As part of Chanel exposition at Harrods/London, Chanel released three new Rouge Allure lipsticks in Hyde Park, Belgravia, and Kensington, each named for notable Harrods locations.  Each of these colors is very fresh and bright.

First, Chanel Rouge Allure Hyde Park lipstick is a pink-coral cream.


On lips, Hyde Park appears very pink with only a hint of the coral infusing the shade:

Chanel Rouge Allure Belgravia was our favorite.  It is a deeper, complex pink with very subtle shimmer:


On lips:

Chanel Rouge Allure Kensington is a gorgeous, saturated pink:

On lips, it’s a very rich pink cream:

Kensington bears a close resemblance to Chanel Rouge Allure in Super, which was released for a limited time last year. Here are some swatches comparing Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks in Kensington, Super, Insolente, Hyde Park and Belgravia.

I’m reviewing these with some trepidation, because I suspect that I will receive numerous comments as to where these can be purchased. As far as I know, they are available at Harrod’s main store in London (Knightsbridge).  I obtained these through a friend who went to the store to purchase them.  If you are not in the UK, and do not know anyone who can get to a store, you may wish to call the store directly to see if they will ship them to you.  Otherwise, please enjoy the pictures and thank you for reading.

  1. Amy, I’m in love with your photos. Hyde Park is do die for. Thank you for posting these!!

  2. They’re all such pretty pinks! I really like Kensington. Looks like a great colour for winter.

  3. Thanks for sharing these colors with us! Regardless of availability, it’s always nice to see less common pieces. My favorite is the Belgravia, too. Good thing my sister has a friend in London . . .

  4. Thank you so much for reviewing these! Very gorgeous! I doubt I will be able to snag any of these but it’s always fun to see other country’s Chanel products. You never can tell if they will bring colors here or not. All three of these colors seem quite different from the numerous Chanel pinks I have in my stash.

  5. Amy, your pictures are great! Oh my gosh! I wish Chanel carried all of the collections on it’s website! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I concur! Your photos are always amazing and as a beauty junkie I really need my fix of everything and anything the luxury lines produce. Please don’t hesitate to share items like these! Thank you!

  7. They’re all so pretty, although I think Belgravia is probably the only one I could pull off. Thanks for sharing with us!

  8. You can order them on harrods.com. The shipping is expensive but if you really want them you can get them.

  9. Kensington looks incredible – I really want to try out some Chanel lipsticks!

  10. Hi Amy,

    I think you can tell from the abundance of comments that we’re not in the least bit bothered by the lack of availability in the US. I’m sure that most of us love to see what is going on in other countries especially by brands that release products in the US as well. Will we get the same colors? Will we eventually get part of the collection? The whole collection? None of the collection? It keeps us on our toes! LOL As always, thanks for the great pictures and swatches.

    Hi Lena,

    I couldn’t agree with you more! It would be great if Chanel made all of it’s collections available on it’s website especially since beauty has become such a global market. One of the features I always love in beauty magazines is where they talk to women from around the world about beauty trends and favorite products.

    • Eileen,
      I think that you once mentioned an eye cream that you use as an eye makeup base?
      If I am right, would you let me know what it was?

  11. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. These are such happy colors! And such a nice reprieve from my rainy day! I used to live in the Kensington/Hyde park area so I definitely have a soft spot for anything named for them 🙂

  12. Hi Amy!
    I am in LOVE with the color of the Kensington lipstick ! It lis the pink that I have been on an eternal search for. I just love the rich creamy finish. But of course it has to be LE and only available in London…. just my luck. I was wondering if you could recommend a dupe or similar lipstick that would be easier to find? From Chanel or another brand, it doesn’t really matter. I would really appreciate it !!

  13. Pretty colors I LOVE PINK!

    My favorite is Belgravia <3
