Caprice and Troublant: Rouge Allure Extraits de Gloss for Fall 2012

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss Troubland and Caprice (available here) - $26

A next generation lipgloss with colour so rich and shine so intense, it could only be inspired by the iconic lipstick, Rouge Allure.  Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect. Lips feel comfortable – never sticky or tacky – and look luminous, full and sensuous for hours. The double-sided, flocked applicator is beveled to deliver ultra-precise definition.

Chanel has released two new glossimers with Les Essentiels de Chanel collection for fall 2012 - Troublant and Caprice.   The Rougle Allure Extrait de Gloss formula is something of a hybrid between a gloss and a lipstick, the smooth moisturizing texture of a gloss and the pigmentation of a lipstick.  Troublant is a mauve-plum shade while Caprice is a pale milky pink with a hint of coral to it.

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss - Caprice and Troublant - FOTD

Chanel Rouge Extrait de Gloss in Caprice and Troublant - My Take:  True to the formula, Caprice and Toublant are like thick lipglosses, but I found them on the sheer side - as sheer as any other regular lipgloss, only just a lot thicker.  Caprice is a milky pink with just a hint of coral.  A very sheer milky shade, it doesn't do anything for my very pigmented lips when used on its own.  Topped over a darker lipstick/lipliner, it would work great paired with a darker, smokey eye.  Trouble - described as a dark plum - sheers down to an almost my-lip-but-glossier shade for me.  Again, this would work better with a lipliner to layer over.  Both the glossimers are nondrying but I am not too sure about the longlasting claim - about 2 to 3 hours is the maximum wear I get, and of course, they don't last through a meal.  Overall, the quality and packaging is awesome, its Chanel, but I would think they are colours that you can easily find less expensive dupes for.
