Review: Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss in Merveille

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are happy and healthy.

Yeah, I am back from a fortnight's vacation. It was super duper fun with the entire family getting together for a wedding and my husband's parent's house warming family. Those 3-4 days were full of madness and chaos. I can't express in words how wonderful this vacation was and I am still trying to bring myself back to Mumbai. While in this chaos me and my sister - in - law sneaked time to do some make-up. Well, I did her make-up for the main function, i.e. the wedding reception and a engagement which was a simple day function. Will share the looks here in next couple of posts.

Coming to this post, it was supposed to be up just before I left for the vacation, but forgot to schedule it. For product pictures and swatches click here.

This lipgloss is part Chanel's Spring 2013 collection 'Collection Printemps Precioux De Chanel', which was launchd in India about a month back.

Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss is supposed to be luxuriously smooth and silky gel like textuure that is high intensity, high shine and long wearing formula, which doesn't feel sticky or tacky and imparts a luxurious shine and color to your lips. True to every claim made by the company for this product.

Merveille is described as lilac rosewood color with very fine pink shimmer. I can't believe how easily wearable this shade is, it's already my everyday go to shade. Love its opacity considering it's a gloss. It coveres every bit of pigmentation in giffy. I need two coats of the product to completely cover my lips.

On longevity, it lasts much longer than any of the lipglosses I have ever used. It lasts for around 5 hours on my without fading and slight drinking and eating. When, I am writing this post it's already 7+ hours I applied this gloss, and I can still feel the product on my lips even after a full meal. It's nicely hydrating my lips and I don't feel any dryness on my lips and the need to apply any lip balm, though the product is completely faded.

It has doe-foot sponge applicated which is tapered from both the sides, similar to applicators of Revlon Colorburst lipglosses, but smaller in size. The applicator is aptly sized to fit in the natural curves of lips.

The tube is a sturdy black plastic tube with company's logo embossed in white. The tube is heavier than other Chanel glossimers or lispticks, no idea why....

Pricier at INR 2100/-, but, this product is going to last you a lot longer as you need very tiny amount to do the job.

Overall, it's a lovellyyy lilac rosewood shade, which doesn't remeble to any other shades from my collection. It's completely opaque, it hydrates and it lasts much longer for a lipgloss, true to all the claims that the company makes regaring this product. What more would you want from a lip product. A complete winner for me. Go and try it yourself. I am sure you will love it.

Here are a few pictures of me wearing this lovely product.

I hope you all found the review helpful and liked the product on me.

Stay tuned for looks from my recent vacation which I did on myself and my sister - in - law.

Lots of love

  1. in certain lights this color looks so amazing on you...its quite a lovely mauve tone and I think its best to apply in evenings or in ambient lights (not yellow though as it would turn muddy)

    Lovely color.
