NEW from Chanel: Chanel Collection Rouge Allure Moiré First Look & Quick Swatches

Chanel Rouge Allure Moiré collection

Hey everyone, sorry for the silence around here! Long story short, I got back from Taipei and was immediately slammed with work. I’ve also had to figure my new camera out, and that’s a bit of a learning process. Anyways, I hope to go back to my normal posting frequency soon!

Before Chanel Collection Superstition will finally become available here (I heard mid-August), we’re getting Chanel Collection Rouge Allure Moiré (already in store). Let’s take a quick look at three of the Rouge Allures (RRP in Belgium: 32 euros), a Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (32 euros), and the two Le Vernis (23 euros)!

Chanel Indecise, Farouche, Enigmatique Rouge Allure

What sets this batch of Rouge Allures apart is the fine shimmer in them. According to Chanel, the shimmer is supposed to be subtle while creating a brightening effect. From left to right you see Indécise (125, a rosy beige), Farouche (122, a rich chocolate), and Énigmatique (135, a brown-tinted red).

Chanel Controversy  (72) Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Here you see Controversy Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (72, a vampy eggplant). If you like vampy, this one has definitely got you covered!

Swatches from left to right: IndéciseÉnigmatiqueFarouche, and Controversy

You can maybe spot that while the Rouge Allures are not obviously shimmery (it is very hard to spot the shimmer even close-up), they do reflect light in an interesting way to give them a “texture.”

Last but not least, the two limited edition Le Vernis, Rouge Moiré (595) and Rose Moiré (593):

I need some more time to test all of them out, but you will hear all about how they work soon! I actually took a quick look at the collection the other day and fell in love with one of the limited edition Rouge Allures, Audacieuse (134, a pink-based red). Among other shades, there is also a great bright pink, Surprenante (129), and a coral/apricot, Étonnante (131). Whether you’re looking for something you can rock all around town right now or something that fits a more autumn-y mood, you can probably find it here!

Did you see anything you like here? Which shade(s) would you like to see first? Leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do!

Mostly Sunny disclosure

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Wow some browny shades, hey? I wonder if browns are going to make a come back! Even the lighter one is quite brown! I can hardly wait to see them on you!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I personally hope not because I don’t wear beiges or browns too well LOL

  • Lily

    The swatches didn’t do much for me, but I love how you use the red and black lace background :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Lily! There are some nice bright shades in this collection too. You should take a look!

  • Sara_BeauTime

    Oh did they already land there? That explains how I could find two of the polishes from this collection on eBay like a month ago LOL. I was curious about the lippies but I checked it out and haven’t seen it online here in Germany yet. Maybe arrived to the counters though. I hope I can at least see them before flying to holiday on Friday…

    Indécise seems like a nice nude matching to Rose Moire. Waiting eagerly for your reviews.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sara, yup they’ve been out since August 1st! You always get everything so fast! I hope you’ll get to see the collection soon!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    The color palette of this collection looks a bit like it is aimed at a more mature audience. The swatches don’t really excite me. I love the way you photographed the products though :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Melissa, I think I just happened to end up with the more mature shades! There are some bright ones I’d personally love to wear!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    A bit too dark for my liking. Especially now with the hot weather :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jill, I hear ya! I’m excited about the autumn releases, but just looking at them makes me melt a little LOL

  • Claire

    I like all the colours here, right up my alley! I have to build up my collection on some beiges, peachy tones or rosy something shades, haha. What new cam do you have now Sunny? I feel ya, I have a lot of work to do as well now but I got quite lazy, lol and well, work has to be done anyways 😛

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Claire, Chanel Fantasque is one of my favorite peachy nude! Beiges tend to wash me out. I think the only thing I can pull off (with the right combination) is Dior Incognito!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Lovely pics, Sunny! What kind of camera are you working with now? New cameras are always so exciting!! 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Becca! I got a Canon 650D with a Sigma lens. It’s the heaviest camera I’ve owned, but I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to something that’s not a DSLR LOL

  • Icaria

    Nice but not stunning, I may get more wowed after seing them on you. So you got your new camera! Lucky girl! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, I’m actually not too sure the nude and the brown will look too good on me, but we’ll see 😉

      Yup new camera! I literally break out in a sweat every time I work with it for the blog though! Need some more time to get cozy!

