Belgian weather. So whatever the weather conditions, come shine or rain, this beautiful shade will always fit in – instantly perking up a gloomy day.

The lipstick that gets all the attention from me and everyone else around me – so it seems: Chanel Rouge Allure Rayonnante. 

Whilst there is no doubt about the shade being a perfect fit, the love goes much further than that. It’s paired with one exquisite formula on which – of course – all coveted adjectives apply. The creaminess smoothes effortlessly over your lips ensuring an even and opaque application without accentuating eventual flaky bits or fine lines, leaving a beautiful luminous satiny finish behind. It has a featherlight formula which guarantees a day with comfortable and supple lips. It may not beat a trusty balm formula but at least your lips are fully dressed in one beautiful shade – and I’m a matte advocate after all. It stays put for over impressive 6 hours without budging or smudging, after which it slowly fades into a pretty and even stain – no need to stress about that dreadful ring of lipstick. The lipstick that gets all the attention from me and everyone else around me – so it seems. It’s probably the most complimented lipstick ever. I can already imagine this being my signature lips for the upcoming months.

    omg that first fought. the colors picks up on the fuchsia in the tube and in the background so well. such a good balance and repetition of color! lol the formula sounds like a dream too. i think i saw all the new swatches on tempatlia so i might have to keep them in mind if i decide to get a new lipsticks. i mean…just having those interlocking CC’s would be nice, but a formula and color that deliver is even better.

      Hi Jenn. Thanks you for the compliment! ^^ Yup, I was also very surprised how amazing the formula is. So far, the best from the Chanel range in my opinion! I haven’t tried the new Rouge Cocos though – I’d be broke otherwise. Let me know when you try them, I’m curious to know which shade you’ll pick. Can’t wait to get more of this range, aarghh!

        ha! the worst is when you fall in love with a formula. i’m convinced i need all the Estee Lauder Pure Envys now lol. yes….all the colors even the ones that don’t work. (not really)

          Oh haven’t tried Pure Envy yet. I’ve only heard great things about them though … Ahh, curiosity is rising to the surface again! Haha, I have the same feelings about this range! ;)

    Oh HOT DAMN GURL! I love that shade! I totally thought it was going to be more of a pure bold pink shade but I love the fuchsia undertone to it! It looks brilliant! I totally need to own a chanel or two in the lippie department!

    Thanks Hahn – means a lot to me! This is by far my favourite formula from Chanel, I haven’t tried their new Rouge Coco range though. I hope to be able to properly enjoy spring soon and I wish you the same! The weather was terrible today :( X

    That is a really beautiful shade on you, Alice!
    Chanel Rouge Allure is my favorite formula from Chanel lipstick range – that is even after trying the new Rouge Coco. :)

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh thank you, Lena! And I haven’t tried the new Coco range, I’m very curious to see what it has to offer, but I can already imagine preferring this formula over the new Rouge Coco because of the finish alone … X
