Getting Into Gloss | Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss


So, it appears I have a new found love for lipgloss. In particular, the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Distinction. Housed in the same click open case as their lipstick counterpart, the design sets them apart from other lipglosses available on the market and provides a sleek and sophisticated appearance overall.

The gloss itself is thick, but applies smoothly to the lips with a medium but buildable coverage. There is some slight tackiness to it, however it doesn't feel overly sticky and seems to prolong the wear on the lips. The colour range is impressive, boasting 11 shades in total and consisting of reds, nudes, pinks and plums. Distinction looks rather dark on the wand, but once on the lips it translates into a medium plum that has the ability to deepen in colour depending on how many layers you apply.


In all honesty this is probably my favourite lipgloss formulation to date. While they're not cheap (they retail at £26, Distinction was a Christmas gift) they contain everything you could want in a lipgloss; smooth application, decent pigmentation, a hint of shine without looking wet and feel hydrating on the lips. Not really a once a week purchase, but they make a great luxurious splurge or a nice gift for the beauty lover.

  6. I've been getting more into glosses lately as well, since matte lips aren't very appropriate when you've got dry chapped lips. This shade is so pretty, and the packaging is so luxurious as well!
