Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick comes in a classic black scratch proof casing. There is the signature interlocked C engraved at the bottom of the case.

The packaging is quite different. The lipstick is the golden part, which completely fits inside the black cover.

Shades Available :


The shade Genial is a bright coral pink colour. It’s not one of the shades that would notย  look good on most complexions and also the kinds that would require minimal eye and cheeks makeup. Because when Genial is on your lips, everything else tends to fall flat.

The texture of the lipstick is creamy, it stays on for long, is moisturizing and does not bleed or feather on your lips.It does wear off to a large extent after a full meal.

It has a silky texture and has a faint rosy smell to it.

Despite all the good things about this lipstick, I didn’tย  fall in love with it for a long time. Every time I used to apply this lipstick, my lips used to have that lipstick-bleeding kind of look to them . I tried to wear it with different looks but there was something wrong that I wasn’t able to figure out.

A few days back Rima was telling me about her YSL lipstick and her description of the texture was quite similar to the Chanel Rouge Allure. She mentioned that since the lipstick is so creamy, the right way to apply it is to dab it on your lips than to swipe it like a regular lipstick.

I thought okay may be I’ll try that as well..

And Voila!!!

It worked.The application came even. It didn’t look as if the color was feathering or bleeding. It was the exactly way I wanted it to look. ๐Ÿ™‚

The application completely changed the look of the lipstick.

I have worn this color a few times now and I completely love it.

And here is me wearing. I have worn it lightly for the day but you can brighten it up and completely to rock it during your evenings as well.

    1. :rotfl: You will have to stay in a place without auto/car/bus/bullock cart so you don’t manage to reach a MAC store…and no internet/telephone/electricity also…then you will save some money. Still I think you will find a MAC store!

      1. hahahah i really wish … pls show this is post to my boss … i already made a dent in my hubby’s pocket now its time for boss’s bank account

        1. lol!! You just give me the address, Rashmi. And I’ll make her feel so guilty that she would start paying you for free. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Just to add Poornima…

      Although this is not everyone shade, the main Chanel Boutique here is left with only one or two pieces of this shade. Who would believe that? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. what an EXCELLENT shade rati!!!!! i can’t stop staring at the swatch!! :inlove:
    and we all have something to learn from each other :blush:
    and the clickety thingy is so cool. if i lay my hands on this, i’ll keep clicking it again and again and again…

    1. I know you would like it. I guess by now we all know your shades. Bright and colorful. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Btw I saw a college girl wearing this same shade. Was looking lovely on her. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Watched Inception today. Boy!! One hell of a movie. I don’t think out Indian directors have a nerve to make movies like this. Must watch!

      Not liking this picture too much though. Sanjeev says I was trying to highlight my dimple. Men!!! grrrrrrr..

      1. i’ve heard a lot of good stuff about inception. the only bright colour that’s missing in my collection is red. wondering whether i should buy one? confused.

        1. You can pick one from the color sensational range. It wouldn’t hurt you too much if you don’t get t use it that often. ๐Ÿ™‚

          go watch inception. You’d be awed by the kind of subjects these international movie makers pick.

  4. Rati…pink, rouge, and peaches all suit you so well, I will never be able to carry it off though….. :-* :-*

  5. Idrops Rashmi, com’n//////you richie lady buy all the MACs in the world and then you don;t have money for Chanel…….don’t tell me………………………… ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. This is an absolutely fantastic shade, Rati, and you look so good with peaches and corals. They really light up your face. Loved the swatch on your hand – the lipstick looks so full of colour. (Just emailed you).

  7. Hellllloooo Dolly!!!!!

    You look very cute with this bubblegum-candyfloss pink… YEah it looks more pink than Coral… Maybe because you applied it lightly….

    But fabulous on you!!!! I can surprisingly carry such shades despite of a dark complexion… So would love it…
