Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Distinction: Review, Swatches

 

Chanel Impertinence Lip Gloss-5

 

I purchased the Rouge Allure Gloss in Distinction (rrp $52 AUD) as I was going through Duty Free last year. I’m a sucker for a glossy berry lip, and even though I have a number of nearly identical berry toned lip products– there’s always room in my heart for one more.

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Distinction is a pigmented cool berry shade with a juicy gloss finish on initial application. It is almost opaque in 2 layers and the pigmentation intensifies with each reapplication through the day.

I feel like it is at it’s most gorgeous when first applied and then loses it’s glossiness quite quickly- becoming more of a cross between lipstick texture and stain on the lips. The product still looks reasonably nice once the shine wears off but what initially drew me to Distinction was the dimensional glossy colour- so it’s a little unfortunate that this aspect of the product is so fleeting. Wear time overall is about 3 hours.

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Distinction is neither drying nor moisturising. As with many dark colours,  (exceptions to this include YSL Glossy Stain in Brun Glace, and at the other end of the price point spectrum- Face Of Australia Lip Paint in Very Berry) it can sometimes settle into lip lines if your lips are dry- so prep lips beforehand if you want this to sit nicely.

Overall- it is a stunning colour on initially application but becomes a bit blah after about 15 mins. For the luxe price point I would hesitate to repurchase
