The stunning color of Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color is the result of a concentration of ultra-thin pigments specially designed to magnify shade intensity. Lighter hues have a "unique presence," revealing nuances and depth. Darker tones heighten the drama, with audacity and pure elegance for an ultra-feminine effect.
Color brilliance is only part of the story of Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color. Special hydrating agents and antioxidants, rich in green tea extract and sappan wood (East Indian redwood) will leave lips supple and protected for lasting comfort, while tea butter will ensure that your color endures for ultimate wear.
There are 16 shades of Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color - a dizzying array from which to choose. They are categorized as Reds, Corals, Pinks, and Beiges/Browns. As I tested them at Neiman Marcus, I found most of them to be intense (after all, isn't the intense lip - the red lip - the "thing" for the coming seasons?).
What can I tell you, now that I've worn the new Rouge Allure? It's opaque and offers a satin finish, with just a little radiance during the first 30 minutes. Any "shine" disappears after that. It does feel pretty good on my lips - not gooey as I like them - and it is long-lasting.
If you are a Rouge Allure fan, want to try this new version of the iconic lipstick, or are just curious about adding some drama to your fall look, get over to a Chanel counter. You can also see the shades and order at Chanel's Web site.
