Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Triomphal ($32/ #517) is one of the most dramatic products.  As with the others in the line, Triomphal comes in the elegant, heavy tube.  I have to say, I love this design.

The consistency is a rich glossy lipstick–the product is opaque in one swipe.  Unlike a lipstick, there is a rich glossy finish. Triomphal is a rich red with very tiny fuchsia microsparkles.  It’s the liquid lipstick version of Chanel Rouge Allure Famous (reviewed here).

Here is the rich red Triophal next to the other reds in the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss line–the deep red Fatale, the softer strawberry Emoi and the rich fire-engine red Exces.

 Triomphal is absolutely gorgeous.  Here is one coat on Liz (no liner or base):

You’ll also see the nude toned Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance re-repromoted with Holiday 2011 (reviewed here).

  1. How close would you say it is to Fatale?

    • Heather–it’s close–both are very deep jewel red. The difference is that Triomphal has more defined shimmer and fuchsia undertone, so Triomphal is more dramatic. Fatale is day/formal and night. Triomphal is really more for evening in my opinion.

      • Thank you very much! They looked very similar to me in your swatches so thanks for educating me on their differences!

  2. Hi Amy,

    Timing can’t be any better. I am looking to get myself a stunning redish lipstick…. here is a tough question for you – Triomphal or Le Metier de Beaute Bordeaux Lip Cream or Chanel Allure Famous? I am debating between these 3 ( and who knows maybe something from Guerlain)


    • That is a tough one! I say it’s between Triomphal (has a touch of sheerness) and Bordeaux (more pigmented)–it really depends on whether you want to full opacity or not. I hope this helps!

  3. I am waiting to get my hands on Extrait de Gloss in Discretion. I think only Neiman Marcus received it?? It’s a nude shade. I was told that one of the locations finally got it but only a tester so far. It came out w/this collection but not every department store is getting it 🙁 It’s not on the Chanel site either. I wish they wouldn’t do that!

    • I cannot find Discretion–if you find it anywhere kindly let us know?

      • I should find out tomorrow if there are any available coming in. I spoke with Kathy Shoreman – the SA who only has a tester and she said she will find out more tomorrow and let me know. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. Would you say this and In the Know Bordeaux are similar? I ordered ITKB as well as Belle du Nuit from Dior but this color keeps calling me for some reason, but I don’t want similar lipsticks!

    • Yes Karyn–Triomphal is slightly more sheer and a bit more fuchsia. Otherwise, they are both deep dramatic glossy shades.

  5. […] Rouge Extrait de Gloss in Triomphal (reviewed here) is stunning.  It’s a gorgeous red that complicated yet classic.  I love everything that […]

  6. Amy do you know if this is a permanent shade?
