The French word “insolence” translates roughly to cheeky, sassy or impertinent in the English language, and Chanel’s Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insolence #57 is fittingly a bold, cool standout pink. Both Liz and I instantly feel in love with Insolence as a great everyday color. Although we are both warm-toned and fair, we both love a good candy pink. In case you are wondering, she’s now Insolence’s proud owner of the gloss–but I’ll be buying my own Insolence as soon as Chanel releases the Extrait de Gloss in the U.S.
