Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipsticks: Swatches

September 1, 2012

Chanel has just launched a reformulated Rouge Allure Luminous Intense lipsticks ($34 each) and two new colors of Le Crayon Levres Lip Definer lip pencils ($29 each). When I placed my order, the kind Nordstrom Seattle Chanel Studio (downtown) provided these for our assistance. The counter has these in stock now ((206) 628-2111). These are available online at

The new Chanel Rouge Allure line has intense colors with several gorgeous reds. There are few neutrals in this particular line.

To start, here are some red Rouge Allure Intense. First is the fire red Incandescente 
(#97), the orange-red Coromandel 
(#98), the blue-red Pirate (#99), the raspberry red Palpitante 
(# 102), and the intense blue-red Passion (#104).

 One more red Rouge Allure Intense lipstick swatch–the intense pearly Inimitable (#105). In addition, there is a deep toned Rouge Profond Le Crayon Levres Lip Definer(#57). In addition, here are swatches of a pink coral Enjouée (#95) together with an intense apricot Excentrique Le Crayon Levres Lip Definer (#96).

Here are the pink Rouge Allure Intense– a soft pink Séduisante (#91), the soft cool pink Secrète (#92), the intense fuschia Exaltée (#93), the blue intense pink Extatique (#94). In addition, Chanel has released an amazing Fuchsia lip liner (#55).

There are some softer beiges and browns in the new Chanel Rouge Allure Intense line–first, the pink beige Gracile (#89), and the soft peach Pimpante (#90). In addition there is another version of Chanel’s legendary Rouge Noir (#109), a blackened red that turned classic the moment that it was released. For those looking for deeper tones, there is Déterminée (#108), a purple brown. Finally, Chanel has included the Le Crayon Levres Lip Definer in Rouge Noir (#9), which I believe has been part of the range for some time.

I hope you find this helpful. The lipsticks are available online at

    Thanks for the swatches and the descriptions. I have been so intrigued by these, but did not want to order blind. Many of the on-line sales point swatches are not as good as these.

    Thank you so much for swatching these! Chanel’s red lipsticks have a special place in my heart, and I have been so excited about the new RA release, but my counter is oddly slow to receive products. With your photos, buying online is a possibility now.

    I always enjoy your posts, and your pictures are always of such excellent quality. Even if you can’t post often, I hope you do maintain the blog. It is a wonderful resource. I am truly thankful to you for sharing your experiences via Cafe Makeup.

    I had the opportunity to go and hand swatch the colors in which I was interested last week. I swatched Séduisante, Secrète, and Gracile. Because another reviewer found that the crystalline shine did not last long on her, I decided to give the colors time to set before making a purchase. When I checked the swatches about 20 minutes later, all three of these distinct pink shades had turned practically the same shade of orange on me. I was so disappointed! RA has always been one of my favorite formulations, but it looks like this one is not for me 🙁 Since RA Intense is a new and quite different formulation, it would probably be a good idea to test before purchasing just to be sure it is going to work for you.

    My experience aside, these really are gorgeous, vibrant shades that feel feather light and have a lovely crystalline finish. If the formula works for you, you’ll have some beautiful modern color options from which to choose. Unfortunately, my only options ended up being orange, orange, and orange! LOL Hopefully, you’ll all have much better luck with them.

    That pencil looks creamy and amazing–and those lipsticks….*sigh* 😀

    Ordered Extatique – your swatch looks lovely – hope I don’t have the same experience as Eileen with the color turning on me!

    I also took the opportunity to pre-order one of the FNO limited edition nail polishes – Provocation.

    I ordered 3 of these gorgeous lipsticks. The formula worked great on me — very creamy and pigmented. They don’t have that same sheen to them as the old RA lipsticks, but the color payoff is fabulous! Extatique is my very favorite, but I love Seduisante for an every day shade.

    Fabulous pictures & post as always, Amy!! I don’t see Evanescente, though, the shade that they use for Haute Couture A/W 2012/13. Any news on when this shade will be released? Thanks!!
