Chanel Rouge Lacque- Love in a Liquid Lipstick


It has been quite a while since I have mentioned Chanel Beauty here, so shame on me. A beloved high end cosmetics brand, I feel like Chanel consistently delivers both elegance and glamour. I am especially fond of their lip products, and swear by the iconic Glossimer lip glosses. Chanel has done it again, and created a winner in the new Rouge Allure Lacque Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer.

The newest addition to the house of Chanel beauty, Rouge Allure Lacque is a hybrid of gloss and lipstick. With the opacity, coverage, and lasting power of a lipstick, and the sheen of lipgloss, Rouge Allure Lacque is a gift from the cosmetic gods. This liquid lipstick applies with a doe foot applicator, and dries down to a glossy satin finish. As with the Glossimers, there is definitely a subtle sparkle present. Wear on this is excellent, and I find the lacquer to be both creamy, and moisturizing.

The shade I ended up ultimately purchasing was Santal, a creamy carnation pink with subtle gold sparkle.

On the lips:


Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque is a must have for any lip product lover. They are pricey, at $33 for a lipstick, but the fact that it is a two in one product should ease the blow a bit. I definitely see myself purchasing at least another shade, and I am thinking that Dragon would be next on the list.

Who else loves Chanel? Are you feeling the new Rouge Allure Lacque?

I love the color! :) I'm a dedicated fan of the lipgloss but I like what you are saying about this one, it covers like a lipstick and has the same lasting effect :) but in also seems to keep some of the lipgloss attributes. Maybe this can be something I've always searched for :) Thanks for posting this Adina.

I wanted to try this lip gloss really badly after seeing it somewhere else, but I'm 99% sure it has parabens in it. Do you know?

The color is absolutely beautiful!

Tavia, you are very welcome. I think if you love the Glossimers already,, then you will adore these new rouge allure lacques. Wonderful product.

Krasey Beauty said...

Clarissa, thanks so much! I love how this color is nearly nude, but with a little something extra. Perfect for everyday wear!

Krasey Beauty said...

Taryn, I agree. As for the parabens, I am not 100% sure on whether or not they are present in this product. Let me look into that for you.

Krasey Beauty said...

Krista, you must get to a counter, if only to see these in person and swatch.

Krasey Beauty said...

Sandra, I am so happy to hear you love these too! Hopefully Santa brings you several more! ;)

I recently picked up this shade due to all the overwhelmingly positive reviews, and it is truly an amazing product. I'm rather conservative on the lippies side, so for me, Santal is perfect for any occasion :)

Forget love, all I need is CHANEL!

Louise, I am thrilled that you love Santal as much as I do. Chanel really hit it out of the park with this new launch.
