Lipstick of the day #1 revisited: Chanel Rouge Allure in Enthusiast


My previous post about this lipstick was a bit brief, so I thought I'd do a more detailed review for my red lipstick series.

Enthusiast #64 was the first Rouge Allure lipstick I bought.  In fact it was the first Chanel lipstick I had ever bought.  I was mesmerised by the packaging.

One click and out pops a lipstick.

Its supple, ultra-fine second-skin texture glides smoothly over the lips for a satiny and perfectly luminous makeup result. Shea butter combined with a canola oil derivative provides softness and comfort.

That's how describes this lipstick.  There is no doubt the formula is very smooth, glossy and slightly translucent.  I find it more moisturising than the Rouge Cocos.  But more moisturising means wear-time is not as good as Rouge Coco - after a meal most of the lipstick is gone.

Enthusiast is a true red (on me).  It's not too orange or too blue based.

Because of the sheer formula, I'd recommend this for a red lipstick beginner.


  1. my favorite 2, pity it is not available anymore

  2. Oh really? That's a shame! In UK it seems to be a permanent colour?
