Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Excès (#60) is an iconic red shade. This gloss has a brightness, clarity and warmth, particularly when compared to the deeper cooler tones of Fatale. Excès is a true, bright red that delivers pure color without shimmer.
Excès bears a closer resemblance to Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gabrielle, although Excès is more sheer and certainly far glossier. By comparison, Rouge Coco in Vendome is more brown. Fatale is deeper and bluer than Excès, and Dragon is deeper and much more richly pigmented:
If you already have Chanel Spark Glossimer, you will immediately notice there is a distinct difference between the shades. Excès is more true red than Spark, lacks the Spark’s shimmer; also, Excès is more pigmented than Spark.
