Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss 16 Extase (Colour and Shine Lipgloss in One Click) is one of the new glosses released as part of the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection. The new Chanel Rouge Allure glosses are more pigmented and less sticky than the Extrait de Gloss line, which is rumored to be discontinued soon and being replaced by the new Rouge Allure Gloss Collection.

The Rouge Allure Glosses also seem to be more hydrating or moisturizing, even compared to the regular Chanel Glossimers. Although, this might be because the shimmers in these new Rouge Allure glosses are not as drying compared to most EdG and Glossimers. Based on my experience, lip products containing shimmers are more likely to be drying on my lips. I still love shimmery makeup, but I much prefer my lipstick or lipgloss to be moisturizing. Surprisingly, these glosses are not drying on me. 🙂

ROUGE ALLURE GLOSS COLLECTION
Colour and Shine Lipgloss in One Click

The colour intensity of a lipstick. The lacquered shine of a lipgloss. In one seductive click, ROUGE ALLURE GLOSS delivers dramatic, long-wearing coverage with hydrating comfort. Add to the allure with complementary shades of ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour and LE VERNIS Nail Colour.

The Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection had only recently been made available in Manila, along with the Chanel Holiday 2014 Collection Plumes Precieuses de Chanel.

Chanel describes it:

An exceptional gloss to wear like a lipstick. The first gloss that combines lacquered shine with the bold style of an intense colour. A click and a black case that are now part of the ROUGE ALLURE legend. A gloss for women who love lipstick. A lipstick for women who love gloss.

• A high concentration of finely ground pigments for exceptional radiance, intensity and purity.

• The combination of a film-forming polymer and glass microbeads creates a mirror effect and optimises shine with a lacquered effect.

• Two polymers join forces to maintain shine and hold for hours on end.

• A unique blend of active ingredients composed of sappan wood, matcha green tea butter and a Vitamin E derivative known for its ability to moisturise and protect the lips.

Rouge Allure Gloss in 16 Extase is classified as a bright pink. In the arm swatch, it’s not too bright and is just a semi-sheer, medium pink. Extase is less pigmented than Chanel Pirate Rouge Allure Gloss (reviewed here), but it’s still pigmented for a lipgloss, and is definitely more pigmented than Chanel Glossimer Sonate. I’m not even going to compare it with the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks I’ve tried, Rieuse (reviewed here) and Aventure (reviewed here), which are both more pigmented than Extase.

The texture is very creamy and glossy, and it applies evenly and smoothly. It does settle a bit into lip lines, so applying a lip liner or lipstick underneath is recommended. It would also look best on newly exfoliated lips. Even though the finish is that of a lipgloss, it is not sticky. Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Extase feels very light on the lips, like I’m just wearing a liquid lipstick, but the finish is shiny and glossy!

Chanel Extase, not having any shimmers, is very moisturizing on my lips. Since it’s still a lipgloss, it only lasts about 3-4 hours on me, and leaves no stain at all. After eating and drinking, reapplication is definitely a must.

Chanel recommends to pair it with a tone-matching line of Le Crayon Levres for a lacquered result or with a matching Rouge Allure or Rouge Allure Velvet for an intense lacquered result (vinyl effect) as it adds colour intensity and extends hold. For this post, though, I used Chanel Extase lipgloss alone to capture its true color. It is a semi-sheer medium pink that is kind of neutral, it’s not too warm yet not too cool either.

I love the one click packaging as much as I love the case of Extrait de Gloss, they are both classy and elegant, but the new Rouge Allure Gloss is a little bit lighter so it’s a plus for me – I hate carrying heavy stuff in my bag. 😉 It also has the same doe-foot applicator which dispenses the right amount of gloss enough for one application.

I bought my Extase Rouge Allure Gloss from Chanel in Rustans Makati for Php 1,750. It is also available for $34 at both Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Extase is such a demure color and this would be a really good, everyday not-fussy just-classy lipgloss.

Are you a lipstick or a gloss girl, or both? Are you getting Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Extase, too?

  1. Thanks for your great review. I have bought this shade and I really like it. Do you know which shade of Rouge Allure lipstick would be a match for Extase so that I could wear them together? Many thanks. Kate

    • Thanks Kate! I’m glad you like Extase too. So far, the only Rouge Allure I have tried to pair it with is Fleurie and the shimmers in Fleurie kind of mixes with Extase, and the result is a delighful Glossimer-shimmery-like shine. The gloss also cancels out Fleurie’s tendency to dry out my lips, which is a plus, but they still aren’t the perfect match.

      I believe the exact match for Extase is the lip definer that came with the collection, Rouge Candy. When I tried Extase on top of Rouge Candy, the result was a bright and even more cool-toned pink. If you have RA Insolente, you might want to try it with that, too. I had let go of my Insolente more than a year ago so I couldn’t test it for you, but you may tell me what RA shades you have and I’ll try to give you my 2 cents. 🙂

      • Hi, thank you for the very prompt reply. I just checked online and Rouge Candy is not available. I wonder if this was limited edition. I don’t have any RA’s. I’d never bought them in the past as I’ve heard that they can be drying. I have a few Coco Shines including Boheme (which you’ve reviewed) and I like them a lot.
        I was thinking of buying a RA now but Insolente isn’t available either. And Fleurie of which I’d read on blogs when it first came out (I really love this shade) was never available in Europe (I’m from England). I suppose I’ll have get to a Chanel counter and swatch some on my hand ( I don’t want to try lipstick on my lips in the shop). Many thanks for your help anyway. Kate

        • No worries! I was just about to go to bed but I couldn’t resist answering your question. 😉 I checked Harrods online and they have Rouge Candy in stock, but I guess it’s much better to check your local Chanel counter.

          I also seldom try lipsticks directly on my lips when at the counter, and when I do, it’s usually because they’re new testers and I’m the first one to use them. If I really want to try a tester that’s not new, I sanitize it first before applying (just a little amount) on my lips, and then remove it immediately after. Fleurie was an LE and Insolente had already been discontinued, and from the Rouge Coco Shines, you can try Rendez-vous which I believe had been repromoted.

          I’m also going to drop by my local Chanel counter, so I’ll also try to check for you then let’s compare notes. 😀

    • I wore Extase on top of Rouge Allure Craquante earlier today and they were really good together.

      But I was not satisfied yet, so I dropped by the Chanel counter and swatched Extase on top of Rouge Allure L’Exuberante and the result was almost the same as when I used Rouge Candy underneath Extase – they’re really bright together!

      On top of Rouge Allure Surprenante, the effect is a lighter combination much like with Craquante.

      I’m guessing you don’t have problems with pigmented lips, so your choice will just depend on what look you’re going for. If you want a louder color and brighter lips, you can go with either Rouge Candy or L’Exuberante. For a lighter and more subtle effect, you can use Extase with either Craquante or Surprenante.

      Hope this helps! 💞💕
