Chanel Rouge Allure Flamboyante

January 6, 2011

Chanel Rouge Allure Flamboyante ($32 / #84) is a gorgeous red the faintest touch of strawberry pink.  Like the other Rouge Allures, Flamboyante feels very moisturizing and give a slight glow on the lips.

Close up:

You can see Flamboyante’s hint of pink when compared to Chanel Rouge Coco Gabrielle, which looks deeper and slightly more blue by comparison:

When I tried on Flamboyant, something in the heavens shifted and Flamboyante became my new favorite red.  Maybe I’m just in the mood for something a little lighter these days, but Flamboyante adds light to my face and manages to look approachable.  I believe that it would be a lovely “first red” for someone who is shy about wearing reds–a “gateway” red, as it were.

The touch of strawberry pink keeps the tone from looking heavy, and although it feels creamy, there is a lightness that can be very flattering–complimentary rather than overwhelming.  Here is it on Liz (which she is wearing the Chanel’s Joues Contraste in Espiegle:

    Oh, Flamboyante just looks as amazing as I was hoping it would be. Cannot wait for it.
    And I love how Espiegle looks on Liz, I think it has the right amount of pink in it to make it work on me. Btw, which tone would Liz be in MAC foundation (if she knows)?

    Thanks for all the gorgeous pictures :)

    That looks gorgeous on Liz, and I think I might need it. I am pretty close to her coloring, so it is always so helpful to see your pictures.
