Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in #52 Génie.

i love the formula of the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, so when i was searching for a good peach lip colour i quickly remembered that Chanel had one in their Extrait de Gloss range.
#52 Génie is a non-shimmery bright peachy coral. the consistency is thick and creamy but only little sticky. it has a good opacity, although not milky it covers your lips in a wash of colour with one thin coat. it has a highly glossy shine and feels smooth on your lips. i like that you don't need a thick layer but still have a nice brightening effect, it makes my lips look juicy and lush, but never feels goopy. these glosses have good moisturising properties and leave my lips soft and smooth. Génie stays on for about 3-4 hours on me, without eating but careful drinking and a lot of chit chat.
i also like the sleek packaging a lot. it's a heavy black lacquered glass tube with a black metal cap - these glosses feel very hefty and worthy in your hands. the flexible applicator fits perfectly on the curves of your lips, also it grabs the perfect amount of product each time.
the downside of the packaging is that you can't see how much product you have left (but in fact i find half-empty or nearly emptly gloss tubes very unesthetic - i would much prefer opaque packagings).
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss contains 8g (which is quite a high amount for a gloss) and cost 29.95€.
i ordered on douglas.de and with the code LLF354 i got a Lolita Lempicka "First" purse spray (7ml) since my order was above 39€.

in the end, the colour of Génie looks beautiful but still is a tad too coral compared to what i'm searching for. i'd like it a bit more yellowish-orange-peach. in fact i'm searching for a shade like MAC's Ember Glow - but less milky. i'm going to look into Dior's Addict lipstick in 343 Miss Dior, but do you have any other recommendations?


  1. Gut, dass du den hier gezeigt hast. Ich wollte ihn mir grade kaufen, aber das ist nicht das, wonach ich gesucht hatte ;P

    yay, Geld gespart! :D

    Liebe grüße

  2. ...bin langsam wirklich neugierig auf diese Lacke...hab neulich schon so einen wunderschönen roten gesehen! Werde mir die mal genauer anschauen :D

    Vielen Dank fürs Vorstellen ;)

    Liebste Grüße


  3. I've had this one on my wishlist for a while, it looks lovely in your swatches! Revlon Coral Reef also looks pretty. Thanks for the review and swatches!

  4. Die Extraits de Glosse sind mMn die besten Glosse in Bezug auf Farbintensität und Haltbarkeit. Ich habe die Farbe Émoi und liebe sie. Dafür zahle ich gerne ein kleines Sümmchen, da meine Erwartungen voll erfüllt werden.

  5. I love this gloss!

    If you're looking for a straight up orange/peach I would suggest Ellis Faas Glazed lips L307

  6. I know it's not what you're looking for, but I still think Genie looks absolutely amazing on you!

  7. ich find die farbe sehr schön aber ich weiß was du meinst ;-)


  8. I agree with Tiffany, I think this looks adorable on you. No suggestions but let me know if you find something good! I'm looking for the same thing.

  9. thank you everyone! sadly ellis faas was sorted out in germany :( but i wasn't convinced by her products from the two cream blushes i tried from her...
    there are 3 products on my wishlist right now: dior addict in dior kiss, mac supreme sheen in gotta dash and a pout polish by sleek that looks really orange ;) i'll see what i'll get from these and of course you'll see too :)


thank you for commenting!
