Favourite Nudes: Chanel Rouge Allure Lipgloss

I know, I know and I'm so sorry. Where do I start? I moved countries, the coveralls part of my name kinda took over, life just got really busy. I'm back now, I can't promise a post every week, but I do promise to be more regular this time.

So,  this will be the first in my favourites series. I will have several, Favourite Reds, Favourite Pinks, Favourite Nudes, etc. Since I love wearing nude lipsticks and glosses, I decided to kick off this series with one of my favourite nude lip glosses, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Troublant. It came out in the Les Essential Des Chanel Collection, Fall 2012 along with a few other colours, but I only picked this one up.

I have pigmented lips so finding a nude that will actually show up on me without making me look "dead" or like Tyrone Biggums is quite a feat. I saw this gloss on the lovely Crystal of crystalis007.com and decided to give it a try and boy, I'm so glad I did. I don't buy luxury make-up all the time, but when I do, I make sure I choose colours that I will wear often to justify spending so much on a lipstick or gloss and enusure I use every last drop of it.

This gloss is perfection!!!! It's such a beautiful, subtle yet complex colour. On me, it comes off as a mauvy pink with tiny tiny flecks of gold. The pigmentation makes it look almost like a liquid lipstick. It's also extremely comfortable to wear. Most of the time I wear it alone, with no liner. When I do wear it with a liner, I use MAC's Burgundy, Currant , NYX's  Espresso or Sleek's Rich Brown

(sorry about the blurry pic)

 I can't remember if I got mine from Nordstrom or Saks but unfortunately, it's not available anymore, as it was limited edition.

What are your favourite nude glosses? I'd love to hear from you :)


  1. Yaaay! I'm so excited about a new post from you. I've truly missed your input on makeup and your enabling ways, hehehe.

    That gloss is so pretty, I like the hint of pink. I just got into nudes myself but don't own any glosses. My current go-tos are MAC Twig, Rihanna X MAC Bad Girl Riri and Wet n Wild Spiked with rum (I don't know if it's even nude per se). And I recently picked up some of the new Maybelline nudes too.

    1. Thank you!!!! I really want one of the new Maybelline nudes, Untainted Spice or so. Looks like it would be a good fit for me. Hmmmn, I may need to check out these your go-to's oh, being the junkie that I am. Bad Gal Riri is LE, so nothing for me.

  2. Oh also looking forward to the reds and pinks too.

    More posts plix!

  3. I'm just starting to get into wearing lipstick I used to be a Mac spite lipgloss only girl. This Nude Chanel looks good on you!!!
