Chanel Spring 2013 introduces the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Merveille ($32 / #69). We’re huge fans of this formula, and Merveille delivered more of the qualities that we adore from this line.

Chanel Merveille is a complex mauve shimmer formula that seems to glide over lips and leave a smooth, glossy finish. Here is a swatch next to Chanel’s other Extrait de Gloss released with this collection (Attirance/ review to come soon).

Here is a look on Liz using Chanel Merveille, together with Tom Ford Gold Dust Bronzer.

I like the way that this blue liner works with the cool tones in Chanel Merveille. Bottom line: We love Chanel Merveille. Merveille certainly plays well with my mauve undertones, and coordinates well with Liz’s lighter warm skin. I believe Chanel Merveille will coordinate beautifully on those with neutral to cool skin tones. Love.

    I picked this one up as well and I’m loving it, too. It works beautifully on my fair, cool-toned complexion. I fell in love with the formula after buying Troublant in the fall, and I intend to buy more in this line.

    I was doing very well with my January ban…until I saw this. Oh well – it’s beautiful!

    I simply love this color and it really sparkles in the light. Probably the first color I have ever wanted to buy a second one of, just in case. lol

    I purchased Merveille as soon as I saw it – love at first sight! The color is gorgeous and I love the Extrait de Gloss formula (this purchase was my 5th and I’m sure there will be more in the future).

    I went to nordstroms to try this on and loved it! Finally decided to buy it, THEN they decide to tell me it was sold out. So frustrating! Mentioned that maybe they should take it off the display then, but apparently they aren’t allowed to in case people want to order it online. They weren’t sure if they would get more either. So just a tip, it’s looking like this one may sell out quickly!