  • Memoiselle

    The nail polish tempts me a lot.. The rouge moire and the rose moire are both so beautiful!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Meryl, I think the finish makes these two interesting! I’ll swatch them soon!

  • LifeOfBun

    Ohh indécise is so pretty.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha I didn’t know you’re a nude lip type of girl 😉

  • Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    Indecise is my fave!! :) everyday nude!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenni, most “nudes” really wash me out, so I might need a lip pencil or something like that for Indecise to work!

  • Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    You’re the devil! I need them all! LOL ughhhhhh

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Aww sorry Brooke! I could easily buy 3 lipsticks from this collection. No joke!

  • Catherine

    Pretty! I’m not ready for darker shades yet, I’m still in shimmery bronze and coral summer mode, but thanks for the swatches

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, same here! I can probably do a bright red if the formula is not too heavy, but with the weather we’ve been having all I want is something bright!

  • Larie

    I like the raisin color of Controversy, but Chanel products never really motivate me to purchases. With the exception of Taboo 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Larie, I was just thinking I should paint my toes with Taboo today!

  • Liz

    Controversy looks amazing! I have such a weakness for Chanel LE goodies. *__*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I wish my favorite shade out of the collection wouldn’t be LE, but it is! Guess I’ll just part with some of my hard-earned euros. Audacieuse really speaks to me!

      Controversy is not limited edition though! You can wait till it cools down if you want 😉

  • VickyM

    Oh I hadn´t heard of this collection is it Europe exclusive? My country gets it´s Chanel products directly shipped from Europe (I´m not from the USA) but some collection might still be exclusive to Europe, I hope not :( . From the swatches I loved Enigmatique lipstick, and I searched for swatches of the other shades you mentioned and I think I really WANT Rouge Allure Surprenante, entirely my type of shade I´m crazy for all shades of pink lipsticks (except for nudes) and Rouge Moire is a very pretty nail polish…Oh dear all the things I want, I can foresee I will end up with at least one Rouge Allure, Surprenante probably…I hope you had a great time in Taipei Sunny 😀 .

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Vicky, I don’t think it’s a Europe exclusive! I’m pretty sure it’ll be available everywhere, I’m just not sure when!

      I did have a great time in Taipei! Now it’s back to work, and work is coming in from everywhere LOL If you do get Suprenante, I hope you’ll love it!

  • MyLuciteDreams

    Ooh gorgeous! I love all the lippy shade especially the Indecise. Also Rose Moire looks beautiful. Love love!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, you wear nudes a lot better than I do, so you might stand a better chance with Indecise (most nudes just really wash me out)!

  • MakeupWithdrawal

    Oh sweetness! Controversy is just divine! I never thought I’d fall for a shade like that but it is GORGEOUS.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Mimi, Controversy is definitely vampier than the majority of my lipstick stash, but that’s what makes it fun!

  • Ruby Chua

    enigmatique is gorgeous! hope to see your FOTD soon. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Ruby, I’ll be working on it 😉

  • Caise

    Rose Moirse looks divine!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Daria, that’s what I prefer out of the two!

  • Teri

    I spot tow really sexy vampy shades! They look promising!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Teri, I’m excited about the eggplant! Don’t think I own anything like that!

  • Kristen / Glambunctious

    I’d love to see that eggplant colored gloss on you! Your posts are getting me in the Fall mood, for sure! LOL @ “looking for something you can rock all around town right now” – I loved that! Good luck getting back to normal after catching up post-trip! Sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation when everything piles up like that!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Kristen, I’ll get down to trying it out as soon as I can! I’m with you on the vacation from a vacation idea, but then again with all the autumn collections rolling out, it’ll never end so I might as well get cracking!

  • peggy timmermans

    I adore Idécise!!!! Can I pretty please have it?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Peggy, I actually think it’ll look much better on you to be honest!
